He's cool, unpredictable,phsycopathic, and is much cooler than the question..but is he homosexual.
clue 1) he holds on to dan's hand pretty long
clue 2) his complete dislike for women and their clothing....the only real gender he is known to hangout eith is men...meaning Nite owl.
He treats Dan like an ex-lover and Rorschach acts like the bust down who pops in to visit and eats his food..........voice your opinions
Just went out for a cigarette.
Thought about this.
Fell guilty to admit I haven't read ALL of this thread (c'mon - it's just got *too* big...) but I just wanna throw my two bits in.
The argument for Rorschach's alledged homosexuality seems to focus around the line "possibly homosexual, must remember to investigate further" line.
I dismiss this because:
- the reasons given above regarding Kovac's uncomfortability when forming relationships
- his asexuality shown by dislike of sexual encounters
The main reason I have is that I think that Rorschach sees himself as a criminal investigator and as this he must explore EVERY avenue that leads away from the crime. Thus, Rorschach wants to investigate every aspect of anyone connected to the deceased in order to understand their personalities and possibly rule them out as suspects - see 6.18.1 "1975. Kipnap case. Perhaps you remember". Everything is a "case" to him. The language he uses is that of a cop/private eye. He sees the world as a detective.
This is not a "oooo is he gay, maybe we could hook up" line (apologies for the crudeness), this is a serious line of investigation to Rorschach
Be seeing you.
