What's funny is that it was a very minor notion, a question I edited in afterward. If I'd thought more about it, maybe I'd have phrased it in a less flippant manner, but I'm afraid I never learned to give much weight to sexual orientation and often forget that the question sometimes goes over like a lead balloon.
Honestly, I wish I hadn't asked in the first place.
But since I did, I suppose I'll point out that it's a fascinating reversal of prejudices in the future you paint, Nerys. Is it any better to attach social approbrium to a person on account of their faith than it is on account of their desires?
Fwiw, I forgot Sam was even a canon character. It has been almost two decades since I've seen Lower Decks.
