I refuse to fault Tasha for "use" when that android got the better part of the bargain, by far. And if it feels that good being used, then use me
, Tasha ... until you use me up.
You know ... one might've suspected that Data's investigations into - and experiments with -Human relationships would've included some attempt at Homosexuality - that's only speaking to the "truth" of the character, now. Would it even be possible for a machine to actually have a sexual preference, without the instinct to reproduce, as we have? It doesn't make a lot of sense.
Granted, I cannot see Brent Spiner being interested, personally, in a kissing scene with another man, but that never had to happen onscreen, anyway, and I am actually happy that this wasn't explored. But many have decried the lack of gays on STAR TREK and I think Data should've been the character, if any, to explore this openly ... (and not metaphorically, as Riker had with his gender neutral lover).
