Is sheldon cooper's character supposed to be gay?
Not Jim Parsons but his character
He does not seem to be interested in women I have never seen him try to pursue them and even if he likes a girl he seems oblivious when a girl likes him back Updates:
It's funny how when I ask if he's gay it's so offensive, but if I asked if he is straight it would not be a problem Fucked up double standards
Antagonistic opinions that cause only negativity will be reported and blocked without question. I already gave mho Most Helpful Guy
Not gay, just extremely non-sexual.
Jim Parsons has been gay his whole life though so I think that comes out a little in his portrayal of the character.

Nah, because he dosent approach guys either, I think he's just very detached from people, and dosent really understand intimacy

His character is consitent with someone who hass Asperger syndrome, OCD (obsessive-complsive disorder) and Asexuality.
Asexuality is someone who lacks sexual desire. So no, he is not gay. This was a pretty stupid question to be honest. But your picture is super hot so I will allow it.
I think that his character is so caught up in his work and so socially awkward, that he just does not pursue women. But, I do not think his character on The Big Bang Theory is supposed to be gay. I remember there was one episode where he and Penny did some experiment to see if they were in love... or something.
I knew the guy was gay the first time I laid eyes on him. So much for his acting chops.
You know I've been thinking the same thing ever since I first saw him. He shows no interest in girls in every show he appears on, doesn't even give off a vibe
If Sheldon were to pursue a sexual or romantic relationship with a man, that and only that would make him gay.
Disinterest in women is not an indicator by itself.
No I think he's supposed to be just a geeky nerd who would pick a computer over women, but the actor himself is gay.
Jim Parsons has a certain "flair" that he brings to the character.
Sheldon himself is reserved. I assumed he was straight since he was in a relationship with a woman, loved her and was willing to propose and reproduce with her.
He displays symptoms of aspergers and asexuality - aspergers suffer have problems in social situations, asexual people feel no need to procreate
No, because now he does have a girlfriend and has made out with her and had sex with her, he's not gay, he just appears to have a very very low sex drive
He just got laid on Thursday!
He has sex with his girlfriend in the most recent episode.
Sheldon Cooper is an asexual nerd who chooses technology and his work over women. Jim Parsons is gay

No he's supposed to have aspergers. And probably be asexual.
Funny that if a guy isn't constantly chasing girls it's safe to assume he's gay? (Even though he doesn't chase guys either)
He is not supposed to be gay but being gay he is good at acting disinterested in woman which is a major part of his character.
Lol, which season are you on?
SHELDON JUST HAD SEX 😄 with a girl.
You must not have seen the entire show. He has a girlfriend and even kisses her. He does have little interest in women in most of the seasons but he have grown more into it.
No, he's not gay. He does get involved with a girl, afterall. However, his character is asexual.
He gets a girlfriend, they just go very very very x10000 slowly forward to the next steps
No he'a not. The actor is though. He's just socially inept..
I don't think he is gay. Like aoifeisloveable said, he's just detached. Even tough recently, (Spolier Alert: he did have sex with the girl with glasses he is currently seeing, and he did seem to enjoy it.)
Nah, i recognize a fellow asexual when i see one.
He's never pursued a guy either so he could just be asexual.
