I know I posted this in some threads, but I felt this was important. So those who played Left Behind and think that Ellie is gay, I'd like to propose this fact. Other than the fact the Ellie is still too young for a sexual orientation..... what about SAM?! I don't have a problem with her being gay..... but how can she be gay if she clearly had an attraction for Sam as well?
Sam and her were just friends... It could've been something more, but ya know. Anyways, she just was in the heat of the moment, and didn't know what to do. This does not mean she is openly "gay" or bisexual. A kiss on the lips shows affection, nothing more, nothing less.
I think you're looking far too much into this. When was any sign of attraction displayed towards Sam?
Yes there was. A growing one. Remember her last conversation with Sam? She even said her biggest fear was being alone. So in other words, as long as there is someone that she can feel connected to, she will feel/loved, etc. And the robot?
And their conversation did hint that she was slowly growing a closer bond. I just wish he hadn't dies. Maybe we would've known how Ellie really felt?
Ellie was desperately looking for a connection with anyone at that time. Besides, she only knew Sam for how long? Like two days?
Besides, just because Ellie told him of her fears, doesn't mean that she had shown affection towards him...
I think that Ellie simply took the robot because she wanted a good friend... and what would be a better way to start a freindship?
There was no evident attraction to Sam that would dispel any suggestion that she is homosexual. What an utterly stupid proposal.
Also, declaring she is too young (13 years old) to determine her sexual orientation is as equally as ludicrous.
