(Meta) The grand Buffyverse sexuality survey!
This came from a suggestion by candleanfeather , which I've expanded into a fullscale survey on as many Buffyverse characters as I can fit into an LJ poll. :-) The idea is simple enough: rate each person on whether you think that they're gay, straight, or somewhere in between, using the Kinsey Scale.
For the purpose of this poll, I'm looking for either what you think is actual canon, or what you think ought to be canon if only the writers had been willing to go there... but not for what even in your most slashfilled dreams you acknowledge could only be crack!fic. Assume also that I'm talking about souled Angel and Spike, since vampire sexuality is an entire other can of worms...
0 - entirely straight 1 - mostly straight 2 - fairly straight (or, bi but prefers the opposite sex) 3 - bisexual (prefers both sexes equally) 4 - fairly gay (or bi, prefers same sex) 5 - mostly gay 6 - entirely gay.
Please feel free to expand on your answers in comments. Or criticise me for missing out your favourite character; or tell me that the Kinsey Scale is archaic and discredited or that it's wrong to reduce human sexuality to a series of numbers; whatever... :-) And for the benefit of the more pedantic among us, I'm also asking for your opinion on their sexual orientation, not sexual experience (which is what the Kinsey Scale was originally devised to measure.) Also, feel free to pimp this survey vigorously to get as much varied feedback as possible!
