Guess Who's Not Gay On The Big Bang Theory!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayLGBT


Apparently, geeks across the nation have speculated of the sexual orientation about one Sheldon Cooper on Big Bang Theory. Some argue he is gay, some say a-sexual.

Well, either way, you are wrong. The definite answer was given by the executive producer Chuck Lorre about Jim Parson's character and the answer is…"other."

If you are scratching your head, give it a rest and ponder this explanation from Chuck for a second. Chuck says:

“His entire focus is on the work that he’s doing — theoretical physics. ‘Alternate reality’ is another way of looking at it. Characters like Sheldon are drawn to an alternate reality that might be more comforting than the ones they live in. And why modify that? Why not let the character be that unique?”

Um, because it's WEIRD?!

Guess that just how this show functions though, which is why we've never seen an episode.

But does that explanation satisfy U fans out there?

    Who gives a fuck? Seriously, who gives a fuck? Unless these people are in a relationship with you why would you care?

  2. 2

    That explanation is not weird Perez. Watch the show once, it is pretty funny and the Sheldon character is an absolute total geek. I cannot imagine Sheldon being sexual with anyone or anything unless he has the hots for a molecule.

  3. 3

    DUDE! the big bang is one of my favorite fucking shows, next to My name is Earl and HIMYM…Sheldon is totally just too preoccupied with his brainpower to even begin to think with his dick- for any one man or woman…maybe a comic book though now that I think about it..

  4. 4

    Again, you prove that you are an idiot. This show is HILARIOUS!

  6. 6

    u think everybody should be GAY…U fu@kin Retard

  7. 7

    This was also on oh no they didn't…by the way.

  8. 8

    Sheldon makes the show!
    and how can you call something werid if you've never seen it?
    stop being such a hater

  9. 9

    Pigeon holes are not good Pervez. Ask those who are stuck in them by people like you.

  10. 10

    I don't care who/what he prefers. As long as he keeps on being funny!

  11. 11

    i love that show.
    i often wish i had something that i would be so wrapped up in, find so fulfilling that relationships and sex were irrelevant to me. that kind of security is enviable.

  12. 12

    That show is one of the most brilliantly written and acted shows on TV right now and a refreshing break from all the crappy reality shows. Those who follow the show know that in Sheldon't mind there is no one on earth who is "equal" to him so there's no way he'd be interested in either males or females so his sexual orientation is a moot point. lol

  13. 13

    no weirder than being gay.

  14. 14

    asexual makes more sense, he is always preoccupied with work and just views sex and the motions before it as animalistic. he kind of looks at everyone as if they are inside a globe and he can assess it from the outside without getting involved

  15. 15

    I really dont care about his sexual orientation. its irrelevant. The character has aspergers, i thinks thats what people are tapping into. perez just wants every character on tv to be gay. i think a sexual is more on the mark. who care if his preference, if he has any, is ambivalent. there are gay characters on there already, perez would know if hed watch. Hes to busy making one of those awesomely entertaining cartoons of his. AMAZE - BALLS - VOMIT.

  16. 16

    Perez, I love your site, but it bugs me that you constantly talk about Twilight (one of the biggest insults to literature), yet you've never seen an episode of "The Big Bang Theory", which is a well-written show. I would expect you to be more cultured than this since I'm one of your supporters.

    In other news Jim Parson does not have a mental disorder.

  18. 18

    Hey Perez you think it's weird because if he was a pedophile like you you'd think he was wonderful. The show is funny.

  19. 19


  20. 20

    That show is super funny. I would tell you to watch it so you would understand but I dont think that you would understand. they sometimes use Big words and you may get lost. And who cares if sheldon is gay or not, he is quirky and funny as hell! Why does everyone in this world have to be defined gay or straight?

  21. 21

    The Big Bang Theory is a GREAT show and it is your loss if you haven't watched it. I am really surprised that you call it "Weird". If you would watch the show, you would understand. I am all for Gay Marriage, and it saddens me that you have a negative opinion on his "sexuality".

  22. 22

    It's perfect for Sheldon.

  23. 23

    You just like to think everyone wants to sniff around your stank ass Mario. FFS give it the fuck up!

  24. 24

    Wow! Perez! If you haven't see this show you should! It is one of the best & funniest shows on TV. You are truly missing out and are being judgmental over something you have no true information on! Time to talk like an educated person - not one who is making assumptions!

  25. 25

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – I agree that Sheldon makes the show! I can't imagine him "dating" someone on there-that would be like every other show on tv. I'm getting really sick of the Penny/Leonard relationship though. The show was funnier when he just liked her.

  26. 26

    The award winning sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" is HILARIOUS! And there would be no show without Sheldon. What else matters?

  27. 27

    who is this We you speak about? YOU have never seen an episode. Well that is your loss. BBT is a hilarious show and with so much reality crap and drama shows. it is good to have a burst of laughter. BBT is way better than AI. I can't wait till that show tanks. i am just sick of it

  28. 28

    It's a great show dumb ass! If you haven't seen it what the eff would you know?!!

  29. 29

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt

    You are a cun*t.

  30. 30

    No, not weird for Sheldon. Great character, great show. Sheldon is perfect the way he is.

  31. 31

    Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite shows! That said, they even address Sheldon's "deal" in one episode when someone asks about it. His friends say he has no deal and assume he would reproduce through mitosis. He shows no sexual interest in members of his or the opposite sex. All he cares for is work, video games and comic books. He finds his friends pursuit of sexual relationships annoying and inconvenient. I see his interest in sex as quite obvious…..NONE! lol

  32. 32

    I am just happy enough with Sheldon being Sheldon. He makes the show.


  33. 33

    That show is AWESOME!!!!

  34. 34


  35. ANGRY says – reply to this



  36. 36

    I think he missed his calling!

  37. 37

    Sheldon is not human, great show!

  38. 38

    Well I find that it's mainly intellectual types who are attracted to the show…. So… you've never seen an episode, huh, P?

  39. 39

    One of the best sitcoms in a long time, Piggy and Barboar don't watch it because it's over their heads. The explanation is perfect, Sheldon's character is perfect and it's one of the top comedies on TV. They make more in one episode than you do in a year.

  40. 40

    What is it with the irrelevant obsession with who is/isn't gay?

  41. 41

    If they don't hook up Sheldon and Penny by the time this show gets canceled I'll be very pissed off. Oh and producers what the fuck do they ever know? They're idiots. "other"? What a fucking moron.

  42. 42

    It makes perfect sense - and it even makes more sense that you don't watch it, because it's one of the best shows on tv. The half hour comedy is a dying breed and I am so glad that this show is doing well. Stick to the moronic shows you like, Pervez, like 90210 (cancelled) and Gossip Girl (pos) because you are not capable of understanding much else.

  43. 43

    No, it's a good thing Perez doesn't watch this show. He'd be overcome with confusion because of the 'big words' they use on it.

    Seriously, this show is way better than Gossip Girl, or Vampire Diary's. The intellectual theme works so well in a world of overly sexual TV. Thank God for some brainy comedy! By the way, if Penny doesn't take Leonard I will snatch him up in a heartbeat. =]

  44. 44


  45. 45

    It doesn't even matter what he is because he is HILARIOUS!!!! Everyone should watch it, it's insanely funny! It's one of my favourite shows!

  46. 46

    I think it's funny. They did an episode about Sheldon's lack of sexual intrests. It was very funny.

  47. 47

    what is wrong with the character being asexual p?
    do you really find it that necessary to label everyone whether a real person or a tv character? is that all you define yourself with? how sad P

  48. barb says – reply to this


    i guess all geek must be gay, you are so f'd up perez. Watch the show before you comment on nothing.

  49. 49

    "The Big Bang Theory" is HILARIOUS!!! It's one of the few MUST WATCH shows for me!! I've even recruited a few friends, and I am NOT a geek by any means… It's GREAT writing and just plain hilarious. The fact that "Sheldon" is not interested in sex AT ALL, while his other 3 friends are, is another great part of the writing… I dare ya to watch it!!

  50. 50

    duh! the same people who questioned whether adam lambert was gay or not. open your f'ing eyes people, it's not rocket science!

  51. 51

    He should have sex with Leonard's mother since he likes her.

  52. 52

    perez u should watch this show. It's so funny. Sheldon will make u laugh. It's a good show. :D

  53. 53

    i love this show..BAZINGA..!
    nobody should judge without even watching it once..

  54. 54


    Perez, we know you're retarded, you wouldn't get this show. Don't worry.

    Just keep jerking off with pictures of Taylor Lautner , that's what fat lame people do, right?

    This place ain't what it used to be.

  55. 55

    This show is my favorite show on Television. It is hilarious and Jim Parson's is the reason I watch the show. Don't get me wrong I love the whole cast, but "Sheldon" is the funniest part of The big bang theory. I own season 1 and 2 and I watch them over and over, all the time. I have all my friends and family hooked on the show too. I feel sorry for Perez, he is truly missing and extordinary show!!! This is hands down the funniest show I have ever seen!!

  56. 56

    LUV HIM like that…luv the show

  57. 57

    you have never seen an episode?
    it is one of the best shows on TV!!!

    but i guess is would be too smart and witty for you perez!

  58. 58

    Why are people bothered to ponder the sexual orientation of a FICTIONAL CHARACTER??? Fuck people - get a life. BBT is, however, the best damn thing on TV.

  59. 59

    i love sheldon character, so i don`t care if his wet dreams involve a computer

  60. 60

    You people have restored my faith in humanity! I've never read any comments before on the site. I'm a casual user and just got curious because I love Sheldon. I had no idea so many people on Perez were anti Perez! I love it and totally agree with most of you. Sheldon isn't a sexual being but I am PRAYING for the show where some girl knocks his socks off. I think it would make a great episode. Yes, Perez just wants the world to be gay and make fun of people, even kids. Hateful rascal.

  61. 61

    I love this guy! He's truly hilarious and extremely talented to play such a role! The crap you post on your site and call hilarious does not even come close to Parson's caliber.

  62. 62

    ♡ Hands down the best sitcom on TV… the entire cast is so great together and sheldon definitely takes the cupcake… FOR SURE the best sitcom on tv… Jim Parsons should have won that Emmy… friggin Alec B…

  63. 63

    jim parsons is hysterical. if you cant see that you have really no idea what humor is. by the way, you think bbt isn't funny but you think your own "shiteous" cartoon is? yeah, you're one to judge..

  64. 64

    um.. maybe you should give the show a chance before dissing it? It's one of the funniest shows on TV! Sheldon is the funniest character.

  65. 65

    P.S., the show is super funny. Love it.

  66. 66

    Dont bag the show until u've watched it perez, its really funny you would love it if you gave it a chance

  67. 67

    WEIRD? You have absolutely no respect for asexual people. They account for 4 % of the population. They exist, they live among use and they deserve our consideration and love. Being homosexual, part of a minority, you must relate to their situation. RESPECT!!!!!

  68. 68

    I love Big Bang! Jim Parson is one of the greatest actors on TV today. I think that definitely explains a lot about Sheldon!

  69. 69

    totally. who cares, sex doesn't fit sheldon's character anyway. you should give it a watch, it's hilar!

  70. 70

    Srsl stop posting on TV shows, it's clear you know nothing about them.

  71. 71

    Seriously, you're judging this show and you've never seen an episode? If you'd just watch the show and know the characters, this explanation makes complete sense. The thought of Sheldon being in any kind of relationship, whether it be heterosexual or homosexual, is weird. Don't judge anything before you know what you're talking about.

  72. 72

    from what ive gathered from my gay friends. being gay is you identity. its everything.

  73. 73

    "…because it's WEIRD?!" Says the man who is friends with Lady GaGa who pretty is much the epitome Chuk's statement. Not that anyone gives a f**k.

  74. 74

    yes! and I love this show!

  75. 75

    i lovee this show i watch it every night

  76. 76

    Re: Elilan – That is so right. My fav show along with GNW(OZ)

  77. 77

    This show is just to incredibly funny and intelligent to be lost on your taste and absence of wit.

    Wooooossshhhhh……hear that?

    Like an SST flyin over your brainless head.

  78. 78

    i couldn't care less but, that's its a fuckening fun show and wouldn't want it to change.

  79. 79

    cause all you care about are annoying shows like glee and vampire diaries.
    go drool over a picture of Robert Pattinson please.

  80. 80

    funniest thing on tv right now. hands down. I used to LOVE HIMYM but I think this is better now.

  81. 81

    I have actually known people like Sheldon….namely the former librarian of my High School. RIP Miss Brandt

  82. 82

    Uhm I love TBBT! And Sheldon is one of the best characters ever, I dont know if you'd like it, but you are not gonna die just for see it once! :)

  83. 83

    Weird…? Perez brother, if you want folk to support your lifestyle you got to support them, gay straight or other. Erase the H8!

  84. 84

    where's the REAL celeb juice, fucknut? you are behind in everything, and don't even tell the REAL juicy stuff.
    gossip FAIL
    you suck

  85. 85

    The show is awesome, and Sheldon is awesome too, the way he is.

  86. 86

    Perez, this show is awesome. Don't judge until you have watched it, you are such a hater! This statement totally makes sense if you give BBT a chance.

  87. 87

    i dont think anyone actually cares. the show is hell funny,the acting is great and i dont think people even think about sheldons sexual orientation because his character doesnt do anything to make you think about it. dont have to hate on everything perez

  88. 88

    the show itself is kinda stupid, but his character cracks me up every time!!! he's so nerdy it's cool. (yes, that is possible!) and yeah his character gets turned on by neutrons and atoms, not men or women. who gives a !@#$%

  89. 89

    It's comical that this EVEN rated its own, specific thread. And sad that whomever writes this column has never seen the show (but not surprising - it's cerebral comedy, and one must have a level of intelligence to get the humor). Which explains why the author is drawn to vaporware television like "Jersey Shore" (which "I've" never seen!). Enough said.

  90. 90

    we love, love this show and sheldon in particular…LIVE OUR SHOW ALONE!

  91. 91

    This show is great! You are missing out big time!

  92. 92

    So what…if he was gay, THEN you'd watch!

    Not everybody has to be gay to be interesting or note worthy….sure hasn't helped u out any!

  93. 93

    sheldon is an emotional child and would not be comfortable with male or female sexual intimacy……………

  94. 94

    Dude, Perez, You are my favorite blogger and at first was skeptacle about The Big Bang Theory too, then I watched it and I have not missed an episode since! Jim parsons MAKES THE SHOW worth it!!! He is the funninest motha f'er I have ever saw on a TV Sitcom! Give it a chance! I promise youll like it!

  95. 95

    The Big Bang Theory is a great show. If you don't like it is because you don't get the jokes which are actually, pretty basic. Your ignorance is almost cute, except for the fact that you are an arrogant nobody.

  96. 96

    Perez, you should comment when you actually do watch the show!

  97. 97

    I still see an episode where he and Penny get drunk and do the nasty, LOL.

  98. 98

    Are u kidding Perez. Di you seriously just write that no one cares about the Big Bang Theory.
    What you don't like it because they have intellectual jokes? There are no naked girls, or sex scenes, or is it because its not obscene and actually has an extremely well written script.
    Never mind, your right, you are waaaayyyyy to stupid to ever watch a show like this one.
    Stick to Gossip Girl.

  99. 99

    I fuckin love him Team Sheldon whoop whoop!!!!

  100. 100

    O M F G The Big Bang Theory is one of the best comedies to come out in a long time. They have mentioned it a few times that Sheldon's character's happy ending will probably be more like getting a Nobel Prize in Physics. I think the other three are busy chasing women and the fact that Sheldon doesn't 'get' that whole side of life makes the show hilarious.
