Is Tintin gay?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Placebo, Oct 13, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Was perusing my old comic collection and I could not not escape the fact that Tintin has rosy coloured cheeks. What gives?

    Is Tintin a receiver or a transmitter?
  2. Belgian, say no more
  3. I recon he likes beans and sausages
  4. I think the girly cow lick hair do gives it away!

    Of course he is! So says Matthew Parris, ex-tory MP, Times columnist, and all round clever bugger:

    Of course Tintin's gay. Ask Snowy - Times Online

    "Billions of blue blistering barnacles, isn't it staring us in the face? Sometimes a thing's so obvious it's hard to see where the debate could start. What debate can there be when the evidence is so overwhelmingly one-way? A callow, androgynous blonde-quiffed youth in funny trousers and a scarf moving into the country mansion of his best friend, a middle-aged sailor? A sweet-faced lad devoted to a fluffy white toy terrier, whose other closest pals are an inseparable couple of detectives in bowler hats, and whose only serious female friend is an opera diva...
    . . . And you're telling me Tintin isn't gay?"

    And, frankly, he should know!
  6. Wasn't that Rin Tin Tin? Could've been Lassie I suppose.
  7. We are all too young to remember that :)

    Both of whom put out and gobbled for Bonio treats!
  9. Tintin's sexual bearing is neither here nor there. He is a Gwar. One can only pray that he was sterilised at birth.
  10. I didn't know whet was an author?
  11. I reckon he pulls a train with the Thompson twins, while Snowy watches through a peephole in the wardrobe door.
  12. Have my doubts about that Asterix /Obelix friendship too.
  13. Its a Belgian cartoon about a young boy with a bearded old man.

    That's porn in Belgium
