Recently we’ve had a little bit of a mess in our FB page regarding Loki’s sexuality. Some say that Loki is straight. Others state that Loki is bisexual. Others that he is pansexual, and many that he is polyamorous. Before starting to promote a label (or a set of them) more than another, let’s take a look to the definitions:

  • Bisexual: according to Wikipedia, “bisexuality is a romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior toward both males and females.” It means that the bisexual person will feel romantic, sexual or romantic and sexual attraction to both genders.
  • Pansexual: according to the Wiki, “pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is sexual attraction, sexual desire, romantic love, or emotional attraction toward people of any sex or gender identity.” The difference with bisexual would reside in the fact that pansexuals really do not care about your gender, they will get attracted also to transgenders, for example.
  • Polyamorous: again, according to the Wiki, “polyamory (…) is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It is distinct from swinging (which emphasizes sex with others as merely recreational) and may or may not include polysexuality (attraction towards multiple genders and/or sexes).”

Let’s theorize.

We’ll start with the first Thor movie where we can see Loki as a baby, kid, and youngster. Let’s take a look to the baby Loki.

Loki was a tiny baby, for being a giant, and was left to freeze till death. However, Odin found him. The baby reacted to Odin, appealing, not to be thrown away. This “appeal” is inherent to all babies. They cry out in distress (and their cries make you mad, really, so mad that you have to do something to please them). Odin, brought the baby back to Asgard from Jotunheim, and decided to adopt it. So, him and his wife, Frigga, would be Loki’s new parents.
