okay but Luke being gay would actually explain his interest in Leia A WHOLE LOT AND MAKES IT WAY LESS INCESTY

think about it

this boy is hella gay, like so so gay, he’s never been attracted to a girl in his life but maybe feels like he should, and then he meets Leia

he feels this connection, this pull to her, and because he’s never experienced attraction to a woman he thinks that this is what being attracted to girls feels like, when actually that’s not it at all, it’s just that his subconscious can sense that it’s his sister and that therefore she’s super important to him

gay Luke = sibling connection mistaken for attraction = LESS GROSS INCEST
