If a female were to play the role of `James Bond`, do you think the character will be a lesbian?

Isn't it 'talk like a pirate day'?

No wonder my question displeased Morbo (even though he approved it)...

JAMES BOND DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY

A female what?

Well, if you want to kill the franchise, that's the easiest way to do it.

All depends on the amount of baby oil involved. Decent amount of "action" in it, could well boost the ratings to an all-time high...

I don't give a sh*t about Bond but making him a her would be a mistake. The character is a martini-soaked wretch and womaniser, a blunt instrument, your grandad's outmoded opinions given human form. Some things only work one way. Bond must be a man.

Maybe a film about Bond's parents could be interesting. I don't know if much has been written on his mother but I reckon the woman who tamed Bond Sr might be worth a look. If you wanted a female Bond.

Put her in a wheelchair, give her a wife and some mental health issues and tick all the diversity boxes at the same time.

Like the new Ghostbusters movie. The one we've already got is gold, no need to 'revamp' it.

Gender-swapping generally doesn't bother me . . .with one exception.

Joan f*cking Watson.

Is it really too taxing to create your own character?

Jane Bond would be Bi.

It would be better for the ratings.

The honeytrap would have to be an essential plot device too.

Come to think of it Jane Bond was aroumd long before the male version.... as a cartoon strip in the Daily Mirror during WWII

I'm not really sure what purpose it would serve. If the intent were to evolve the franchise by having a female main character, I wouldn't expect that making her a lesbian (or bisexual) is something that would be done with much depth or respect for that kind of representation. If it's just done for titillation, then they'd probably piss off a lot of the people they were trying to appeal to.

On the issue of gender swapping generally, I think it needs to be done thoughtfully. Up to now Bond has arguably been, for better or worse (and n.b. that aspect of him has been criticised by characters in the films) a fairly sexist, misogynistic guy. I'm not sure the franchise's success is necessarily based on that, but it's a part of it. Slipping a woman in to that role to ride off of that history seems a little odd to me - I'd rather see strong, original female characters.
