Taking over the World!

I was looking for some info about Lindsey and was reading through his Wikipedia page and found this funny, just wondering what you all though of it. I had never thought of it before.
SourceNumerous hints and references have been made alluding to Lindsey's sexuality and feelings toward Angel throughout the series; some more obvious than others. In season 2, the 400 year old vampire, Darla asks him if he has a boyfriend. Then, later in the season, when she is kissing him, she remarks that "its not me [Darla] you want to screw, it's him [Angel]." The double entendre is quite obvious in tying sexuality into Lindsey's motivations to attack Angel. During the 100th episode, "You're Welcome," Lindsey comments that "it's not the size that counts big guy, it's how you use it," as he transforms his small dagger into a longer and more powerful weapon. Once again sexuality is tied into a double entendre while regarding Angel. Further hints are given in the last episode where Angel accepts Lindsey's offer to fight in the apocalypse and says "I want you, Lindsey," despite voiced discomfort from both parties, the double entendre was, for the third time tied to sexuality between the two.
Other fans argue that Lindsey's relationship with Eve, which seems to be based on love and affection, confirms his heterosexuality. However, Eve did later on say to Lindsey that "he's [Angel] still the center of your [Lindsey's] world." Joss Whedon himself has never confirmed Lindsey's sexuality one way or the other. Others believe he is bisexual, on the verge of being both. It can only be speculated by fans and critics.
