He seems like more than just an auto-enthusiast in certain scenes, especially in Thirst. Starscream isn't a car...at least not in the Prime continuity
No moreso than G1 Tracks, who was equally given a vain personality and an exaggerated campy voice. Yet, people adamantly defend Tracks as not being such. :|



Except that those things are not are not even remotely indicative of sexuality.

I think, by way of his character and as BeastProwl said his innuendo and jokes, Knockout is much closer to being a homosexual character than Tracks, who thinks he looks good as a car.
If it's a voice thing, then why not G1 Hook? Same-ish voice as Tracks.
Plus, for someone who is as versed in the lore as you are, surely you can't have missed or forgotten the minor uproar that happened when people started to see that relationship between Knockout and Starscream develop into something that was more than met the eye.

Their bodies are actually of female animals: Male wasp drone have no stinger, male ant drones have wings, and Tigatron got his beast form from Snowstalker, a female tiger.

Let that sink in for a while.



Not for their entire lives.

When a male TF loves a female TF he injects her with a small part of his spark. If it combines with a small part of her spark she ejects the news spark which grows in an egg.

There...that's the cyber birds and cyber bees.

Well, the combining of sparks is a theory I've considered possible for a while and the egg-formation is also acceptable.

Joking aside, that's one of the more rational theorizations. As long as we don't go into details...
