The NBC sitcom Love, Sidney made waves when it was first announced, as it would be the first major television show to feature an openly gay main character. However, the show later faced criticism from the gay community because aside from some very subtle Sub Text, Sidney's sexuality was never mentioned outside of the pilot.

Is the NBC sitcom Love, Sidney an adaptation? If so, this could be clearer. If not, this isn't Adaptational Sexuality, it's Hide Your Gays.

However, some fan fic authors are vexed by the premise that all characters are straight unless proven otherwise in canon, and they genuinely think that slashing them is consistent with the original works.

NOT all characters are straight unless proven otherwise in canon. Don't tell me, "Most people are straight, so most characters are straight as well." Interpretation is up to the viewer, and for that matter, fictional characters often have ambiguous sexualities.

I'm really surprised the dub version Haruka and Michiru weren't mentioned under the Sailor Moon part.

I feel like it's because Dub vs. sub isn't considered an Adaptation. Just guessing.
