You do remember back in those days they was gearing to young boys. But no denial I just find it boring and seems people are doing this more like a fanfic. When changing a establish character sexuality for no reason.
Here's a link for further reading on the matter: http://www.xplainthexmen.com/2014/10...-sigrid-ellis/
But that is me and we all know a writer can just change her but to me I just see this if that happen as just stunt or more something towards a fanfic.
I dont doubt that Kitty being lesbian or bi may have been a thing at one time, but using this horrible grooming panel as evidence of possible LGBT subtext just sits....wrong to me.
(I know it likely wasn't your intention, but still, groomy child abuse stuff never sits right....)
In terms of Pryde coming out not, while the context may be there, I'd actually find it a bit OOC. She's so loud and brash and irritating about everything she does, that if she actually was lesbian or bi, she'd have made a big deal of it by now. The ship's sailed thanks to how she's been written since.

I will raise my throne above the Stars of God
Look at Psylocke. She hooked up with Cluster, but didn't make a big deal about it. You could argue "oh it's just Fantomex, it's because she liked him as a person despite being a girl" and it's like... still, you would think Psylocke would have some big crisis about her sexuality anyway? iirc she didn't really. The conclusion to draw about that situation, is some characters just don't make a big deal or announce their preferences or revelations about their sexuality. Kitty is a loud mouth, but she doesn't have to always express every single thought or revelation, especially on-panel.
I think if Kitty was revealed as bi (lesbian I think would be a lot harder), it could be something like Psylocke's situation, where she was aware of it but it wasn't a big deal or mentioned on-panel. Or she could identify as 'straight' but be a 1 or 2 on the Kinsey scale.

I can definitely see where you're coming from with Kitty, though, with the ship already sailed. However, the two women in whom she's most invested tend to have really poor availability in terms of relationships. Illyana's either dead, a child, in prison, or hiding in a bunker. Rachel's super-old in the future, stuck in an orphaned timeline, way out in space (which Kitty hates), etc.
Maybe now that the X-Men are in a way more stable place in the MU than they have been in a while, Kitty might have the time and opportunity to actually explore something with either of them.
Some quick questions about Adult Gay Iceman -
1) Has he had a discussion with Kitty about his coming out?
2) What issue does he come out in?
3) Which issue does Adult Bobby talk with his teenage self about his sexuality?
I want to read about the adult Iceman coming out, don't care for the teenage issues.
Karma told Kitty that she had feelings for her, Kitty wasn't sure how she felt. Kitty didn't tell her that she 100% is not into girls. There's no "proof" that she's straight. But I don't see why gay/bi characters are the only characters that need "proof" that their sexuality is legitimate or why all characters have to be assumed straight unless otherwise blatantly stated.
