I can’t remember where I heard about Iceman dating Pyro (Just in case what inspired this interaction) but I was instantly like “C’mon man… fire & ice? Really?” I’ve never had a problem with Bobby being gay. Even when he was written as straight he had kind of a gay vibe. Maybe that sounds weird, but when they went that direction I was like “Yeah, I can see that.” As far as Pyro goes I don’t know enough about the character. I have a vague memory of him being Australian, and a dick, and that’s about it. The idea of various characters being gay and hiding it in X-Men books makes sense on so many levels. You’re already a mutant and you have to kind of make these other mutants your surrogate family, but this blue dude is way into god and you’re worried he’ll flip out if you come out as gay on top of having ice powers, or whatever. That’s an interesting story in my opinion. Layers of bigotry to deal with even within your community? Could there be real life parallels? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…
