Perfectly straight guys, but like in prison, sexual tension just builds and builds. In fact, pirate ships are cited as being a lot like prisons.
Hence why Captain Jack Sparrow might seem a little ambiguous regarding sexuality.
Of course we know that Pirate ships were never like Prisons (it goes against what Piracy is ABOUT). But do you think its common for Pirates to be bisexual? Or is it desperation? "Cabin boy! Drop your pants and bring me the rum!"
Homosexuality among pirates was punished by marooning.
Bad news, that.
Actually, that's another piece of slanderous propaganda disseminated by the Church to discredit Pastafarianism.
