Is Tobias Gay?

Arrested Development writers visited this again and again throughout the series, with some jokes working better than others. The best part of this running gag, however, is Tobias' obliviousness to his double entendres. After he gets hair plugs in order to get better acting parts: "I can just taste those meaty leading man parts in my mouth." When he's sassed by a wig store employee for not purchasing anything: "I suppose I'm buy-curious." He's also in a leather-clad barbershop quartet and named his book "The Man Inside Me" (it's a big hit in the gay community). You'd be confused, too.
