If the Mara Jade stuff isn't canon then the closest Luke ever got to being with a woman was by kissing his sister.

So he very well could be gay over the span of the movie saga.

He could be gay, straight, pan, bi, or a monk who doesn't care about sex/sexuality at all. Since his story came and went, if there ever is a definitive answer it wouldn't affect the plot or story at all...so it wouldn't bother me.

That the dogma surrounding the Jedi that he accepted no longer aligned with the rest of the Galaxy. Their rules and mantra were outdated when he said. "I am a Jedi like my father before me".

He then went on to make the same mistakes they have been making for 1000's of years.

The Jedi are a legacy of failure, they only saw one path and one way to doing things. Which caused their downfall over and over.

This is what I liked about these movies, there was a lot of rejecting others paths. Not making their mistakes and finding your own way.

Ah you missed my joke it seems. You mentioned Monk, which isn't a sexual identity. It's actually the title given to a member of a religious order, you know, like what a Jedi is.

especially without Cyberpunk.

But he's right, Luke saw that the Jedi mindset was flawed, and they caused their own downfall.

But why he didn't actually teach the way it should be is a little weird to me.

He did, with Yoda then when he showed up on Crait. Then again as a Force Ghost.

His best option was to remove himself from the path. Which would allow Leia to guide her. Which was lost because we lost Carrie.

Right - and they have a great setup: Drink beer, bake bread & pray. Repeat often. Yes the lack of chicks is an issue but you also avoid the 99% of the time said chicks are a hassle. . Its that 1% of "bonk-bonk" that you miss.

Seriously, I know the jedi have been compared to Monks but the lack of actual religion or any kind of devotion to a deity makes them quite different in that aspect. I think. Sexual identity? Are there female monks???? I didnt think so but could be wrong.

Well Luke took into account the two generations of Skywalkers who became servants of evil and felt that he was an unsuitable figure to inspire a new order of Jedi.

Eventually he embraced the value in the legend that the galaxy still saw and placed their hopes in.

Yes and he was tempted by the Dark path twice. Leia was the obvious choice to lead. She was not bogged down by the dogma and was not tempted by the Dark Side.
