"Private Lee Lemon may well be the finest recruit I've seen in all my years of service. That young man fills me with hope and some other emotions that are weird and deeply confusing to me."
2 explanations: a) Zapp subconsciously picks up on Lee Lemon's ambiguous sexuality and reacts accordingly, confusing his conscious self, or b) Zapp is the offspring of Todd Quinlan and "appreciates hot regardless of gender".
Personally I'm going with a), although b) would be hilarious.
and how he is clearly dating a cross-dresser (in put your head on my shoulders)Zapp:
Baby, wait! You didn't show me your surprise.
Zapp had no clue whatsoever that the guy was a cross dresser/bisexual/"some other designation that are weird an deeply confusing", for all he care he was on a date with good prospects of advancing to second base and beyond.
Despite his personal and public persona as God's gift to women and the biggest spacefaring womanizer since James Tiberius Kirk, Zapp is a perpetual loser in the erotic department. Subconsciously Zapp's ego probably force him to go on dates with sexually ambiguous people just to maintain his own self delusion. Consciously he considers it a perk that random strangers throws themselves at his feet, promising surprises later on.
