Well...DUH!

 
This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the iconic DC Comics character Wonder Woman, with Diana Prince finally making her way to the big screen this past spring in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as portrayed by Gal Gadot. While Diana of Themyscira will return next year in her own standalone Wonder Woman movie, the character has been rebooted for the comics with a new DC Universe Rebirth series that debuted last month. Greg Rucka, the writer for that series, confirms what many fans had suspected, that this Wonder Woman is in fact queer.
 
If you know anything about the creator of Wonder Woman you would know that he lived in a very unconventional marriage for the time. He had two women living with him who he engaged in threesomes with so I am sure that those two women touched each other to his great joy. So while creating Wonder Woman some of those images might have leaked into his creation. He tended to like bondage too which is why Wonder Woman is tied up in many of her earliest comics. He also invented the lie detector in real life and Wonder Woman carries a Lasso of Truth. So she is a lesbian who can make you tell the truth because William Moulton Marston was a little freaky.

Right?!? It's the biggest elephant in the room and no one talks about it even though she's probably the first instance of a character that should be gay. Almost evey week comicsalliance.com goes on and on about gay and bi characters and how important they are nowadays ( which it isn't, what does it matter what a persons -fictional or not- sexual preference is?) and here is low hanging fruit for writers and now, 75 years after her creation, one of her many writers is saying "maybe a woman raised on an island populated by only women might be gay...".

You said it pal: Duh!

So I absolutely don't have a shot with her? I'm devastated! I've been planning our first date for years!

No shot whatsoever like the rest of us mortal men.
