The community of presumably fully grown adults who still feel the urge to read comic books and write fan fiction about childhood superheroes claim that Diana Prince, the secret identity of the amazonian Wonder Woman, has secretly exhibited bisexual tendencies over the course of the series and should be recognized as such.
For those wondering, Wonder Woman first appeared in comic books almost 80 years ago in 1941.
The alt-left always has its priorities in order.
According to Dennis Michael Lynch:
“A Change.org petition titled, ‘Make Wonder Woman Bisexual,’ was launched Monday by LGBTQ activist Gianna Collier-Pitts, who said the new hit film ‘was a success for everyone… except the bisexual community.’
Collier-Pitts goes into the raw details of the comic book series to formulate her argument that the hero is bisexual, beginning with the location from which Wonder Woman is supposed to hail.
‘The likelihood of Wonder Woman being bisexual has been alluded to over the years, primarily in comics,’ the petition’s author wrote on the campaign page. ‘Wonder Woman’s Diana Prince hails from Themyscira, land of the Amazons and inhabited exclusively by women. This alone should serve as reason enough to confirm her sexuality, since any close relationship she could have had prior to her romantic storyline with Steve Trevor would have had to have been with another woman.'”
Disregarding for a moment the left’s obsession with LGBT and minority characters in film and television, one wonders about their recent push to recast classic characters in new, social-justice-pandering molds.
Whether they’re fighting to cast a black James Bond or bitching about the lack of black female soldiers in the World War 2 historical drama Dunkirk, SJWs seem as determined to destroy fictional canon as they are real-world history.
Instead of creating a new bisexual superhero, which would be perfectly acceptable if there was a market for such a character, the left set its sights on Wonder Woman.
Putting aside the fact that LGBT people are in fact vastly over-represented in visual media, it’s humorous to hear the gay lobby clamour for a switch-hitting female badass when they’ve historically been outraged at the portrayal of bisexual women in fiction, most notably in the case of Sharon Stone’s character in Basic Instinct.
In any case, the alt-left has clearly lost the plot when it comes to accurately representing fictional canon and real-world demographics, and they will likely continue driving people from film and TV to video games as a result.
