Fans petition Warner Bros. to make Wonder Woman bisexual

But fans now think it's about time we all received a deeper understanding of Wonder Woman's sexuality and have pointed out that the upcoming sequel is the ideal opportunity to show some representation when it comes to bisexuality. Gianna Collier-Pitts, the petition's author and a GLAAD campus ambassador, notes that Wonder Woman was "a success for everyone ... except the bisexual community".

This comes as the writer of Wonder Woman: Rebirth, Greg Rucka, confirmed that "Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women", which means it shouldn't be too much of a stretch for the silver screen to portray a canonical aspect of her character.

"We are oversexualized and underrepresented". We are the least likely to come out and the most likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, on top of experiencing higher rates of sexual/intimate partner violence. Aside from her, the brand also has LGBT characters like Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Batwoman and The Midnighter.

"When you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what [Rucka] said makes sense".

"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". But it's not about that. While comic book fans are pretty open to the idea - she did grow up on an island filled with women after all - it might be a harder pill to swallow for modern audiences. She can be bisexual.

Over on, there's a petition for the studio to rectify that in future films, which has garnered almost 3,000 signatures since being posted.
