    I would say no, there are too many non-comicbook readers with power that would scream and wail at such a change because they somehow believe it's an deliberate political attack on their beliefs.

    And the fact that they WILL be accused of tittilation, no matter how tastefully it is handled, is why it will never happen.

    Why must people be ready to see this? When the Xena-Gabrielle romance failed to keep Xena Warrior Princess on the air, some fans complained it didn't work, because the World wasn't ready. Perhaps, a better question would be, "Do we want to see it?"
    The difference is that Wonder Woman being gay, bi or pansexual is not only incredibly plausible, it almost makes more sense than her being heteronormative. I would be cool with it if it was well done, but I feel the odds of it being used for terrible fan service would be too high. Then again, Batwoman is great and has lesbian characters that don't serve as straight fantasy, so anything's possible.

    the only thing I think would be a fan service is the fact Diana is known for her bondage history and many male fan would love to see her tying her girlfriend.

    If we think about it, it makes perfect sense for Diana to be a lesbian.

    If a girl grows in a society where lesbianism is the norm, OF COURSE she will become a lesbian.

    Just like if any girl grows up in our society where heterosexuality is the norm. OF COURSE she will become heterosexual.

    Would never be put into print unless it actually served some purpose in the story. But I seriously doubt we will suddenly be faced with a Jean Grey in the Hellfireclub scene with WW.

    ultimately there is a great potential to it for a writer that can handle sexuality with more maturity than your average fratboy
    Superhero comicbooks aren't the best romance material out there.

    I don't know but somehow this just seems to suggest that being a strong powerful woman also means lesbian. I mean, do people wonder why isn't Etta Candy portrayed as a lesbian due to her traits?

    It´s the internet.

    Where the common belief is that all heterosexual women are secretly lesbians just one beer away from turning.

    Or a hiccup.

    it's serious? really? sexuality you born that way or not, some people take some time to discover their sexuality. Maybe she will enjoy lesbian sex or not.
    Would be interesting this side of Wonder Woman, from a society that have only homossexuality to a society where she can discover straight relatioships.

    Why is it always assumed that the only reason they don't do it is because they lack the guts to? I dunno, when its worded that way to me it comes across as saying that she should be a lesbian, which certainly is not the case. She can be whatever the writers want her to be.

    Thing is, Wonder Woman has 70 years worth of history of feeling strictly attracted to men.
    So, even if one morning she woke up and realised she had the hots for Etta Candy, guess what, that wouldn´t make her a lesbian, it would make her bisexual.

    It's not that, at least why I would think of it. She comes from an all female society that is ostensibly based on Greek culture on some level. The Greeks were generally very sexually open and stuff. I mean, it would make sense.
