Putting the gay in Gotham

Okay, we all knew that Robin was gay and Batman was some sort of chicken hawk. Not to mention the sexual tension between the make-up wearing Joker and that dandy the Penguin.

Well, just to drive home the idea of alternative lifestyles at DC Comics, Batwoman is going to be reworked as a "lipstick lesbian," that mythical creature that so many straight men fantasize want to actually have sex with their sorry selves in pairs.

I WAS REALLY ENJOING READING YOUR BLOG. HAVING SPENT SOME OF MY MOST ENJOYABLE TIMES IN MY LIFE IN SOUTH KOREA. AND, THEN BEHOLD YOU HAD TO LET ME KNOW ABOUT YOUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. DID I REALLY NEED TO KNOW THAT? NO. I DON'T NEED TO KNOW YOUR RELIGION, SEXUAL BEND, WHETHER YOU SHAVE YOUR UNDERARMS, OR YOUR SHOE SIZE. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, UNTIL YOU REFERENCE IT.
YOU ARE CORRECT.

I thought it was funny post. What about superman? Is aquaman gay? How far can we take this outing of super-hero's? Just remember, don't mess with Capt America, he MUST be straight, eheh.

i 'let you know'? okay, so i wasn't keeping it any sort of secret about my sapphic tendencies, but it's not like i was advertising it in every other post.

you may have noticed my name up there in the marquee. that's right, this is my blog, so i can write about what i want. if you don't like it, go somewhere else.

my sexual orientation is not the only thing there is to who i am, but it is important sometimes, and i'll write about it if i see fit. i'll talk about lesbian/gay issues if i see fit. that's my business, 'cuz it's my blog, sista!

gay. the truth is, he left krypton because of family rejection of his lifestyle.

Is aquaman gay?
bi. and supposedly into water sports.

How far can we take this outing of super-hero's?

they're all gay. their superhero exploits are all a form of overcompensation.

Just remember, don't mess with Capt America, he MUST be straight, eheh.

captain america is as fruity as snapple iced tea gift basket.

very funny Nora, specially aquaman, although that does seriously change the view of my childhood icons. I seriously doubt wolverines gay though, he is way to hairy. Apon further reflection though, Capt America is most likely a log cabin Republican. Loves America, Loves logs. He might even be Andrew Sullivan.

I look up to you when it comes to writing on such a manner. I can't do that myself.
