COMICS: DC Rebirth WONDER WOMAN Is Queer According To Greg Rucka

Living for centuries on an island containing only women, it seems obvious that Diana would have had a few same-sex relationships before deciding to leave for the world of man according to Greg Rucka.

In the current DC Rebirth continuity, series writer Greg Rucka has confirmed that the version of the Amazon princess he's currently writing is definitely queer.  It's a subject that has been broached before, most recently in the ongoing Wonder Woman: Earth One series from Grant Morrison.  But unless we're mistaken, this might be the most blatant admission from DC Comics to date regarding Diana of Themyscira's sexual proclivity.  

When Rucka was asked about whether she was queer, he responded, "Yes.  I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say,Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!”

Rucka goes on to explain, "And when you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is,How can they not all be in same sex relationships?Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.  It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.  But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say,You’re gay.They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.  Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? As Nicola and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes."

However, just because Rucka and current Wonder Woman artists Nicola Scott and Liam Sharp feel that way, it doesn't mean the series will ever acknowledge their sentiments.  That's something that would need to be cleared by several editors and DC Entertainment executives before making its way to print and would be revealed in a manner of a much larger scale than an innocuous comic book blog. 

Still, it's satisfying to see Rucka and his team acknowledge what many comic book readers have assumed for decades.
