SJW's Start A Petition To Make Wonder Woman Bisexual

In celebration of Bisexual Awareness Week, activists have launched a petition requesting Warner Brothers to officially make the Wonder Woman bisexual in the film’s sequel.

Last year, comic book writer Greg Rucka confirmed Princess Diana’s sexuality when he announced that Wonder Woman is obviously queer:

…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…

Wonder Woman Bisexual

Over the course of her 75-year comic book run and on-screen adaptations, however, Wonder Woman’s romantic story arc has been largely represented by her relationship with soldier Steve Trevor, Superman and Batman. Bi activist Gianna Collier-Pitts, who launched the petition on Change.org thinks it’s time for the film franchise to take a cue from the current comic book run:

WB also raked in a pretty penny with a gross of over $817 million worldwide (and counting), ranking the film as the third highest grossing film in the studio’s history. Needless to say, it was a success for everyone…except the bisexual community.

The likelihood of Wonder Woman being bisexual has been alluded to over the years, primarily in comics. Writer of Wonder Woman: Rebirth Greg Rucka even confirmed that “Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women”, so why is it so hard to translate this for the silver screen?

What are your thoughts? Does Wonder Woman need to be bisexual in the upcoming films? Or do you prefer the romantic relationship she currently has with Ben Affleck’s Batman?

  1. In fairness, the character was originally created as an exploration of bondage and power/submission roles. Why else did she lose her powers when *a man* ties her hands? Why is she so into tying other characters up? Wrist shackles? Playing for the other team is at worst a lateral move from “superpowered S&M”.

  2. I’m a lesbian and I love that they want to change the world of film, but this is rediculous, she is who she is and everyone knows she and Superman will eventually end uo together (it’s in the comics if I am not mistaken?). If she already is bi then cool, but stop trying to force a certain sexuality on a character that has already been established for years. Make a new superhero that’s gay or lesbian rather than trying to change the old ones.

    • I thought she was bisexual in the first film, she said something about genders in the film and males were primarily for procreation but she had not tried it yet. they don;t need to change anything

    • Namira
      Honestly, changing things, especially superheroes, books characters, comic characters etc to fit the LGBT quota is ridiculous and stupid. Everyone knows and is used to that specific character being who they are, and making them gay or lesbian when they were always perceived as straight is wrong, and so too with making a gay or lesbian character straight. It’s the same with this stupid whitewashing and blackstaining BS. You cannot change a character because the minority wants it to be so. I would say to that, make a new story with a new hero or villain rather. So I feel you.

    More than ever before, comic books (& now movies based upon those characters) tackle many issues that lead to human ignorance and different types of discrimination. They show the audience how to overcome these negative social behaviors and learn how to be a better human by embracing the unfamiliar.

    The “recognitions” of sexuality encourages “awareness” and encompasses all the things that make us who we are. Shaped by culture, history, values, education and experience, our sexuality influences our views of individuality, family, parenthood, and community.

    From a young age, children are exposed to sexual imagery and language in their environment, and their bodies are experiencing and developing sexual responsiveness. Their curiosity is inevitable, and the answers they get should clarify—not confuse—the issues for them.

    Adolescence is a particularly stressful and confusing time as both physical and cognitive aspects of sexual expression begin to align, and the opportunities for personal decision making expand. Sexuality begins to be a significant part of relationship experiences. We want those relationships to be healthy and safe, as they are the training ground for life as an adult.

    Yes, the notion of Wonder Woman to be Bi in the movies, may not have point “or useless” for some….but for many others it is a way of positive support .

  4. every time i read a comic i always think to myself “hhmm what this comic needs is more..gayness!” thank god for these “hero’s” for finally bringing this important issue up! after i sign this i’m going to sign the “superman needs to take it up the ass petition.” then we all should sigh the petition for “snake eyes and storm shadow to just do it already!!” ;)

  5. They can floss their teeth with concertina wire for all I care. Not literally, though. They’ll bleed out and die, or get gangrene.
    Anyway, it’s already implied that Diana is inclined to desire both genders in the movie. Their petition is pointless.

  6. She already is. Aside from the fact that she is depicted in several story arcs sharing intimate moments with other women on Themyscira, Greg Rucka has alluded to that in interviews. It’s part of canon. Let it go, bros.

    • Which is odd cuz gay means happy lol. I support gays and lg whatever….but there are bigger things to wrry about then lets make a charrachter gay or whatever…shit these charrachters themselves have bigger problems like saving the world…..we dont need to see on the big screen where these characjters put their junk!!!. It wont matter if the world accepts them cuz in the end truthfully many of them subconsciously dont accept themselves. So they need to seek it externally.

    • I agree. There’s definitely some sort of mental transference where they believe representation in Cinema will make them happy about who they are because they feel oppressed by the world. Truth is the world and societies in it don’t give a shit about anyone elses sexuality whether it’s gay or straight or bi. No one cares. It doesn’t interest us, doesn’t affect us. We don’t hate anyone for their sexuality, we just don’t care. Good luck to everyone in love but don’t make it my business- regardless of sexuality

  7. im torn on this post. I cant fucking stand whinny libtards like this trying to include everyone. she was never like that in the comics. if you want a bisexual superhero here is an idea create one. now on the other hand id love to see gal gadot makeout with a chick……. so like i said im torn lmffao!

  8. What?!?!?!?

    Okay no….I support the lgbtq community.
    I am not a racist, but stop changing characters this dramatically….I don’t want to see an Asian superman, I don’t want to see a white black panther. And I don’t want you fucking with the sexuality of characters that are already established, if you want to go ahead and petition the creation of any variant of new super hero to fight along side, or star in their own movie sure.

    I look forward to watching a biracial, transgender,pan sexual kryptonian survivor that escaped before krypton exploded.

    Or whatever you want to do….just stop fucking with established characters.
    (If something is in the comics that I’m unaware of that’s totally different, run with whatever has already been established)

  9. “I met a devil woman
    She took my heart away
    She said, I’ve had it comin’ to me
    But I wanted it that way
    I think that any love is good lovin’
    So I took what I could get, mmh
    Oooh, oooh she looked at me with big brown eyes
    And said,
    You ain’t seen nothin’ yet
    B-b-b-baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-nothin’ yet
    Here’s something that you never gonna forget
    B-b-b-baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-nothin’ yet…”

  10. WHY bring ‘sex issues’ to movies that grow from super-heroism, villains, spaceships & monsters ?… Natural outcome: people WILL pull away from all of this (at least I’ll be one of them)… Grow up, Hollywood ! Stop paying attention to ‘tendencies & (political) movements’ that DON’T care about the stories being told… Movies are all about the stories being told, u know ?… IF the story being told is ‘jam packed’ with every ‘tendency’ that lies outhere, there will not be a story to tell.. Movies prone to (political) tendencies tend to jeopardize the stories being told…

    • Agreed, I watch SciFi, Fantasy and Horror to escape the real world. I don’t care about social messages, commentaries on society etc etc. I want to be entertained. Sadly he is now deceased but Romero did not get that with his last few movies as he decided to be more upfront about the theme of his movies.

    • Wolfe Lind I think there’s space for everything, as long it is dead on the story being told… This (slight?) ‘tendency’ nowadays towards ‘political correctness’ of ‘jamming’ issues that have nothing to do with the stories being told, makes me… NOT go to the movies & NOT buying the dvds/blurays later on… and grab a book that actually tells a story WITHOUT ‘pressure’ to be ‘political correct’ & ‘representative’ of… so many issues outhere…

    • Sexuality is 100% an adult issue, so I don’t understand why you’d say grow up to that. I do agree that making every little thing in movies PC nowadays is pandering and takes away from the story but let’s be real: sex is part of life and sex and sexuality don’t need to be excluded from entertainment.

    • Holly McCrory I understand what you’re saying… What I mean to “Grow up” is to have clear premises on stories being told and to not allow ‘pressure’ for ‘political gender fairness’… To be fair is to be natural in sex and on everyone’s options… it shouldn’t be brought as an ‘effort to be representative & fair’… Fair is to never allow that stories & pop culture to be ‘hijacked’ by this ‘effort to be representative’ and coming up with ways to have pop culture ‘icons’ to be ‘representative’… This is not fair… Respect works both ways… Everything has it’s place & there’s a place for everything…

  11. I thought it was pretty much implied in the first film that Diana ‘swung both ways’? Maybe the SJW fruitcakes want an explicit ‘X’ rated movie as other than paranoia, they seem to have little imagination of their own

  12. Really though, just bi? You sure you wouldn’t like her to be a non-binary gender fluid POC pansexual that identifies as a deep-fried Easter Bunny? Cos I’m sure if you riot hard enough they’ll sort that out for you too.

  13. Not wonder woman is an Amazon feminist aka rogue feminist and is to masculine like to and agressive so unfit for even representing us females or feminists at all so if you sincerely must pic a female superhero to representing us females or feminists at all make it be supergirl to represent us females and feminists then because supergirl is way better of a fit to represent us females and feminists then wonder woman ever could be because wonder woman sucks compared next to supergirl as well and this pic proves my point that supergirl is way better fit to represent us females and feminists as well where as in wonder woman’s case she’s totally unfit to be representing us females and feminists at all

    • Umm Christy Bissell that’s comic book supergirl not tv show supergirl at all so don’t confuse kara zor el aka kara danvers aka supergirl with Kara Zor el aka linda danvers aka supergirl because the t.v. show version of supergirl is somewhat unrelated to the comic book supergirl anyways

    • Samantha Madden um, this issue here is about bisexuality, not about females (who can be represented by males too, like myself) or feminists (who can also be male, like myself), which are two similar but different issues altogether. valid, but different. this here is about annoying people who need everything spelled out for them. Diana is already bisexual, but her sexuality (the same as the sexuality of the other Superheros) is totally irrelevant for the plot/story DC is telling in it’s cinematic universe. therefore explicitly mentioning it at some point, even if it’s just in a half-sentence, doesn’t deepen her character in any way. … a gigantic and ever expanding comic universe or a multi-series tv universe is a much better place for mentioning and adressing such issues. (PS: I’m anxiously awaiting the introduction of Earth-1-Kara in the CW-niverse, they promised so long ago.)

    • Hello earth calling Frank Lindner come back down to earth and So what and we lesbians are in a round about way in the same category as bisexual women to btw and wonder woman sucks because she’s a misrepresentation of us feminists as well because she’s way to aggressively man like in her looks heck she even looks like the butch lesbians to as well but wonder woman is an Amazon type of feminist aka rogue feminist which we more modern day feminists Dispise wonder woman because she represents the old school more aggressive feminists that we more modern day feminists don’t want her representing us at all maybe we more modern day feminists should boycott the new wonder woman movie to as well

  14. Fact

    Themyscira Population

    # of women: a lot
    # of men: 0

    Let’s look at the statistics here for a moment since we are all nerds.
    Chances of this actually being a thing………. I leave that to the intellect of my fellow nerds

  15. No she has never been interested in women that way if there were even hints she was they would of popped up long before now I mean Wonder Woman had been around quite awhile and she has never been Bi or gay. So SJWs can fuck off on that it’s bad enough they got Marvel to do their bidding. Don’t give in DC keep your character the way you created them

  16. SJWs think they are saving the world by making a big fucking deal out of shit that doesnt matter. As if changing the sexuality of a fictional character is somehow going to change the world, let alone be an inspiration for all. And i say this because Wonder Woman is a symbol on her own right. she doesnt need to be bisexual to inspire others.

  17. If these folks want to mess around with the sexual preferences of characters why not just create new characters that are gay or bisexual so forth and so on down the list. Trying to force it on people by tinkering with what is already out there is not going to go over well with most people.

  18. I’m getting sick of people calling them “SJWs”. Malcolm X was a SJW, these kind of people are fringe lunatics

    If SJW means standing up for minority rights, count me a proud SJW, triggered snowflake. Feminazis and the like are NOT SJWs by definition of the term.

    • actually you and Malcolm X (and me too) are actually JWs (Justice Warriors) or as Science calls them “decent human beings”. the term “SJW” already was from the time it was coined on an euphemism.

  19. Eh. Wonder Woman was created by a man whose wife was bisexual, they shared a girlfriend, and were into all sorts of kinky BDSM roleplay stuff… in the 40s. Bisexuality is probably one of the least exciting things they could write into WW. I even seem to recall a recent comic where it was revealed that WW was biologically male, and was angsting to her mom that man’s world says that penis-havers can only be men, and she was willing to castrate herself to prove it.

  20. They’ll never show the sex scene so ho cares. If the movie is good she can have a orgy with 3 white/black men, 10 black/white women, 10 dogs, a whale, a elephant, 20 snails and a pirate crew…ho the fuck cares.

  21. Why? Why and how would that make any of her stories better. SJWs already ruined Marvel Comics, stay away from our stuff! You morons only care about comics to ruin them. America Chavez is a great example of that.

    • what about bisexual people who only visible show affection to the opposite sex, but never talk or mention or show their sexual affection to the same sex? same as hetero- and homosexual people don’t mention or show their hetero- or homosexuality at every possible opportunity. … I just try to imagine how that topic even can come up in a movie so that it makes sense and fits into the plot and is not just some “token dialogue” … aside from any small-talk scene.

  22. I really don’t care, if it’s a good story then it’s a good story. But for the love of all that is good and fun Let it Be Because of The Story…
    I capitalized excessively there for emphasis, and I wrote this sentence to make an empty point. Sort of like showcasing a character’s sexuality to affirm that you support a particular lifestyle: whilst self indulgent it does nothing to further the actual point.

  23. Seriously? I loved the fact that she loved only Steve even after decades. True and tragic love. I wouldn’t have cared if Steve was Stephanie or whatever, it is the true love aspect (romance, I know and argue as much as you like that it doesn’t exist but…neither does Wonder Woman)

  24. Ok,this is just silly. Wonder Woman is an amazon. Amazons were known to only be with men to breed and then only keep the female children. So of course they more than likely were sexual with each other. It’s friggin obvious she’s bi.

  25. Why does it always have to be about sex with some people? Does she have to be blatantly into women in order for her to be considered bisexual? Whatever happened to subtlety, your own interpretation, and leaving it to the audience’s imagination?

  26. there are many things that comics do that would polarize a movie going audience: the greeks were known for their bisexuality too and that would give 300 the possibility for an orgy scene of epic proportions. Deadpool is pansexual and if portrayed on the screen as having a “bone” for death :awkward. Then there is the scenes with samwise and frodo in return of the king where again if you want to find it, it’s definitely there. There are many sexual themes in comics that get left in the books because the superhero genre is family friendly making monies…..if accurate rating would put these films into R territory and that limits audience

  27. I just watched Wonder Woman and I had no inkling to want to switch to the other side. No offense. I just felt empowered and wondering why I can’t have some arm bands like hers!! ‍♀️

  28. To make her? She already is. Hence the “we know the pleasures if the flesh” on the boat with trevor.. Come on.. thousands of years on a island, with only women raised with grec antiquity culture..

    • All of them are this way lol. People don’t agree with this garbage man, SJWs are actually a small minority. But alot of people in power get the misconception they’re a large part of every audience. But that’s not the case

  29. I’m gay, and I disagree with this idea, if it’s true. I have no problem with LBQT characters, but I do have a problem with changing who they already are just to fit some kind of agenda. If they want a gay superhero, either create a new one, or make a movie about an already gay character, like Northstar.

  30. Why is the SJW trying turn this awesome icon for women into a personal agenda! I always hear women experimenting with other girls… if you do now, is the new thing going to be that you have to be classified in a particular category! Leave the comic world alone! This is where most people go to get away from groups like these! It’s Sacrilegious to the comic world!

  31. I mean… It makes sense. She was already around all women before finding a male. Honestly all you guy screaming fuck sjws are just as fucking dumb. Think before you speak dumbasses. Or hell, pay attention to what you saw. Also, no one is gonna create a new character just to make them bi.

  32. Who cares if WW is or is not bisexual? And who cares if people want her to be or not be bisexual?

    Stop manufacturing outrage where none need exist if you took a second to remember that nothing revolves around YOU.

  33. Marie

    Weird.. Just because she was on an Island of all women wouldn’t make her automatically bi…That’s like saying sexual preference doesn’t matter and you just do whoever is convenient and it doesn’t matter who it is. People are indeed attracted to a certain gender…just ask gay people. Same for straights.
    I have no problem with gay, bi or any other sexual preference but since I’m a straight female my preference is in seeing heterosexual relationships.
    I’d prefer Wonder Woman to be most attracted to men..That appeals most to me.
    Not sure why that is so hard to accept ..It’s still a majority and there’s nothing wrong with it.
