In a recent interview with Comicosity, Rucka reasoned that the Amazons’ home island of Themyscira gave them little option but same-sex relationships.
“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 … to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women,” Rucka said.
Rucka told Gizmodo he was surprised that any fans would be upset by his statements.
“There’s nobody in the world who can look at Wonder Woman and go, “I love this character, I believe in what this character stands for,” and then say, ‘…AND I CANNOT ACCEPT THE FACT that she would accept an individual’s consensual love any way imaginable.’ If you don’t accept that, then you don’t.”
