Batwoman's a lesbian

Not that I truly care. For one thing, she's a lipstick lesbian, like those shiny plastic gals over at "The L Word" whose soap opera I couldn't follow even if I wanted to since we can't afford Showtime. Not, in other words, like any real live lesbian worker I've ever known in the real live world.

Nor, despite occasional feeble tries, have I been able to make myself interested in comic books. Loved them--especially Superman and Supergirl, Green Lantern, Aquaman and various other Justice League of America stalwarts--when I was a kid. Now, um, not so much.

Still, this is kind of a hoot. The gay Gotham gal was unveiled at Comic Con in New York this week.
