The good news is that “Wonder Woman” is headed for a $100 million first weekend at the box-office. The movie must be worth seeing if so many people are seeing it, which must delight DC Comics seeing as how unsuccessful most of the previous film versions of their superhero stories have been. The bad news is that the political posturing surrounding the film and the character continue unabated.

Why is the costume so dull and why should people care?

Wonder Woman, albeit an ancient Greek demi-goddess, was always an American superhero. In the original Comic Books, she first left the island to do battle with the Nazis and then later moved to the United States as an immigrant.

Diana Prince’s American identity was reflected in the red, white and blue costume she always wore.

Some critics have noted that in the movie Wonder Woman’s costume’s colors are somewhat muted, suggesting that her American identity is being muted as well. These criticisms seem to have triggered Beth Elderkin at I09. Elderkin, who previously launched an attack against male fans objecting to the illegal female-only “Wonder Woman” movie screenings labeling them “dumb a** sexists” who didn’t know their place, hotly defended the Amazonian’s more “globalized look.”

Wonder Woman is too sexy, not lesbian enough, and too dumb to consent to sex with a man

Over at Slate, Christina Cauterucci experienced a number of triggering events while watching the movie.

First, the fact that Gal Gadot, who plays the title character, is an incredibly beautiful woman, is an aspect that she brings to the role. Moreover, the early 20th Century men who accompany her into battle know this and having not been neutered as much as many men in the 21st Century have been, openly express their appreciation.

Cauterucci finds this behavior kind of creepy.

Also, shouldn’t Diana Prince be more of an out and proud lesbian? She did grow up on an island exclusively inhabited by other women. The point may be a fair one, but was one that was rarely if ever raised in the comic books. One suspects a lot of women’s studies papers have been written about Wonder Woman’s alleged tendencies, though she seems to like the male gender in the comic books.

Finally, even more creepy, is the supposition that Diana, being thoroughly naïve about how men are, when you get right down to it, a bunch of lying, manipulative beasts, cannot possibly consent to sex with anyone of the male gender, not more than a 12-year-old child could. Even Steve Trevor, the World War I flying ace and spy, a sweet-natured guy who respects the Amazonian warrior princess, should be out of bounds. After all, who know what that sort of thing could lead to?
