As we launch into pride month, a debate started as to whether or no Wonder Woman can be/should be considered a queer superhero.

Carter, who played the role of Wonder Woman in the 70s TV show, tweeted on Wednesday, “I didn’t write Wonder Woman, but if you want to argue that she is somehow not a queer or trans icon, then you’re not paying attention.”

She added, “Every time someone comes up to me and says that WW helped them while they were closeted, it reminds me how special the role is.”

Her tweet received more than 200,000 likes.

And let’s not forget, that the Wonder Woman character was created by William Moulton Marston, a polyamorous man in a thrupple, as memorialized in the 2017 movie Professor Marsten and the Wonder Women, which is definitely pretty queer, if you ask me!
