Diana has never been shown to be attracted to women. In fact, when Steve arrives, it's surprising that no other woman is attracted to him at all, besides Diana. I always thought that the Amazons had evolved past that physical, sexual need, or else Paradise Island would be rife with many of the same ailments as Man's World.

There's a fair amount of hypocrisy in how Themyscira is approached, as I'm certain if the situation was reversed, and a woman showed up on an island of enlightened men, readers would guffaw if not one of them was attracted to her. It would make sense that a man is attracted to a woman, but the converse? Many don't seem to believe that women are attracted to men, and deeply at that.

I don't know about guffaw, but it was shown that Achilles Warkiller and his men weren't necessarily, as we would put it today, straight. Achilles married the Amazon queen for political reasons, but eventually went with the reincarnation of his companion, Patroclus.
