But it didn't. At least not in Perez continuity it didn't. We don't know what enhancement they have now, but it didn't do it here because WW had a relationship with another amazon. And it wouldn't if we're talking about a greek pantheon. So I'm not sure where this is coming from.

- l.k.

Well, you've changed your argument a little. When I first replied to you, the title of your post was "C'mon guys, it makes the most sense." So, the implication is that you weren't talking about what a writer came up with, but what would make logical sense if an island of women were to exist. So, it doesn't matter what any of Wonder Woman's various writers have done, because that's just their opinion. And I stated that I tend to think that any inclusion of lesbianism by the writers is to excite young men(who get off on the idea of beautiful women having sex with each other), and to mollify social justice warriors, who demand more diveristy.

But, if it was your intention to point out what makes the most sense, then my counter point was that an island of asexual women would be the most logical representation. Since most of those women would be heterosexual, and it would be sadistic of the Gods to grant the women immortality, but remove them from those they love and desire. And that would fit nicely with Hippolyta's attitude that she desperately wanted a child, but not a husband. It would also explain why all the other Amazons don't seem perturbed by the lack of men. And finally, it would be in keeping with the notion that the Amazons have an ideology that's far removed from the rest of mankind in the pursuit of higher existence.

But, if any of the women are portrayed as lesbian, then it implies that most of the Amazons would be heterosexual. Yet, they demonstrate no interest in sex, or any kind of relationship, with men. And that makes no logical sense at all.
