    Sure, but there's also the context that all of these women have been raped or abused by men. You also have the stuff from Perez where all of them were reincarnations of women who were killed by men. So one would think there would be issues with how these women saw men and relationships. Especially with Hercules' men raping and abusing them too. They have bracelets to remind them of the chains that Hercules put them in. They have a lasso of truth that is remiscent of the chains they were put in.

The situations notwithstanding, women, and men for that matter, are still shown to be attracted to the opposite sex. What's more, the implication would be that trauma induces sexuality, as opposed to it being a naturally, organic happening. Hypolyta was humiliated by Heracles, yet later in the series, forgave him and had a relationship with him.

    I can see a lot of the Amazons having issues with men, with Diana being the exception because she had never been enslaved.

That's the modern take, women who live together must have issues with men, even though they have had no dealings with men for thousands of years. That's hardly enlightened. No, it's misandry, or at least, an unfair dislike of all men based on the actions of a few.
