I was looking at at the trivia section and I'm a little puzzled by this:
- Unlike the Silver Age Kathy Kane, who was written as being romantically attracted to Batman, the new version of Kane is written as a "lipstick lesbian." Her homosexuality was announced at the same time as the character was revealed in the spring of 2006. Stories appeared on television news outlets such as CNN, general news magazines such as "USA Today", and gay culture magazines such as Out. While many LGBT characters in comics are public with their sexual orientation, Kane is an example of a closet homosexual; one who makes a conscious effort to conceal her sexuality by any means. Renée Montoya, Kane's former lover, hinted during 52 that Kate's inhibitions were the reason behind their break-up. Kate's homosexuality is ironic because the original Batwoman was created purely as a love interest to help end rumors that Batman himself was homosexual, perpetuated by Fredric Wertham's book Seduction of the Innocent.
There are a few things there that don't make sense. While I will admit I haven't had the chance to read 52, I'm confused by the labeling of Kate as a 'closet' and 'lipstick' lesbian. In fact, Batwoman: Elegy makes it pretty clear that Kate and Renee broke up because Kate was frustrated with Renee being closeted (among other things) and she even publicly dances with Maggie Sawyer; she also goes on a date with a woman and in Batwoman #1, she publicly flirts with Maggie and then arranges a date. That all makes it pretty clear that she is no longer in the closet. The comment about being a lipstick lesbian does not entirely fit either. While she is literally a lesbian who wears lipstick, she does not dress in ways that are extremely feminine and she certainly isn't sexualized in the way that lipstick lesbians often are in the media. If anything, she's more butch than ultra-femme. May I suggest editing this paragraph for accuracy, or even just deleting it? --DreamPunk 19:56, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
