I’m not sure why Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman actress from 1975 to 1979) is saying this. I’m absolutely sure that the original creators of Wonder Woman in 1941 had not thought of supporting the queer agenda. I’m thinking at this period of time, their thought was to empower women in a time of war and uncertainty in the American way of life. The Germans could have won, after all.
“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,” tweeted Carter, “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.”
OK, I guess you can interpret this anyway you want. And of course Lynda really wants to be politically correct. I’m doubting that she was thinking this when she was filming the series in 1975.
And of course one of the writers has said this as well, even though he was not alive when the original Wonder Woman was written, and was barely alive during the Lynda Carter series.
You can read the articles if you want. I’m calling bullshit on all of this.
