Batman and the Bi Wonder

I mean, the guy does love his tights!

To the surprise of no one, DC announced that the latest Robin, Tim Drake, is a proud member of the LGBTQ community.

In the latest installment of the comic, Robin’s sexuality appears to be awakened after rescuing a man named Bernard.

“I’m really glad you got home okay. I was relieved. And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, about that night. And I — I don’t know what it meant to me. Not yet. But I’d like to figure it out,” said Robin who was then asked out on a date by Bernard.

Apparently, Robin figured out something we knew all along. Which begs the question…. why this and why now? Well my friends it’s because gay sex sells! Pride Month became an opportunity for high-level consumerism. Every company from Ralph Lauren to Walmart cashed in on the selling power of the rainbow, proving that there really is a pot of gold at the end of one!

Also, DC rival Marvel announced their first openly gay character a few months back, which meant they better catch up or get canceled.

My dear readers, DC’s outing of Robin has nothing to do with representation or inclusion. It’s all about the Benjamins. Pow! #Truthbomber
