Quote:Well...It's already kind of a retcon, if the intention of Jon's creator, and whichever writer and editor were behind the Saturn Girl affair was to present a straight character. A retcon that retcons nothing, you might say.
It's not revising anything about Jon as a character, just adding a new layer to him. An unnecessary one, but a new one.
Quote:It'll be interesting to see if they ever allow him a physical relationship with a female ever again. If they DO, then fair enough, he's bisexual. But if they don't, then they can call him whatever they want until the cows come home but the reality is he's for all intents and purposes a gay man.
Do Bi's in real life suddenly become Gay if they marry a man? No one, that I know of, can change how their brain works. Either they are gay, bi, lesbian or straight. At the end of the day, that Bi is still Bi regardless if he chooses to predominantly be with a man. He can still watch a TV program and whistle every time a woman walks by with a bikini on. That isn't going to suddenly change. Same with Jon. He's bi and unless his relationship with Saturn Girl gets erased, he's going to remain that way.
Why the big need to have Jon now be shown as gay or Bi, is straight now a bad thing?
