    Would there have been so much fan fare if they would have announced that Jon likes only girls?

No, because most of the characters in comics are cisgender heterosexual persons. Because most of the characters in any fiction are cis-hetero. The thing about diversity is precisely that, showing that not everyone has to be cis-hetero and it's not wrong.

And, on the other hand, if bisexuality was so accepted by society, there would not have been so much fan fare either. Even John Timms, the artist of Superman: Son of Kal-El says something similar in the IGN interview: "As we have seen Jon grow up in front of our eyes, it will be interesting to see him not only trying to find himself as a person but a global super hero in the complex atmosphere of modern life. On the other hand, I hope this kind of thing will not be seen as a big deal in the future."

"After all, though our yesterdays may be different, we all share the same tomorrow". Gene Luen Yang, Superman Smashes the Klan.
