I'm not a fan of this, but for a different reason.
I don't think it is some woke agenda. I think it is a gimmick to sell comics, by making the news.
Which is why I think Bi was chosen. If people don;t like it, they can just have him date exclusively women, and simply never mention it again.
Think its Dc comics hedging their bet on this, as they did not go "all the way", as that would mean Clark gets divorced and dates Jimmy, and by having jon dating girls before, can always have him swing that way if pressure hits them too much!
