    And I think the choices are a shame as there are better, and more logical candidates out there, than Tim Drake and Jon Kent. Having the more visible and prominent Damien Wayne come out as Bi or gay would have been better representation that Tim-third Robin on the right-Drake...

You're correct, but I believe what DC wanted, at least with Jon Kent, was the buzz of controversy, which is par for the course with Superman. The Death of Superman's legacy, at least with some of the higher-ips, seems to be that unless it's a fundamental change, people won't take an interest in Superman. So we kill him (but we an only do that once), have him rescind his American citizenship, reboot him every 5 years, dissolve his marriage, and now, his son is bi-sexual. DC sees the Batman property different, and I sincerely doubt they would want to disturb that money, I mean, those characters, with Tim Drake as the exception, since with Damian, as you noted, he's the odd man out.
