New lipstick lesbians are doing it for themselves
Latest guardian of Gotham likes kissing girls when she's not fighting the bad guys, writes Carol Hunt
She's 5'10". She's a redhead. She's just been announced as the permanent replacement for the recently deceased Bruce Wayne, aka Batman of DC Comics. (Oh sorry, didn't you know? Brucie has been 'proclaimed' dead.)
Her name is Kathy Kane -- she wears knee-high red boots and a figure-hugging black and red costume -- and did I mention she was gay?
Described as a "lesbian socialite by night and a crime fighter by later in the night", the rarely featured Batwoman, who has a romantic history with ex-police detective Rene Montoya, has now replaced the caped crusader as protector of Gotham City.
