    Dear Comic Book Queers;

    Have you somehow missed the memo? We aren’t “saving” this “straight-washed” version of our beloved queer comic-book hero we are boycotting it!

    Perhaps you’ve overlooked all the articles in that little known magazine “The Advocate”:

    * NBC’s Constantine Won’t Be Bisexual: Why is NBC making DC Comics character John Constantine, better known as Hellblazer, straight?
    http://www.advocate.com/bisexuality/2014/07/14/nbcs-constantine-wont-be-bisexual
    * Op-ed: NBC’s Straight-Washing of John Constantine Is Bi Erasure: There aren’t enough bisexual men on TV, and the characters who are bisexual are being made straight.

    * NBC Producer Gets Defensive Over Constantine Bisexual Question: An executive producer insists they ‘never said Constantine wasn’t bisexual’ — but don’t assume that means he is either.

    and then there is the uproar over on Twitter: https://twitter.com/hashtag/biblazer

    We of the “B” in LGBT are tired of Queer-baiting Media that gives us a wink and a nod while actually laughing at us and erasing us. This is a genuinely canon queer character that the powers-that-be made into a good little straight boy.

    Sorry but we won’t settle any more. We just aren’t interested.
