Constantine Straight-Washed

EW broke the unsurprising news from the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour that the Constantine we will see this Fall will not be bisexual.

The Backlot has the full transcript of the question and answer, but it boils down to :
So yeah, within this tome of three decades, there might have been one or two issues or one where he’s seen getting out of the bed of a man, so … with a man or whatever it was. So, you know, 20 years from now? But there are no immediate plans.
Which is some straight up straight bullshit. The same bullshit we've been hearing with straighwashing forever. When we have so few LGBTQ characters on TV and in comics, every one of them matters.

If you want to know the apparently sordid truth of Constantine's sexuality, check out my Spotlight on him.
