Grant Morrison says Batman is gay, like super duper gay

For decades, people have been pointing out various homoerotic elements in the Batman story. Batman has had a collection of one night stands and short term girlfriends, but mainly he seems concerned about Robin. In a recent interview with Playboy, comic book writer Grant Morrison talked about the subtle and not so subtle gay subtext in Bruce Wayne’s world.

He’s very plutonian in the sense that he’s wealthy and also in the sense that he’s sexually deviant. Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay. I think that’s why people like it. All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn’t care-he’s more interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid.
