    If we're going by her being the first public hero, she's been in man's world for at least 75 years. Drop in the pan with respect to her lifespan, but that's long enough for her to have grown very tired of that aspect of it.

    Sorry, but how old is she then?

    I mean 75 years, would be MUCH of her life or?

    I thought that its like in the movie, where she is a kid, grows up and then leaves Themyscira, so she is about lets say 95 years old?
    So being born on Themyscira, leaving it 20 years afterwards etc.

    She's immortal. Probably hundreds or thousands of years old.

    How is that sexist? Does that mean that a lone black person in a team of 10 white people is a racist if they comment on feeling uncomfortable about being the only person of color there? That makes no sense.

    In that case, we have seen very little of that process.
    «Speaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given out» (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])

    She’s literally the only woman on the team. How does that make her sexist?

    *shudders as I have flashbacks to that one time Batman stopped Wonder Woman from breathing because he kicked her in the stomach*

    But yea, there's nothing sexist about this. Every day words continue to lose their meaning on the internet.

    It's not that it's more of how things have gone in the past with DC and Diana. That she has said certain things many times about men.
