“The sexual encounter is queer because both partners are queer and  the genders of the participants less relevant. Just because Batman is  male and Catwoman is female does not make their interactions  heterosexual — think about it, there is nothing straight about two  people getting it on in rubber and latex costumes, wearing eyemasks and  carrying whips and other accouterments.”
