After Boebert said parents should take their children to church, not drag shows, the Wonder Woman portrayer pointed out some similarities between the two.

Lynda Carter, famed for playing Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series of the same name, has taken down conspiracy-minded, anti-LGBTQ+ Congresswoman Lauren Boebert over the question of drag shows versus church.

After Boebert, a Colorado Republican, tweeted that parents should take their kids to church instead of drag shows, Carter clapped back.

Boebert is known for many anti-LGBTQ+ comments, including that teachers who include LGBTQ+ content in their lessons are "grooming" kids for abuse and that Tyra Banks's upcoming show about teen drag queens, Generation Drag, constitutes "grooming" as well.

Carter, who also played the president in Supergirl and is an accomplished singer (her latest recording is "Human and Divine"), uses her Twitter feed to speak out on a variety of social and political issues, such as gun regulations, attempts at book banning, and the insurrection of January 6, 2021. She's getting a lot of support for her response to Boebert.

And Carter summed it all up.

Last week, Carter posted a simple "Happy Pride!" alongside a colorful piece of Wonder Woman artwork by artist Paulina Ganucheau, which drew some backlash.

When one follower angrily insisted that "Wonder Woman IS NOT A SUPERHERO FOR GAYS!" Carter pointed out that the hero is "a superhero for bisexuals!" and reminded fans that the character is, in fact, canonically bi.

"I didn't write Wonder Woman, but if you want to argue that she is somehow not a queer or trans icon, then you're not paying attention," Carter added. "Every time someone comes up to me and says that WW helped them while they were closeted, it reminds me how special the role is."
