From my earliest memory of her, I always assumed that Amazons were all lesbians. It's kind of obvious. "Island that no man can walk upon." Men are their enemy. 

But Diana broadened that scope. She was at least Bi given she went to man's world and she fell in love with a man. Whether she also had lovers back on Paradise Island wasn't exactly within the Comics Code to portray, although I wouldn't be surprised if some comic book run had portrayed that in more modern times. Seems natural that she would have.

It's also very natural in my eyes that gay people, women in particular, would adopt her as their personal heroine. I think that's great. Doesn't mean she can't be a heroine for Cis folks as well. Fantasy is special because it doesn't have boundaries.

Besides, a bisexual/lesbian goddess kind of winds my clock in any case.

The official statement released by DC comics a few years ago is that Diana is bisexual, which caused quite a bit of stir at the time.
The other interpretation is from an issue of the Digital first Sensation Comics, which was very sweet in sentiment, but very ham-fisted in delivery.
Saying that there is no difference is a beautiful idea, but it also flattens out and ignores many real and present problems. Feeling that there is a word to define your sexual and romantic preferences is a powerful feeling. It gives you the impression of not being alone in the world. You feel that you can be open about yourself.
The same is true about representation. Seeing someone that looks like you or you can rellate to being a positive model push you to be better and take risks that you would normally never even consider. If you want a big example, think of Nichelle Nichols meeting MLK and being told how she was inspiring an entire generation of African-American girls .

Also, that's a lie, Lynda Carter actually wrote two Wonder Woman stories for special anniversary issues.

When I read this, I immediately thought of Lynda as Diana Prince, who, with alot of guys falling over themselves and chatting up the beautiful Diana, she would just roll her eyes, reply with a comeback line, and walk away with a smile whilst still rolling her eyes.
I suppose it made her beauty even more attractive and untouchable on-screen. (I always thought it was because she only had eyes for Steve Trevor, but perhaps not...)

I think perhaps she was referring to not being the originator and the original writer who developed the character. At least that's how I read her tweet.

If you know anything at all about William Marston, creator of Wonder Woman, you know that the character & comic book were all about alternative sexuality right from the start. It's hard for me to imagine how this isn't obvious.

There is a series of scenes on this YT channel where Wonder Woman and the Queen appear to be 'more than friends.'
Given the information from Lynda about her character, the scenes look like they would kind of add up...
