I agree with most of your points, but I don't get this one. Should writers be pissed off when someone at DC invents yet another heterosexual character? "Crap, Superman being straight was totally MY thing!" Or did you mean that Batwoman's orientation is her key selling point in terms of advertising, which I could see as a problem.
The loss of Secret Six is a big problem here, too: as you're all saying, DC had interesting LGBTQ characters who weren't defined by their orientation, and nixed three of them for no good reason.
