Oh, I've heard she's Jewish too (per unconfirmed sources). What that has to do with anything in DC comic's mind I don't know, but aren't there enough comic book heroes around to be diverse with that they don't have to cram all the diversity into one resurrected character? Next we know, Batwoman will probably end up being the descendant of Chinese railway workers from San Francisco and escaped African-American slaves from Ontario too. On her father's side.
It would have made far more sense, from a literature perspective, for Batman to come out of the closet. And then we could make more sense out of this Robin sidekick thing too.
And if they want diversity, why not do more with Green Lantern? Heck, he could run for president. Unless that's been done before.
That said, I like the boots. Are those acrylic heels?
More Batwomany goodness:
