A user on Tumblr announced that Robin would announce his Asexuality in a post earlier today. The post contained a link to the comic's authority web page to lend authenticity to the rumor. The revelation of Tim Drake's Asexuality would come about in an upcoming DC comic where he rejects the advancaes of a sexuality-exploring Superboy. (Asexual News cannot find the Tumblr post where this announcement was made). (Ed note: That's funny as you reblogged the Tumblr post where the announcement was made & I submitted a link to your Tumblr from the website where it was originally posted, which I see you have linked to in this aticle).
The announcement that the Tim Drake would come out as Asexual and that Superboy would explore his sexuality did not originate from any official DC Comics source, but many people reacted to this news as if it would actually appear in an upcoming comics series.
Batman and Robin have long been accused of having a homoerotic relationship, although DC has never officially adopted this notion. The joke post gathered over 400 responses, according to Fempop. Readers of the post argued over the details and the likelihood of how tastefully the comics company could pull the manuever off.
