“I give you your princess. I give you our DAUGHTER!

Important. Oh my gosh this is so important. This is who Diana is, not just to Hippolyta but all the Amazons.

She is their daughter – all of them. She is the child of each of them, she is born the flesh of Themyscira itself. She is the soul of the child Hippolyta lost in her previous life, but she is born not just to their queen but to each woman of the island collectively. She’s a little bit of each and every one of them.

She does not require a father. She has a freaking island of Amazons as her parents.

Changing that detail changes absolutely everything about her. And it makes what she represents lesser by extent.

That clear? We all clear? Okay good.
