I have loved Batwoman and will keep up with it till 26, then I see what happened next... I'll drop it if they bring on a writer I think will destroy it or god forbid try to make Kate straight. That has been rumoured before and will have such a backlash DC won't know what hit them.

Nnnno, I think this is one decision they'd want to avoid screwing up. I mean, comic book fanboys may be a visceral, entitled lot, but they'll also face backlash from gay rights groups, people who might actually do something more than post on internet forums when antagonized.
You and I can post all we want about how much we hate a costume or character being changed, but the latter groups will use mass media to call DC out on being "homophobic" (particularly the groups that mostly want attention and aren't afraid to make a mountain out of an ant hill...like Jessie Jackson!!). That leads to the kind of bad publicity they DON'T want. Remember when they were getting Orson Scott Card to write Superman stories? Yeah, turning Kate straight, or even her having an "experimental" fling with a dude, would illicit something worse.
