Greg Rucka portrayed her as vegetarian in comics .Is it still canon ?

Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are being recruited by a food giant in a bid to counteract the rise of veganism among young Britons.

I never bought into the whole Diana being a vegan thing TBH. While I don't think she would go hunting or stare an animal in the eye and kill it or anything along those lines she would just let people do what they do. If she's a vegan she's a vegan, if not then she's not. I don't think the explanation entirely matters.

But this "campaign" against veganism is ridiculous, I don't even no where to begin. So they don't want children to start eating vegetables? Its not like this is particularly an unhealthy diet? Oh right because its not really about health, its about money.

@truethemyscira: Because there are advanced peaceful civilisation. Advanced civilization cares for animals Also they may have technology to create meat alternatives. I am talking about Marston Amazons not the New 52.

Like so much else with them, I imagine Amazons live off a bronze age diet where meat is eaten when the occasion calls for it.

Characters in general who go vegan because they can talk to animals in one way or another seems to me to be a rather weak reasoning for it, since in most cases they aren't the ones out hunting or anything like that, they only see the animal once it's on a plate in front of them... where conversation is not really possible.

So everyone who eats meat doesn't care for animals?...

That wouldn't be healthy and would lead to an excess of genetically modified food.

And there is a lot of that already as it is.

It is implied that she is still vegetarian. In #28 (I think) Etta says something like “do you want a burger? I won’t tell any of your animal friends” but Diana says no.

I think it makes perfect sense that someone who can talk to animals wouldn’t want to eat them as even if she didn’t know the particular dead animal in question, she can appreciate and understand animals in a way that we can’t.

In addition, I think she’d be appalled by the way our livestock is treated. I can maybe see her eating wild animals that have been hunted, but no way would she endorse factory farming.

Lastly, genetically modified food is nothing to be concerned about. Almost all scientists that know anything about it agree it is no more harmful than regular food.

Most people bring a bottle of wine, Diana brought a dead wild boar to dinner at the Kents'. In Paradise Island, the Amazons hold a sacred hunt in honour of Artemis during the annual Harvest festival in which they give the animal the honour of a quick and painless death, Diana would’ve been taught to treat them with due respect and dignity

This is basically how I imagine she would operate.

I don't remember what podcast I heard this but I do remember somebody asked Greg Rucka about this and he said that she used to eat it but since she learned that she can communicate with animals she can no longer eat them. He also added that she doesn't mind other people eating meat, but she personally can't eat meat anymore.

These are his views though. Who knows what DC has in their internal Wonder Woman Wiki.
