OK so a boy finds a a belt tries it on and he suddenly has super hero powers except one thing. He becomes a girl externally, when he says ‘Go Girl’, but he retains all the bumbling innocent endearing ineptitude of a adolescent boy regarding all things female.
So is this child’s superhero identity really a metaphor for transsexuality? Creator Obie Scott Wade tells Zap2it no.
“SheZow is not transgender. He’s a boy, his gender never changes, he’s just trapped in a silly costume.”
Sounds like great harmless fun and a unique learning tool as boys come to respect and understand girls.
Not everyone feels the way I do though like the Christian Post which is pushing the Million
bigot Mom petition calling for a end to the ‘transgender’ show saying “This appears to be a not-so subtle indoctrination attempt by the gay, lesbian and transgender community—this time with impressionable children.”
Note to the Christian Post. This advertisement was on top of your website when I visited. It shows a hot young girl in an extremely short mini skirt on top of a pool table on her knees in what is inevitably construed as a sexual position by men. Is this what you want your impressionable children who visit your site to emulate? Really? Get off your high self righteous preposterous patriarchal bigoted ‘christian’ horse.
And so what if some kids assume SheZow is transgender? Your own bible tells you three times to love and accept transgender people. Open it for once would you?
