Shezow is an animated cartoon, imported from Australia, which debuted this past weekend on The Hub (the channel once known as Discovery Kids).
It's about a little boy who finds a magic ring that transforms him into a legendary crime-fighting superhero, SheZow, who happens to be a girl.
Even though the show is not about, or even hints at, transgenderism, it is not sitting well with Focus On The Family, who clutch their pearls. Here's their ex-gay (yes, really) spokesman, Jeff Johnson:
’SheZow’ presents at a pop-culture level what transgender activists believe and what some academics have taught for years: that gender is completely socially constructed and that people can change genders… Instead of giving kids good role models to follow, this cartoon reflects our culture’s confusion about the two sexes, and kids don’t need that confused message.
What's confusing? A boy finds a ring which transforms him into a crime-fighting girl.
I still know the difference between a boy and girl.
