Horror of horrors: there’s a cartoon wherein a boy puts on a ring that dresses him up like a female superhero. You just know that’s going to bring out the RadRight/TERF fringe to proclaim that this show signals…
Here’s some of the reactions. I’ve taken these comments from a well-known RadRight blog and a well-known TERF blog.

The back story:
Media is pushing the story that a new and/or the first transgender/transsexual/crossdressing (they can’t decide how they want to spin it) kids cartoon hero is coming to televisions soon. The truth is that this show isn’t new (it’s been on TV for more than a year already) and it’s certainly not the first cartoon to crossdress (I won’t list the many, many characters here).
While the show certainly has some problems when it comes to mocking that which isn’t masculine, I wanted to see how the fringe was spinning the story and I wasn’t disappointed. Apparently this is all part of The Big Conspiracy (liberal, trans, patriarchy, godless, homosexual – take your pick) to screw with kids and make them do things on behalf of the conspiracy later in life.
