|You hope that Jim, but unfortunately you're mistaken.|
What IS a new concept to the world of cartoons, is the predictable outrage that it brought from some people who saw Big Mac's crossdressing as an attack or insult on the Transsexual / Transgender ect ect community.
We've sung this song and danced this dance before, let's just look at what the lyrics say this time.
Actually, before we begin does anyone want to watch the cartoon where someone poses as an unknown family member of the opposite sex/gender, in order to be a hero for their family? Here's a link to the episode.
Oh oops. Sorry. That's a link to Disney's award-winning 1998 masterpiece Mulan.
Anyway lets look at some rage.
At the time of posting, this was the number 1 result on tumblr for the phrase "transphobia"
Now that we've gotten all that out of the way, can we ask is anyone shocked at the response?
It is important to note that it's a very vocal minority making these claims that the episode was an attack on the Trans community.
In the war for rights and equality, one must wonder if this is a time where no one knows what side they're on, or even where the battle is taking place.
Tune in next time. Because there's always a next time.
