Hasbro is one of those companies that most of us could never imagine as one of life’s bad guys.
The people at Hasbro make toys and children’s entertainment, for crying out loud. Sure they’ve been behind some animated shows that were little more than extended commercials for the latest action figure, but Hasbro has never been high on the list of things parents need to worry about.
How things change.
In more ways than one, in this case.
Hasbro and Discovery, co-owners of The Hub children’s network, are behind a new animated show called “SheZow.”
The main character is a 12-year-old boy named Guy who gets powers from a magic ring.
It all sounds pretty standard, except that Guy’s superpower is to turn into a girl. Uttering the phrase “You go, girl,” Guy becomes a preteen transsexual superheroine with thigh-high boots and a cape.
(And you thought the Wonder Twin who turned into a bucket of ice was disturbing.)
So we can add Hasbro now to the list of companies trying to appease the homosexual rights movement by indoctrinating kids into the world of sexual depravity.
A representative of the homosexual activist group GLAAD, Rich Ferraro, said that any complaint about the gender-bending SheZow “demonstrates a profound ignorance of transgender people since this show doesn’t include any.”
I don’t even want to know what that means. …
The homosexual rights movement always insists that homosexuals are “born that way” and there’s no changing it. Isn’t it odd then, how they persist in trying to “educate” children about the lifestyle?
The transsexual “SheZow” is a long way from “He-Man,” though perhaps we should have been forewarned with “Transformers.”
It’s a shame to think that a company like Hasbro would sacrifice members of its 12-and-under target audience just to shore up ratings at the struggling Hub network.
I don’t see The Hub’s ratings going up anytime soon.
