THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — If conservatives are on a rampage, it must be a good thing for trans people. That is what I was thinking while scanning through political commentary about a new transgender television cartoon superhero, SheZow!
Originally an Australian children’s television series, it’s now debuting in the United States on a cable channel for kids. It’s about a 12-year-old boy who has the power to transform into a superhero to fight evil. By uttering, “You go girl!” he turns into SheZow, and off she goes, wearing white gloves and boots with a purple cape and skirt.
Now, I don’t know if this show is going to be ultimately worthwhile, however, SheZow is already knocking out conservatives, so to that I say, “You go girl!”

Americans have short memories, especially when they’re broke, But the White House is likely lost to the GOP in 2016.
What makes you say that, Lexie?
Maybe I wasn’t clear . . . The GOP has very little chance of winning the White House in 2016. Either Hillary or Biden will be too much of a match for the GOP in its current dumbed down state.
Because if someone like me will have nothing to do with the Republican Party (fiscal conservative, broadly sympathetic to moderate social conservatism and a supporter of small business) then they don’t stand a chance. I didn’t exile myself from the party because of its ferocious anti-LGBT double down, but because they played politics with our economy. Obama has asked for nothing unreasonable, including his gun proposals I’m dead set against, but they are so ideologically rigid, the perfect has become the enemy of the good, so to speak. Conservative railings against LGBT people are not the cause of, merely the symptoms of a pervasive failure of reason and pragmatism.
I am not entirely certain, but according to the writer/creator of the show – the main character is not transgender. The main character is still very much a boy and is stuck being a boy clad in a girl’s superhero costume.

As a trans woman, I wish that it was really about trans superhero, but I still love what the show is doing – breaking boundaries. I hope that this show does extremely well, especially in the US!
Thanks for the comment all! 🙂
I love the show, and, if the government forces it off, I will be extremely upset. I see nothing wrong with it. They are just picking on the good shows and wand to feed us the bad ones, of witch I won’t name. So leave the shows alone you bums and let us decide. After all, if we don’t like it, we can just change the channel.
