CHILDREN'S NETWORK LAUNCHES TRANSSEXUAL SUPERHERO SHOW
Big Hollywood ^ | 28 May 2013, 10:40 AM PDT | by BEN SHAPIRO

CHILDREN'S NETWORK LAUNCHES TRANSSEXUAL SUPERHERO SHOW

Nothing says “child-appropriate material” quite like gender-bending underage superheroes.

At least that’s the theory over at the Hub, the network co-owned by Discovery and Hasbro, which is trotting out its latest soon-to-be-dud, SheZow.

That show follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy named Guy who uses a magic ring to transform himself into a crime-fighting girl.

Yes, you read that correctly. When Guy says the magic words – “You go girl!” – he becomes SheZow, wearing a purple skirt and cape, as well as pink gloves and white boots.

The chief executive of the Hub, who may or may not have been high (and leftist) when she greenlit this project, is Margaret Loesch.

Loesch commented, “When I first heard about the show, my reaction was ‘Are you out of your minds?’ Then I looked at it and I thought, ‘This is just funny.’”

The target audience for the Hub is children aged two to eleven.

Ben Shapiro is Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News and author of the New York Times bestseller “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (Threshold Editions, January 8, 2013).

Now if he turned into Shania Twain that would be something.

America’s moral footing is gone. There are still some aspects of it that are somewhat “great,” but America is not a great country anymore.

Am I the only sane person left in America?

I swear there is more insanity every day.

The people who thought up this show, the people who display it, the people who advertise on it should all be incarcerated in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital for the insane for the rest of their insane lives.

LOL!

I just googled for pictures, and Shania is still looking extremely good.

Gag. Too much of anime influence. This reminds me of “Ranma ½”, about a teenage martial-arts antihero (of sorts) who was cursed to transform into a girl when splashed with cold water and reverted to being a boy when splashed with hot water.

I watched an X-Files episode from Season 1 this past weekend, where the “alien” creature could morph between male and female in seconds. I didn’t realize that even in the 90’s, we were being primed to accept this garbage.

A couple years ago The Hub was trying to get an Islamic cartoon on the air, “The Five” or something like that. I’ve since wondered if FOX News took that name as a jab for one of their shows.

The only positive I see out of this is that it’s airing on a cable channel most cable stations don’t carry. The Hub is owned by Hasbro toys. So if you want to hurt these people where they live, stop buying Hasbro products like Transformers, G.I Joe and My Little Pony.

Boycotting My Little Pony should be easier for their fans, since they’re already up in arms about turning the cartoon ponies into teenage girls. (Equestria Girls)

Has their whole cartoon/toy line gone “Transformers”?

No, but did Heinlein portray the sex morphers as assuming the identities of a staunchly conservative Christian sect?

Which is often used as pornography in Asian countries where the characters engage in very graphic sexual acts and is viewed by teens all over the world. I discovered that when I found it on my sons computer many years ago and confronted him about it.

The best way to put an end to this garbage is to stop sending these idiots a check.

Wow, this is going to open up a whole line of fan fiction that attempts to answer the question...

What happens if they get knocked up while they are transformed, what happens to the fetus when they tranform back and when they transform back again are they still preganant and what are the philisophical ramifications of such things and oh mhy I have just gone cross-eyed....

No ... it was far weirder than that ... male brain transplanted into female body, in which some of the female consciousness still resided. It went downhill from there ... IMO, it marked RAH’s descent into madness, and the end of my interest in him as a worthwhile author.

What happens when they can put a brain into a robot body.... Then you could technically jam a human brain into a body of Robot Rinoscerous and create an army of John McCain's....

He was neither senile nor on drugs ... he was a libertarian atheist (borderline anti-theist, IMO, certainly anti-religion) and it shows in his writing. In many respects, he seems to me to reject the idea of objective right and wrong. That is, with the usual libertarian atheist exception that belief in a supreme being or worship thereof is wrong.

OK ... just making sure. IWFNE would be even weirder than it is had it been written by a novelist in any other genre.

Creative writing isn't as easy as it looks ... and anybody knows who has actually tried it.

Every child has a bullseye on him or her. It's no lie that "they are after OUR children". Any sane and caring parent has to be ultra cautious about what influences their children - whether it be movies, music, books (do kids read books any more?), friends and of course ...school. Schools are the ultimate indoctrination into perversion and leftist commie junk. And people who think things like "Well, I teach them right from wrong at home, and they're going to get exposed sooner or later, and anyway I don't want them to grow up isolated from "normal" life etc" shouldn't be surprised when Johnnie or Janey comes home and tells you "I'm really not a boy/girl, I'm a girl/boy". Children and that includes teenagers are very easily influenced, that's why in the "olden days" parents were very careful about what and who influenced their children. Now children are just thrown to the wolves.

Anyone wanting on/off either ping list, freepmail me.

http://corporate.discovery.com/contact/viewer-relations/

My kids are huge fans of The Hub, and I let them watch some (not all) of the shows there. But I just wrote them a scathing note telling them I’d better not see a bunch of ads for this “edgy” “transgressive” “gender-bending” crap, or we’ll be ditching The Hub and heading to Disney instead. Does anyone else feel like giving them their .02 as well? ;o)

The target audience for the Hub is children aged two to eleven.

Matthew 18:6 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

I think that makes it pretty clear.

I get the idea: You want to be a super-hero, you turn into a girl.

However, the target audience is all wrong.

I remember a fantasy novel called Transformer about a guy who could turn himself into a woman at will when he needed to kick some butt.

The concept worked fine for the adult audience that it was intended for.

That pic reminds me of a 70s Saturday show... the small group of ‘heroes’ travelled around in an RV (and was the first time I saw the manned jet pack)..

A couple of years ago, I was trying to find the name of it, but gave up.. any idea of the name of that show?

You're thinking of "Ark II" from 1976.



I also remember "Shazam" that ran from 1974-77 where Billy Batson (who became Captain Marvel) travelled in an RV with "Mentor" who was his guide.
