For we're celebrating :flagProgress: and this week, it's shows.

Amusingly, SheZow show is not explicitly LGBT-themed. However, the premise of a boy turning into a feminine superhero [unsurprisingly] generated a lot of controversy amongst certain groups who decried a nefarious, trans agenda on the part of the creator and network and brought out a host of well-trodden reasons why the show deserved to be banned (1/2)

SheZow is included because it demonstrated the continuing ignorance and adversity that LGBT people must face, even in instances where it is completely unwarranted.

If anything, it highlighted the social stigma that something as simple as clothing and appearance can burden someone with.

The show was not renewed for a second season for unrelated reasons due to the Hub's change in ownership. (2/2)
