From The New Yorker:
“If I had a son who was stopped, I might feel differently about it, but nevertheless," Bloomberg said. "Maybe I was inelegant, but I don’t think anybody thinks I am anything but—I hope not, anyway—supportive of trying to help all people. With my own money as well as time, thank you very much.

TV network, “The Hub” recently introduced a new cartoon that pushed the envelope of sexuality towards children. The show is called “SheZow” and features an extreme twelve-year-old boy named Guy Hamdon, who inherits the power ring of his deceased aunt – the amazing superhero SheZow! The ring gives him villain-battling super powers, but was meant to be worn by a girl and the result is a cross-dressing superhero here to save the day and teach your kids about the confusing world of crossing gender roles.
Right wing critics are outraged about the cartoon, claiming that the cartoon is inappropriate and is confusing for children. I would have to agree. I am all about letting your child be inherently who they are, but I don’t believe in deliberately shaping their thoughts about something that they shouldn’t even be having to think about right now. The show is rated TV-Y7 (FV), which means it’s for children seven and up.The FCC implies that it “may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality.”
