JFB on MSNBC talking about new show “Shezow!”

I appeared on MSNBC on Saturday as GLAAD spokeswoman regarding media criticism of a new children’s cartoon, Shezow, which has as its hero a young boy who puts on a magic ring and becomes a feminine superhero, complete with crazy hair and go-go boots.  The show is a delight;  the right-wing criticism of it is not.  The video of the clip is below.

    Couldn’t launch the clip. Probably because I have radiation poisoning from a week at Assateague Island and the auld brain is a bit baked. My youngest saw a promo for the show a while back and just laughed. He’s just 6 though so everything is funny. Especially if it involves bodily functions,monkeys and/or messing with ‘gender roles’.

    Would I be correct in assuming it’s the usual swivel eyed loon suspects firing up the Outrage Bus?

    Edward had been my teacher at Johns Hopkins in the winter of 1986. He visited Colby in fall, 2007. As we took our leave of each other, he kissed me on both cheeks and said, "We have done well. You and I."

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
