'Transgender Warning' issued over Ugly Shrek Stepsister

The conservative Illinois Review blog has criticized the makers of Shrek the Third of "promoting transgenderism" because of the film's depiction of a manly stepsister:

Shrek_stepsister_3"Shrek's not the problem. It's the awkward inclusion of a transvestite and the uselessness of the character himself (herself?) in the story that is troubling. Right in the midst of a warm 'traditional family' setting, the film writers place a man dressed as a woman in with Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White (the good gals). The crossdressing character simply doesn't make sense, except as a ploy to desensitize children and parents to transgenders. Homosexual activists now are careful to not only use the term 'LGBTs' as a unit, they are more boldly now declaring lesbians-gays-bisexuals-transgenders as a unit pushing together as one for civil rights. Those confused about their sexual roles are pushing for equal rights to be free to publicly demonstrate their odd sexual behavior. For transgenders, appearing to be a different sex in public is their particular turn on. We need to understand that acceptance of this sexual behavior is just another step moving our world toward sexual chaos."

First of all, transgender is different than transvestite. I've also known a few women who just happen to sound like Larry King (who reportedly voices this gal). And if we're talking characters who might inspire children to don devilish drag, Cruella DeVille was way ahead of the curve on this one.

  1. Though the accusuations are ridiculous, the hatred and the ignorance in the article are inexcusable.

    "For transgenders, appearing to be a different sex in public is their particular turn on."

    This statement alone is enough for me to punch someone. Apparently this idiot doesn't know the difference between "transvestite" and "transgender". Transgendered persons are indeed living in sexual chaos but more importantly sexual hell. Mainly because of moronic notions like those expressed in this piece of drivel.

  3. This conservative, Illinois blogging group must not follow too well and they are running a quart low on oil. This character was in Shrek 2. Hell, there are more homosexual/transexual alludings in the second movie, then there are in the present movie.

  5. Getting a credit card is a challenge, it's a duel between your creditor and you. The winner is the one who benefits the most. I am trying to choose a credit card right now. Which offer would you recommend at

  7. Transvestite is part of the Transgender umbrella.
    A transvestite is most likely straight and doesn't dress up for a fetish, it's part of them.

  8. Hey folks, welcome to Homophobes 'R Us! Can this person be more insecure?? When are these bigots going to realize that gender is not (and never was) a black-and-white issue. No human being on this planet is perfectly-male or perfectly-female (except in their own minds perhaps)--we all fall differently on two gradual scales, physically and mentally (and often not matching each other).

    Hey guys, get your tiny heads out of the dark ages. Look around you--everybody is unique. We are all different from each other, in every way. That is how God intended it, not your little close minded, frightened-of-all-that-is-different little world. Admit it: If you had been born 60 years earlier, you'd be hanging people from trees because their skin just happened to be darker than yours. It's the same thing you're doing now.

    Oh, as if it mattered: I happen to be straight. And I see nothing to fear from people trying to love other people. It's the bigots (the haters) who are the dangerous freaks on this planet.
