Did we miss something on diversity?

People are calling this anti this or that

The show is about having fun yes their is crossdressing but thats not the samething as what people would call being lgbt. have forgotten that one doesn't have to be gay to crossdress its just acting. yes any male would probably freak out at first by being forced to dress like a girl it would take time for some to get used to it. Their is nothing bad about the show nore is it trying to promote a agenda. Its funny full of detail yet actually isnt just overboard with sillyness the show actually makes sense when watching the story play out it has a good message to many males have forgotten that dressing up like a girl you can learn alot about acting as the opposite gender guy could be considered a role model

This title has:

Great messages

Super-sexist anti-sexism

Who know what the creators of this thing were thinking, other than a way to make a few bucks? The show introduces kids to extreme gender caricatures that wouldn't even occur to most, and then pretends to knock them down while actually reinforcing them. On the positive side: Its gender-bending theme is fascinating to my 6 year who, like many kids her age, are very focused on figuring out the boy-girl thing. It's animation is interesting in its now-familiar retro-50s cartoon style. The gender puns, while tedious to an adult, are clearly amusing to smart kids. BUT: Whatever your religious or political orientation, this show isn't for your kids. It's deeply intellectually and psychologically dishonest.
