South Park’s “Cissy” Episode was Actually Pretty Good on Trans Issues

I don’t often just share a link on Transas City without some commentary, but this writer at Slate essentially says what I would have about a recent South Park episode which focused on transgender issues. I saw the episode online and I agree with the summary from slate below almost 100%. I mean, I felt a little more sensitive to the aspect of making fun of transgender persons via Cartman as a vehicle (which is why is use the descriptor “pretty good” in lieu of “great” as per the original article), but really, after thinking about it for a while, it was a positive portrayal overall, and after the debacle of the plot with Mr. Garrison’s sex change (the reason I stopped watching the program), a pleasant surprise.

South Park’s “Cissy” episode was great on trans issues..
