TV All My Transgender Children

Admittedly, I’m not really up on the latest trends among soap opera writers, but having the lesbian daughter of the iconic Erica Kane make out with a male-to-female transsexual seems pretty progressive. Granted, said pre-op tranny is a very stereotypical, “flamboyant rock star” bestowed with the freakish name of “Zarf,” but the producers actually brought in consultants from GLAAD. The story arc begins on Thursday and I predict plenty of angry housewives across the Red states will be letting networks know their thoughts. Bravo, AMC!
Incidentally, this Zarf character adores Mike Patton and showed up in this widely circulated and completely hilarious Youtube clip a couple of months ago.
