Well, a I pretty much expected, the ABC comedy Work It didn't last long. Yes, the show that the LGBT community made a big fuss over has been canceled. And I wonder how long it will be before some extremist tries to claim a victory? A couple of transgender oriented blogs, including Mr. Cristan Williams' silliness, and Suzan Cooke's Women Born Transsexual, have made reference to its cancellation, but so far no one has claimed it was done to appease the transgender extremists who rose up in anger.
And, if they are honest, or well if they are smart, or well... Yeah, chances are pretty good that there will be an attempt to spin this as a flexing of transgender muscle. Except, it isn't. The show was brought in to replace a show with horrible ratings (something called Man Up) and wound up with even worse ratings. So, the reason it only lasted a couple of weeks is that it was just not a very appealing show.
I am still very much amused that the transgender extremists, especially those who claim to be women (after all, they have declared themselves to be women, so by hang, they are women and they will kick your keester if you suggest otherwise) seem to be completely oblivious to the fact that the show was far more insulting to women, than to transgender men dressed as women.
Well, it has been an interesting chance to observe them making fools of themselves, fighting a show that was not going to last very long, just so they could flex some muscle. In the end, they ended up looking rather weak, and the show that they were so bent out of shape over was watched by only a few people, and now it is gone. If they really cared about the show, all they had to do was wait a couple of weeks. Instead, they clearly tried to bully ABC, and wound up looking rather weak. If they try to spin this as a victory...well, they will just look even more foolish.
