Some thoughts on Lost Girl, GLAAD and transphobia:
"…[It] essential that any such claims be viewed in full context. These are not human characters, but – as the producers mentioned – fantasy characters based in mythology. The producers’ intent was not to have the warden be a trans character, but a genuine trickster with unsavory motivations. This was not a person trying to live her truth. And therein lies the key difference.
The other important thing to note is the Lost Girl universe has never once made an issue of sexuality. Characters have been lesbian, bisexual and fluid in ways rarely seen on television. And, better yet, it has never been a source of angst or discrimination for the characters either. In many ways, it portrays sexuality in an almost mythical post-gay world where people aren’t seen as gay or straight or whathaveyou, but just people who like other people, period. Likewise, the character’s sexual orientation does not drive their moral compass. People just are – good, bad, gay straight. It’s part of what I love most about the show.
Given the show’s track record on presenting strong and inclusive LGBT characters, I am not surprised they would be responsive to anything that might upset its audience. So I am glad they issued the statement. But I am also sad that they had to. Because this is truly one of the most LGBT positive shows on the air now with a production staff and actors who have proven their commitment and appreciation of the community.”
