This episode focuses on Ida, a trans woman and a parent of Quagmire. This was intended by massive douche-bag, Seth MacFarlane, to be a sympathetic portrayal, but he completely botched that.
In the episode, Quagmire finds out that his dad is a trans woman. She has her SRS (bizarrely without any recovery time and having never presented as a woman) and is then treated like garbage throughout the episode.
Also, the following things happen, in this order:
In response to criticism from the trans community, Seth MacFarlane had the following things to say:
Details: You predicted that another episode—about a transgendered character—would make the LGBT community happy. It didn’t.
Seth MacFarlane: That surprised me. I don’t meet a lot of stupid homosexuals. They seem to be a pretty smart bunch. But it seemed that they were not picking up on the fact that it was a very sympathetic portrayal of a transsexual character.
Details: Maybe the fact that Brian barfs his guts out when he realizes he’s had sex with a transsexual threw them off.
Seth MacFarlane: Hey, we’re still Family Guy.We’re not suddenly going to become 7th Heaven. Actually, I guess on 7th Heaven they would probably burn the transsexual at the stake. Let me think of another example. We’re not Mr. Belvedere. Look, Brian happens to be a heterosexual character, as I am. If I found out that I had slept with a transsexual, I might throw up in the same way that a gay guy looks at a vagina and goes, “Oh, my God, that’s disgusting.” It’s just the way we’re biologically wired. They should give that another look.
