The earthquake in northern Japan has affected much more than just the people caught in the tremors, including international discussions on nuclear power, the position of the Earth itself, and now…the Simpsons? That’s right, Germany, […]
Bait and switch! No one’s getting a penis massage…at least not from GN.
Margaret Cho is one of the few recognizable female comedians in America, and has lasted decades by injecting her brand of funny into everything from scripted sitcoms to reality television. So, when given the chance […]
You know what really gets under my skin? The new direction that DC is taking Wonder Woman in. It all started back around June last year when they redid her costume. They rebooted the Wonder […]

Last spring NBC gave the ax to the one-time cultural phenomenon, Heroes, despite the fact that the channel was desperate for any random TV show due to Jay Leno failing to get the ratings that local affiliates needed for their evening news. During this time of serious upheaval at the corporate level, NBC decided that they needed another superhero show to fill the void of their DVR juggernaut.

“Another Family Guy character! Is GN gay for that show or something? Huh? Are ya gay for Family Guy, Gay-nerds.com? You should change your name to Family Gay-Nerds.com, since you love Family Guy so much. Hur hur hur.”
Projected self-loathing aside, we were hesitant to do this profile because…it’s Family Guy (again!), and worse yet, it’s Meg from Family Guy. Meg is awful. Despite all the hate she gets, Meg’s character is always evolving (and reverting) and occasionally she get’s the spotlight on the show. She’s been an Evangelical Christian, her father’s chauffeur, and the lead singer in the family band. Of course, 22-minute careers and/or affiliations are nothing new for TV characters (to say nothing of Family Guy characters). What sets Meg a part (and the reason we’re doing this article) is her supposed future status as a transgender person.
