For those who don't know, Cartoon Network brang back the Powerpuff Girls yesterday. I haven't seen any of the new episodes, but since the Powerpuff Girls was a show that I absolutely loved as a kid, I'd like to see what CN does with this remake. From what I understand, none of the original voice actors are coming back to do this show, which should be interesting.
More than the (rightful) complaining about representing trans issues, I think the most tumblr thing about the post is having to scroll through about 20 forwards to get to the actual post, then have it be horribly squished and formatted.
It's a crying shame, though. I remember watching Powerpuff Girls back in the day, and it was an awesome show. Shame the reboot is transphobic garbage. (This isn't the only example of it in the show either, to my knowledge.)

I don't know if I'd call it transphobic; it's more just poorly handling a very heated and difficult issue. I'm sure the writers were well-intentioned but based on that post it sounds like they botched it up pretty bad.
Again haven't seen anything but based on that and various stills from the show it seems like a pretty sloppy effort to cashgrab on nostalgia.
I'll just put my two cents in. Overall, it looks decent and the animation looks good, but it's not great. The voice acting is pretty off and I'm not a huge fan of the intro either. But I still think this might have potential.

Well there was a CGI reboot that came out about 2 years ago and it was complete garbage. Also, just about everything is CGI nowadays.

I read there was twerking in one episode, but is there also one where they do the whip/nae nae?
This is pretty much why every reboot is bad nowadays.
