* BrokenBase: Did the episode handle transsexuality well or was this yet another failure at trying to satirize alternative sexualities, as seen on "Family Gay" (to compare, ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' episode "Terry Unmarried" was commended for handling bisexuality well. Maybe the answer to this question is "This episode failed at handling transsexuality well, but not because the writers are transphobic, but probably because they didn't know a lot about it or [[ExecutiveMeddling FOX told them to tone down a lot of stuff that would have made the episode more believable and less offensive]]). Another alternate idea could be that the episode wasn't from the viewpoint of a transsexual, it's about someone being told that their friend or loved one is transsexual and awaiting surgery for their transition. The episode was more about Quagmire dealing with the fact that his dad was actually transsexual and how he tries to come to terms with this revelation despite his questions and discomfort, because his views of his father was completely changed in a few minutes despite knowing him for far longer.

** It really doesn't help that SethMacFarlane was boasting that this episode would be "the most sympathetic portrayal of a transgender character in television history," only to be the umtillionth work of fiction to feature [[UnsettlingGenderReveal a character projectile vomiting after finding out that the person they found sexy was trans]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Sorry, SethMacFarlane, but this is far from the most sympathetic portrayal of a transgendered character on television.

** Did Brian deserve to be beaten up by Quagmire? Yes, it's yet another example of Quagmire's hate for Brian (and very satisfying for people who hate Brian), but Brian didn't know anything about Quagmire's dad getting a sex change. So really, only those who really do hate Brian will see it as something he deserved.

*JerkassWoobie: Sure Brian can be a jerk at times, but in this episode, it is hard not to feel bad for the canine when Quagmire beats the living crap out of him.
