Disney goes TG ... Sort of

In a storyline that could have come right out of TopShelf, Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place now features a transgendered character, in a roundabout way.
For those not familiar with the series, it's about a family of wizards living in the modern world and how they cope with everyday situations.
One of the staple characters, Max, was inadvertently magically transformed into a young girl, "Maxine", on the last episode. The promo "and she might be sticking around awhile" is what amused me enough to finally post about it.
I'd love to hope that she does stick around, and that this could be a step in the right direction for TG characters becoming more accepted in mainstream media, but if nothing else, it's kind of nice to see something outside the "crossdressing for comedic effect" that usually comes up when a producer/writer goes out on these limbs. :-)
Edit: Forgot to mention the title of the episode - "Three Maxes and a Little Lady"
