Storyline

Quagmire's father, Dan, comes to Quahog for a visit. Peter and Joe meet him, hoping to learn what makes Dan's son tick, but they soon suspect that he might be a homosexual and share their suspicions with Quagmire. At a Naval ball held in Dan's honor (where naval officers lace their praise with double-entendre statements), Quagmire finally confronts his father and learns that he is "a woman trapped in a man's body" and is planning to have a sex-reassignment operation. Quagmire is deeply upset by this, and - despite the surgery being a success, Dan emerging as an attractive blonde woman named Ida, and his friends' support - Quagmire can't accept his father's new identity. Ida decides she and Quagmire need time apart and leaves for a hotel. Meanwhile, Brian has been out of town attending a seminar on creating a Web series and is unaware of what has transpired.

You will find only cruelty an hatred heaped on a minority
27 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Full of stereotypical un-truths about trans-gendered people.This show is hatred...PURE and simply. This episode is actually bordering on incitement to harm or demean a marginalized sexual minority. The homophobia and trans-phobia in this episode is truly alarming.

You could not do this kind of thing to any other minority group and get away with it.

Trans-gendered people, according to family guy, are to be shunned, separated from society, listed as sexual deviants or predators,looked on as revolting, sickening to the point of projectile vomit.

This is akin to lynching negroes. To portray a group of people in such a negative light in the name of some sort of sick comedic kick is beyond evil. This is apparently the last minority its OK to bash publicly for jollies.

Absolulety disgusting... disturbing and close to psychopathic.
