Sorting She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (SPOP)

Let's chat about Bow & Glimmer's similarities in their sortings, and why it leads to such a disastrous break between them in the penultimate season; about why Catra has a hard time understanding Adora's decisions and loyalties in a new context; about how Adora puts her faith in powers external to her (her battle plans, her sword) when the real She-Ra lives inside her.  Shadow Weaver, Bow, and our host Kat share a Secondary sorting -- and this whole television show is FILLED with Gryffindors.  Give us a listen, and bring any questions, comments, or ideas to sortinghatchats.tumblr.com or sortinghatchats.wordpress.com.  And if you liked this episode, consider donating to a charity that defends and promotes trans rights, like the ACLU or the National Center for Transgender Equality.  ...
