Indeed. You got my point, then.

What we could do is discuss whether it is ok to have a mascot that is an
ilegitimate child. Did Daisy duck and the penguin agree on having the
child? Did they agree on one of them becoming a single parent? Did the
father penguin leave Daisy duck with the child?

Also, how about Tux' taste in alcoholic drinks?

Or is it just a male penguin looking quite happy?

Then maybe Penny is just a female penguin who likes to wear bikinis.

I am not intending to make fun of anyone, I am jsut exaggerating what
this all looks like to someone who is not deeply into feminism.
