Tranny Tweety?

Tweety Bird, whose original name is Orson, has always had gender identification issues.  As a baby-faced male canary, he has been misidentified as a female, even though he has always been portrayed as a male and Warner Brothers constantly FAQs him as a boy.  Someone at Warner's apparently didn't get the memo, however, because the company has allowed Lot 29 to use Tweety in a line of clothes that shows him as a female.  I found this image in a Burlington Coat Factory flyer, and to make sure it wasn't some unauthorized use of the character, I did a net search and found Lot 29 women's clothes with Tweety in various girly poses at the WB Store.  So much for their denials.
