Yeah the original series was weird. Some of it owning to American standards and practices still being pretty strict in 80s even for a syndicated cartoon show. I honestly don't know how Robotech got through some of it more "controversial" stuff (stuff like the death toll in First War, and Lancer cross dressing to be Yellow Dancer in the Third War) to air. Although to be fair I think WEP was playing it far safer for Voltron: Defender of the Universe than HG was for Robotech.

Now of days none of that stuff wouldn't bat eyelash. I'm generally surprised that was no major outcry (or at least none that aware of) over Pidge's gender and if Pidge is a transgender character or not.
