The Little Mermaid and transsexuality?

my_real_head quoted the following in this post =

My moment of fridge brilliance was when I realized that the movie is an allegory about transsexuality that works just too well. Ariel is born into the wrong body, spends her childhood dreaming about having the right body, is subject to emotional abuse by her father trying to "fix" her, sells her body to pay for some dangerous surgery by an unlicensed doctor (sea witch Ursula), and most importantly, loses her voice. It just makes too much sense. ~ Troublesome

Although, I will point out that since she wanted to change species, that technically makes her Otherkin. :-)

There's a group in the UK called Mermaids that does stuff for trans kids. I believe they are using the same analogy.
