Terk, voiced by out and proud Rosie O'Donnell, is the quintessential tomboy, the ultimate lesbian-coded trope. She just clearly comes off as a butch lesbian-- so butch that a lot of people mistake her for a boy. In fact, when the movie was adapted for Broadway, Terk's character was re-written as an older man. Implication that by the time she grows up, Terk will have transitioned? Maybe. Or maybe Terk is genderfluid, or gender neutral. The queer possibilities are endless!
