You mean Princess Turdina.
If you take a look at the episode you will see that there were not really implications, faggots in tumblr turned it into a "trans" subject and it reached many places, I remember seeing it even in FB.
When Cotugno came on board of this functional train that SVTFOE still was I'm sure she decided to start pushing some of her personal agenda and beliefs.
Because if you see the next episode we have that "Can I keep the dress?" at the very last 2 seconds before closing the episode.
Then during Coronation when Eclipsa mentions Marco is also known as "Princess Turdina" we have a quick change of image to Star for her to say a "Yes!" and make a pose of "winning".
