Also, to finish my Degrassi ranting…
My sister and I were watching during the Fimogen kiss, and my idiot stepsister walks by. My sister (mind you, she’s 10, but she knows I’m gay, I assume she’s not hateful to the gay thing as I’ve explained things to her before) points to the screen and says, “See? Bad influence!” I immediately turn to her and say “What the hell is that supposed to mean?!”
The other bitch, who is 23, says, “Oh, she just means because I don’t like that show, it’s a bad influence to kids.” Is she fucking stupid? She thinks the show is teaching bad things to kids apparently, as my sister brought up My Body is a Cage, and I explained to her Adam’s situation being transgender, and she said that that episode would teach kids to burn themselves. I told her that wasn’t the point, the show was made to explain to people that don’t know what being transgender means and also shows how LGBT kids self-harm because they have no other outlet for their pain, depression, etc. I think she got it.
Now I just need to focus on getting her away from our stepsister, because she’s clearly the bad influence. -_-
