So the female school uniform issue comes to a happy conclusion, with Annie being allowed, nay, ordered by the principal, and him addressing her by the correct female title and pronouns ( well almost, 'sportsman' was incorrect ), to wear the correct female school uniform ?

BTW---I like the fact that, although the principal is a formidable and impressive person, the principal's face is never shown. Good mystery progression !

All this ... for swearing in French?! Qu'est qui se passe? So Mr Lee at least knows some French after all... seems like all he wanted to do was pick on her.
Good that the principal addressed her mostly correct, but typical that Annie was taken aback by that. School sucks in so many ways

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Sportsman is still the correct term. It is one of those situations where the positive male bias holds regardless of gender. The same is sometimes applied in the military, where female COs are called sir.
As for the faces not being seen? I want oppressive entities to be faceless. So it kinda worked out that way.

@stickygirl: The first thing anyone learns in another language is the swears. So Mr Lee must have recognized the french word for rump. I suck hard at French, but I still recognize some words.

For everyone involved - she should be taken aback because she is enrolled as a dude. Her name is on the papers as a dude. Everything is dudely. Except the principal probably thinks there is a typo and is going by what he sees instead of what he reads.
Good thing he doesn't ask for clarification.

I think you call actresses 'actors' over there too? Female officers call Ma'am over here in the UK ( Ma'am as in calm, not jam ) ur welcome :)

It's only recently that actresses have been addressed as actors when speaking specifically of the female professionals. I think I noticed the change a couple years ago.

As for the military, not sure about current practice, but when I was in the Navy, it depended on the officer. I think there was only one on my ship who wished to be addressed as "Sir". All the others accepted "Ma'am".
