So. That was probably the most pleasant two-faced jerkfacing ever. In the same breath, she goes from full volume voice about being supportive (so Wendy can hear if she is awake) and then whispering so only Annie can hear the horrible things she is saying.

There was a time when what Ms Corning is saying was true. If you were known to consort with gays, queens, rock music, black people, basically anything that we can go back in history and randomly discriminate against for NO GOOD REASON, you could lose your entire future. Now though, we live in a time when knowing LGBT people, and especially being supportive of, say, a transgirl being on the cheerleadering team, is a bonus on your college resume! They WANT diversity now!

Ms Corning needs to get up to date. And stop being a casual bitch about it. I can get where she is coming from, but that doesn't make it right. I seriously hope that Wendy knows better than her mother.

I think Annie is cute in Wendy's shirt. I wonder what material that is.

@Erin: That's not very nice. Ms Corning recognizes that she and Cindi won't get through life on their wit, and have to rely on social skill and confident beauty. Just because she doesn't know how to deal with trans people doesn't make her objectively stupid, as your comment might imply. She is doing the best she can to protect her daughter, who she knows needs very good social standing to make it to college and a job that pays better than (I'm guessing Best buy?).

Ms Corning may has said some truly hurtful things. But it was not from a place of bigotry or hatred. She needs to be forgiven, and taught. Not shamed and ratified in her beliefs.

Annie needs to remember that she can stand up for herself. She did with Vic's dad, and he respected her more as a result.

@Yan Mouson: At a certain point, people just stop fighting. There is only so much they can take before everything is grey and there is no strength left.

Annie did stand up for herself today. She fought, hard. She protected herself physically, and then she protected her identity. She fought to stay out of the hospital that hurt her. She is fighting to stay awake. This last bit, after all this fighting.. she has nothing left.

Just think what would have happened if this happened before the football guy happened..

@GreenKrog: I know I'm late on the reply here but oh my god I feel like a jerk on this one, even though we're talking about a fictional character.

Somehow, my idiotic brain, cursed with a complete lack of short term memory, temporarily forgot how Annie got here in the first place. So yeah, I get why she might not feel like getting angry and doing an impassioned speech right now.

@Yan Mouson: At this point I think it is a long term memory problem. I just realized today while posting August 2016 that it takes between now and then jut to get through the month of October. I am slower than Misfile.

Otherwise, yes, you are a terrible person and should feel bad :)
