Yay for bisexual people! Boo for the horrible things people think about bisexuals!

So I sort of have to clarify something. Annie is NOT telling Bree about the reason why she is going to the therapist, just that she goes to a deconversion therapist.

I generally like to insult people's identity and then demand that they tell me their secrets to get people to trust me too.

@Erin: Think about it from Bree's side. There is all this stuff going on that nobody will tell her about. She is the last to know, if at all. Annie is trying to build trust to build a relationship Bree doesn't even think she wants, but trusts Bree less than anyone else. In Bree's mind, this is totally one sided.

I'm not saying this to justify. Trying to pry secrets out of someone by guilting them is a pretty messed up thing to do. I am only trying to point out that there is nuance to it if you sift through the layers.

@Erin: Honestly, I don't think Bree is entirely in the wrong here. I mean, her opinion about bisexual people is entirely wrong, but regarding Annie I get where she's coming from.

It's easy to empathize with Annie and see everyone who opposes her as wrong or mean because we see the story from her point of view.

From Bree's point of view, Annie is a weird girl who obviously keeps secrets from her despite claiming to be her friend and is acting increasingly erratically to a point where Bree no longer feels safe around her.

That's what happens when you don't trust even your own friends, and that's a major issue Annie needs to deal with. We know Annie has been through hell and is dealing with severe mental scars. Practically none of Annie's friends know that. To them, everything Annie says or does makes her seem crazier, because they have no explanation for her behavior.

Because Annie can't trust people, people can't trust her, and that prevents her from forming true, meaningful friendships.
