The students really aren't respecting Harper, are they? He might be an ass and all, but shouldn't students still speak to their elder/master/whatever in the authoritive? Like if you go to a church, you call the pastor father, not just his last name. I'm an atheist and I still call a priest father out of respect to his position. Anyways.

This is one of those situations where it is really helpful that Wendy knows Annie is TG instead of having to guess what the fuck is going on.

Wendy is taking this MUCH HARDER than Annie is. Doesn't look like Annie is too tired to fight back, more like Wendy is just freaking diving in here!

I have to disagree with your point about authority and respect. We invented those concepts to ensure that important decisions would be made by people capable of taking them. If a person in a position of authority shows themselves clearly incapable of making a wise decision, then their authority should be ignored. Likewise, a person who abuses or otherwise fails to properly fulfill the duties of their position should not receive the respect that comes with that position. Authority is contingent on the people under that authority. If those people decide an authority figure is an ass, then does their authority still have any worth?

There's a difference between respecting the position and respecting the person that holds it. Harper might be an ass, but he's still the leader of the school. His rulings regarding the school are absolute, and should be contested through the proper channels. But obeying the rules he makes doesn't mean that you have to do so with a smile.
We respect our elders because they're (supposed to be) wiser than the younger generation, but there are a lot of teens and young adults who are wiser and making better decisions than their parents.
My grandfather once told me, "treat everyone like your friend until they give you reason to do otherwise," and I think that's equally applicable to people in authority. Treat them with respect until they give you reason to do otherwise. Then treat them as an equal.

@Nick: Agreed. That is exactly how I've always felt on the matter. Give respect, even to those who you don't necessarily agree with, as long as they are likewise respectful to you.

If they become disrespectful, then you no longer need to show them respect, until they earn your respect again.

Somebody really needs to slap the nurse with something, say a dead fish. Or a hammer. Using a name that isn't the child's legal name, plus using a boys name on a girl in a school is just asking for trouble. How this man keeps his job, I mean really. He can't even hold a secret in

@Ralph: Annie's lucky her currently legal name can be heard as a girl's name. When I read, or hear, the name Tony, it sounds the same as when I hear Toni.

When I hear my name, Bobbie, I politely correct the person saying it to Lexi, as it should be. Though, if I hear "Bob" anymore, I raise an eyebrow at the person and wonder where they've been the past ten years.
