This show COMPLETELY sucks!! While I am not against gays, I am against this bombardment of gayness!!! Just because I am not against it, doesn’t mean I want to see it every time I turn around either! You are living in a dream world if you think it’s okay for a (gay) student to meet his (gay) teacher in his apartment… Get REAL!! BTW… NO, I DON’T want to see this $hit!!
1) I’m sorry you feel as if Degrassi “bombards” you with gayness, despite the fact that in season 13 the gay characters on this show have been mostly support characters. In other words, they haven’t had a chance to “push their gayness in your face” until this episode.
2) No rational person believes it’s okay for a (gay) student and (gay) teacher to hang out at the (gay)teacher’s apartment. Heck, the fact that they’re gay is irrelevant, because it’s wrong either way. And if the fact they’re gay is the only thing anyone can see in regards to this storyline, then you people aren’t paying attention.
What’s been Tristan’s story on this show since he first came along? He’s been a guy who wants love and attention. And whenever he has a chance to get it he develops tunnel vision, blindly thinking with his heart and not his brain. He can’t see that this relationship he’s about to get into with Yates is VERY inappropriate. When Tristan is in this mode he is easily manipulated, and Yates is a master manipulator, preying on Tristan who feels alone because his parents are fighting and his friends are preoccupied with other things. THE DANGER OF A KID BEING MANIPULATED BY AN ADULT (ESPECIALLY WHEN SAID KID IS EMOTIONALLY VULNERABLE) is what viewers should be paying attention to, not the sexuality of said characters involved.
3)Also note that while P is tired of seeing “gayness” at every turn on Degrassi, there was no mention in the complaint about the attractive lesbian couple that also has a storyline in this episode.
My explanation in point number 2 above is why I’m excited for Tristan/Yates. It’s wildly inappropriate, and Tristan doesn’t see it. I kind of hope that this storyline goes so far tonight that I need a shower afterward…Yates is so slick, and sleazy.
I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I thought I missed something when it was revealed that Imogen and Jack haven’t gotten together yet! I’m sorry, I’m used to couples on TV shows getting together immediately after it’s revealed they like each other. I’m not sure what to think of them yet, so hopefully the next two episodes will provide clarification.
I also don’t really have an opinion on Frankie and Chewy, I’m just hoping their simple C plot is decent filler.
