Has anyone seen Degrassi and watched until the 10th season when we meet Adam, the trans man? Adam is a really lovable character regardless of your political stance, I remember watching it when I was a TRA and loving her, now I obviously view it quite differently, but still adore the character. It's really fun to watch if you haven't seen it. All episodes are available on YouTube. I'll link some of Adam's appearances below. Check them out! Let me know your thoughts!

I didn't find Adam/Gracie lovable. What I remember most is her staring at Dave's penis as he used a urinal, then making herself out to be the victim when he cussed her out for it. I also didn't care for how she treated her lesbian girlfriend, Fiona, for invalidating her gender identity by, of course, BEING A LESBIAN. Of course it was Adam's right to end the relationship for any reason she wished, but I disliked how she went about it. Trans been on some BS from Day One. I haven't thought about this in years, but looking back, this show probably had a role in peaking me.

ETA: Just to clarify, Dave was one of Adam's best friends, and was completely cool with her "identity," including her using the boys' bathroom, until he caught her blatantly violating his privacy while he was relieving himself. After the incident, Dave didn't want Adam to be allowed in the boys' room anymore. Even as a woman, I know that the first and most important rule of urinal use NEVER look at the other guys' junk. But of course, Adam thought the rules didn't apply to her because she was trans and was just trying to learn how to be a guy. The show framed this as Dave being in the wrong for his reaction, and then it was all about "educating" him to be accommodating to Adam. They never addressed Adam's wrong in the situation.

yeah no, Adam's the worst, and also a Trojan Horse Trans. they slip this cute little girl in on us who just wants to be a twans boy and we feel pity and guilt and like bigots for not affirming their identity, meanwhile most trans people look like Yaniv and It's Ma'am Guy and wanna rape women and harrass them and steal their political and safe spaces.
