Dating in the dark glamour model
It felt like mom was trotting out her prized pony for pics.
The random "there she is" we kept hearing and picture after picture would be enough to drive anyone into bolting down the sidewalk like Jazz did.
I can see how the Pride crowd would be overwhelming, but it seemed Jeanette added to that.
I actually think a lot of it is staged and scripted because I notice how often Jazz will say how terrible and humiliating it must be to be misgendered or called out as a male.
Sometimes she even says this in front of Noelle knowing this happens to her. I've been around many that can't pass as women and with some of them you've never been around people who are so angry and bitter in your entire life.
Not only is she at a sensitive age, but she is a special person being transgender and needs someone to get to know her as a person.
I felt bad for her and hope she knows this was all a storyline rather than real reactions. As always, I can't say enough about the wonderful Noelle. I hope she finds all the acceptance, love and happiness in the world. I know where the scene took place and I suspect that the boy Jazz gets asked out on a date on next week's episode was cast by production for this role. I am a huge LGBTQ ally (my brother is gay, although I was a staunch supporter before he came out, and I actually didn't suspect he was gay before he came out). I really thought they would have a couch interview/talking heads with Ari in relation to the bottom surgery scene, but instead they used the brothers? From what I know the Dating in the Dark scene was shot just for this episode.(For what it's worth, this makes him the most attractive man on TV, IMHO.) I think Jeannette was speaking clunkily about Jazz "wanting her privacy." I think she meant "down time", and since Jeannette is so bound and determined that Jazz be a social butterfly when she really doesn't want to be, she's taking the fame as an "acceptable substitute" when people approach her. She is so strong and so courageous, far beyond her years. Not in Florida: "Florida's age of consent is 18, though the law contains a provision allowing 16- and 17-year-olds to consent to having sex with someone age 16 to 23." I'm not sure if this episode had enough of a storyline hook to keep viewers interested. The gross dumb guy in the camo was also cast as "guy Jazz won't like" wears camo, high school drop out, has no hobbies.
