The Dos and Don’ts of Drama, with ‘Degrassi’: Macho, Macho Men… I Want to Be a Macho Man!

By  | 

Kudos to Degrassi for not getting all “after-school special” on Adam's transgender storyline. Last season he got beaten up for his “weirdness,” but the emotional bullying he's run into in this episode alone is probably more disturbing than any hallway fight. Dave, who's not that prejudiced, decides that he's freaked out by sharing a radio show and a bathroom with Adam; he continually refers to Adam as a girl or a freak, and mocks him on-air. Dave really knows how to keep this show interesting.
