Poor Maria. I have nothing but sympathy for anyone who thinks they have to feel like this. Having tried to deny my own transsexuality for a majority of my life, I can say that in my experience, hiding something like this NEVER gets easier, emotionally-speaking. Even Rudy feels bad. He wants his sister to accept herself and be happy (although he may have an unconventionally mischievous way of showing it).
Also, you may have seen the poster
in Maria’s room before (assuming you regularly hang around my DeviantArt page).
