I canít claim this to be any sort of fact, but an observation that Iíve personally made through life is that the average anti-LGBT person always seems to assume everyone else feels the same way as them first by default. Itís as though they canít comprehend why someone would be an ally. You know, ďhow could someone support gays and not BE gay?Ē I canít help but shake my head at this mentality, but it is something Iíve observed quite a bit of in my life (especially in my high school days when everything about me was still a secret to everybody).
Todd very clearly represents one of these sorts, even going so far as to assume that Rudyís sister is going to hate him too. Truth be told, Maria is pretty mad at Rudy over the whole ďRubyĒ thing and she probably does hate him sometimes in that way that siblings do. At the same time, it could argued that nobody loves Rudy more than his sister. Between his family and his classmates though, maybe thatís not much of a surprise.
So, who else has goose bumps?
