The emotions are sometimes very raw here as Jae Noel comes out to her own father and he does his best to process something he doesn't at all comprehend. But this old school gentleman will probably come around in the end and I can relate to how difficult it must be to see the person he thought was his son transition.
To help her through this, Jae is fortunate to have a supportive girlfriend who is clearly going to stand by her through all of it.
That this young transgender woman is gynephilic would not compute for the Blanchardians still stuck in the world of 30 years ago and today their heads must be exploding trying to rationalize it.
But then young Jae would not have come out back then and, like the many of us did, likely would have repressed everything for abject fear of rejection.
