If we’re discussing Bitty’s family having reactions to his coming out slightly more nuanced than either “we already know and love and accept you” or “we no longer have a son, get out of our lives,”
Then for your consideration I present Suzanne as the loving-and-accepting-except-SHE-CANNOT-MANAGE-HER-ANXIETY mom when Bitty comes out. Like, she cries for two hours when he tells them, then bakes Jack a pie. Then cries some more.
“I love you, Dicky, it’s just that your life is going to be so HARD for you!”
“What if it ever gets out about you and Jack? Oh honey, so many people will be against you!”
“I heard about this homophobic hate crime somewhere else and thought about you and cried, then called you up to tell you about it.”
“Make sure you don’t look too… provocative when you go out to Boston this weekend, okay, sweetie? I want you to stay safe.”
Like, essentially loving, but she needs to STOP DUMPING THIS CRAP ON HER SON.
