Empathy in the 1st degree

Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
11 February 2016

Years ago my late friend from the United Kingdom Jeff Barker told me of how when he was growing up gay he was incredibly fortunate to have the equivalent of a guidance counselor in their public school be a gay man. It gave him both safe space and a person to run interference for him in his teen years growing up in Manchester.

This SVU story is about a transgender teen a M/F kid played by Bridger Zadina and the interest shown in her by guidance counselor Aisha Hinds. This kid comes from one troubled home where the parents are getting divorced and their child is what divides them. The father does not like having a daughter replace his son and the mother is supportive.

When the father is beaten and nearly killed the investigation takes them to Zadina. But it's Hinds that cops to the crime and she's done more than give moral support. In fact she's supplied Zadina with the needed medications to transition.

Michaela McManus is the ADA on the case and there's a rule of them that you never ask a question without knowing the answer. Does she get an unexpected answer when Hinds is put on the stand by defense attorney Alex Kingston.

So this review goes out to the late Jeff Barker as Alex Kingston proves her client of empathy in the first degree.
