Empathy in the 1st degree
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
So this review goes out to the late Jeff Barker as Alex Kingston proves
her client of empathy in the first degree.
