Degrassi Junior High “Rumor Has It” (part 4 of 5)
The next day, Caitlin and Susie are walking to school. Just then, Ms. Avery pulls up in a car with her kissy-huggy Dykey Hairdo gal pal. Caitlin tries to walk away as quickly as possible, but Ms. Avery intercepts her anyway.
Avery is once again over-affectionate, putting an arm around Caitlin, and talking about Caitlin’s essay on “native peoples”, again. Ms. Avery says she cut an article out of the newspaper about native peoples for Caitlin, and she even ordered a book for the library about native peoples, just for Caitlin. Seriously? Am I the only one thinking maybe the lesbian rumors are completely true, and Ms. Avery actually has a huge crush on Caitlin?
By the way, can we leave the “native peoples” out of this? You already took away their land—they don’t need to be associated with your sick sexual fantasies, too.
Ms. Avery puts her arm around Caitlin again, and Caitlin is completely weirded out. And wouldn’t you know it, as they head up the front steps, they walk right past those two yentas Annie and Kathleen, who are—surprise, surprise—muttering silently to each other. And right before our very eyes, they create a totally new rumor to spread around the school.
