Not to be outdone by all the other terrible parents in the story (since we talked about how awful Ky's mom, Emily's mom, and Rain's dad are in the last chapter), Mr. Strongwell decides to step up his game.

If it's any consolation, I promise not every queer or gender non-conforming kid's parent in the comic is irredeemable. Aunt Fara, Chanel's parents, and Ana's dad are all still - and will always be - cool.

Some (probably optimistic) predictions of what might happen:

a)Norman steps things up into really serious abuse territory (e.g., conversion therapy attempts), but Rudy and Maria either escape or are rescued by the rest of the cast.

b)Maria and Rudy stay with Gavin's mom, or Chanel's parents, at least until they find a more permanent home.

c)The Strongwell parents stop paying tuition, but they've already paid for this year so Rudy and Maria can finish the year off unimpeded.

d)Norman might accuse whoever Rudy is staying with of "kidnapping" his son, but if he was really abusive in ways other than emotional abuse then their parents could end up losing custody (and they are in New York, so the law is more likely to be on Rudy's side).

e)Rudy would probably have to transfer to Centerville High School next year, without his parents paying private school tuition, but he'd probably like that anyways.

f)Chanel will also probably transfer to public school next year, since she's only in private school because she thought she'd get less bullying there, and that turned out not to be true.

Yea, it's probably not going to happen like I just described. No matter how abusive Rudy's parents are, the reality is it could take a long time for them to lose custody of Rudy, and there are plenty of terrible things that could happen in the mean time.

Of course, another possibility is that the Strongwell parents never quite cross the line where it's dangerous for Rudy and Maria to stay at home, and so they just continue to suffer with bad parents for the rest of the story.

Seems like a lucky accident that Rudy forgot the boy-love manga in the bathroom, probably would have made things all the worse.

Honestly, people like their parents need the shit kicked out of them and if that doesn't get them to straighten up then we should start removing them from society.

It seems like Ana's still there. I'm guessing she's going to ask about Ruby. Although, she'll probably wait until she's alone with Rudy to do so.

Well that's exactly what I thought had happened. On the bright side they reacted to Rubyless severely than I had expected

The fact that they're in school seems like a bad sign to me. Like their punishment is yet to come, but Mr. Strongwell just hasn't figured out what he's going to do yet. There is no way he saw all this and just sent them off to school.

I was worried last page that this is what happened, that their parents got home before Ruby. And I'm worried there's more to come from Mr. Stockwell. Especially if he sees any ads for conversion therapy or such.
