Obviously, what Devon is saying is completely horrible, and yet in his mind, it’s all just friendly banter. These kinds of pages never really get easier to write. Rudy seems to be good at playing along with situations like this (I guess you could say he’s a good actor), but is it the right thing to do?

On a lighter note - just ‘cause I’ve been talking fashion lately - I wanted to draw attention to what the boys are wearing. Honestly, there’s little to report on Devon. I just seem him as the type to always be very casual, even on a date. I can imagine Holly giving him an earful about that, but it’s just not his style. Rudy finds himself in a blue button down. This particular design came to me on account of a fanart someone had drawn depicting him in a blue button down. I went with a darker shade, but I have the artist to thank for Rudy’s design in this chapter. ^_^

Staying silent was probably the right choice. Wouldn't want to spoil the date with a heated argument right off the bat.

I wonder if Devon and Rudy had a similar conversation to holly's

If this conversation is anything to go on, Devon was probably raised in a pretty closed-minded family. I don't think he's had much exposure to homosexuality and, since he's at a Christian school, he's probably been taught it's a sin and 100% wrong.

An ironic subnote: my mother also attended a Christian high school (which also functioned as a boarding school for out-of-state students). According to her, there were lesbians there and no one really thought much about it. Wonder when the opinions changed so drastically?

@ Nightsky
It's not so much that opinions have changed, but I have noticed an almost double standard when it comes to male vs female sexuality. Male sexuality is rigidly enforced because of social pressures and certain Biblical passages (at least in the Judeo-Christian West). The concept of female sexuality is largely ignored in both the Bible and society at is almost a given assumption that females will simply submit to their "masters" (ie males) at the appropriate time, so little regard is paid to female desires.
Please no point does this poster conflate male with "man" and female with "woman". This poster firmly believes that while "Male" and "Female" are largely intrinsic, they have nothing to do with "Man" and "Woman", which are purely social constructs.
This poster is also an MtF and has had much experience attempting to make that distinction over the years and largely gave up.
