She had no problem calling out that other friend's brother for pronoun usage or pointing it out after Noelle's electrolysis appointment. As for dating on the dark, obvious total staged event.
First, these are 16 year olds, and second, just Jazz and Noelle and two random girls?
Jeanette: "Jazz gets nervous in large crowds, especially when people recognize her and approach her. That she is conflicted between awareness of the unique opportunity for advocacy her fame gives her, she needs time to recharge her jets too. I love to socialize, but if I don't have "down time" alone, I feel panicky and suffocated.
Once Jazz had a few minutes away from the crowd, she was fine. I think her father is a great deal more aware of trying to find this balance than her mother is. I really thought they would have a couch interview/talking heads with Ari in relation to the bottom surgery scene, but instead they used the brothers? From what I know the Dating in the Dark scene was shot just for this episode.
(For what it's worth, this makes him the most attractive man on TV, IMHO.) I think Jeannette was speaking clunkily about Jazz "wanting her privacy." I think she meant "down time", and since Jeannette is so bound and determined that Jazz be a social butterfly when she really doesn't want to be, she's taking the fame as an "acceptable substitute" when people approach her. She is so strong and so courageous, far beyond her years. Not in Florida: "Florida's age of consent is 18, though the law contains a provision allowing 16- and 17-year-olds to consent to having sex with someone age 16 to 23." I'm not sure if this episode had enough of a storyline hook to keep viewers interested. The gross dumb guy in the camo was also cast as "guy Jazz won't like" wears camo, high school drop out, has no hobbies.
What she needs to seek out is the LGBQT society on campus as her point of reference to refer her to more open minded sorority house. You would think this would be all the parents would have to point out to her that therapy could help in these situations to alleviate it or give skills to alleviate it (if not medication to take as needed in these situations) From what I know the Dating in the Dark scene was shot just for this episode.
I'm sure Jazz date guy was a plant, but she doesn't know how to talk to people and was rude with the people she talked to on the 'date'.
Noelle is very sweet but this is not the right venue for her either.
The 19 year old was an obvious plant, and hello, illegal!
I can see how the Pride crowd would be overwhelming, but it seemed Jeanette added to that.
