I felt his transphobia wasn't really transphobia and more him just being pissed at Roxie and trying to hide it.TH4NK YOU B3N wrote: ↑Sun Jan 12, 2020 7:49 pmI think his transphobia does count as an example of him being vulnerable.
If were allowed to look into Jade's mind, we'd likely see thoughts that have similar levels of transphobia to those of Dirk. However, since Dirk is letting her keep those to herself, we don't judge her the same way as we judge him.Jade looks at where her hands are folded in her lap. Bites her lip. She has her own concerns about this, her own thoughts. Reasonable thoughts, I’d say. But I’ll refrain from any further comment. I’m staying away from this subject, from now on.
Out of his four friends he probably is closest to Roxie. They grew up in the same situation, trying to survive on a ruined earth. They both have 'parents' that are long dead in the past figures they attached themselves to.
Then we go back to the Prologue, presumably being narrated by Dirk still, and what we thought was John wondering about what was going on in Roxie's head. While yea John wouldn't have any damn clue what she's thinking, DIRK doesn't know what she is thinking. And when he learns that Roxie had this whole gender nonbinary thing going on in their head the entire time, he probably got soooo fucking pissed.
In part cause he is a controlling asshole, and in part he can't do ANYTHING with Roxie because of it. It may well have been he wanted them to come with him. That or be his enemy but i imagine he wanted to bring his oldest friend with him. But they just have to be impossible for him to get into the headspace of, to even properly Narrate. Far as we know not even Calliope can properly narrate Roxie and has to do so indirectly.
When Dirk is in control, Roxie is the only one safe from him.
So its very possible he is just really upset when it comes to Roxie in general and is just fuming. in a sense they revealing they are nonbinary, and probably the situation we ended on when Roxie was experimenting with being a boy, just shows how little her truly understood Roxie, and emphasizing his lack of power over her. And more so, the isolation it has created, cause he cannot connect with his oldest friend in any way now.
Basically the whole nonbinary reveal for Roxie was blunt an clumsy and kinda lacked foreshadowing, because Dirk couldn't foreshadow it and had no more idea than the audience. Both shows Roxie's reveal and that they are immune to Dirk.
