Sooooo... what the heck is Gavin up to?

Is this the smoothest thing he's ever done, or the dumbest? XD

Gavin is a pretty good guy. I'm glad he's gotten good at reading the room and just being a nice person.

Gavin is Best Boi

reply

I remember in 1 of the previous chapters when Rudy was texting Colette while him and Gavin were hanging out, Gavin was jokingly teasing Rudy about texting a "girl" and realized from how Rudy reacted that it was possible that the person Rudy was texting (who Gavin saw was Colette from the contact name) could've been a trans guy.

Since he knows that Colette is actually a guy and sees who Colette is, I think he's trying to make up for thinking Colette was a girl at first. Gavin's definitely grown as a person majorly, he went from being lowkey transphobic to probably one of the best allies ever.

Gavin does dumb things, but he's also grown and can read people better, so even though he doesn't understand dysphoria himself, he can tell that Colette is likely uncomfortable and probably hopes that offering his blazer to him might at least make Colette feel a bit better.

Let's hope Colette takes this well ^-^

You know, I'm not entirely sure it's that Gavin was transphobic as so much as "wait, you're a girl now? Uh....".

@glmdgrielson: I can say from experience that being okay with trans people and seeing someone you know come out as trans are entirely different experiences, and your reaction can even surprise yourself.

But...

But if Colette equips Gavin's blazer... who will wear Colette's dress?

Sorry, I think I took the joke a step too far XD

Gavin is the contrary of grossed out when he sees Rudy in Ruby mode. Also, he is really smooth. It's no wonder he and Ana get along so well.

I'm personally really touched that Gavin (a) noticed Collette was upset (b) put the pieces together without drawing attention to it or confronting anyone and (c) offered Colette a solution with subtlety and plausible deniability
I'm just concerned that if Colette realizes that Gavin has guessed he's trans, Colette will be second guessing his ability to remain under the radar or Rudy's trustworthiness or both, and I hope if it comes to that, that it doesn't ruin any friendships

That was a smooth move on Gavin's side! I figure he's finally put two and two together upon hearing he was Rudy's friend Colette.

He Who Abides

reply

@SammyGems - Gavin was not transphobic. If anything, he seemed more down on himself for being (in his mind) a bad enough friend to "Ryan" (in quotes because deadname) that his friend wouldn't talk to him about something that important. Sure, he didn't understand most of Rain's situation (and assuredly still doesn't get all of it), but his actions in the first few chapters always read to me that he blamed himself for being a "terrible friend".

So Gavin has pieced all the clues together and has decided to be the super affirming ally we always knew he would be for yet another person.

Hm... I wonder if Gavin is trying to sort of help Colette's dysphoria lessen by offering his blazer, which is typically seen as a piece of masculine clothing.

Quite possible. Just hope it doesn't backfire from the stereotype of guys offering girls their coats....
