A Character From NBC's 'Good Girls' Just Came Out As Trans In A Truly Powerful TV Moment

In a wonderful example of how coming out can go right, Good Girls character Sadie (Isaiah Stannard) came out to his mom after finding out his baby brother had been born.

After Sadie's mom Annie (Mae Whitman) assists her ex-husband's new wife, Nancy (Sally Pressman) with delivering her baby, she goes upstairs to check on Sadie.

After uttering the phrase "it's a boy," Annie goes to leave the room to take a shower but Sadie stops her.

After a poignant pause, Sadie says:

"So am I."

Annie's reaction is what has Twitter feeling all emotional. She pauses for a beat and begins to smile, then gives Sadie a hug.

There's no tears, or questions of "are you sure?" or "why would you do this to me?" that are all-too-common in other coming out portrayals. Just unconditional love and acceptance.

Good Girls tells the story of a trio of suburban moms who hold up a local grocery store after life leaves them little other option. The show follows them as they deal with the fallout of their crime, and the effect it has on their relationships.

There was, understandably, quite an emotional response to the episode on Twitter.

The visible (and oh-so-positive) representation of trans guys on television meant a lot to folks.

As GLAAD points out, this is the kind of loving response every child deserves.

Unfortunately, that isn't the reality for many trans folks.

Trans representation in media is nearly non-existant, especially for transmasculine folks.

If there is a trans character in a show or film, they are almost always played by a cisgender actor.

Sadie, a transmasculine character, being played by a transmasculine actor, Isaiah Stannard, is an amazing step forward for the entertainment industry.

It's an exciting step for many.

Isaiah posted to Instagram to thank fans for watching, and for their supportive comments.

If you haven't checked out Good Girls yet, you can watch it Sundays at 10 p.m. eastern on NBC.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
