Yes and no? We were supposed to like Sophia’s character so we sympathized with Sophia when his wife and child inevitably called him out on his selfishness. We were supposed to empathize with the pain of choosing between risking losing his family by finally being his “true self” and living a lie. Yes his wife & son were portrayed as sympathetic characters too but I really felt we were supposed to like Sophia and understand he did what he had to do by transitioning at all costs.
