I just watched the first 1.5 episodes of season 3 of The Umbrella Academy. The way they show her transition is really scary and the way the other characters react is too. Presumably, this is how they think people should react?
The first episode doesn't say anything about it. About 5 minutes into the second, there is a scene where Vanya is looking for extracts about the women from the past in newspapers. We see flashbacks of the past including Sissy saying something like "You don't even notice the box that you're in til someone lets you out." Soon after, we see her getting a haircut
We then see her talking to 3 of her brothers and one of them makes a comment about her hair. She then tells them about meeting with one of the Sparrow family in the previous episode and they ask her something addressing her as Vanya. She says "It's uh Viktor." One of them says after a slightly awkward pause "who's Viktor?" She says "I am, it's who I've always been" and after another awkward pause, she says "Uh, is that an issue for anyone?" Obviously, they say this is fine, and accept this no questions asked like obedient sheep.
So this is how we're supposed to react if someone comes out as trans, don't question it at all. It just adds to this belief that anyone who expresses any suggestion of being trans is trans. Also to TiPs who watch this that if their family doesn't react like this then they are bigots. It is just going to push these people further away from their parents who are not reacting in the way TRA would like. And it's also scary how seemingly she just literally realized this same day and now she knows she is trans 100% no questions asked
Later in the episode, she tells Allison. We don't actually see her telling Allison. but we see their conversation immediately after. Allison says things like "why didn't you tell me sooner, I can't believe I never realized, I feel like such an asshole." Because obviously this is what you are thinking after a sibling comes out as trans. Vanya/Viktor says "you couldn't have known as I didn't fully...She opened something in me. Showed me I'd never be free hiding from who I really am...I just can't live in that box anymore"
Even more scarily she says "you know I always hated mirrors, I thought everyone felt so strange in their skin. I guess that's not true right?" How can the producers not see the problem with this? She is literally saying that if you hate looking at yourself in the mirror and feel insecure about your body, this means you're trans? How can they not see how this could affect an insecure teenager? So many people don't like looking at themselves in the mirror
Allison now asks: "What do you see now?" Vanya/Viktor says "Me. Just me." At this point, she's (in the show at least) literally just had a haircut. You can tell throughout even in the first episode that she's on testosterone but they don't want you to think that and in the show, she's just had a haircut. Now she is suddenly okay with her body just with a haircut which is just crazy. Allison now is completely accepting and says something like "Thanks for trusting me with this...there's nothing that would make me love you less." At this point, I just stopped watching I was just somewhat curious as to how bad it was going to be.
