It's indeed very sad that a show like this, filmed where it is, isn't using one of the very many young men with transsexual back grounds to play this character.
Toronto has one of North America's largest communities of people living with transsexualism and people who are transgender not to mention various types of support groups.

I also hope the writers know enough about distinguishing between the umbrella term transgender and the direct term transsexual so that those of us who do educational workshops don't find ourselves having to undue the confusion.

I hate Degrassi! The girls are supposed to be teenagers but all look about 28!! Also, they are just high school kids but who keep having all these adult problems, mostly becasue of their own STUPID CHOICES (just like most girls' problems in real life---stupid CHOICES!) It is one of those shows that all the girls need to be told to STFU, pleassseeee!!!!
