Yeah and that annoys me. Here's the thing I know a lot of kids have problems with their parents and the X-Men, and the Xavier Academy are an escapist fantasy not only for those that feel separate but also those that would love to get away from opressive parents... but I had a good relationship with my parents... and the complete lack of 'human' parents that loved and supported their mutant children bothered me.
I mean there were a handful but they always were just fluff backstory. None made an effort to move to Manchester, New York to keep their families together while their child attended the institiute. No teacher parents with a mutant kid tried to become teachers at the school (I mean do you really need one of the x-men to teach College Algebra?).
The school has always been segregated, isolationist, and militant... it always bothered me, and now things like this and the Northstar story are not just bugging me but moving into the straight up dislike (I wont say hate... at this point I don't care enough about the X-books to hate).
Magneto was right in Nation X #1, he won, the dream of peaceful mutant/human co-existance is dead. The X-Men are just as much to blame given their policies and attitude.
Still I have some hope, I mean most of the New X-Men were happy to see Jubilee, Northstar wants so badly to make his relationship work. Maybe things will get better... maybe.
