Following the previous post about Tim Drake's father essentially black mailling him into not being Robin any more by threatening to report Bruce to the police, I thought that I should post a page from Jack and Tim's stepmum's search through Tim's personal things to see why Tim has been lying to them about getting injuries from school sports...

Legitimate parental concern, or upper middle class snobbery in action, you be the judge!

Also, nice implict comments regarding Steph there Dinah who isn't Black Canary.

I don't know. Didn't they start discovering Tim's bruises and stuff around the same time he and Steph started dating? If she was (in their eyes,) the only new thing in his life, I think it'd make sense that they'd worry about her being behind the bruises.

Then again, not really changing the fact that Jack is not exactly a shining example of fatherhood.

It still seems really bullshitty and in keeping with the crap Willingham later dumped on Steph, to me - I mean, sure, it's perfectly plausible that a girl could be beating up on Tim, but that's the first conclusion to jump to? Not that Tim could be, I don't know, being bullied or something along those lines?

And the setup here doesn't help at all. They go from 'Tim's hiding stuff' to 'that girl had a baby out of marriage and is clearly a bad influence!!!' in the space of a panel. I mean, yes, it would be shocking if someone as young as Stephanie had a baby, but they aren't in full possession of the facts, and as such, it's disgustingly judgemental and piles assumption after assumption onto Steph like she's got a history of rape, murder and thievery.

Again, to me it reads like some sort of shitty, fucked up PSA that plays with Willingham's political stances, and the 'Do you think Tim's still a virgin' is just the icing on the cake; Willingham runs a veritable gauntlet of bullshit, here; Teenagers hiding things from their parents is BAD (even though we ALL did it, and we all know our parents did too). Kids out of wedlock? BAD. Not a virgin? BAD.

I was thinking less "Steph is beating up Tim" and more "the guy who got Steph pregnant is beating up Tim."

Well, that isn't how 'maybe they're worried about her being behind the bruises' reads.
