And I think she's absolutely right. Calling it the school for Gifted Youngster may have helped many young mutants who felt unsure of themselves or bad for being a mutant, but ultimately they're all just people, before anything else, and when dealing with co-existence that's what you've got to remember.

Does she even have much of a point? Wouldn't at least Professor X basically agree that we're all people and it would be better if we all respected each other for our different gifts (but impatiently telling people that doesn't make it so)? Not only does she dismiss the past as barely relevent (having happened before she was there) but she isn't even aware that humans call their own children "gifted" in schools? The sanctimoniousness seems to be more of a point than the point.

Exactly. Second Coming was a whole 2 months ago, apparently, and she might well not have picked that up in the dystopian future she was brought up in.
