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.

This was from Chuck Dixon's run, right?

This reads like some kind of fucked up PSA for kids and their parents; IS YOUR SON HANGING AROUND WITH GIRLS WHO HAVE HAD A CHILD... OUT OF WEDLOCK? *cue ominous thunder and scary music* ARE THEY A BAD INFLUENCE?? IS YOUR BOY STILL A VIRGIN?!?!?!

Christ (I wish I was frozen today and could've avoided reading this shit), I really wanted to believe Willingham wasn't the only one shitting on Steph in the run up to and including War Games..

Am I the only one who doesn't think its weird that Tim's parents are worried about him lying to them and hanging out with a girl already has one kid under her belt and who's father is a Supervillain?

...and here I thought Dana and Steph had a nice relationship. Didn't she help Tim make soup for her that one time Steph had a cold?

Wait, this crap and the whole wargames destruction of Stephanie was by Bill Willingham?

You know, I could handle Fables seeing as the thin that most annoyed me the most there was that unsubtle anti-abortion comment of snow white. But now? Hurgh, this is such a bad characterization coming from such a high horse point of view when those parents are being so facetious regarding their very actions.

Both. It's legitimate for parents to be concerned, their reaction isn't, and their judgement of the situation is influenced by ignorance.

Jack, the man who dresses up as a bat to exact vengeance on dangerous criminals is a better father than you ever where; take the hint.

Isn't it supposed to be Dana? Dinah Drake if I remember correctly wears a lot more spandex. ;)

This is so wrong, but I can't help getting a slight satisfaction from watching parents freak out over their son's Precious Untouched Purity for a change.

Although the overt classism and slut-shaming is kind of taking the edge off the fun.

I don't think they are entirely unreasonable here. Sure, they shouldn't be going through Tim's stuff, but when your kid comes home with bruises and you know he's lying - then yes, your thoughts might go to the girlfriend. And then you tend to look at things in a different light. "She was so responsible in giving up her child" goes to "Oh my god, she had a child while she was a teenager, what else might (unwittingly or not) happen." As the mother notes, Steph is worldly, Tim's not.
