At 1:04:11, Zach’s little brother Peyton says “I’m kind of a Frankie fan.”
He had to interject to get that in, right after his mom was going on about Nicole and Donny and saying that she doesn’t like anyone else in the house.
Good for him! Have your own opinions! Speak for yourself!
This gives me hope that if Jill is as homophobic as she seems to be on twitter, and Zach ever has to hide any part of himself in order to not get the kind of dismissal from his mom that I get from mine (every single time I try to explain to her that yes I’m bi and yes it’s real and no it’s not this stereotype or that stereotype and no my orientation doesn’t change to straight every time I date a guy ffs), then at least perhaps he will have a little brother who will not get on board with his mom and follow everything his mom says.
If at ten years old, he can be on a live broadcast like this going out to who knows HOW many viewers, and state his opinion opposite of his mom’s, with his mom sitting next to him looking a bit displeased that he said it (I think… check it out), then I bet he can hold his own just fine and think for himself if his brother ever has any reason to confess to him that he is anything not 100% straight, if that is ever something that is an important part of him that would make him feel like he could lose the love and respect of his little brother over.
Of course I hope Zach’s mom is not as rigid and non-accepting as she’s appeared to be, and would actually support Zach in anything. You really can’t tell entirely, from the way someone handles social media they’re not used to.
I applaud Peyton soooo much for this & we know how much he loves Ariana too. *claps*. This is lowkey what I talked about in that text post I did a few days ago when I said I feel Zach doesn’t feel “judgement” in the outside world from his “broski” but faces judgement from everyone else. I think it was so refreshing for Zach to also hear how Frankie’s grandpa was so accepting of who he (Frankie) is as a person and when Zach told Frankie it made him breakdown (cry) when he heard it…it spoke volumes to me as an LGBT person.
