Well, I had considered giving mother the benefit of the doubt but she seems to be as big of an arse as dad. Question is how Stephanie made it out of their loving/caring parentage with as open a mind as she did. =P
@David: Stephanie is young and naive and can't really understand all of this hatred. I think she has a really good heart - if you remember, Alex wasn't very nice to her a while ago, but she forgave her. Still... This is really something bigger than the two girls.
