Degrassi, I’m confused!

You have a girl playing a boy on the show.  Why?

This is "Adam."

Adam is being played by a girl named Jordan*.  During the previews, I was so hoping that this character would be Degrassi’s first lesbian.  I mean, being a tomboy, even… would be more acceptable.  But a girl playing a boy?  What is this?  Peter Pan?  Mary Martin?

*After looking on Wiki, I’ve discovered that this character is actually TRANSGENDER.  Way to go, Degrassi.  Progressive!
