    In the new season of Degrassi they killed off Adam the female to boy transgender student. Through this character we see a bit of how confusing and difficult it is to be a transgender student. I did understand this was probobly a one time gimmick to make the point but I loved this character. Not that I am gay or transgender myself but why did they have to Kill Adam? I mean that's a horrible way to end the character. Even if they did want to get them off the show! Anyone else really upset they got rid of Adam?

    Because the actress was leaving and they wanted to do something more dramatic than transferring Adam to private school. (which is the go-to explanation most of the time.)
