    No insults? Either Dakota is mellowing or she’s gotten resigned to Phoebe’s strangeness.

    Dakota’s reaction reminds me of a doc in an old WB cartoon.

    Bugs bunny was reading the entire eye chart— all the way down to the little manufacturer’s label at the bottom. The ophthalmologist took a magnifying glass and read it. Then looked and said “uh… yeah…”

    Maybe she made a New Years resolution: if you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing.

    I hope we will see that cute little girl who accused Phoebe of stealing her ball.

    I see the snow melted faster than Dakota’s attitude.

    I can almost hear Dakot’s thoughts in panel 3:

    “Friend Chart? Frenemy? Check IN? Walk away, girl…just waaaaalk away.”

    I think I’m on Dakotas side on this one.
    Friends are friends. Period.

    “Whatever” Dakota said.

    As a straight male adult, I find it all rather strange, but I know plenty of teenage girls who obsess over the Periodic Table of Relationships, and I’ve heard that gay teenage boys do the same, at least in hothouse environments like British boarding schools. (And I remember Dorothy L. Sayers remarking at one point how strange it was that men would be friends with other men even when they had only one thing in common.)

    re: JWK
    It’s an interesting bit of female psychology that most women are into comparing. Comparing their looks with other girls, comparing men, comparing incomes, comparing clothes, etc. It’s like they are trying to find their spot in the universe.
    A good example of that is the “trophy effect”. It’s been very common in the U.S. for at least 30 years for a boy in high school or a man in college to be turned down for dates because he’s not dating anyone. Then, when he does start dating a woman, the other women suddenly are interested. The guy has not changed, but the women’s interest in him has been kindled by another woman’s interest in him.
    Unfortunately, it’s not a very good scene in U.S. schools with large LGBT populations. Essentially, school districts have created hostile environments to learning where LGBT students are permitted to endlessly pursue without restraint those who are not interested in them or their chosen lifestyles. A recent death where a male student adamantly wouldn’t stop hitting on other boys— and the school district did nothing to enforce sexual harassment laws against the student— was an extreme example. I don’t think the schools realized what a can of worms they would open when the NEA (National Education Association) started campaigning for K-12 students to adopt alternative lifestyles in the late 1990s. It certainly wasn’t in the kids’ interest for schools to try to force students into alternatives.
