Introduction

Unfortunately, a few problems arise when Pinky's future in law spot Jess and Jules on the pavement laughing together in public. Pinky's futures in law observe the wrongs thoughts in their heads as they assume the shorthaired Jules was a male. They also thought Jess was in a relationship with a white male. On the other end, Jules's mom thinks that Jules is lesbian, falling in love with a girl. Wrong thoughts like these shape the character and due to what Pinky's future in law saw as a result they turned down the wedding.
