Agreed. The other characters keep treating her like a stupid child, and she manages to keep on and survive. The same with when she was in the Colonies (Janine has survived WAY worse shit than you, June) and Emily thought she was stupid to find beauty in the women's lives. Yet that ability to find beauty and joy probably helped them survive longer than they would have otherwise.
I wonder if they'll ever mention her son who died (it was implied, in the first season, that he died fighting for the U.S.).
