I remember when I first read this line I really felt her anger here. I felt the injustice, that Griffin and Milo get second chances at life while Hailey is 16 forever. Sure, Milo is squandering his second chance, but at least he has the opportunity.
Her transphobia is concerning. We also see from Milo how the punitive justice system doesn't do much to rehabilitate people. She's likely advocating for something that will make the justice system even worse than it already is.

I love (hate personally, but love narrativelly) how Claire frames Milo as *one of the killers* of her sister, and seems to hold the exact same level of hatred for both him and Griffin, even though...Griffin was *the actual murderer*. Whether Milo is there or nor wouldn't change the fact that Haylie died at the hands of Griffin.

And yet, both Claire and many commenters give Griffin and Milo's actions the same weight, when even according to the law it just wasn't Like That.
It's an...understandable reaction on Claire's part, mind you, but still a logical leap.

Just something I found interesting

Some older comments on other pages mentioned her possibly being influenced by Reddit like spaces and TERFs. I have to wonder if she wandered into some spaces for women/younger girls effected by violent crimes, ran into some radical feminists there that started with genuinely supportive/informative statements about women being hurt by men like Griffin, and then they suddenly veered off into tirades about how dangerous trans people are when Claire happened to mention Milo was involved.

Blaming both of them equally can just be a normal conclusion Claire came through, but I can also see TERFs giving her an idea that Milo was only being let off easy/being labeled as an accomplice instead of a direct perpetrator because of the “liberal media” favoring trans people. That might not be it at all and her misgendering can just be an extension of her hard on crime stance leading her into conservative circles, but I think it might also be possible that Milo could’ve been let of easy because of who he is not not because what he actually did. I don’t think she would ever directly say it that clearly but I think the anger and grief that could arise from someone saying “well Milo wasn’t as guilty” when talking about something as intense as her dead sister could make her go “what do you mean? My sister is dead and you’re splitting hairs?” And then she kind of reaches this muddled conclusion.

@T worth mentioning that Griffin is also trans and, as far as this page at least, the jury is out as to whether or not Claire knows Milo is trans. Also worth noting that Griffin was the only one of the two who was out as trans at the time of the trial.
