* UnfortunateImplications: It has been a point of contention that Degrassi does not handle race issues very well, exacerbated by the fact that many of the show's black characters don't have much in the way of plot and importance. [[http://missandrealewis.com/2013/03/28/new-post-a-real-conversation-about-degrassi-tbt/ This was actually addressed by Andrea Lewis]] (who played Hazel), that she kept asking for more time and storylines on the show but was always shut down. This was ''finally'' addressed later when they tackled police brutality again young black men in season 13 and in ''Next Class'' where Shay and Tiny were featured front and center and tackled racism again, focusing on white privilege.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: [[http://www.commonsensemedia.org/tv-reviews/degrassi At least not for young kids.]] Of course, that doesn't stop a lot of adults from thinking that.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: [[http://www.commonsensemedia.org/tv-reviews/degrassi Degrassi slides between this, and WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids. At least not for young kids.]] Of course, it's core, it an educational show that doesn't stop aims to portray teen issues in a lot realistic way. So it can be considered a kids show (particularly with the older seasons). However, as time went on and the audience aged with the show, Degrassi started tackling harder issues complete with some eyebrow-raising moments. One episode would be about your basic slice of adults from thinking that.life high school issues and the other episode would be about a gay character considering having sex with older men for money to deal with his crippling loneliness. It didn't help that the show aired on a Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} network in the US. Once DegrassiNextClass started on Creator/{{Netflix}}, the show is now firmly in the TV-14 realm without a kids network's radar to deal with and celebrated with two implied gay/lesbian sex scenes.[[note]]Though a lesbian sex scene was also implied when the show aired on [=TeenNick=], so yes this show slides between those two tropes...[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Most people dropped the Zoe/Miles and Zoe/Zig ships when she [[spoiler: firmly came out as gay]] in #OMFG.


Added DiffLines:

* AssPull: Most fans' reactions to Grace [[spoiler: pretending to be gay for Zoe]], considering that for most of their time before that they were ''very'' close to each other and seemed to be essentially an official couple.

Added DiffLines:

** Terri is a straighter example, especially in the first season. She's not that big, but the rest of the girls in the cast are pretty tiny.

* EpilepticTrees: When TeenNick's promotional machine cranks for new seasons and spills ''just enough'' information to get fans riled up and leading to this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnxQaFgLcRA The carnival promo]] for season 10 is just ''made'' of this.

* ShipToShipCombat: Still very present in the fandom, but nothing can compare to the Great Shipping War that took place during season 3 and didn't end until ''season 8.'' Namely, there were five people involved in four parings: Craig/Ashely, Craig/Manny, Sean/Emma, Sean/Ellie, and Craig/Ellie. With the constant back and forth between the characters in question, the ShipTease, and {{Romantic Plot Tumor}}s the show put out, the war spanned forums, YouTube, the official {{TeenNick}} boards, LiveJournal, and couple specific fansites. Which makes it even more unreal (or pretty damn realistic) that absolutely ''none of the parings in question'' made it to OfficialCouple status.

Added DiffLines:

** Then there's a character like Miles, who has the benefit of being bisexual and who has dated most of the female cast and part of the gay male cast.


Added DiffLines:

** Because the LoveDodecahedron of the newer seasons expanded, the fandom can be regularly divided up into Maya/Zig vs Maya/Miles vs Miles/Tristan vs Zoe/Zig vs Zoe/Miles vs Grace/Zoe.

** To be honest, it was pretty unrealistic to assume that Spinner would receive no consequences for his confession. Jimmy's accusations of Skinner only telling the truth to benefit himself may have been untrue and harsh, but considering that he ended up paralyzed and depressed over his inability to play basketball thanks to Spinner, it was understandable. The moral can be chalked up to the home truth that confessing to something awful will cause you to face the harsh, but well-earned consequences of your actions.
