Do newly arrived Shadowkinds from Urban Arcana count as a subversion? While their behavior will likely seem odd to modern-day people, it does make sense from their frame of reference (namely coming from a Standard Fantasy Setting where Everything Is Trying to Kill You) and since they end up dimensionally displaced they are technically homeless until they get a normal (or not so normal) job so they're not exactly crazy even if they seem like it to Muggles?

Should there be a section— even under the Analysis tab— about the deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill, particularly under the Reagan administration, which coupled with cuts to other social services put a lot of genuinely troubled people on the street and doubtlessly contributed to the rise of this trope above and beyond being Acceptable Targets?
