This. Becky has such a hardon for hating moms, that Pink's reverse character development was completely unintentional. She went full Madonna-Whore complex with Pink, tearing her down to the point that everyone hates her and wants to forget her. If it was intentional, Steven would have came to a conclusion that his mom wasnt perfect, but still a good person who went through a lot of the same shit he did: tyrannical diamonds, a war, destructive diamond powers, leaving home to find a new life. Fuck, you'd think murder and attempted murder would humble him since his mom never did that at her worst.
He came to forgive and understand Greg who was neglectful of his son's needs for almost 20 years, and for running away from a stable family. He came to no conclusion about Rose, and is just happy to keep her out of sight and mind from everyone, since he owns that giant portrait of her that's sitting in a storage bin only he can access.
I thought all the heavy references to Pink since the movie would lead somewhere. But it didnt. The character billed as extremely compassionate, understanding and empathetic, could forgive literal space Nazis, but not his mom. The simplest satisfying conclusion would have Steven understand where both his parents came from and how that influenced their decisions later in life, Maybe even be happy that he doesnt have to hold his mom as a messianic figurer anymore and be happy that he has a lot in common with his parents than he realized.>but Sugar doesnt hate moms, Steven loves Pearl and Garnet
All of his caretakers, including Greg, acted like roommates instead of parents, and gave Steven complete freedom to do whatever he wanted. You can count on one hand how many times any of them put their foot down and actually parented Steven. If Rose was still alive, she would have been the stricter parent, as she went through more emotional growth than Greg who still acts like a 40-year-old teenager.
