Sure. Learning how to order a venti coffee instead of large coffee at Starbucks would be confounding.

But understanding the need for revenge or that people can act irrationally because of jealousy are things people learn no matter what their cultural differences are. She wouldn't need Trevor or anyone else to hold her hand to understand it.

When people say "ways of man" like stuff. It makes it seem like WW doesn't understand human emotions/reactions cause she's from the planet Omicron Persei 8.
No, but she is from a society with a VERY antiquated code of conduct. And she's spent her entire life learning only the Amazon women's version of that realm of human behavior. There's A LOT about our world she will no doubt find a little difficult to wrap her head around - from the justice system to American politics to the contemporary social constructs between men and women to race relations to entertainment to consumer culture to modern parenting to technological dependence to...well, you get the idea. She can adapt and survive in our world on her own, sure. But it seems like Trevor's role would be to change her outlook towards it and help her to actually appreciate it for what it is, rather than judge it based on her literally ancient point-of-view.


"They say: sufferings are misfortunes...Once we're thrown off our habitual paths, we think all is lost; but it's only here that the new and good begins.

As long as there's life, there's happiness. There's much, much still to come."
