Ignorance is the only option, Part Thirteen: The Normality Aversion Factor

To slog onward from last time, it's all kinds of obvious why April wasn't told to give her head a shake and stop acting like a melodramatic turd barking about the bullshit war Becky isn't waging against her: her parents are case studies in abnormal psychology who pass their pathology off as being normal. Since April doesn't know how normal people behave, she reacted to Becky's wanting to take the lead she deserved to because she's more talented and a more forceful personality than a wispy idiot gloomily thought-bubbling about how no one likes her really by standing around baying at the moon about war and treason and garbage because her parents encouraged her envy.

This brings us merrily back to our current problem in which Mike wants to have a secret girlfriend. Martha probably still thinks that he was an oblivious hypocrite who wanted her to dump her friends because they might embarrass him while keeping his friends to keep from getting teased. What she reckons without is that he was afraid that random strangers would know that he had a strong opinion about a subject because it would get back to Elly and she'd just start screaming at him. If no one knows what he feels about someone, his parents can't kill him for having an opinion.
