Why she might be annoying
She was hospitalized in a psychiatric institution following a series of suicide attempts.
She married John Wojtowicz before she underwent gender reassignment surgery (1971).
Wojtowicz attempted to rob a bank to pay for her sex change (August 22, 1972).
After Wojtowicz paid for her sex change with the money he got selling the movie rights to his story, she legally married another man. (Ingrate!)
Why she might not be annoying
Their drag wedding was attended by her father and Wojtowicz's mother.
She was threatened with being kept in a mental hospital until she was 'cured' of her gender identity issues.
She was unaware of Wojtowicz's robbery plans.
