*names handful of actors of colour who are also famous*
I’m gonna go play the sims and vote for Klaine on my PCA app.
Love you guys!
Was wondering when this would come to me.
Hey, everyone, once again, we are being entitled and whiny shippers. Lovely.
We don’t like the double standard (oh right you hate those two words, well you’re gonna hear them here) and we really don’t like it when it’s shoved in our faces, which is definitely in that performance.
I seriously don’t get how people don’t understand this. So called double standard? It’s not so called.
It’s right fucking there.
I don’t care that this is an AU episode where Kurt and Blaine aren’t together.
I don’t even care that this is an AU episode. As far as I’m concerned, since it’s AU, it really doesn’t exist and Glee went on Hiatus after Puppet Master.
But the point is, it’s airing tonight, and this is going to be shown, and this shit needs to be said.
Throughout this season(and prior seasons before), we keep getting shown shit like this. Where Blaine can have someone ‘twerk’ with him, or he can ‘twerk’ right into someone else’s personal space, or sling his arm around someone else, or have someone else slap his ass… and now with Kurt, we have some drunken fun singing, where Kurt gets to be all drunken fun and flirty with some random guy. He gets to touch him, and be all drunken flirty with him.
Where when he’s in a scene with Blaine, the guy he’s engaged to, there’s always physical distance (the only time they are in each other’s personal space is for SPECIAL MOMENTS) , or the most we get is a hug combined with a back rub. We got a couple kisses in the first episode, and that was it. We get little throwaway lines, little bit of suggestive innuendo, but other than that- nada. Zip. Zilch. We get cut kisses, or kisses edited out of scenes (Love Shack performance, and also in another episode from season 3 and actually in Movin’ Out too.)
Hell even Dantana fans are getting nothing but crap for their ship, because there’ll be no Dantana in this episode, and Demi will be leaving the show soon so Dantana will most likely be ended with a parting line and that’s that. No thought given to Dantana, just like no thought given to Klaine. And they only got ONE damn kiss in their ship so far. HELL IF I WAS A DANTANA SHIPPER I WOULD BE PISSED BUT I ONLY HAVE ROOM EMOTIONALLY TO BE PISSED OFF ABOUT THE TREATMENT OF ONE GLEE SHIP.
YET EVERY OTHER COUPLE GETS THE PHYSICAL CASUAL INTIMACY.
YET EVERY OTHER COUPLE GETS TO BE IN EACH OTHERS PERSONAL SPACE.
YET EVEN FRIENDSHIPS GET ROMANTIC UNDERTONES AND BETTER TREATMENT THAN THE CANON GAY/LESBIAN COUPLES.
YET EVERY OTHER COUPLE DOESN’T HAVE TO LIVE OFF OF THROWAWAY COMMENTS, INNUENDO, OR PHONE CALLS, OR THE BAREST MINIMUM OF INTERACTIONS.
We all keep going on about this, I know. But when it’s so evident, when the double standard is right there in our face, when the episode is even an AU, and Kurt can get all fun touching and drunken flirty with a random guy we will never see again and then when he’s in a scene with Blaine he’s either being loving from a distance, cheering him on, or in a heart to heat scene he just fucking HUGS him….
Oh god, the anger it generates is just a lot.
When Kurt and Blaine can be casually touchy with other people and not with each other, the double standard is there. When the conversations with their friends have more romantic undertones than their own, the double standard is there.
When they can be drunken flirty and fun as fuck with anyone else but each other, (even in AU episodes) THE DOUBLE STANDARD IS THERE.
This Chipmunks performance with random santa guy Cody, is just another example of that double standard. Kurt can get all drunkenly flirty with someone else, ANYONE ELSE, as long as he is not involved with them. As long as it’s AU and he’s not committed to someone, so the writers don’t have to worry about doing something that acknowledges Klaine. OR EVEN DANTANA.
I don’t even care if this is the only thing in the whole episode to get upset about, and if the episode is like the BEST THING IN THE FUCKING WORLD…which it won’t be anyway.
So fuck you for saying there’s no double standard.
Fuck you for saying we are being entitled and whiny.
Fuck Glee and FUCK THE GODDAMN DOUBLE STANDARD THAT JUST DOWN ON US LIKE AN ANVIL LIKE IT DOES WITH THE COYOTE IN THOSE DAMN CARTOONS. IT DOESN’T GET MORE FUCKING OBVIOUS THAN THAT PEOPLE.
