Originally Chris Colfer/Darren Criss/Klaine/Glee/Starkid/general fangirlism. Now that plus more political/ feminism stuff than I originally intended for a fandom blog. Yay.

he’s very offended at sexism against men
but when women have opinions about their own experiences, they’re definitely not thinking clearly

i’m a little offended about how much of a MAN (tm) the advertisers for the daily show and colbert report web sites think i must be. Like, it’s obnoxious how much of their ads are targeted toward the fratboy male type. (AX, rogaine, latest dudebro comedy from hollywood, sexy blond lady looking seductively into the camera to sell me beer, if i buy your product i will get all teh hawt chicks, AUGGGHGHHHH)
Like, aren’t a huge proportion of the viewers of both those shows female? Or this this just a holdover from the general audience of comedy central, which i’m sure is overwhelmingly male?
rachel bombs her nyada audition
kurt doesn’t get into nyada at all
I’m still extremely pressed that Finn referred to Kurt as his “gay step-brother” in his voiceover. Like really, after all this time, that’s all he is to you?
It’s not even that Kurt didn’t get in (well it is that, and it’s awful)
It’s that it doesn’t even matter
Exactly this. Robbing him of any real reaction just proves this plot was never about him. This whole thing is totally infuriating.
this episode was a perfect example of how the writers pretend kurt matters, but at the end of the day he’s just a well-developed prop to rachel’s storyline.

just sitting here weeping for all the kurt songs and performances that inexplicably weren’t in this episode
Pissed because an episode about gay sex got a warning but an episode about teen suicide didn’t. Fuck you Fox.
Way to show what is good, Fox.
the sad thing is, that would have been a superpowerful amazing scene with ANYONE ELSE BUT KAROFSKY
seriously the fact that kurt is blaming himself
and came to pray (the atheist!!)
because he has nowhere else to go
makes me want to set shit on fire
I have a LOT of feelings and things to say about this, so I’m waiting for later…
But omg. Glee can make me rage, but NOTHING makes me rage harder than that did. And the bar is set pretty high with this episode.
clearly glee has continuity when it’s convenient, and not other times
• because Blaine and Kurt are in an established relationship
• that by all accounts is going well
• except we never ever see this
• because glee would prefer to make Blaine sing in context-less scenes while Kurt cries over someone else
• and because your favorite character, while it’s understandable that you want to see him, is not the boyfriend/brother/father/best childhood friend of any of Glee’s established main characters
• Karofsky may have bullied Kurt, but Kurt (an established main character) owes nothing to him
• so for Karofsky fans, you are lucky that he’s coming back at all
• Yes, Kurt gets a lot of scenes and Blaine sings a lot
• but Klaine, as a couple, have been narratively marginalized this season
• hence why we are asking for Klaine to talk to each other
• that’s all we want
• a simple conversation
• one scene
• I don’t think that’s too much to ask
siggghhhh i think maybe Blaine didn’t get anything for kurt for valentine’s day because maybe HE WAS RECOVERING FROM SURGERY OR SOMETHING, not because he’s an unromantic douchebag
I could handle Kurt and Karofsky making peace, Kurt being a good person and helping Karofsky, and then everything fading out.
But Karofsky followed Kurt around anonymously. Kurt had his guard down. So much could have happened, all of which makes me sick to my stomach in a way that only Kurtofsky situations seem to be able to induce.
Can we just… consider that for a moment? The fact that the guy who harassed, sexually assaulted, physically assaulted, verbally tortured, emotionally tortured Kurt, the guy who threatened his life and drove Kurt out of his school completely crossed myriad lines once again and, were Kurt a more fragile person— as he would have every right to be—, this would have completely triggered that which he had just overcome? Were Kurt more easily triggered, this would have caused him to relive so, so much that was excruciating for us to watch the first time.
I understand Karofsky feels indebted to Kurt now, but there are boundaries. You don’t thank the person you tormented by stalking them in a gorilla suit, emotionally manipulating them, and then getting mad when they do not reciprocate your feelings. You don’t act on your romantic feelings, not after all you’ve done to them. You accept that your actions make anything more than acquaintanceship inappropriate, that you are not entitled to absolutely anything from that person, and that the fact that the person in question is so kind as to talk to you, let alone help you, after all you’ve done to them in no way erases what you’ve done or the lines that cannot be crossed.
And you sure as hell do not cross those lines.
yes. allllllll of this. and it’s made even worse so by the fact that the writers are excusing this frightening behavior by hiding it behind some sort of love~ proclamation and having kurt basically give him a free pass because of his woobie man!pain.
this is a terrible, terrible message for glee to be sending, how do they not see that? D:
…do the writers not realize how incredibly creepy all that behavior is, coming from Karofsky and given his history with Kurt?
Kurt is nice, so he’s giving Karofsky the time of day and engaging in conversation with him.
But he’s under NO OBLIGATION to acknowledge Karofsky, care about his pain, or anything. This whole scene just sends a “stalking is love” or “stalking is friendship” kind of vibe that’s just gross.
Plus? The worst part is I think the writer’s are completely obvious to the implications this scene has, because they wrote the scene to be a form of closure from Karofsky’s perspective. Kurt’s perspective does not enter into this, and is not the important thing, the way the writers are framing this situation.
You know, I was fine with how we’d left Karofsky in 3x05. He’d grown and matured and was doing better at accepting himself and building a life that was based on kindness and not bullying.
Now, even though the writers don’t realize it, Karofsky’s essentially back to the same behavior, but motivated by “friendship” and “love” and not bullying.
But it is bullying, effectively, because it’s stalking. Even if the perpetrator doesn’t think he’s doing it, and even if Kurt doesn’t see it that way (as far as we know).
Karofsky (and the writers) need to learn that the best way to ‘redeem’ a former bully is to have him apologize and then leave the victim’s life, because he owes the victim NOTHING. Any further interaction, even with the intent to be motivated by kindness and friendship, just makes things worse from the victim’s perspective because once you’ve broken someone’s trust (or never gave them to reason to develop it in the first place) you can NEVER regain it fully.
Karofsky will never be redeemed in my eyes if he doesn’t understand how to respect the feelings of the person he bullied, and if he doesn’t take responsibility for his actions by recognizing that no matter how much of a ‘good’ person he becomes, he can only maintain a friendship with Kurt to the extent that Kurt wants, not what he (Karofsky) desires.
