In all the talk about the car scene, there’s one thing I haven’t really seen focused on, and I find it very upsetting.
Why I’m ultimately not upset with Blaine, and why I cringe at the people blaming him for it while completely ignoring the other ways that scene could have played out.
I agree a LOT and for my own personal sanity, I choose to pretend that this scene never happened.
Glee is NOWHERE NEAR sensitive enough to deal with issues like this and not screw it up monumentally.
Need contraversy?? I know - lets create an ambiguous scene where the current and trusting, caring and loving boyfriend can potentially, if looked at with narrow eyes and a smidgen of prejudice, be seen as being on par with the persistent bully.
Glee, you infuriate me terribly sometimes and I hardly EVER get serious about this show because JESUS CHRIST no way is it possible - it’s a mine field - but this scene and this issue drives me insane.
They don’t think about the possible connotations of anything they do and move swiftly onto a heartbreakingly perfect scene of connection and intimacy and trust when they’ve just plonked in a terribly edited scene of SERIOUS issues there for people to take whichever way they choose - no Glee. you decide your stance and you state it, you don’t make MASSIVE statements like you did in Never Been Kissed then a year down the line try to FLIPPANTLY cause an argument by using a scene that people have then twisted to suggest exactly the same thing.
Nothing about either situation is similar.
You’re so very right for what you said. For MANY reasons, it’s a worrying scene and I am just not going to think about it.
