Anonymous asked: Why do you hate the Kurtofsky (non romantic) development tonight so much?
I suggest you find my tag “kurtofskystuff” and read what little I’ve written in the past.
I’m not delving into it, you can visit many MANY blogs and people who share my opinions and are expressing themselves but I think I’ve made my opinion very clear in the past.
Without going to personal matters, I find the way Glee dealt with the whole thing VERY VERY lacking. The way KURT has dealt with it is admirable and I don’t necessarily disagree with how he’s being portrayed (which I am SO thankful for because I seriously did worry about that) but I have past experiences that make it extremely uncomfortable for me to see that kind of interaction on my screen…
Experiences to do with intimacy and feelings towards someone who can potentially be extremely close to you. Feelings about the invasion of personal space and the right for a person to choose when it’s invaded or approached. Feelings about the road to recovery for a person who feels it is an OPTION to act towards another person with anger, hatred, aggression and intimidation EVEN if that behaviour manifests itself due to the bully’s own lack of understanding, truth, honesty or their own issues.
None of that is quickly excusable and none of it is easily dealt with considering the person who was subject to that.
I have NEVER disagreed with Karofksy receiving the proper treatment for someone in his position. He’s a frightened and terribly confused young man and that is entirely understandable, however, what he did is NOT excused with a tearful apology. What he did is NOT excused by being a secret admirer.
Glee has a RESPONSIBILITY to treat such feelings/storylines/issues of great sensitivity with the utmost respect and proper and necessary DEPTH and it has failed in this circumstance.
It is simply upsetting for me due to personal reasons and this is all I’m saying on the matter. I’ll just direct people to my tag if they want to know my feelings.
[And because I always feel the need to say it… this, and I stress, has absolutely NOTHING to do with “shipping”.]
