Not quite leaving the fandom (yet)…but yeah, this fucking offended me.
You know what, Ryan Murphy? Fuck you.
I like this fandom on most days enough to put up with some of this shit, but this was fucking offensive. Okay, Blaine’s gay. Good for him, it is important for kids to have someone to look up to in these kind of situations. But guess what? Kids and people of any age who are bisexual need someone to look up to as well.
Why can’t Blaine be bi? We have two characters on the show who are gay, maybe it would be good to have some other sexualities as well. I know, it’s a big step to break out of the gay vs. straight mindset, but there’s all other types of sexual orientations as well.
Bisexual, pansexual, gender queer, just to name a few. People of those identities need someone to relate to as well. Not everything is as black and white as gay or straight.
I mean, it has kind of been implied that Brittany was bi or pan or something…but every time, that orientation has been tied into her being a ditz and a “slut”. Way to reiterate nasty stereotypes, guys.
And then there was Santana, who for a while didn’t want to label her sexuality, and I was so proud of the writers for going there, cuz not everyone has (or wants to have) a name for what they are. …But then they had to go and insist that she is a lesbian, and the no-label thing was kind of passed off as a phase. Not that I have anything against lesbians (I mean duh…I hardly think I even need to state that aloud), or lesbian characters (queers of any kind can always use more *positive* media representation), but that just frustrated me…
And yeah…all in all, I’m getting closer and closer to leaving this fandom. It annoys and offends me more the longer I stay with it.
