First, I was up until past midnight, I couldn't turn the brain off after writing the GLEE RECAP AND COCKTAIL RECIPE (pink pucker, I'm sorry, I come up with names based on titles and make them a week early, otherwise I'd never sleep EVER and my hands cramped up yesterday because I have written over 40,000 THIS WEEK, that is not hyperbole) so please give my life meaning and read it. And share my squee. And laughter. And tears. But not this breakfast burrito because I'm really hungry, okay?
UM. A WARNING TO A FEW AFTER I SKIMMED LJ/TUMBLR/TWITTER LAST NIGHT. SPOILER FOR 3x05!!
Blaine. Drunk. Loving his boyfriend. Oblivious, because Blaine is oblivious because he's a big puppy dog of joy and action. And he listens when people talk, he really does, and his boyfriend (in an unfortunate mix of animals prints, was that a full-length robe!?) was worried that Blaine wasn't interested in him sexually. And he is. But he's respectful. THAT WAS THE POINT, that he's always been respectful.
And his inhibitions went, and Kurt chose for them to go there, and he wanted to love his boyfriend. He did not molest him, he did not attack him, he was trying to love him. And Kurt handled it. Kurt handled HIMSELF, because he can. I feel like when people "Oh, poor baby Kurt!" they're not realizing that KURT is the strongest one in the relationship. Kurt knows exactly what he wants, (or didn't in this case) and he took care of things.
Just because he has an effeminate voice, just because he carries himself in an elegant way, doesn't mean he will let himself be a victim. That's kind of the POINT of Kurt Hummel since 2.18. Maybe you just haven't been watching? I've seen a few posts where people talk about "attempted rape" and I want to scream. YOU HAVE A REALLY SENSITIVE TRIGGER, I'M THINKING.
Because that wasn't that. At all. Maybe, just maybe think about where your sensitivity lies, and try to be objective. Because last night's episode was wonderful, it was real, and it didn't treat anyone with kid gloves - not until they treated each other that way.
Holy crap. I just need a Slanket made of Darren Criss, is that too much to ask for? Let's hash things out at the recap. Help me. HELP ME DEAL WITH THESE FEELINGS, omg.
