poppa and preachin’

27 May

what is a gayish blog doing if it has not yet blogged about glee? sigh. so here it is: glee is a show that i sometimes like and sometimes hate. i like that it’s out there. i like that it talks about sexuality. i like that there are gay actors that play gays (and straights for that matter). i like that there is music and drama and costume. i think it’s fun. and when i was in high school most of my friends were in the drama department. to clarify- i was not. but i did hang out over there a lot. so let’s just say i have glee tendencies. on the other hand, sometimes i do not find the show very entertaining. i don’t always like the “plots” or the music or dialogue. for me, sometimes it hits it, sometimes it doesn’t. last night, it hit it. (well with the exception of that beth song-booring).

fag.

it’s a word with baggage. and it was said last night on primetime television. now there are a lot of opinions about the semantics of name calling and sexuality and teenage jargon and i could go on and on, but the point is this: we are responsible for the words that come out of our mouths. i’m not sure how well this scene plays out of context, but know this: any parent should take the time to provide a safe and comfortable place for their child and kurt’s dad makes it clear that this is his priority.

don’t worry, finn is a good boy and shows what a sport he is by donning gaga garb later on in the show.
