It might include some of the following…
Still one of my favorite things ever from Glee.
There’s still something amiss when a substantial lip-lock between Nolan and Patrick on Revenge is surprising. Glee fans lost their minds to see Kurt straddle a sexy grifter in “Previously Unaired Christmas Episode” — and the ensuing kiss lasted only a split second before the camera panned away — simply because Kurt and Blaine are so consistently unaffectionate, always opting for a hug after months of separation. It’s hard to imagine how thoroughly heads would explode if Mitch and Cam really gave in to a tender embrace. But seriously, married people have sex too! … While it’s great to see more LGBT characters on TV, we can no longer settle for Mitch and Cam’s chaste union or Blaine and Kurt’s G-rated canoodling.
LGBT representation isn’t just about identity: It’s about affection, desire, and consummation. While TV has done impressive work in pushing forward the message that gays are just like everyone else, it’s high time we recognize what being like everyone else actually means. Sex, however messy or uncomfortable, will always be an essential part of that picture."
While I think the issue for Glee is a bit more nuanced than this (specifically that Glee is generally quite PG (deliberately offensive xmas specials that come with a warning aside), and Kurt and Blaine in my opinion have had both sexually charged moments and Glee level make outs), I DO agree, and always have, that Glee does indeed fall victim to this double standard that is all over network television. While we do get our moments, and Kurt and Blaine are portrayed as sexual, we get less ‘normal intimacy’ in the mundane moments, than is showcased with straight couples.
I think this article captures the issue, without rage or hatred, and is directed at more than one tv show.(via gleekto)
