the concept of the ‘friend zone’ is just so utterly insulting to me. it’s part of that whole disgusting ‘nice guy’ shit, like it’s up to that poor underrated nice guy to convince oblivious women that they’re actually romantically attracted to this poor, ignored guy that they’ve just callously glossed over or something.
she just doesn’t know better!!!!!!!! we’d be perfect together!!!!!!!!!! if only she understood!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, I’ve been predisposed to not liking Blaine for rather a long time. If you go back long enough into the annals of my blog, you’ll see that I was actually a huge Blaine fan at first and was super into Blaine-as-a-mentor or even Klaine as Kurt’s first relationship. I loved Darren at the time and felt really happy that this character was joining Glee. I think I began to really feel annoyance towards Blaine when it became clear that the story RIB was trying to tell was one of ‘fixing’ what was wrong with Kurt.
Blaine was still in his ‘mentor’ role, as an out gay boy in Kurt’s life, but what I saw wasn’t a supportive person - but instead someone who constantly told Kurt to tone down his personality and try to fit in, instead of someone who celebrated Kurt for exactly who he was - a fearless, fierce and outgoing personality in an environment that wanted to eliminate all of that. Becoming a nameless Warbler was a problem to me and it was one that was never, ever fixed. (Kurt gets his moment to shine… because Blaine ASKS the council to let him sing. Not because he deserved it. [Even though he obviously did.])
As their relationship became more serious, I’m afraid that all of that original annoyance towards Blaine predisposed me towards viewing all of his actions in a similar light - telling Kurt’s dad to talk to him about sex? How intrusive! Sitting down and looking tired when Kurt got laughed out of prom? How unsupportive! As much as I’m sure Blaine is finally getting his storyline on Glee, Darren Criss stans have ruined the actor that I originally liked (he is not perfect, not by a long shot and his patronizing statements re: gay rights have irked me for awhile) and Blaine will always be a prop for Kurt’s storyline for me. When Blaine began to win out over Kurt, who I enjoy more as a character and who I think has a better actor with a better voice, then I found myself sort of letting go of Glee completely.
And thus, I no longer watch Glee and I probably won’t ever like Blaine.
I’m just saying - old Rachel being back is not character development. Old Puck, Old Quinn, Old Finn being back is NOT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. The only people in character tonight? Santana, Brittany, Sam, Mercedes, and Sue. And do not even get me the fuck started on Lauren.
DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON LAUREN. DO NOT.
GET STARTED ON LAUREN PLEASE GET STARTED ON HER I WANT TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS
FUCKING LISTEN TO ME, YOU GOT ME STARTED. LET ME PUT IT UNDER A CUT BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO OFFEND SOMEONE, I’M SURE.
*raises hand* Offended. I’m sorry, I too have had weight issues my whole life, so I’m definitely not as confident as Lauren, but to say that fat girls can’t be confident? They can’t, merely by fact of being fat? That’s offensive. Do you know why lots of fat girls aren’t confident? Do you know why girls who aren’t the “typical” (and don’t get me started on what is fucking typical because then I won’t ever stop) size feel “gross”? It’s because the entire world - like you just did - is telling them they can’t. And they shouldn’t. So they don’t.
They’re not the right size, they don’t jiggle in the right places, their hips don’t curve in just the right way, their bellies stick out past the tops of their jeans, their thighs rub against each other when they walk - so they must feel like shit. They must never want to leave the house and they should definitely feel ashamed when they feel sexy, because who’d ever want that. Who’d want someone with back rolls or a muffin top or dimply thighs or uneven breasts or a soft tummy? No one, that’s who - so fat girls should just not feel good about themselves. They should embrace that feeling of awkwardness and self loathing and figure out a way to deal with it.
No. I’m fat, and sometimes I look fucking amazing. (And oh god, sometimes I do not because classes are fucking EARLY some days and fuck that, I’m wearing my PJs.) Sometimes I leave my room thinking hellz YEAH do I look good right now. There are girls out there who are so much more than their size and what the fuck the world tells them - but you know what? They fucking love themselves. They love their bodies, despite what the world tells them what they should think.
They actually do exist, I promise you. I swear to you. They are heroines for it too because literally, the entirety of society is telling them to put their goddamn arms down, because no one wants to see that.
I know you said that you were going to offend someone, so I guess I’m one of them. I know you probably didn’t mean it and I’m taking a lot out of context - I’m sorry your post got commandeered for this response, but it’s been on my chest for awhile, so lo siento my dear. D:
