I love the fact that Glee is helping people become more open minded and less discriminating.
But Kurt Hummel, you are a huge hypocrite.
1) You think bisexual “is a term that gay guys in high school use when they wanna hold hands with girls and feel normal.” You want people to accept who you are, yet you do not accept bisexuals nor recognize their existence.
2) Not all gays are like you. Telling Dave Karovsky that he should know who Eve Harrington is, is like telling a straight guy that he should like cars or some other stereotypical interest. Being gay simply means homosexuality. Interests and behavior are unique for every individual.
Again, I think it’s really great that Glee is helping lessen the discrimination. But then people might end up accepting only the gays and lesbians, but not the bisexuals and other queers. And people might expect gays to fit the stereotype gay.
I guess it’s a step by step process.
Kurt: IT’S JUST A ROOM, FINN! We can redecorate it if you want to.
Finn: OK. Good. Well then, the first thing that needs to go is that faggy lamp and then, we need to get rid of this faggy couch—
Burt: HEY! What did you just call him?
Finn: Oh no, no. I didn’t call him anything, I was just talking about the blanket.
Burt: If you use that word, you’re talking about him.
Kurt: Relax dad, I didn’t take it that way.
Burt: Yeah, that’s because you’re sixteen and you still assume the best in people. You live a few years, you start seeing the hate in people’s hearts. Even the best people. [to Finn] You use the “N” word?
Finn: Of course not.
Burt: How about “retard”? You call that nice girl on the cheerios with Kurt, you call her a retard?
Finn: Becky? No, she’s my friend. She’s got down syndrome. I’ll never call it that’s… cruel.
Burt: Then you think it’s OK to come in my house and say faggy?
Finn: That’s not what I meant…
Burt: I KNOW WHAT YOU MEANT! What? You think I didn’t use that word when I was your age? You know some kid gets clocked in practice we’d tell him ‘Stop being such a fag, shake it off’. We meant it exactly the way you meant it. That being gay it’s wrong. That it’s some kind of punishable offense. I really thought you were different Finn. You know I thought that being in Glee club and being raised but your mom meant that you were some… you know… new generation of dude who saw things differently, who just kinda came into this world knowing what’s taken me years of struggling to figure out. I guess I was wrong. I’m sorry Finn but you can’t stay here.
Burt: I love your mom and maybe this is gonna cost me her but my family comes first. I can’t have that kind of poison around. [to Kurt] This is our home, Kurt [to Finn]He’s my son… Out in the world you do what you want, not under my roof [to Kurt. Burt looks mad] The place looks great.
Every dude should be a “new generation of dude”.
