I'm basically going to use tumblr to express my appreciation for Max Adler and my disgust with Glee and the seething monster of superficiality and hypocrisy known as the Glee fandom. No one in my non-internet life watches Glee, so my rage baffles them. Therefore, I needed a place to vent.
I don't watch Glee anymore, and will only return for any episode Dave might be in. (So yeah, that means I'm never watching glee again.) However, just like a a putrid smell in your house that you just can't seem to locate, my rage at the show and its writers has remained. Hence this blog.
The only Glee character I care about is Dave Karofsky. Glee has treated both Dave and Max like absolute shit, eliminating my ability to give a crap about anything else on the show.
I loathe both klaine and blaine.
If you do not like Dave you should not be following me. If you think Kurtofsky is a "toxic" relationship you should not be following me. I have no patience left for the ignorant and hypocritical bullshit that some people continue to spout about these 2 things.There are no perfect angel baby cupcake characters on glee. NONE. All of them have done shitty things to other people. But most of them never actually sincerely apologized and completely stopped their shitty behavior like Dave did. Most of them never changed for the better. Dave did.
Also, fuck you Brad Falchuk.
Being outed, bullied, losing your friends, losing your school, being told by your mom you have a disease, and trying to hang yourself IS NOT EQUAL TO "it's clear-he's out now, he's okay, no more story to tell." How did you ever manage to pass a Writing 101 class? And more importantly, how have you convinced yourself that exploiting LGBTQ suicide is perfectly okay?
Thinking about it, Blaine has also never left the box the fandom first assigned to him. However, in his case it works in his favor.
This is certainly true for most of the current blaine/klaine fans who refuse to see blaine as anything other than the perfect gay prince who rescued Kurt from a life of low self-esteem and loneliness. And since the active glee fandom has been so dramatically reduced due to people quitting everything glee-related, they probably do compose a majority of vocal fandom at this point.
However, I have encountered several people who used to enjoy blaine/klaine, but who now despise blaine because of his actions (and lack of accountability for those actions) as the seasons progressed. But some of these very same people refuse to see Dave as anything other the awful bully who threatened Kurt and made him leave the school. Despite canon evidence that Dave is a new person (one who Kurt currently holds no ill will towards and offered friendship to), they just will not allow Dave to change or grow as a character. All canon evidence of Dave’s redemption are scoffed at and tossed away as “woobifying.”
