Is Glee a sexist show?
Numerous Glee fans, or Gleeks, have been complaining about the seemingly “lack of PDA” between same-sex couples on the show. Finally, Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the show, answers the speculations about the Fox hit series being a rather sexist TV production. Colfer shares:
That surprises me because I always feel like Darren’s mouth is on mine. Always. I feel like that is just another day at work. Actually I don’t think I’ve noticed. I feel like people get mad at that, but I mean you really have to look at how high schools are these days.
Gay couples aren’t as comfortable showing PDA, especially in the middle of Ohio. I feel like when people get in uproar about this, it’s really kind of unfair because the show is trying to portray it as realistically as possible.
Darren Criss, who plays Blaine in the show and is Kurt’s current love, shares:
I always want them together. The way I see it, you’ve established that you’re the couple. If things shake up I’m all about it, but as long as they know they have to get back together in the end, like all good love stories, than I’m cool with it.
There you have it, Gleeks! Now you can stop worrying about PDA and start focusing on the new twists of season four!
Chris Colfer, also known as Kurt Hummel in Fox’s hit series Glee, wrote a children’s novel called The Land of Stories and recently released the book America-wide. The actor’s first book is about twins Alex and Connor, who find themselves swallowed by their favorite book of fairy tales, all of a sudden face-to-face with fictional characters they’ve only imagined.
Colfer, 22, says he came up with the books idea as a very curious child who always questioned the fairy tales his mom read to him. He shares:
I used to ask, ‘Mommy, who’s the man in the mirror? Why’s he talking to the evil queen? Why’s she so evil? Why does she hate Snow White so much?’ I just tried to clarify the questions that I had as a kid.
He adds that the book came to existence last summer when he was on the Glee world tour.
I was writing constantly in my hotel room and under the stage during performances even, and I’d be singing, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ and I’d think of something really witty for Connor to say. Had to run downstairs to the changing booth, type it into my computer, run off and do ‘Single Ladies’ in leotard. It was an interesting summer. I don’t think I’ve mentally recovered from that time.
The actor/singer also shares that he will soon be releasing a sequel to the book, in which the twin characters will be older.
