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!
