We're in for a wild ride tonight, Gleeks (no pun intended)!
Some groups are mad about teens having sex, and then of course there are those specifically upset about the gay sex too.
So to cover some bases, Ryan Murphy has already discussed the show's reasoning for including Kurt and Blaine's moment to Entertainment Weekly:
We were talking about it [in the writers’ room] like, ‘Why shouldn’t [Kurt and Blaine] lose their virginity at the same time? Everybody has seen a straight couple losing their virginity, but has anyone dovetailed the gay and straight stories together and given them equal weight? That seemed like an exciting choice and a new thing.
We completely agree. Blaine and Kurt are important players on Glee. If Rachel's gonna give her virginity up, there's no real reason to exclude them.
It reminds us of all the nonsense Katy Perry got for her I Kissed A Girl single. We were like, "are you getting pissy with every other songwriter who sings about straight people kissing too?"
Now. Back to the teen sex. We've said it before and we're gonna say it again right now. Before you protest it, you'll probably make more ground with the kids if you watch it with them and discuss it after. Everyone might learn something!
This is the culture we live in, folks! If you don't agree with teens having sex, cool. But don't ignore it. Address it and discuss it!
