I just wanted to write some stuff about glee.
Well, Dave, mostly.( Read more...Collapse )
I'm hazarding a guess that a good proportion of Karofskians tend to ship Kurtofsky, at least to some extent (and particularly after PQ). While I do love Dave, and I want him to be happy, there are a few reasons I don't properly ship Dave with anyone (I say properly because I have said I ship Blainofsky and Save, but purely for my entertainment xD. If anything, it's Adiss and Adlerstreet.).
It's been interesting for me watching Dave's journey, because in many ways it has mirrored my own (though I can't say I was a bully, but other aspects do ring true), and pretty much ever since Never Been Kissed, I felt a very strong connection to him. Witch makes me sound dumb because this is a TV show. Damn you Glee, the only show that turns me into a tacky bitch.
I digress, the reason I don't ship Dave with anyone is that he's not ready for a relationship at all. He's struggling to accept himself. I felt like right at the end of PQ he was at the cusp of self acceptance. But as soon as Dancing Queen started, it was all just a bit much. (And I'm glad he didn't come out then, It would have been to much for him to handle.) I get that he likes Kurt, but I question whether they are real romantic feelings, or if it's just what I like to call "Only Gay In The Village" syndrome. I had it too. It's when you think you're attracted to someone, because they're the only gay person within your social circles, but in reality, you don't really have authentic feelings for them.
I don't deny that he and Kurt are developing mutual respect, and I think they are good as friends, but Dave needs time to discover who he is, and I don't think Kurt is really the right person to do that with, because Dave is so different to Kurt. Like, when Dave comes out, he's not suddenly going to start wearing vests and hats.
In terms of coming out, public isn't the right place for Dave, and I don't think Kurt really understood this. Kurt didn't have a lot to lose, because his friends (who pretty much knew) would have been supportive no matter what, and he loves attention obviously, so that kind of leap out of the closet might be fine for him, but definitely not Dave. Dave's friends aren't going to be accepting off the bat. What I'd like to see Dave do (I know none of this will ever happen- RIB probably won't even explore this aspect of the story) is come out to Azimio one on one. That way he can talk to him, as a bro, and hopefully Azimio will respect their friendship and perhaps accept Dave's sexuality, at least to an extent.
