IF I FORGET MY HOMEWORK:
IF I FORGET MY IPOD OR PHONE:
Because suddenly I thought to myself….it’ll only be a matter of weeks until we get the preview and then the official song and then the episode….and I got so happy I started crying while cooking my burgers. XD My grampa came in the kitchen, saw me crying and walked away awkwardly. kkjfnbkjfkdjbkjd
Which reminds me, it’ll be soon that I’ll be coming out to my grampa. I promised to myself that I will come out the day that Dave does and so….I am preparing myself for that day. Wish me luck! :D <3
Max , you turn me on and make me happy. Thank you so much! *hugs gif*
Good luck, hun! :’)
Whatever happens, we’ve got your back.
Best of luck.
*hugs* Thanks! :D
those are both tear-worthy things.
I beleive in you!

Or, “Your Santana High Horse: GET OFF IT.”
I should preface this post/examination/rant with the fact that I am a fan of Santana. I enjoy watching her character and the drama she brings to the storyline and I was touched by her evolution and growth, particularly in the episode “Sexy.”
Not unsurprisingly, many people saw parallels between Santana’s confession in “Sexy” regarding her anger issues and Karofky’s behaviour.
Now, what I don’t enjoy are the irrational superfans who responded to this on Tumblr and Twitter by posting hysterical, squalling rants whitewashing Santana into the Patron Saint of Closeted Lesbians and completely refuting any possible comparison between Saint Santana and Luciferofsky.
I’m open to arguments that the similarities between Santana and Karofsky aren’t exact, and again, when it comes to Santana, I wants her on my TV and I wants her on it now, but you’re even more in denial than Karofsky if you see no similarity. Let’s tear down some arguments, shall we?
1. “They’re not the same! Santana loves and cherishes Brittany but Karofsky abuses and terrifies Kurt!” —> This, ladies and gentlemen, is known as a “straw man” argument. No one is comparing Brittana and Kurtofsky - especially since (sorry pirates), Kurt and Karofsky have no relationship yet. The comparison comes instead from the motivation behind Karofsky and Santana’s bullying in general. Santana explicitly states, and I’m quoting her verbatim: “I’m a bitch because I’m angry.”
She, like Karofsky, enjoys a higher status on the social food chain - he’s on the football team, she’s a cheerleader (or was). Either way, both of them stand to lose a great deal in status if their homosexuality were to become publicly known. Neither of them can handle their feelings (and again - Santana states this point blank) and this terrifies them into taking it out on other people. Okay, so Santana doesn’t take it out on Brittany - but she takes it out on nearly everyone else in Glee club.
And, hey, are we forgetting that whole scene where Santana broke Brittany’s trust about her possible pregnancy the millisecond her back was turned?
2. “Santana just speaks her mind - she’s not violent like Karofsky!” Um, what?
Okaaaaaaay, then. Let’s also not forget how she physically assaulted Lauren and attempted to bitchslap Rachel when Rachel tried subbing for Schue.
But, oh, right, she’s a hot girl so this is meant to be funny and titillating.
3. “I can’t believe you think Santana is anywhere near as awful as Karofsky - he sexually assaulted Kurt!” Oh, right, when he kissed Kurt without permission! Yeah, and I totally remember how Santana politely propositioned that kid with mono before she kissed him to steal his STD and pass it along to Finn and Quinn.
But oh right - she’s a hot girl, so that doesn’t count, even though if you strictly adhere to the definitions of sexual assault, the arousal of the victim does not make up for a lack of consent.
4. “Santana mainly uses her words - whereas Karofsky uses physical violence. Therefore it’s worse.” This is a little more understandable - if I honestly had to put Karofsky and Santana on the bullying spectrum, I too would have to have Karofsky higher because he physically threatens people while Santana (again, moooostly) relies on her “vicious, vicious words.”
But again! That’s not the point - comparisons between Santana and Karofsky don’t spring from “who is the worse closeted bully” but from the fact that they both happen to be closeted bullies.
Yes. Santana is a bully. She does the same thing Karofsky does and for a similar reason - to hide her own insecurities and make herself look/feel better. And while I suppose if I was forced to choose between being flogged by vicious rhetoric and being punched in the face, I would choose the former, it doesn’t mean it wouldn’t hurt.
I was frequently verbally and emotionally bullied by girls when I was in school. In some ways, it can even be worse than physical pain. Physical bullying can leave marks. Bruises, scars, cuts - you can take those to a teacher or authority figure and they’d have a legitimate case against your aggressor. With verbal bullying, there’s a particularly agonizing helplessness to it because no one knows how much it hurts but you. And teachers can’t always take action based on hearsay. So, okay, Santana’s not as bad a bully as Karofsky, but that doesn’t mean she’s not one.
It doesn’t mean it’s not fine and dandy to love Santana and her story arc (because, just to reiterate - I totally do), but at least own up to the fact that Santana is a bitch - don’t bullshit the fandom by brushing away her flaws as if they don’t matter.
At the same time, realizing this made me think about the double-standard of bullying, and why fans of the show are so much more willing to accept Santana as one of the “good guys” despite her behaviour, while at the same time vilifying Karofsky and believing he’s incapable of redemption. Well, there are two main reasons:
1. Santana is a Hot Girl
Yes, it’s sexist, but it’s true - compared to six-foot-two Karofsky, Santana just can’t compete in terms of physical intimidation. Moreover, the show often plays the worst of her bullying - as mentioned above - for laughs or titillation, because it belies her image as a controlled, attractive, put-together cheerleader. Basically, it’s fun and crazy to watch that much hate and poison spew out of that tiny, sexy body, because we can get our schadenfraude on without having to be scared ourselves. I mean, remember “Trouty Mouth”? How humiliating was that for poor Sam? But we didn’t mind, because we were too busy being fascinated that Santana managed to pull off that song with a straight face.
Watching hate and poison spew from the determined index finger of Karofsky, however, is fucking terrifying.
2. Santana is a Hot Girl With Power
I think this is the main reason we love Santana. Because of the way women are often portrayed on television and the media, any girl who uses the weapons she has to get what she wants is better than none at all, in which case, her bullying is often interpreted as empowering - she’s a girl who knows what she wants and goes after it, and she won’t let any man, woman, or hobbit, get in her way. Santana is a powerful character, and it’s easier to admire her than Karofsky. Empowering a male character on American network TV is redundant - therefore, Karofsky’s insults are less funny and more offensive.
But let’s not fight. I honestly hope Santofsky happens (as it’s been hinted) because I believe the characters of Santana and Karofsky could really help each other in the long run toward change and self-acceptance - either that, or begin an empire of terror at McKinley high that will be remembered for generations!
Holy shit. This so hard
