Kurt's First Kiss
I don't get to watch Glee, but apparently last night Kurt got his first kiss, and it wasn't at all what anyone was expecting. I think the expectation was that Kurt would be sucking face with the ever-shirtless Chord Overstreet - or maybe I was fantasizing that I was Kurt kissing Sam, IDK.
And while I'm like "Wow, cool. A gay-kiss on the most watched TV show. WOW!" Part of me is also like "Why does it have to be all wrapped up with guilt, complications and drama?" First kisses can be awkward but do they necessarily have to leave a WTF expression on Kurt's face and cause the other character to slam his fists against the lockers??
Why is it so necessary for gay characters to be put in pain to allow middle America to identify with gay people? Why can't Kurt have a first kiss that isn't followed by sadness and questions, questions, questions?
Why can't Ennis and Jack buy a ranch together and live happily ever after? Why can't middle America identify with that?!
