This is part 2. In part 1, we talked about Blaine and his exploration of his possible bisexuality.
Now, for Santana, who has definitely had sex with both girls and boys in the show, but BUT who The Powers That Be have said is a lesbian.
This is going to be a bit personal for me, because I have found her journey to finding out she’s gay has been rather similar to mine, and for me, very believable.
Yes, she has been with a lot of guys. Not all lesbians are gold stars. There are a lot of reasons a young lesbian might be promiscuous with men. She may feel a need to prove her heterosexuality. She may just feel like there’s something she’s missing, since everyone else seems to be a lot more excited about this sex stuff than she is. Whatever the reasons, it happens all the time. I’m really excited to see how her story evolves.
Now, on to Brittany, who is the only really bisexual character on Glee. First, yes, she is pretty free and easy about the whole sex thing, so yes, we have a stereotype there. Not only does the bisexual have no gender boundaries, but she has no standards either. Then again, they made the angry girl a lesbian and the gay boy loves fashion.
The problem with Brittany is that she’s not about an awful lot else. We know she’s a bit naive, sexually uninhibited and not the brightest. So interestingly, in Brittany, bisexuality is almost presented as a natural default for a person who is largely unschooled byt the world.
I’m kind of neutral on whether that’s a good or a bad or just a thing. What do you think?
