What are you hoping fans will take away from the episode, especially teenagers that are gay themselves?
Thank you for asking me that. I really hope that if Kurt and Blaine do anything for society or the world or anything like that, I really just hope it kind of sets the standard for gay kids. I don’t mean to upset anyone by saying this, but it is just kind of a known fact that a lot of gay kids are very promiscuous and non-exclusive with each other when they have relationships, which is really sad. But I think with Kurt and Blaine, I would hope would set an example of what something should be and could be. You know, two people finding each other and really loving each other and wanting to give the world to each other.
Quickly, because I really don’t have the time and I’m seeing a lot of this everywhere right now.
1. He’s 21 and he’s been out for 2 years. I’m not saying someone shouldn’t talk to him, maybe, about portraying open relationships as “sad”, but it’s not gonna be fandom that changes his mind. He’s still a baby gay, just a super-famous one. At 21, I’d have said similar.
2. For a writer/debate genius, he is terrible with words when he’s speaking. For instance: “I think the show is infamous for handling sensitive topics with care.” And there’s a YouTube video out there where he basically can’t get a sentence out that makes sense. To know he actually meant what he said, someone would have to press him on it. And that is not going to happen, ever.
Edited to add:
Thanks to Rae Votta commenting below, we have this to add. In another interview, Mr Colfer may have worded himself a bit better.
Theirs is a groundbreaking relationship that needs to be seen. Especially since I think there’s a misconception that relationships between two young gay guys usually aren’t monogamous. And that’s sad. I’m glad that Kurt and Blaine are an example of what a relationship could be, and that’s one of the reasons I think fans have grown to love them so much.
It’s less factually untrue at any rate.
