I wish we’d seen Dave shirtless. Not just because I think Max Adler is a handsome lad, but because I’m really uncomfortable with the way Glee handles weight. A year ago, Kurt called Dave “chubby” in the locker room scene, and last night Kurt’s bucket list included a fantasy of having relations with “Taylor Lautner before he gets fat.” And we’ve seen Kurt pushing Mercedes to starve herself in order to fit the mold of Cheerio (and enjoying Splenda for breakfast) — ultimately, I get the feeling the only reason Kurt is OK with having a fat friend is that Mercedes is a girl and no one’s going to think he desires her.
Ok, I’ll admit, when I read this bit while I was lying in bed moderating comments (this is not my life), I was like,
Yes, you, I know you want to see Karofsky shirtless
and almost didn’t read the why. And that would have been unfortunate because it’s totally interesting.
