AGH! So much to do!
Tonight I went out with the Pride Exec. The GESJ (gender equality and social justice) profs took us out for dinner along with the director of and a speaker for Put this on the Map. Later I went to a screening of their documentary. It was really good, very thought provoking. It was all about re-teaching gender and sexuality. It’s particularly awesome because for a while now, I’ve been wanting to get into high schools to do just that. Tomorrow they’re having a seminar which I will be skipping class to attend. I’m excited! I actually had no idea how I was going to go about it, but I’m getting ideas! YAY! And tomorrow I’ll get to pester the speakers with questions. Mwahahaha!
So here’s a little clip explaining what they’re about.
ALSO! BECAUSE HOW CAN I NOT! GLEE!
Oh my goodness! My heart broke for Santana. I suspected, I mean, who didn’t, but that was horrible. Unfortunately realistic but horrible and heartbreaking. And I love that she refused to let Rachel label her. LOVE IT! I’m talking standing ovation, screaming at the TV, love it. Sexuality is personal, it is fluid, and most of the time, it doesn’t fit in a box. Putting a label on it is ridiculous because it shouldn’t matter to others “what you are”. It shouldn’t matter because “what you are” doesn’t matter. It’s WHO you are that does. Personally, I’d like to think that if a guy totally swept me off my feet and I fell in love with him that I would be with him. It just so happens that at this point in my life, I haven’t been attracted to a man. The key word is obviously "shouldn't". I thought Artie and Brittany were cute, but come on! Santana gets Brittany! It’s supposed to be!
Puck and Lauren. Those two never cease to amuse me. I’m unreasonably happy that Puck seems to have clued in. I love how he’s so... seemingly stupid, but somehow introspective enough to try to change himself. He’s so blunt about it too. Thankfully the sex video didn’t happen. That would have been all kinds of... awful and weird. I’d have been pissed.
Kurt. I love that storyline. It’s so true. Sex Ed in schools is so deficient (I’ll say generally) when it comes to heterosexual intercourse. I considered my school a pretty open and safe place but never was a word spoken about any type of intercourse other than heterosexual. So yay Blaine for putting Burt onto that deficiency and not taking responsibility for it himself and yay Burt for being a good dad.
This episode fit in so well with the documentary from tonight it was slightly insane. I loved this episode. So much so that I’m not even going to bitch about Finn’s stupidity. Believe me, I could find a way. I actually do think (in spite of my love of Faberry) that Finn and Quinn are supposed to be a couple. I think they’re at the same level. I guess I’ll switch my loyalties over to Brittana.
I hope that Santana gets what she wants. That was just... painful. I’ve been there. Twice. And it was that incredibly painful both times. I’ll be watching and siding with Santana from now on.
