Need to release this pressure from my head.
1. Why is Glee trying to be the most Christian show on TV? What happened to respecting diversity? What happened to trying not to alienate everyone else in the world? Oh right, I forgot — they are huge hypocrites. Got it.
2. Speaking of hypocritical (or just plain lazy), the Salvation Army is HUGELY ANTI-GAY. I can’t even believe how lazy the writers had to be to somehow forget to make sure the organization they plugged isn’t extremely homophobic.
3. Sue cannot be a moral authority. Quit trying to make Saint Sue happen. She is basically evil. HOW DOES SHE HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO MAKE ANYONE FEEL BAD ABOUT ANYTHING?
4. Why can’t the Glee club just sing at the homeless shelter the next day? Because nice acts only ‘count’ on the day Sue chooses? It is actually way better to space entertainment and volunteering out rather than having everyone come on one day. But no, of course make it seem like that is a horrible idea so we make sure no one actually knows anything about volunteering at services like that.
5. For the self-proclaimed gayest show on TV, Glee sure is scared of being overtly gay. Romance abounds for Finn and Rachel, but basically nothing for Blaine/Kurt and Santana/Brittany. Good to know there is absolutely no reason to tune into this anymore.
6. I will never get over that Bible reading being ham-handedly crammed into our faces. Several of the main characters are Jewish. Kurt is an atheist. A LARGE PORTION OF YOUR VIEWERS similarly are non-Christian. But it’s cool — make sure we know that Christmas, and this show, are definitely not for us.
Only good thing about this horrible episode?
Amber looked/sounded amazing in this episode. Please get off this flop show so I can continue loving everything you do. Take Naya with you, pleaseandthankyou.
P.S. How incredibly patronizing is it to sing “feed the world” at a Soup Kitchen? That song is bordering on bad taste at the best of times anyhow and Glee does itself no favours by singing it in the most literal, awkward, and insensitive context possible.
Oh … My … God …
“Unlock her repressed Malibu Barbie fantasies and buy her a tight tank top with FEMINIST printed on the chest.”
Just when I thought I’d seen it all … MAXIM sets out to teach men a quick, 4-step process to turn a human woman into a mere plasticine homunculus. Also, obviously incredibly transphobic as the images depict a ‘masculine-looking’ woman as BAD (regardless of whether she is a feminist or not), and says the ‘cure’ for what we are to assume is a diseased woman is for men to coerce her into acting in such a way as is deemed sufficiently approximate to the male sex-fantasy.
If you weren’t aware already, this is what we’re up against. People that try to enforce female subservience and the media that normalizes it.
UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. I’m glad to see that I need to be ‘cured’ to become an ‘actual girl’. Also, being vegan is a bad thing as well? WHY DOES THIS EVEN EXIST?
This is up there with “Conservative candidate asks for ‘ethnic costumes’ for Harper photo op”!
“Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper becomes “Chief Speaker” at a Kainai Chieftainship ceremony with elder Pete Standing Alone and Melissa Whitegrass on the Blood Indian reserve in Stand Off, Alberta, July 11, 2011.”
Check out Ben Powless’ speech on exactly what the Harper regime has done for Canada’s indigenous peoples:
“Under the Harper regime, the government has cut over 100 million dollars to housing on reserves, despite many First Nations living in fourth world conditions, with about half of First Nations homes needing major renovations and overcrowding more than doubling the last few years.
Under the Harper regime, the government has sought to punish Native communities who don’t meet federal water standards, instead of providing proper funding and support to deal with thousands of homes that have neither water nor sewage service.
Under the Harper regime, the government has CUT funding for the internationally-renowned Sisters in Spirit initiative (which Bridget Tolley talked about), despite the ever increasing need to tackle the root causes for the problem of missing and murdered Aboriginal women.
Under the Harper regime, Aboriginal children have fallen even further behind on education, despite the fact that as many as three out of four Native teens don’t make it through high school, and many children don’t even have a school in their community. Cindy Blackstock has likened this to a bridge, where for Canadian children, the governments build a bridge to cross the water, and most students cross. For Aboriginal children, the government builds half a bridge, blames Aboriginal children when they fall in and then demands to be thanked for building half-a-bridge.
Under the Harper regime, the government at first refused to apologize for Residential Schools, saying they were only trying to ‘provide Aboriginal children with an education’ — as if that was a decent explanation for committing cultural genocide. It was only when a court ruled that they HAD to apologize that they finally did. And they continue to make a mockery of the apology with their actions.
Under the Harper regime, the government fought tooth and nail against the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. After it was adopted by the UN, they said it was unconstitutional and would be the end of the world, basically. Last year, after much pressure, they quietly announced that they could maybe support it, in theory, except for the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent, otherwise known as the right to say “NO”, the most important part of the Declaration.”
Words cannot really express just how upset this picture makes me. Sure, guys, make him a chief in some weird publicity stunt; just so he and his can fuck us while paying lip service to our cultures and the health and well-being of our people. Harper is the worst kind of colonialist, and frankly, you’re encouraging him.
I’m sorry, but this is a mistake. Harper has done nothing for us, and he never will.
