Bustle article author replied to my tweet- excuse me while I go barf.
What the hell kind of response is that? That person didn’t say anything that warranted that response. If Blaine was dating anyone but Karofsky, literally even Sebastian, I think fandom would be a lot more level-headed and calm. But Blaine dating Kurt’s former tormentor? It makes not a lick of sense. Of course I still doubt that the Blaine and Karofsky storyline will be anything more than a friendship or maybe Karofsky helps out at Dalton now or Kurt sees them and misunderstands and thinks they’re dating.
Also why again the age-old argument that they’re too young? Why does realism creep up in Glee with things like this while everyone is able to suspend their disbelief over the idea of Brittany being fired out of a canon, that Rachel Berry would get the lead on the first Broadway show she ever auditioned for or that when all the Glee club members break out into song in the hallway they sometimes are magically donned in new outfits that apparently the Glee club could afford despite their severe lack of funds. This is a TV show. Tons of young couples get married on TV shows. Cory and Topanga. Nathan and Haley. And Klaine is even older than they were. And what is this about “experience” that constantly comes up? Are we all supposed to wait until society tells us when we’re supposed to get married? The right age, right number of partners. No one knows each individual couple. Just because statistics can be stacked against marrying your high school sweetheart doesn’t mean it doesn’t still happen, because it does still, constantly.
Now is the idea of a guy marrying his high school sweetheart more unrealistic or the idea that a guy would date the love of his life’s former tormentor who physically and emotionally hurt him every day in addition to sexually assaulting him and threatening to kill him? You be the judge of that.
This comment is perfect. Also, statement that “Karofsky may get cozy with Blaine” is of interest to me. I haven’t written off the idea that maybe it’s a one-sided crush on Karofsky’s part. He may try to get a single Blaine to date him but maybe Blaine doesn’t return the feelings because no matter what, he still loves Kurt.
