Kurt and Finn
27 May 2010 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Why so hard on Kurt? Everyone is assuming the "sexual tensions" between Kurt and Finn were Kurt's "fault." Just like Rachel's crush on Finn or Will's crush on Emma were their faults.

Kurt's a kid and however he's behaved (which so far has been purer than many of the rest of the cast) didn't deserve the homosexual panic that Finn displayed and the father rightly jumped on him.

In my family, whatever you thought of homosexuals, you didn't call them names, even behind their backs, so I'm comfortable with the lesson here, and uncomfortable with the high horse this episode has put everyone on.

I'll be looking for all the posters' outrage on Santana's bedding Finn and trying to ruin the Glee club by taking away his virginity.
