It’s just a room, Finn! We can redecorate it if you want to.
It is not a perfect show. It sometimes isn’t even a good show. But in the last 10 years, there hasn’t been a more IMPORTANT show.
because sometimes, they hit the core, and these are the moments that need to be remembered
ah yes, a photoset I like to call “remember the first season of glee?

I think I’ve all but given up on trying to organize around something so annoying to me as sexuality
the idea that having sexual urges toward any given type of person somehow aligns me to anyone else who has even vaguely analogous desires to someone who is vaguely analogous to my desire object is boring
I don’t care about identities, I care about lifestyles
I don’t care about your urges, I care about your agency
gay is an unsatisfying category to me
faggot comes closer

One of the main defenses of any abhorrent character, whether in Game of Thrones, True Detective, or All in the Family, is that they’re a “product of their times.” This argument is usually wielded as a means of recuperating misogynistic, racist, and/or homophobic men: of course he sexually assaulted/manipulated/destroyed that woman; that’s how men operated then! To some extent, I actually buy this argument: there’s no “outside” of ideology, even in fictional television, and all men must wallow in the moral imperatives set forth by their narratives.
What strikes me, then, is how seldom this defense is used to exonerate unlikable women. Their actions are just as circumscribed by the ideologies that inform their cultures, but instead of explaining why they are the way they are, we call them bitches and shrews, harpies and sluts.
