I’d like to apologize to the Eastern seaboard of the USA. Clearly we’ve been having prolonged winter weather due to the fact that I had yet to set my laptop to my spring background. I’ve just set it, so things should be warming up soon.
there are many things that Ryan Murphy has done that have pissed me off, but none so much as that comment he had Brittany make about “angry lesbian bloggers that hate Sam”. Not only was it insanely insulting to the Brittana fandom, but it was immature and unprofessional of him.
Wait, so brittany saying that is the writers fault, but Santana saying something about brittany straying for dick and it’s Santana’s fault?
Smh. This is honestly how a lot of them think. Reason why I hate majority of the brittana fandom.
Oh I absolutely blame both of those of those events squarely on the writers. The insults to the Brittana fandom were uncalled for and really not conducive to getting people to accept Bram. You don’t need to be a lesbian to ship a female/female couple, and lesbians certainly don’t need to be mocked for wanting representation in media by having “love is love” thrown back at them like they’re somehow as bad as homophobes for not liking a couple that rewrote Sam’s personality and regressed Brittany’s.
The “straying for penis” line is something that should never have come out of Santana’s mouth, that and other lines from the same episode were just more examples of Glee’s (which Ryan Murphy demonstrates often) biphobia. Santana actuallly congratulates Kurt for being engaged to boy who literally strayed on him for penis while congratulating herself for having a completely gay girlfriend. This is absurd. During “the Breakup” Santana tells Brittany it’s okay if she has an attraction and sets her free so that they don’t end up cheating on each other. When Brittany tells Santana she’s not dating anyone new, boy or girl, in “Glease” Santana tells her it would be fine if she were. When Santana has her sing off with Sam in “Diva”, it’s because she thinks she’s found a way to stay in Lima and not have to deal with the roadblocks they had earlier with a long distance relationship. She even tells Brittany she just wants her to aim higher than Sam. And Brittany, in what I believe was a move to keep Santana from staying in Lima and having her spirit crushed like Finn, encourages her to believe in herself and go to New York. And when we last see them together in “All or Nothing”, Brittany is broken up with Sam and the two girls are clearly reconciled. That any of that series of events constituted “straying for penis” is ridiculous. I definitely blame the writers. In general they’ve been scatter shot with characterization and continuity since Season Four.
I know. This is a very controversial topic right now but hear me out. Because I am disabled and I am frustrated with what this site has turned ableism into. Nothing more or less than a list of words to be avoided . Tumblr informs me that that is all I have to face and struggle…
It’s just myself, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Chord Overstreet in New York City. I think that’s everyone. Chris, Kevin, Darren Chord, Kevin, me and then Amber comes in for a few episodes.
welp…guess this is definetly confirmation…and sorry, this combination is just not going to raise the ratings
Hahah I’m sorry but who the actual fuck is going to watch this shit
Oh wow, all white people all the time. How awesome! And only one girl! Well, and a little bit of Amber Riley. Seriously WTF. At least Naya and Amber have albums now and will hopefully have successful careers after this. They, the season three and four newbies and Jenna deserve so much better than this.
Argh, this is making me so mad and I wish I wasn’t feeling so dead this week. I promised myself both my Buffy stories would have updates before I started my Glee! rewrite but this is just so frustrating. You had a great premise. You have amazing performers. You have so many positive messages you could have and sometimes did put forward for kids when you weren’t being lazy and offensive. Why did you have to mess it up so so badly these past couple of years?
edit: Also, aside from Artie all the characters that the show will now be focusing on are the ones who have already gotten a million plotlines and songs and have become more and more grating over time. I have no confidence in the writer’s abilities to make these characters likeable and to keep creating storylines for them. The show has a big problem with creating this huge roster of characters (and introducing new ones and guest stars all the time) and then not doing anything with them.
Recovering From Sinus Surgery
So after 30 hours my nose has decided it doesn’t need to constantly bleeding, only intermittently bleeding. I’m still flipping back and forth between being super energetic for a few minutes to bone dead exhausted for several hours, so I don’t know when I’ll be alert enough to finish up my writing. I’ll try and take advantage of the weekend off my feet to at least catch up with my Buffy stuff, if not a bit of my Glee! stuff.
This is Ruthie. Ruthie was born without all the functions of her liver, and she’s having a rough time. When she was a baby, a doctor took part of her small intestine and made a little patch up for the missing parts of her liver. But this is only temporary.
Ruthie needs an organ donor, and her operation will cost around $500,000 dollars. Her family can’t pull that money, so all they’re asking for is $40,000 dollars.
With your help, Ruthie can have her surgery. Without her surgery, her body will soon outgrow the patch she has in place.
If you want to donate to Ruthie’s surgery, click here.
If you want to send a check, click here.
If you want to donate and find companies willing to match your donation, click here.
Ruthie and her family need all the help they can get, Ruthie already has hospital bills piling up, as every time she has a fever, she has to go to the hospital and get her blood checked for bacteria, then stay there for a few days.
Ruthie deserves a life outside of the hospital, and even if you can’t make a donation, it’d help so much just to signal boost this and reblog it, only the pictures of her show up on your blog.

A few days later Dawn was sitting in an unfamiliar office, waiting to give out another truncated version of her life story to another mystery adult in authority. Teachers, social workers, friend’s parents; she could hardly count the number of people who’d tried digging into her personal life over the past year. And she surely couldn’t count the number of lies and half-truths she’d had to come up with to protect her family and friend’s secrets. She glanced at the guidance counselor’s blue pendant, wondering what she’d kind of web she’d have to spin this time.
“So I’ve been looking through your file… and, um, your grades have slipped a little.” The woman said raising the girl’s defenses.
“I have really hard classes this quarter.” Dawn replied.
“Yeah. Still, teachers say that you seem a little distracted lately.”
“I’m not. I’m fine.” She was surprised they’d noticed, she’d thought she’d been putting on a better face this school year.
“Okay.” The counselor said calmly. “It’s just, you know, I know it must seem weird,” She chuckled, “Talking to a stranger about stuff, but, um… I want you to know that if something’s going on, something’s up… my job, the most important part of my job- is looking out for you.” The woman smiled and waited.
“I’m really okay.” Dawn said with as much conviction as she could.
“I know there’s been a lot of loss.”
“Yeah.” The girl looked down, unable to keep from thinking about those losses. “Kinda. I-I mean, yes. People keep… People have a tendency to go away, and I miss them.” It had started with her father leaving, who was followed by Riley and Giles. Tara was still in town at least, but it wasn’t the same now that she had moved out. And nothing would ever erase the pain of losing her mother. Even the people that were still in her life were fairly distant, distracted with slaying, wedding preparations or addiction recovery. “And sometimes… I wish I could just make them stop going away.” Dawn caught herself before she said something that would get the counselor more concerned with her business. It made her nervous how easily this stranger was drawing her emotions out of her. She had to be stronger. “But seriously, it’s-it’s no big deal. I’m fine.”
Like, sometimes you can go for two days on one bowl of cereal and not care. But when you’ve got to fast twelve hours for a blood test suddenly your body’s like “FOOD FOOD WHY ARE WE NOT EATING ALL OF THE FOODS???”
