do you ever go through those phases where you just don’t feel like talking to anyone for a few days and it’s not because you’re mad or anything you just don’t feel like talking???
Anonymous asked: In your opinion, who is worse to Kurt? Rachel or Blaine?
They’re both bad for Kurt, but I’ll give it to Blaine by a nose.
Rachel, for all that she saw Kurt as her competition, still respected Kurt as a performer. She could be an ass when it came to trying to promote her superiority, but she never forgot the fact that he was the only one that she could see as being anything close to her equal. And she could be very good about supporting Kurt at times when it wasn’t taking anything away from her. When her delusions of her own importance got the better of her, she could be an absolute beast to be around (and there were many times when I wouldn’t have blamed Kurt at all for giving up on Rachel), but she usually will come around and at least show to a small degree that keeping Kurt’s friendship. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t horribly one sided and that Rachel in no way deserves Kurt’s friendship, but it has its moments when I do see why they are friends.
As for Blaine… I don’t doubt that Blaine loves Kurt as much as he’s capable of loving someone other than himself. But I don’t think that he respects Kurt. Not as a performer and not as a man. He was comfortable in the relationship when he was the one at the top - the one who as considered the more talented and more desirable. He resented when Kurt was paid attention by anyone (especially other boys). He might deign to share the spotlight with Kurt when the mood took him (or when he had something to gain from it), but he hated when Kurt would get featured and he wasn’t. He wanted Kurt to be weaker and less than he was and now that Kurt is stronger (physically, emotionally, spiritually) than he is and seen by most as being a greater talent, Blaine cannot handle it. I only have to look at his voice over during tested to get a real sense of the distain he feels for Kurt and the fact that he resents when others see Kurt as being desirable, strong and “leading man” material.
This ends up being the deciding factor for me. Rachel might see Kurt as her competition as much as Blaine does, but she can be genuinely happy for his successes (if they don’t take anything away from her). Blaine can’t be. He only is interested in his own successes and Kurt succeeding means that he is failing.
You: Why not?
Them: It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
You: So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
Them: NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
You: You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
Them: But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
You: Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".

Mastectomy & Men
I’m a grad-student who works in the oncology department and these last few weeks, I’ve been involved a lot in breast cancer cases. One woman said that she wasn’t sure whether to undergo mastectomy because her boyfriend had told that it would make her ‘less of a woman’ and that he’d rather ‘let her die’ than let her have one breast. When the doctor informed her that if she decided not to have the operation, the cancer would most certainly spread to other areas and would result in her death, the woman burst into tears, declaring she didn’t want to die. But, as far as I know, she never came back.
Another woman arrived resolute for her mastectomy. Before her operation, she told me: ‘I wish my husband was here with me.’ Then she smiled a little. ‘But he’s coming to pick me up.’ After her operation, she waited for her husband. He never came. One of the nurses had to drive her back.
There are countless other stories and countless other woman, but the theme that reoccurs the most is a man who refuses to accept a woman without breasts. When I told other people, especially my fellow male grad-student, they said: ‘Oh, they were just dating/married assholes.’ Maybe. I don’t think that really changes anything though. I think it only highlights how often woman are objectified and led to believe that their self-worth derives from their appearance. And all I, insignificant grad student, is take these woman and tell them that they are as beautiful as they want to be and infinitely important no matter what. Because what they think of themselves matters the most. But why would they believe me? The world says the complete opposite.
