Wow, seriously? Homosexuality is just as right as heterosexuality, and little kids should not be teached different. But if that's how you truly feel, then fine. You wanna know which episodes have Kurt in them? ALL! Glee is about acceptance, and being who you are! If you are a homophobe, then why do you even consider showing Glee to your kids? Haven't you heard that Glee is 'the gayest show on television'?
I AM NOT HOMOPHOBIC. I simply do not want my children exposed to Kurt and his flamboyant attitude. Homophobia is a hatred of gays, not a fear of gays. I am very dissapointed that there are no Kurt filtered episodes. I have a homosexual cousin. I do not hate her, I just simply leave the room when she's around. I should be allowed to teach my kids the way I want to teach them.
A Reviewer, you may want to just skip Glee if you want to skip the Kurt episodes. He is featured in almost every episode and the show heavily promotes individuality and acceptance (which includes gay characters). Not only that, but the show is meant for kids 14 and over (which I assume your children are younger).
The word "phobia" means "fear". So homophobia means "fear of homosexuals". That means you are a homophobe, admited or not. You don't have to out right hate them by yelling slurs at them, but your actions of treating them like sub-human, and avoiding them at all costs are no less homophobic than those who call for their persecution.
I would definitely skip season 2 all together then. Kurt is in every episode & he gets a boyfriend & there is more than one kissing scene & lots of discussions about homosexuality. It's a shame that you are so close minded & ignorant. Hopefully your children will make their own decisions as they get older & not allow you to be a bad influence on them. Everyone deserves to be treated equally, not just those that YOU decide are important in this world. It's a shame too, season 2 is awesome!!!
People aren't being mean to you, they are pointing out that you are homophobic, ie.. the truth. By the way Kurt is not the only gay character in Glee... watch out for lady kisses between Brittany and Santana, maybe you should skip Glee since it does not agree with your narrow view of the world.
Everyone should be treated with courtesy and respect, but when you choose to go out of your way to not associate yourself with a group of people because of their sexual orientation, race, religion, etc you are acting in a hateful way...in my opinion. Why not be friends with people of a different color, sex, religion, or sexual orientation? Why not try to see the world in a different or new way? If you're coming from a religious background then don't most religions teach that one must love thy neighbor? Love. Not judge. Love. :)
Don't you think it is a good idea to have your children exposed to the idea of acceptance especially since you have a family member that is gay? Your children will be exposed anyways because gay people are all around us. Their human beings...not aliens. I think you need a lesson in acceptance yourself...to be quite honest.
You stating that homosexuality is immoral is just as disrespectful as someone stating your belief is narrow-minded. They are both opinions, but opinions that can hurt. The difference is that while your opinion could change a persons sexuality is not going to. (Not talking about acting on it, but their actual sexuality and who they are attracted to.)
Wow. This is unbelievable. Glee is a show about acceptance, and you should actually teach this to your kids. I heard of parents who watch Glee with their 6-year old son, who became intrigued with Kurt and Blaine's relationship and already revealed himself as gay thanks to Glee. If Glee can teach people how to accept lesbians and gays, and can even help people do their coming out, then it's a show to be valued and encouraged, not scorned and skipped. Be homophobic if it suits you. But don't teach this to your kids. Let them be open-minded. Let them be respectable and tolerant. Let them be your opposite, it's better for our world.
I don't think that's a good example. 6 year olds don't know what they want yet. When I was 6 I hated girls, but I grew up straight. Boys are notorious for disliking girls when they're young, so his admission that he was gay could very well be his preference of guys over girls at a young age.
But you're right the show is about acceptance. But I could see the OP point. The show isn't geared towards kids, but the singing and dancing definitely sparks young kids interest. So showing people puke on stage or having references to masturbation is uncalled for. Ryan Murphy is raunchy. He has terrific ideas, but he's gross sometimes. Take American horror story, it was good and creepy, then all of the sudden the male character starts masturbating on screen. Is that really necessary? It is rated Mature, so its not like its wrong or anything, my point is Ryan Murphy has no qualms about being gross in his telling of a story. The OP just thinks that the show could be better if it was geared toward all audiences. There are ways to appeal to all audiences, and tell risque jokes without being offensive so they go over young kids heads. Glee attempts to cross boundries because the writers have no clue what to write. That's why every character is suddenly coming out of the closet. The writers are running out of ideas so they figure, hey! lets make this character gay. At the rate its going I wouldn't be surprised if the whole cast became gay by the end of the show. The writers stink. Come up with a new storyline..
Many people change sexuality over time and that is natural. It is more heard of with girls, but that doesn't mean that showing an early preference to same-sex relationships is wrong, in my opinion. I thought I was gay when I was younger and feel that I am more bisexual. The show is about teenagers, not children so it is going to deal with teenage issues as well. It is up to the parents to decide whether their children can see a certain scene.If parents want they could see the episode and dvr it and only show certain scenes to their children (I'm talking about the throwing up scene, not the Klaine kissing scene because I think that was sweet and if parents are ok with heterosexual kissing than they should be ok with two males/or two girls kissing). I don't know what you mean when you say that everyone is coming out of the closet. Santana and Brittany were always in a same-sex relationship so it was always known that they like girls even if we didn't know that Santana was strictly lesbian. I am proud that this show has as much GLBT representation as it does.
