The thing that I’m not sure people understand is that wanting Kurt and Blaine to kiss is not, for the most part, about the actual kiss. Sure, there is a certain pleasure in watching two attractive people touch lips, but if that were the case here, I could go find porn and be content with that, but the reason I am so disappointed right now is not due to ‘entitled Klaining’ or whatever label you want to slap on it.
The reason I want a kiss between those two boys so badly is because Kurt and Blaine represent something that hasn’t been shown on family-oriented television shows before. They are two boys in a stable, loving relationship, who represent so much more than just the punch-line or the ‘token gay’ relationship in the background. This is the couple that people can look at and realize that it is serious, it is real, and it is nothing be frightened of. This is the couple that the media fell in love with, that had people screaming when Blaine finally initiated that first kiss, that showed us all that the little boy we fell in love with when he came out to his father didn’t have to be lonely, but could find someone to love him as much as he wanted to love someone.
This is the couple that is capable of making a difference, and every time that Glee shows them as just another couple, just like everyone else—whether it be through kisses or ‘I love you’s or sexting or being intimate—that’s when people start to realize that being gay doesn’t make you into some sort of anomaly, a freak, something to be afraid of. It just makes you gay.
So if I want to be upset that once again a couple that has the power to truly change people’s mindsets has been shoved to the side and with notably different displays of affection, I don’t think it’s fair for you to write that off as ‘entitled Klaining’. The issues here are so much bigger than just a fictional relationship, and if you can’t see that, then I genuinely feel sorry for you.
