‘Glee’ slammed for gay teens and sex

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Glee’ went to break more boundaries last night with their episode that implies two gay teens had sex for the first time, which has some people quite upset.

The episode implies that Chris Colfer’s character has sex with Darren Criss’ character while Lea Michele’s character also has sex with Cory Monteith’s character. However, Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute is upset with the way the show is going, states RadarOnline.com.

“This is just the latest example of ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy pushing his own personal pro-gay agenda on the American public — this week alone including gay teen sex and a gay bar,” Gainor commented.

Gainor also questioned whether or not this episode is about what is really happening in high school or if it is just Murphy’s “twisted fantasy life.”

Colfer recently commented that he was proud of how the scenes were handled for viewers: “I think it’s handled very sweetly and very emotionally…They’re expecting this big, raunchy, suggestive, brainwashing story line when really it’s very sweet.”

    thought it was a great episode!! Well written and entertaining as usual. I thought they handled the topic very tastefully. Perhaps it may have been a bit risque for the demographic that watch it but its t.v. Of course, people are going to say what they want, as they’re allowed, but seriously, if you dont want your kids watching it, then dont let them.

    I’m 100% against censorship and I wouldn’t consider myself conservative about TV shows/movies by any means, but considering the fact that very young kids watch this, I thought the episode was a little inappropriate. I thought maybe the show could have had one of the couples decide to wait, especially considering pretty much ALL of the teens on Glee have had sex. Some kids are just easily impressionable and it would have been nice to have a couple decide not to have sex… waiting to lose your virginity until you’re older, or even married, even though that doesn’t happen for the majority of people, is a completely viable (and advisable!) option. (I do agree with Chris Colfer, though, in the fact that I thought the scenes at the end of the episode with the two couples in bed were sweet. They didn’t even show either couple without shirts on or show either couple kissing while in bed. If the show was going to have these couples lose their virginity, I thought this was the best way to do it considering how many pre-teens and younger kids watch it.)

    However, I completely disagree that this was pushing a pro-gay agenda. Gay teens exist and some gay teens, just like some straight teens, choose to have sex. I just can’t comprehend why it would be more inappropriate for the two gay teens to have sex than it would be for the two straight teens to have sex. Unfortunately, some people in this world are just ignorant. I would have hoped that by 2011, this would have changed, but it hasn’t. Shows like Glee are helping people become more informed about sexuality and making it easier for homosexuals to be themselves in the process. The reason some people are against homosexuality is because of pure ignorance. That’s the only reason, and I honestly feel sorry for those people. That’s terribly sad, and people like that must live a sad life. I’m glad that more people, especially younger people, are becoming more accepting because of shows like Glee. I’m 25 and when I was in high school, only one boy in my grade had the courage to come out of the closet. No females in my grade did. (Now that I think about it, this boy was the only kid in my school that I know of that had the courage to come out of the closet… all four years that I was there. That’s an incredibly sad fact.) I don’t agree with everything that Glee does and I think it does tend to push the envelope on what is appropriate for the age range that watches it, but I am incredibly happy that shows like Glee have made it easier for gay teens.
