Gay Teen Sex on Fox TV: Glee Whiz!!!

 

Entertainment Weekly:

The couples losing their virginity? Finn and Rachel and…Kurt and Blaine! Yep, the couple — who was featured on the cover of [Entertainment Weekly]’s Gay Teens on TV issue – finally decide to take the next step in their relationship. It’s all handled very delicately and is incredibly moving. I can’t think of another network series that’s taken a teenage gay relationship so far or been so progressive. The moment is instigated when another teen, Warbler member Sebastian (Grant Gustin), aggressively pursues Blaine. The trio actually have a very amusing triple date to West Lima’s only gay bar Scandals and run into none other than Karofsky (Max Adler). Look for a great moment between Karofsky and Kurt.

    Please tell me what this story has to do with marrige? It appears that NOM is just firing up anti-gay animus by putting this story on its blog.

    EW should get complaints about the use of the word "progressive".

    I hope there are complaints to the FCC, advertisers and network. This is brainwashing and corrupting the minds of young TV viewers.

    The lbgt doesnt get it. We that believe that marriage is between a man and woman, and we that do not approve of or support homosexual life styles are sick and tired of having it shoved in our faces,of having you agressively attack our beliefs, of you agressively indoctrinating our children fromm hollywood to high school. We will not be silent. We will not just go away.

    @Jon I'm afraid I disagree. What it has to do with marriage is this: NOM exists to protect marriage from the vast evolution of the past 50 years to secular (and even religious) society. It was founded as a response to the attack on traditional marriage by those who are pushing to normalize the gay lifestyle by forcing religious institutions to conform to these new societal values... values that are anathema to this particular religious institution. Documenting all aspects of societal evolution in this area, and the encroachment it has on traditional Judeo/Christian values is not inciting anti-gay animus, it's simply keeping people informed of what is going on in the world around them... of which they may not be aware if they have chosen to eschew having sin and the world's secular humanist post-modern doctrine piped into their living rooms by avoiding daytime and evening television either en toto, or in terms of more selective viewing.

    I feel am given the impression that you are seeking to fire-up pro-post-modern-secular-humanist-anti-Christian-faith animus for reacting so inappropriately to what is an entirely appropriate and on-message post. If you don't agree with the goals of NOM and those who participate, then by all means, don't participate in an organization who's very genesis is based thereon.

    If the producers of GLEE get away with this, then it won't be long before other producers of other programs will do the same. It won't be long before homsexual couples get married on TV programs. So yes, we need to stand against what the producers of GLEE are doing. It has EVERYTHING to do with marriage.

    They will not be showing anything explicit. Any sex on these programmes (aimed at teenagers/young adults) is always implied, so all you sex-negative people can stop freaking out now. Also, so what if they're gay? This programme is not telling or encouraging young people to be gay, but rather presenting gay people in the same context as straight people, which is where they should be. All relationships and factions should be represented fairly. Good job Glee.

    Is this really the kind of pseudo reality we want to promote? How can we have a marriage society for supporting the begetting of children when we are encouraging a lifestyle of teenage Sodomy? We have lost our moral compass, I hope the GOP can and will fix this in 2012.

    It has everything to do with marriage. This show makes homosexuality look normal and natural. If it looks normal and natural, then there should be no problem with allowing gay marriage. Problem is, it's not natural, and it's not normal. 3% is not normal.

    So what? Only 10% of population is naturally left-handed. Bible says it's evil. Should we not show left-handed people on TV? Should we go back to slapping their hands with rulers?

    Good Job GLEE
    @BDW the lgbt community is not shoving anything in your face don't like the show don't watch it. Also you are sharing your beliefs which I do not agree with, but you do not see me whining that I have to see it. People get over yourselves I bet your parents were against interracial marriage too.... Homosexuals are not going anywhere there is no cure and we will be equal one day.

    Oh my BDW. Straight people gave themselves thousands of government benefits and rights from marriage, get married all the time, show it on TV, use laws to ban gays from marriage. But it's the oppressed gay people that are shoving it in our faces? You do see the hypocrisy right?

    So called Gay sex is dangerous, even with c o n d o m s. That keeps the so called gay population down. Does nature hate male same-sex sexual relations? Let's sue Nature.

    Go NOM now your antigay values are showing.

    Wren,there is no excuse for anyone (including homosexuals) NOT to be "antigay".The "gay" attitude toward homosexuality is totally incorrect and any action in accordance with it,accommodation of it,or uncritical presentation of it is harmful.(Noting again,I am a non-religious lifelong Democrat).

    This ridiculous show, along with "Modern Family" or any show featuring homos is never on the tv in my house and they never will be.

    Selina,I'm not a member of any religion or a believer in any book's claim of divine authorship...the responsibility of members of a sexually dimorphic species to uphold opposite-sex relationships as an exclusive norm to be adhered to by all has nothing at all to do with religion and needs to be upheld by a secular government and civil society.

    Any program which promotes sexual intimacy outside of marriage between a man and a woman does kids a gross disservice. But when has Hollywood ever passed up a chance to sacrifice children on the alter of $$ and ratings?

    All this moral outrage about a gay couple having sex -- and none at all about the straight, equally-unmarried, equally-teenaged couple mentioned in the same sentence...The straight couple isn't even noticed, but the gay couple doing the exact same thing is being "shoved down your throats."

    ...

    Nah -- I can"t see where anyone would get the idea that NOM's base is anti-gay...

    Patrick Hogan,persons being of the same sex takes sexual activity between them to a whole new level of wrongness.Ages of consent are a social construct but the obligation to restrict sexual partners to the sex opposite to one's own is part of the very nature of our species.Stop pretending there's any comparability!!

    I urge you all (including homosexuals) to read "Correct but not Politically Correct" by Frank Turek. It explains with statitistics, not religion as to why the homosexual lifestyle is harmful to not only themselves but to society. You can change your lifestyle, as many have. We all have desires and tendencies but that doesn't mean we shouldn't act on all of them. I will continue to pray for the LGBT community, NOM, Doma and our politicians.

    I feel that Glee is doing for gay kids what Star Trek did for black women: provide a positive role model.

    After all, Whoopi Goldberg was a kid when Trek came on and said "Momma! There's a black lady on TV and she ain't no maid!" Who knows. There might be some future gay/lesbian actor watching Glee saying "OMG, there's a gay boy on TV and he's not written like it's the 90s!"
