The episode of Glee which aired on Tuesday, opened with a steamy girl on girl scene between cheerleaders Brittany and Sanatana, and it has people up in arms!

Do you think Glee went too far on their Oct. 12 episode? The monitoring group Media Research Center says the family friendly show has been turned into “a disgusting gay teen sex romp.”
Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center says based on this latest episode, the shows creator Ryan Murphy “spends his days fantasizing about teen girls ‘scissoring’ on the bed in what the media tell us is a family-friendly show.”

The necking session was pretty brief, but it may have pushed the envelope for the shows 8 pm time slot and young audience — what do YOU think?

Big whoop. We see hetero couples do that and more all the time. Why are people having kittens because two girls are doing it?

Oh my god! I can´t believe they´re doing this. I seriously can´t find words it´s so ridiculous. It was barely a kiss! While I wouldn´t watch the show without Kurt, I think Britanny and Santana were really quite cute. It was nothing compared to the snogging-scenes Finn and Rachel get. Which by the way, share absolutely NO chemistry(in my opinion). Glee has great musical numbers, many likeable characters and lots of romances. And while Britanny and Santana weren´t romantically involved, per se, human emotions are complex. I think it´s great that Glee is exploring deeper relationships between people, even though I´m sure they only thought of it as a mild joke(or something like it). What if they see this now and go back in evolution? This is the 21st century, people. You don´t get away with bigotry anymore.

While it was pretty mild, I don’t think that’s appropriate for a “family friendly” show. Especially the reference to “scissoring.” A curious kid might look that up, and I see no reason why they need to know what that is. I don’t think a lot of the earlier scenes with other couples are appropriate either. While sexual activity is a part of many high schooler’s experiences, I think the show might be starting to give the impression that everyone in high school does it, which just isn’t true. almost every main character has had an intense makeout/ sex scene. It’s good that the show addresses these issues, but maybe they don’t need to focus on this overtly sexual stuff all the time. For me personally, while I relate to some of the sexual issues they bring up, I identify more with a lot of the day to day issues. I love Glee, but I hope that each episode doesn’t become completely full of lesbian make out scenes and people losing their virginity.

First of all, if you were a glee fan you KNEW this was coming. It’s been talked about endlessly all summer, and if it was going to be an issue for you then you already would have known about it by now.

Second, they didn’t even kiss. They were laying on a bed, their lips didn’t touch – this ISN’T a big deal WHATSOEVER.

Grey’s Anatomy can have gay and lesbian couples, as can literally HALF of the shows on network television, but Glee can’t have two girls LAYING together and kissing on the neck for UNDER ten seconds?! That’s RIDICULOUS.

PS, Glee is one of the highest rated shows right now. You probably wouldn’t want to push its buttons considering they are the ones paying your bills.

…. um what? Did no one take any notice when in the last season they sang the song Like A Virgin by Madonna and they were all basically about to have sex? So its ok for a guy and a girl to basically make out on tv but not two girls that DIDN’T ACTUALLY KISS?
The people how are labeling this very short scene a “disgusting gay teen sex romp” are quite obviously homophobes. Well those homophobes better get ready because apparently there will be an actual gay KISS with Kurt some time in a future episode.

Glee should not have a “young audience” anyway. From episode 1 anyone who has the capacity to form sentences could see that it is not made for kids. Ryan Murphy created “Nip Tuck”, what are people expecting?

People are always welcome to turn in off and Glee has had WAY more explicit scenes than this one.

I think that people are over reacting. Kids theses days are exposed to things far worse then a girl kissing another girl on the neck and the fact that the scene was brief and not that in depth really shows even more how much people are over reacting.

And nobody even mentions the fact that the entire point of the Britnay plotline of the episode is that she doesn’t care about sex and uses it as currency to get what she wants. It wasn’t some shock lesbian scene thrown in to titillate, they were making a larger point about sex and how it can mean different things to different people.

This episode presented s with two bed scenes, Brittany/Santana and Brittany/Artie. The fact that the gay one gets noticed while the straight one was pretty much ignored is homophobia at its finest.

How people always find an excuse to cover up their homophobia is pathetic.

Pathetic. I really don’t have anything else to add. Just, pathetic.

Oh yeah, and Ryan Murphy’s gay. I don’t think he’s going to fantasize about women—even ones as amazing as HeMo and Naya.

Then I think there should be no “disgusting straight sex insinuations” as well.

Double Standards

Posted at 7:46 PM on October 15, 2010  

” Girl On Girl Action Called ‘Disgusting Gay Teen Sex Romp!’” – grow up. It’s homophobia like this that causes teens to get negative impressions of homosexuals, and look what we get – children as young as 12 committing suicide. I literally had to chuckle at this “Ryan Murphy “spends his days fantasizing about teen girls ‘scissoring'” I highly doubt Ryan Murphy spends his days imagining GIRLS. So some necking between two ladies is unacceptable but the whole “Like A Virgin” scenes were fine and dandy… OK then.

Not a kid's show

Posted at 7:21 PM on October 15, 2010  

Glee is not a kid’s show. It’s a show for teenagers and young adults. I don’t know why people are complaining about having to ban their 8-year-olds from watching Glee. If you don’t want your kid to watch Glee, the don’t let them. It’s not for such a young demographic anyway. 2 things that they show consistently on Glee: music and relationships. There is a lot of sex in general on the show which isn’t necessary appropriate for children.

What a homophobic double standard. Why does nobody talk about Jacob masturbating naked in the library? Or Finn climaxing in a hot tub? Or Puck pressuring and succeeding in getting Quinn to have sex with him? And the Like A Virgin musical number where Santana devirginizes Finn? Or how Brittany devirginizes Artie in this very same episode? There is SO much sexuality on Glee that nobody ever really complains about. Why? Because it’s all heterosexual.

Brittany and Santana didn’t even kiss on the lips. It was a very quick and innocuous scene that was completely tame. Okay, the scissoring comment was a little much, but more sexually explicit things have been said on network television. People need to get over it. I, for one, really hope that they continue with the Brittany/Santana storyline because they have one of the most complex and unique relationships on television today.

And yet you allowed him to watch sex scenes including straight people up until that point. The Madonna episode alone had at least 3 sex scenes. So far, the show has shown Rachel, Puck, Finn, Quinn, Santana and a few others in suggestive situations on beds, and yet THIS scene is the deal breaker? Sorry, but that IS homophobic. Brittany and Santana didn’t even kiss on the mouth and the straight characters all did in their sex scenes so your kid should have stopped watching awhile ago.

to be honest I doubt you even have a kid, but if you have a kid that is too young to see that scene on Glee than you’re not a very responsible parent if he “loves the glee show” and has been watching it regularly. Glee has had a lot more explicit scenes than that one in the past.

Glee is for teenagers and young adults and is about the issues that teenagers have in high school. If you think your son is to young to watch a scene where two girls didn’t even kiss on the lips, then he shouldn’t have been watching the show at all. And it is very homophobic of you to do that and possibly even bad parenting, because he may get curious as to what you didnt want him to watch and search it on the internet and would find things that are much much worse.

Theres nothing wrong about it.
You have hetrosexual people making out and talking about sex all the time on tv so why should it be so wrong if it’s two people of the same sex talking about sissoring?

It’s not a kids show, which is what people tend to forget. It’s TV-14, young children should not be watching. People are idiots these days. Also, there’s nothing wrong with two females making out, how is it any different from a male and a female doing the same thing? Oh yeah, and I highly doubt Ryan Murphy fantasizes about that considering that he’s a gay man. Also, we really shouldn’t blame RM for anything in this episode because he neither wrote nor directed it.

It seems Ryan Murphy are exploiting gay relationship far too much. Well, knowing Ryan Murphy is, what do you expect! Me, personally doesn´t have any problem about it, sooner or later this kind of relationship will be just ordinary. But it takes a lot of time and work introducing this relationships to minors. The scenes for me is still very inappropriate, maybe if they just lying down in bed while holding hands that´s much better start than a kissing scene. My only problem are the children, it´s too early for them to be exposed in this matter considering Glee show time slot are showing very early where children and their parents are watching the show together.

to quote Helen Lovejoy
“Won’t somebody PLEASE think of the children?!”
get over it.
The kissing was barely kissing, more just pecks on the neck, and as for the scissoring comment? I doubt children have any idea what that word actually means. I don’t really see what the problem is…

Minors shouldn’t be watching the show in the first place, it is not for their age group. The show is for teenagers and young adults.
And what about the duet that Rachel and Finn sang? It was about two people having sex and they were dressed as a preist and a nun/school girl. It was very innappropriate but no one has said anything about it.
Also don’t blame Ryan Murphy for it, he only created the show. He didn’t write or direct this episode.

Love the show. Don’t think there’s anything wrong with them showing girls kissing, since they show girls/guys kissing, and it’s a realistic thing, but the comment about “it’s a nice change from scissoring” had me in shock. These kids are supposed to be what, sophomores in high school? It just seemed inappropriate!

Sorry, typo in my comment…I meant to say young men and women who happen to be GAY. We are still all human. We come into this world the same way and leave the same. And science is proving more and more we all share the same genetic history traced back to the same first human.

It’s two teenagers doing what many do. If this was a boy and a girl there wouldnt be a problem. This is real life and it’s time young men and women who happen to be stop being made to feel like their flawed or inadequate based on archaic and dogmatic religous beliefs.
