Quinn, who has been through the ringer for the better part of three seasons. Quinn, who got pregnant at sixteen, who got kicked out of her home, disowned by her parents, went all-out nuts from losing everything from her status in school to her child. Quinn has been abused from the very start of Glee; that’s the status quo.
So, for Kurt to flat-out tell her that her pain doesn’t add up to Dave’s pain—really? Really, Kurt, you unbelievable sanctimonious dick? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I usually like Kurt a lot, but the writers have this tendency of giving him these moments of just…really? The bisexuals-don’t-exist bit was bad, and this…is at least on par.
Yes, being outed is very, very bad. Being abused for it is fucking awful. It is godawful, and it should never happen to anyone, because no one deserves that abuse. But who is Kurt—who is anyone—to stand by and tell someone else that their pain isn’t valid?
As someone who helped her best friend through a teenage pregnancy I found Kurt’s comment tonight very upsetting. I wouldn’t trade being a lesbian for that experience any day but I know for a FACT that there were many nights when she would have preferred to have been in my shoes.
