Everyone’s talking about how last year’s prom was so gay it’ll be hard to beat this year. They mention things like the montage of gay tears and all of prom royalty being gay and two gay boys dancing to dancing queen being sung by a lesbian as if all of this was good and should be repeated or exceeded.
It wasn’t gay in a good way. It was oppression times fifty and the night turning out mostly okay despite the most homophobic attempts to the contrary. I don’t want anything like that this year. I want none of it. None.
You know what I want? Kurt and Blaine - and Brittany and Santana, sure, why not - slow dancing. Not to freaking “Dancing Queen” which is more fast than slow, either; an actual, syrupy, ballad of a slow dance. With arms around each other and looking at each other and moving at the same time. You know, like any other couple. I want them slow dancing and enjoying themselves. They don’t even have to be the focus of the song, either. As long as I can see them with my naked eye in real time on my tv, I’m happy. None of this ‘hey, look, they totally held hands - I gif-ed it!’ stuff, either. Something that is two boys visibly slowdancing on national television during their prom.
That’s all I want. Is that really so much to ask?
