no but if Adam Shankman had directed the Klaine makeout
And what we would see on FOX

still confused as to why Klaine was more Klaine before Klaine was actually Klaine
Because when Klaine wasn’t actually Klaine, then they weren’t threatening because there was no Klaine. So they could be as Klaine as they wanted because in the end they weren’t really Klaine so audiences didn’t have to think about things like Klisses and Klex and all other Klaine-y things because Klaine didn’t exist.

Look Glee, when all four of you characters in same-sex relationships have bedroom sets (three of which were used this season) you can’t use the excuse “same-sex couples don’t kiss as much in public” as an excuse for not letting your same-sex couples kiss. We’ve seen the straight couples making out on their beds. There is no reason to not show the same sex couples doing that. The “they can’t kiss in public” is a bullshit excuse for not showing queer affection. Especially when EVERY SINGLE BRITTANA KISS (all three of them) has been in a very public location.
And asking the actors about this double standard is shitty as fuck because they can’t do anything other than give answers that will probably piss people off. Like what just happened to Chris.
Not only that, but if that’s what you’re going for, freaking say it. Play off that moment in Asian F. Have them have an actual conversation about it. Have Kurt grouse about how sure, Santana just grabs Brittany and kisses her in public now, but he and Blaine are still in hand-holding territory. Have Brittany ask how come Santana doesn’t cuddle with her as much in the choir room now that they’re actually and publicly dating as they did when they were secretly not-dating. Because I don’t think people have a problem with that as a reason out of hand, though it can come off as really contrived (*coughModernFamilycoughcough*…or the gay couple on Smash very clearly, statedly Not. Having. Sex. because of Beliefs.). But the point at which you have bedroom sets, or you have the characters in a place where it’s just them and their best friends and everyone else can kiss but they can’t, that logic starts to sound disingenuous.
And I’m sorry, but of three Klaine kisses off the top of my head, one was in the middle of a common room and one was on a stage on a night where there had been a ton of people around. It’s not like they were too afraid to kiss “in public” either of those times. And for scenes where things were filmed but have clearly been cut - things that weren’t in the school, for example, like say the Sugar Shack party or TFT - it doesn’t pass the laugh test.
Though I agree - the actors are in a no-win situation. If they complain, it’s a big deal. If they agree, it’s a big deal. If they brush it off with a joke, it’s a bigger deal because you have a bunch of people not getting that they were kidding (especially with Chris having as dry a sense of humour as he does).Source: butterscotchcreys
Yes, Ryan Murphy, some fans wanted full-on naked making out. Most of us realized this isn’t Queer as Folk and just wanted a sex scene where the characters actually touched and didn’t have their pelvises so far apart on the bed it looked like they might fall off if they moved wrong.
The fact that you can’t tell the difference makes me want to stop blaming the network and other writers and directors I can’t stand, and start blaming everything on you, personally. Because I’ve been defending you for like two years now - how it’s not your fault when background touches get cut, how you had nothing to do with the box scene or the Sugar Shack kiss getting pretty blatantly left on the cutting room floor, to say nothing of all the sex scene portions Darren and Chris filmed that we never saw. When others would use your name as shorthand for anything they disliked on the show, from plots to specific one-liners, I was always quick to point out that other people were at fault. (Usually I blamed Ian, tbh.) But with this one quote, that’s done. Because with one quote you made very clear that you know we’re not happy and you find nothing of value in our complaints. You made perfectly clear that you are involved in decisions about what to show or not and that you’re happy with what we’ve seen - and that in your mind, what we have seen so far is “equal” to straight couples and anything else is asking for special treatment.
We may not be getting the box scene still, but at least we’re getting Santa Baby again
I so look forward to watching the show’s lesbian character flirt with a bunch of boys for the benefit of the asshole who outed her.
Not only that, but we already got it - woo, yay Fox, including an ‘extra’ that was released the day after the episode aired. -_-
(Though for the record, we were never “promised” the box scene. Fans started jumping up and down saying “Maybe it’ll be in the DVD extras!” when it became clear Fox wasn’t going to release it the way they had the Santa Baby scene, no one in any position of any quasi- or actual authority ever said they were so much as entertaining the notion.)Source: platypus--bear
so in “Extraordinary Merry Christmas” they cut:
- a scene between the gay couple where they mention they had sex, talk about getting married, confess their love for one another, and one of them pretty much does a dry run of his wedding vows PLUS multiple little overtly romantic and physical moments
- a moment between the couple where both of them are Asian
- a cheek kiss between the lesbian couple
- a conversation about the interracial couple
- multiple repetitive scenes with the straight white couple
- a promotion of an organization known to be homophobic
I’m sensing a pattern here.
Oh, but don’t forget - they left in plenty of gay moments. You know, like when the two men shared a chalet! …As “holiday roommates” while dancing 10 feet apart at all times. -_-Source: butterscotchcreys
“To kiss you whenever and wherever you want”
…Yeah, I can see why FOX people didn’t like that idea out there.
To me, I think it highlights the fact that they’re just blind as hell to it all. I don’t think they realize Finchel makes out in every damn episode because it’s not news or unusual. They’re too busy being self-righteous about how great they handle all these delicate gay issues. -_-
The posts that blame the actors confuse the fuck out of me. In particular when talking about Klaine (which I use here mostly because that’s who I follow interviews from), just because…have they seen the two of them? Or listened to them in interviews? They’re not uncomfortable showing or filming affection. Or even when there’s a little hesitance - i.e. Chris saying he was ‘scared shitless’ about the sex scene…they still filmed a LOT more intimacy than they showed.Source: timemcflies
