Weekly Gleek: You Are the Alpha Gay

notices Quinn’s melancholy; Teen Jesus is there to help her talk through her feelings about physical therapy, which doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. He offers to go with her to her next appointment, and Quinn is immediately dubious—why would he want to go? Why does he even care? In his adorably straightforward and innocent way, Joe says he cares about her; but also that being a Christian, to him, is about actions, not talk. Plus, he’ll let her wiggle his dreads for good luck.

Surprisingly, I actually really like Joe now that we’ve gotten to know him a bit; and I like him with Quinn as a potential couple. Bet you never thought I’d actively endorse a heteronormative coupling for Lady Q, didja? (Unless you thought, like Brittany, that Joe was Jo, and that she’s very pretty…even if she doesn’t shave her armpits). The truth is, Joe is exactly the kind of guy organized religion needs these days as a champion; and at the same time he brings out the best in Quinn. He’s just so devastatingly authentic; he’s not going through the motions of being a good Christian, or regurgitating lines he was fed as a kid. He honestly ponders (and when necessary, wrestles with) every new situation or moral dilemma, not for the sake of appearing to be a model Christian youth, but because he honestly just wants to be a righteous person and be square with his creator. Which, ultimately, is what Quinn wants too; and now that the chips are down and she’s no longer in a position to just “go through the motions,” as it were, she can actually meet him there and see eye to eye with someone who cares deeply about the same things she does. Plus, they really do have chemistry. You think the Faberry Nation would’ve amassed such huge numbers if Quinn had ever actually looked like she was enjoying heterosexual intimacy?


 Ewwwww, boys are gross!

All things being equal, I have to say this is the first time I’ve ever believed that Quinn was genuinely attracted to a guy, and not just working him as a requisite status symbol. It certainly seemed like the first time she’s ever expressed an interest in making contact with an actual boner. Even though I know it won’t have any

I'm pretty sure the shop is

I'm pretty sure the shop is called Between the Sheets because it sells sheet music, not vinyl. Kurt definitely looked like he was looking at sheet music of his song selections. 

I thought the whole "I'm ignoring you because I can't stand being without you" story from both Burt & Blaine was ridiculous. Do people actually do this?

i think they do...!

yeah, I'm pretty sure avoidance is a legitimate thing. it's like a relative of passive-agression, when you just avoid confronting the thing that's making you sad (in this case, the fact that your darling kurt will soon be broadway bound). if only burt and blaine had gotten the super-secret season 4 script that explains how the graduating seniors will all be kept aroud next year...! ;p

Happy spring vacation!

SQUEE!!! "I get so emotional"! ...makes me think about dancing to Whitney with my bff in her bedroom so many years ago.

And, poor Quinn...

dancing to whitney at age 7 :)

toooootally. I'm pretty sure my first "acting out a music video" memory is of how will I know at my camp's talent show with my little 2nd grade clique. I still remember those high side ponytails with glittery silver scrunchies Smile

...and hey, no need to feel bad for quinn on the boner front now-- looks like she's finally got one she likes!
