The dialogue that prompted this blog and movement for queer visibility has always been about both couples, because both queer couples are suffering from a lack of focus this season. There was no moment when we suddenly said, “Hey! We should “drag Brittana” into this to increase the credibility of us asking for more Klaine!”
That Glee is sexist in its treatment of female characters is obvious. But that is not Glee’s only problem, and there is nothing wrong with focusing on something else (queer erasure in this case). We are not forcing anyone to be involved in what we’re doing (though everyone is welcome to join in!), and we are not stopping anyone else from taking up a cause they deem worthy of their time.
The fact is, many of us ship both Klaine and Brittana and would like to see more focus on the couples we love. But that’s not what this blog is about. It’s about giving the canon queer couples on Glee equal representation to that of canon straight couples. Many of us here like both Klaine and Brittana, some of us only ship one but support the other’s right to parity, and some of us like Brittana more than Klaine (if you can believe it)!
They also believe that most klaine fans are tween girls and therefore dont want klaine for righteous pro-gay visibilty issues.
Not only is this kind of thinking sexist (and therefore ironic, considering the source), but it also erases the many people who are not straight tween girls who ship Klaine and/or are involved in this project.
