Okay since there is a huge problem with hypocrisy in the Glee fandom
Crisscolfer fandom let’s be real here, I think you should think about something before you start ranting.
IF you were one of the people upset at Chris’s US book signings when people were wearing Klaine stuff, and Starkid stuff, and pink sunglasses, and gave him letters to take to Darren, and Klaine artwork for him to see, and who wore Dalton blazers to the signings…
THEN I think you should get to have an opinion on people bringing Chris and Will stuff at these signings. (Note, none of the items has been JUST for Will… it’s been stuff for both Chris AND Will but the same cannot be said for the previous signings)
But if you were one of the people who brought Darren related stuff to the US signings, or you thought it was “sweet” or “totes okay” for Klainers or Crisscolfer shippers to make Chris’s US signings ALL about Darren Criss, Crisscolfer, and Klaine….
Then you don’t get an opinion
Because you’re being hypocrites.
And while I know you pride yourselves on being the best little group of hypocrites that you can possibly be…
You really need to shut the fuck up about it.
This is the latest claim by Darren’s apologists (sorry… supporters) to support Darren being considered for an Emmy nomination. That he’s courageous being a straight man who plays a gay character. Now to be fair, there was a time when playing a gay character could damage an actor’s career. But that is very, very long in the past now and it is not at all unusual to see A list actors being more than willing to play gay, bisexual or transsexual characters. Here is a nice list.
Tom Hanks (“Philadelphia”) - Played a gay lawyer who filed a lawsuit against his practice after he was fired for being gay and having AIDS. Besides playing a gay character, he also was courageous for playing a man with AIDS at a time when there were so much prejudice and discrimination against AIDS victims.
Antonio Banderas - Played the lover of Tom Hank’s character in “Philadelphia”.
Robin Williams (“The Birdcage”) - Most successful comedian in the US plays a gay man and owner of a drag club.
Hank Azaria (“The Birdcage”) - Also gets bonus points for playing gay Sir Lancelot in the Broadway production of “Spamalot”.
Matt Damon (“The Talented Mr. Ripley”) - Matt also gets noted for playing Liberace”s lover in “Behind the Candelabra” just this year.
Greg Kinner (“As Good As It Gets”) - Played a gay artist opposite a bigoted Jack Nicholson.
Hilary Swank (“Boys Don’t Cry”) - Won an Oscar for her portrayal of Brandon Teena, a transsexual teenager who was raped and murdered.
Charlize Theron (“Monster”) - Won an Oscar playing Aileen Wounus, a prostitute and lesbian who was executed for killing six men.
Cristina Riccii (“Monster”) - Played the lover of Charlize Theron’s character.
Patrick Swayze (“To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar”) - Played a drag queen who revitalizes a small town.
Wesley Snipes (“To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar”)
John Legizamo (“To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar”)
Hugo Weeving (“Pricilla Queen of the Desert”) - Played a gay drag queen who tries to reconnect with his biological son. This was the film that Too Wong Foo was based on.
Jake Gyllenhaal (“Brokeback Mountain”) - Played a cowboy who finds true love with another man.
Heath Ledger (“Brokeback Mountain”) - Played the lover of Jake Gyllenhaal’s character who is never able to get over his love for another man.
Philip Seymour Hoffman (“Capote”) - A biopic about one of the greatest American authors.
Sean Penn (“Milk”) - A biopic about gay icon and politician Harvey Milk who was murdered by a political rival.
James Franco (“Milk”)
Jim Carrey (“I Love You Phillip Morris”) - A comedy/biopic about a gay conman
Ewan McGregor (“I Love You Phillip Morris”) - Played the lover of Jim Carrey’s character. Also deserves special note for his role in “The Velvet Goldmine”, a British film about the glam rock era.
Michael Douglas (“Behind the Candelabra”) - Played the role of Liberace, who despite having a long line of young male lovers was never willing to come out of the closet, even after his death.
Julianne Moore (“The Kids are Alright”) - Played a married lesbian and mother struggling with the turmoil that meeting her children’s biological father brings to her family.
Annette Bening (“The Kids are Alright”) - Plays the wife of Julianne Moore’s character
Now this is just a small list of film actors. If we want to also include television actors, we have to list Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”), Nelsan Ellis (“True Blood”) and many, many others. With so many gay characters now in film and television and many of them played by straight actors who are much bigger names than Darren Criss, he is hardly unique or particularly “brave” to play a gay character.
What is brave to me? An actor who comes out at the very beginning of his career (at the age of 19) when being known as gay can certainly limit the roles you might be considered for but doesn’t let than stop him. A straight actor isn’t going to be punished for playing a gay character any longer, but an actor who’s know for being gay certainly can be.
This is disgusting. Go hide in a fucking hole you creep.
Wow, and he had enough time to ogle that other guy during the aerobics class?! Blein Anderdouche must really be able to multitask…
LOL Yeah, he’s really busy dreaming about Kurt, isn’t he?
that’s not creepy at all……………
Can we please have the 4th wall back? Please??
Yes, it’s creepy.
BUT it doesn’t seem like “Darren” and “Christopher” like each other all that much (or at least “Darren” doesn’t) since Isabelle tells him to “Be nice”.
Maybe in typical Ryan fashion, the ‘bone’ he throws ‘shippers’/’fans’ is poisoned?
(Although K(B)lainers/Crisscolfers never notice, even when they’re being mocked (See:Tina as K(B)lainers.))
Oh, I agree- I don’t think there’s any question that they’re not close. (“work friends” lol) Unfortunately, Ryan’s little digs like this only feed ridiculous fantasies, and Chris ends up having to deal with crap IRL- like the 12-hour deluge of tweets he got demanding he tweet Darren for his birthday.
the rage that would pulse through sherlock’s bloodstream at having the last name “anderson”
also i honestly think he would eventually kill blaine
“Blaine, I can tell by the angle of your headtilt that you have an undeserved sense of accomplishment, which is laughable considering you haven’t amounted to much of anything in your life, and judging by the appalled spark that just went up in your eyes, no one has ever bothered to tell you what a complete and utter waste of space you are. You likely have a boyfriend, one who you don’t deserve, but you aren’t aware of that because your own sense of egotism blinds you from what’s immediately apparent to any sane human being. Judging by the amount of product in your hair and the way you hold yourself upright, you blatantly make a somewhat admirable if pathetic effort to make yourself appear taller, which is ludicrous in its own right considering the extent of your vertical challenges make you seem a toddler, or maybe it’s the fact that you make those ridiculous faces that make you look like a petulant child. I cannot even fathom to understand how I ended up with you as a spawn; in fact, I’m so abysmally disappointed in the fate of human kind that I’ve decided a murder-suicide is the only way to go, in order to further stop myself from breeding again and producing another piteous attempt at a child.”
We’re Johnny Depp? Awesome.
I will be Johnny Depp over a cruise ship any day.
Wanna know why?
We get all the rum!
*breaks out the Diet Coke*
Screw that shit the Kadamaran is breaking awesome.
guys guys guys who is gonna write the Shipwrecked Kadam fic with Adam’s beautiful chest muscles exposed under his torn shirt because he ripped it to make a bandage for Kurt who got hurt in the wreckage so Adam has to carry him and….is it getting hot here on this tropical island or is it just me?
The Klaine ship reminds me of the titanic. Looks great but outside forces no one on the ship could control made it brake apart and ultimately sink. Also I love Johnny Depp!!!! :D
Ok fess up, who of you guys drank all the rum?! We need more!
Also, give me our little VIP Kadamaran over that impersonal, swanky THING that’s likely to topple over any day (and it’s not like that big thing will fit into all those secluded, cosy and romantic coves)… at least we have seen real adventure…. YO HO!
