My brief random thoughts about Tuesday's episode. If I didn't discuss gender fluidity and sexual orientation, I would be completely remiss.

I didn't watch Glee last night and continued writing some episode 3.05 reaction fic today. Except that I don't know if I will ever post it, because I don't know if I'll continue it, because Blaine is making me so depressed! I mean, I know the episode ends in happiness, but that kid is soooo lacking in the self-worth department at times throughout the episode that I am just beside myself.

I don't know if self-worth is the right word. It's just that Blaine thinks he has to be what other people want him to be, and sometimes forgets that he has his own internal dignity that doesn't depend on how many people like him or approve of his choices.

Blaine, please, get to an Alateen meeting already before you make me cry!

In the non-Glee, cheerful upside, this is Trans Awareness Week and I'm currently reading an awesome book called Gender Born, Gender Made by psychologist Diane Ehrensaft. It's about raising children who don't fall into neat categories in the binary gender system. I highly recommend it whether you are a parent of gender-variant kids or not.
