HELP GLEE MADE MY SISTER BISEXUAL
Auntie Sparknotes, 20 February 2014:Hi Auntie, So I’ll just cut right to the chase: my 13-year old sister (I’m 15) recently came out to me and my Mom as being bisexual. It was literally right in the middle of an argument, when I was chastising her because she had been extremely rude to me as of late for no apparent reason. She then told us that since she had been holding the secret of her sexuality in, she was being rude to me and my mom. My immediate reaction was that it’s total bullcrap. She’s never dated anybody before, never kissed anyone (she even admitted that), nothing. So I find it very hard to believe that she could think that she also has crushes on girls. Because if she’s never actually had a romantic relationship with anybody, guys or girls, then how could she know anything about her sexuality? I’m also dubious because she’s recently been watching a lot of Glee, and she’s the kind of person that gets really influenced by media. So she comes out to us right around the time that she’s been obsessing over a show that features a gay couple? Not necessarily a coincidence, in my opinion. It’s not like me or my family has anything against homosexuality, as my uncle is a married gay man, and we love him. It’s just the fact that my sister is so young. Also, we live in a tightly-knit conservative community, so I’m worried what other people will think of her, and as an extension, me. My sister is the kind of person that trusts people that consistently stab her in the back, so that’s why I’m worried. What should I do Auntie?
Dear What Should I Do?,
What a loving sister you are, to look out for your woefully mislead sibling whose mind has been warped by Glee's gay propaganda machine! So many people could potentially stab her in the back, and here you are to protect her from all those other back-stabbing people who could stab her in the back.
Your sister’s sexuality is up for grabs, and only you can force her to see that her desires are as you say they are; would that she not be manipulated by insidious outside forces! Only you can prevent your sister from the dangers of a society that ostracizes and marginalizes people who don’t identify as heterosexual and, most importantly, their siblings.
Everyone knows that no one can declare their sexual orientation until they have had several meaningful, long-lasting, sexually active relationships with other humans; this is why publications like Tiger Beat have struggled to stay afloat for decades.
Ask your sister to join you in watching hetero-focused media—that is, if you can manage to find any in this gay-centric world we’re living in—and see whether some time with a little-known ABC documentary program called The Bachelor will turn her into the straight person your social life needs her to be.
I love the idea that Glee somehow made her sister bisexual when Glee thinks all bisexuals are indecisive, greedy cheaters.Via here's that bad advice you were hoping for
