No, your actual job in the situation being referenced was to take quick and effective steps to protect Kurt, a minor student under your care, from being assaulted. Which none of you - with the exception of Sue Sylvester - ever managed to do. Your job was to promote an educational environment in which homophobia and general bullying was not implicitly encouraged. Which you never managed to do. Your job, as teachers, was and is to help make your school a safe space where all of your students can learn without feeling like their lives are threatened. “Knowing” or somehow “predicting” that Karofsky was going to attempt suicide is not the goddamned point.
AND WILL, WHO IS THIS “WE” YOU ARE REFERRING TO, BECAUSE I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER YOU SPENDING A SEASON AND A HALF TURNING YOUR BACK WHEN KURT WAS GETTING THROWN INTO DUMPSTERS AND AGAINST LOCKERS, YOU REVISIONIST ASSHOLE. FUCK.
HE DID HURT KURT. For fuck’s sake, it’s like they don’t watch their own show and I think that’s what pisses me off more than anything else.
I literally cannot with how angry this scene made me. Because Glee pretty much swept the entire failure of the faculty to do their fucking job in order to bring Kurt back to McKinley via the Bully Whips, a.k.a, the ACTUAL WORST plot decision in an entire chain of horrible plot decisions.
And, to accompany this, the ONE example of an institutional setting that managed to effect an environment that protects kids from bullying, Dalton, has been systematically dismantled for no other reason than to protect Sebastian from reprisal so that he could have his Karofsky induced moment of clarity.
LOL FUCK YOU, GLEE. YOU ARE NOT HELPING THE WAY YOU THINK YOU ARE HELPING.
