Glee‘s Ryan Murphy Would Never Make a Big Deal Out of 2 Gay Character Kissing

I hate it on TV shows, and there’s one show that I won’t name right now, where it’s like ‘Why aren’t these character kissing? Don’t they have a child?’ That’s ridiculous to me. I don’t understand it. … If I did it on my show, I would just have them do it in every scene and not have a big deal about it. I don’t think that you have to announce a very special episode. Weren’t they doing it back on Roseanne? It is just so outdated and archaic to me and as a gay man, I would never do that. I would make it very organic and do it several times and not make it a stunt

—Ryan Murphy, the big gay creator of big gay show Glee, about a certain competing network’s show that isn’t showing the gay characters smooch. Murphy’s own musical show is planning its first lesbian kiss; Glee filmed the episode yesterday. Does this also mean we’re going to see Kurt get some boy action? [via]

    Yeah yeah. I’ll buy it when Kurt’s locking lips with a guy “every scene”, until then this is all talk. He hasn’t even had his first boyfriend yet. Of course the pseudo-lesbians who date and sleep with guys are going to get to kiss before Kurt. What a surprise. TV lesbians are bisexual playthings for heterosexual males masturbatory fantasies. And this was written by a gay male lambasting another show for excluding a gay kiss.

    Go progress!

    PS: I had no idea John Malkovitch created Glee…….. :-p

    Sorry, but I’m calling “douchebag” on Ryan Murphy.

    He has a lot of gall dissing a show whose quality is so much more consistent and, frankly, higher than his little hot mess weekly karaoke revue.

    The PDA controversy is such a tempest in a teapot (and how gay is that reference?) that it barely warrants bandwidth to discuss.

    Let’s instead talk about the excessive use of Auto-Tune on the show “Glee” and how it makes the actors sound like automatons…!!

    Someone sounds jealous of another shows ratings..just sayin…

  • alan brickman

    modern family has better writing..and pushing the jocks who also sing and dance is a bit shameful….

    @Hilarious: I am so *tired* of people hating on Brittany and Santana. Like just because they are conventionally feminine/pretty cheerleaders who have, yeah, also hooked up with dudes, their entire MUST be fake slash for the sole purpose of getting straight guys’ attention?

    Yeah well maybe it is (and if so, that’s their prerogative) but probably it isn’t, and I don’t see why we can’t just be happy that we get to see two girls being cute together and displaying pretty real-seeming affection towards one another instead of having it all reserved for the str8 folks.

    I don’t even understand why you would denigrate them as “pseudo-lesbians” when neither has ever claimed to *be* a lesbian. Like, fun fact, bisexual women do exist, and they are real people, not just people to be derided for making lesbians look bad.

    Sigh. Anyway, weird quote considering there haven’t been any gay kisses on Glee yet, also I like Modern Family so whatevs.

    Bryan Murphy = nasty little man whose show cannot compare to Modern Family in writing, is already on a preachy track, and will flame out early a year or so from now. Kurt is Bryan Murphy and please don’t insult us all by giving him a ‘jock’ boyfriend. Fantasy is one thing, but please…he’s really good at commenting on others.

  • jeffree

    Anyone else wonder why Hilarious is as obssessed with “female bisexuals” as Jason is? Hmmmmmmmmmm.

  • jason

    Ryan Murphy is very hypocritical. He’s had a supposedly gay guy on Glee and yet he has failed to show him kissing another man. Now we hear that he’s going for the safe confines of the lesbian kiss, not the gay male kiss. Ryan, you’re a massive hypocrite – go fuck yourself.

  • Cam

    This is a bit hypocritical, because of this….

    why have we met nearly every other set of parents on “GLEE” except for Rachel’s two fathers? They are supposed to be incredibly indulgent and over protective of her, yet when she was attacked by the kids from the other choir we never see them in school raising a fuss? When Mr. Shoop cuts her from solos because he’s being pissy they never show up to argue?

    Bash Modern Family all you want (Rightfully so)for their homophobia at first, and now their overeaction by having a “Very Special Gay Ki8ss Episode” But until I see you trotting out Rachel’s two dads, or see Kirt and some guy making out, I don’t want to hear it from you Mr. Murphy.

    What do you expect from an autotuned-melisma-soaked “Fame” ripoff that has done nothing but reinforce gay stereotypes? And black stereotypes. And Asian stereotypes. And disabled stereotypes. And does them in such an unfunny way as to make me long for the razor-sharp wit and cutting social commentary of “Small Wonder”. And for the gay male kiss, even the one-and-a-half-feet-in-the-grave daytime soaps are ahead of you.

    As for the autotune: even Lucy didn’t need this much, ahem, technological assistance in “Mame”!

    @jason: I’m with you. This guy’s a douchebag and a hack.

    I would be more inclined to watch Modern Family if it focused only on the gay couple and left out the other two families.

    So happy to see that finally, FINALLY, my gay brothers have discovered what a piece of hypocritical trash “Glee” is. Murphy is coasting along on his fame, preaching to other what he won’t do himself, and for a VERY simple reason: “Glee” is a cash-cow with a certain demographic group that will buy its crappy CDs, go to its awful arena shows and now, purchase its idiotic books. Murphy and his network do not want to upset any of those people who plunk their money down. And because he now has that movie “Eat, Love, Pray” coming out (no pun intended), he has to play nice by the Hollywood rules.
    The media have bought so much into this garbage. Because he worked years ago at the magazine “Entertainment Weekly”, now he gets weekly updates, comments, articles, interviews on his show. Editor and fellow celebrity brownnoser celebrity homo Jess Cagle must be good pals with Murphy, a nasty, creepy person from what I have heard from people that have known him.
    You really want to change the rules of the game Murphy? Invite your Hollywood colleagues Matt Bomer, Anderson Cooper, Zach Quinto and so many others to come out proudly and say so, and to demand that agents, producers, directors and executives who are gay come out. They are the ones with the power to change what what we don’t like about gays on TV. They are responsible. Stay comfortably in the closet, or somewhat in and out, and this is the crap you get.
    I’ll watch “Modern Family” and its characters any day over this clown’s “work.”

  • Hilarious

    @Simon: Stop putting words in my mouth. I made the point very clear and I wasn’t hating on two of my favorite characters on the show thank you very much.

    I’ll spell it out for you slowly:

    Ryan Murphy is bashing one show for excluding a gay male kiss when his show doesn’t even have a gay male couple. What he does have though is what has been created for straight males to wank to for many years now and that is the irony of his rant.

    Hop down off my dick. Thanks.
