No, Chris Colfer Didn’t Make It Through School Without Being Bullied

What about Chris Colfer gives it away that he’s gay? Better question: What about Chris Colfer gives it away that he was picked on in school?

The 20-year-old actor doesn’t have to worry much about classmates taunting him anymore, but through high school Colfer says he was victimized. And how did he get through it? By staying focused on his goals and going “full steam ahead.”

That’s, uh, lovely?

Not that Chris is really prescribing his solution as the panacea for bullied kids, picked on because they’re perceived as gay or otherwise, but keeping your head down and hiding in the shadows sounds like a miserable way to get through school. Might is also, sadly, be the most realistic?
