ok so i’ve been thinking about this all day and there is just no way puck isn’t gay.
i know you think that so i shouldn’t try and convince you but you’re the only person i know who ships puckurt or thinks he’s anything other than straight so i wanted to ramble in your submit haha hello
ok so, puck is so gay.
at least four times in the series puck looks at finn and asks if he’s gay. two of these are more or less justified- when kurt’s singing a house is not a home and when finn’s getting into jesus mode. but the other two- when finn’s helping kurt on the football team and the time he says ‘i knew it, you’re in love with kurt.’ are just so… unneeded. it’s like everywhere puck looks, any immediate male/male interaction is gay.
i feel like his views are so skewed that he could totally be the type to cross his arms and shake his head and say nope, i’m not gay, everyone else is. if two guys talk, puck’s mind- so afraid of it’s own big gay secret, turns it into something that it’s not. the most platonic interactions are gay. unless it’s about himself. because he’s not gay.
and then there’s the little things he dismisses as gay, like the not washing below the belt scene. how terrified of thinking he’s gay can one person be if they’re not willing to touch themselves despite having one of the highest sex drives in ohio?
and speaking of sex drives… i mean, come on. reaffirming his masculine and heterosexual ways by sleeping with as many women as he can? i feel like i read that in an article on traits of closeted gay men.
but the big thing, the thing that hit me today and kind of bunched up all my thoughts and convinced me was this:
puck has nothing against gay people. he’s just afraid of gay.
i mean, his friendship with kurt speaks volumes. they’re not bffs or anything, but puck has a high level of care for kurt, and even offhandedly complemented blaine once. puck doesn’t treat kurt like he’s diseased or different or a piriah. kurt’s his bro, his boy. he’s never said a cruel thing to santana about her sexuality and i doubt he views brittany poorly. in the entire school, puck is a loyal, non judgmental member of the school’s gayest club
but in acceptance of the only gay couples he knows, shouldn’t that absolve at least some of his homophobia too?
it’s just so strange that, for as much as he doesn’t seem to think negatively of the gay couples around him, he’s still making homophobic quips this season. he’s still very scared of the idea of being gay, even though he’s surrounded by proof that gay couples are no different than straight ones
it’s almost as though that fear, the driving force for him to continually label things gay and ask other people if they’re gay or avoid everyday tasks that he deems gay comes from somewhere other than peer pressure and the way most teenage jocks view homosexuality
somewhere more internal
anon…this is beautiful. Thank you for submitting this, thank you <3
The anon makes some good points but I would just like to say that whilst I don’t think Puck is straight either, saying that ‘Puck is gay’ is very dodgy because that means you’re completely disregarding his previous experiences with girls.
I’m not saying he *can’t possibly* be gay but it’s highly unlikely judging on how much he seems to enjoy sexual experiences with females. Besides, sexuality and sexual preference are not binary.
I’m not going against any of the points made by the anon, just wanted to say that I definitely agree with Puck isn’t straight but you can’t really label him as gay either.
