Remember when everyone gave Kurt dirty looks for “cheating” on Blaine with Chandler? Remember how Blaine had sex with Eli C and all of New Directions acted as if he was the victim in the Klaine breakup? Yeah, that’s that shit I don’t like.
Reactions to Kurt’s “cheating” aside (which, honestly, I think people put too much stock in because it was a performance scene and I don’t think the exaggerated-ness of it was meant to be taken that literally- the writers often create extra drama for the performances so that they fit accordingly with the songs), how exactly did “all of ND act like Blaine was the victim in the break up”?
The only ND member who did drift somewhat in that direction was Tina, and, well, it was made pretty clear she was just a little biased thanks to her crush on Blaine. But everyone else, Sam included.. none of them acted like he was the victim. Not villainizing him the way some viewers seemed to want them to do doesn’t equal treating him like the victim.
He made a huge mistake, faced appropriate consequences (namely Kurt obviously breaking up with him and no longer trusting him- all 100% understandable and fair), and at most the other NDers acknowledged that it had been a tough time for Blaine as well, and Sam, without excusing what he did, encouraged him to stop beating himself up about it and accept that all he could do from there on out was forgive himself and work to make things right (none of which he could do if he was too busy hating himself for the mistake he made).
That’s about it. No more, no less. No one went “there there, poor thing, I can’t believe Kurt broke up with you!”. At most they simply acknowledged what was true— that it was a difficult time for him— without pretending that what he did was cool or okay.
So I just really don’t quite get this argument. Now if some of the FANS were acting like Blaine was the victim (which I personally disagree with just as much as those totally villainizing him, for the record), that’s another story. But as far as the characters go… the only one who came anywhere near treating him like the victim was Tina, and again, it’s hardly like the show was suggesting she was approaching that from a clear headed, logical standpoint. They were pretty clear in showing that that whole rant at Kurt was her jealousy talking and nothing more.
