WELL I stopped watching Glee a while ago, but I've been informed of the latest episode and here is what I have to say on the matter: do not fucking talk to me about Glee because I do not fucking want to hear it. The odds are you will come across as downright offensive and I will hate you.

WHAT HAPPENED IN GLEE or is it too rage-inducing

I don't watch it because it always sounds like "white people have plot; everyone else is backdrop" and also, Will strikes me as a character I will hate with so much fiery passion. HE HAS A EEEEEVIL SHREW WIFE, RIGHT, that's why we're supposed to feel sympathy for him?

Yeah, I stopped watching it for some of what you just said. The problems faaar outweighed the happy fun songtimes.

There was a flashback where Quinn and Puck were making out, he pressuring her to have sex and she saying no. He told her to "have another wine cooler" and then continued pressuring her into sex, to which she reluctantly agreed. To me, this does not show enthusiastic mutual consent, and the presence of alcohol adds an implication of drug-assisted sexual assault. I found the scene uncomfortable and triggering.

At least the majority of people I know think it was decidedly Not Cool.

I'm guessing this wasn't revealed as a "HOLY BALLS DID PUCK DO THAT" thing that might be explored further on down the road.

On a similar note, never watch Animal House. There's a "comical" scene where a girl has passed out drunk on a bed (I think with her shirt off?) and this boy's shoulder angel/devil argue whether he should rape her. -sorry, I meant fuck her, it's totally hilarious and not at all skeevy as fucking hell.

Well, it was actually mentioned in a line early in the series. When Puck confronts Quinn about her pregnancy, I think, Quinn says something to the effect of "You gave me wine coolers and I felt fat that day" on why they had sex in the first place. The major reason I dropped the show was that they never addressed it again other than that one line that was kind of tossed out as a joke, and then went on to make Puck a major character and a viable love interest. And no.

In reading this post and the following comments I have this to add:

Never seen it and because of your reactions I am SOO glad of that fact.
