I made it a point to try and watch that episode but turned it off. I can't stand the show. I can't stand the characters.

I saw the episode last night while my wife was watching. Obviously teen sex is an issue that all kids/ parents face. Another reality is same sex teen relationships are also an issue. Whether you agree with it or not (I happen not to) it is still an issue that will not go away. I happen to think on one hand Fox and Glee want the topic out there for discussion but lets face it, this is a TV show are ratings are king. They need and want viewers. What better way than to delve into a same sex "first time" scenario. The show cracks me up though. It's supposed to be about high school and they portray these "girls" like their in their 30's. Too funny.

Teen sex has been on TV since "James at 15" back in the 1970s. The fact that this episode garnered any more attention than any other episode is hilarious. Where was the "outrage" when the gym teacher was shooting students out of cannons?

Tried to watch it. Could not make it through to the famous "sex" scene (whatever...) Had to turn it off before I threw up or fell asleep. This is a really really really bad show. Maybe it was entertaining early on, but it is crap now.

"James At 15" and "James At 16" was one of my FAV shows and Lance Kerwin was one of my FAV actors in the 70's. I saw him in a number of movies as well.(Boy, has he screwed up HIS life !). But I do not recall him ever having sex in any of those episodes.

I love how people are all bent out of shape about this when the first season featured a pregnant teen. And Santana and Britney have both been sleeping around since the start too. But show two guys laying in bed fully clothed and the Earth will stop spinning. I can bet they didn't even watch the show.

There is a memorial page on facebook for fundie xstain teens who committed suicide after the relentless bullying of them by the same sex sex scene on "Glee."

Please stop by and add your condolences to the grieving, talibangelical families. Or just pop by and say, "Golden rule."

What exactly are you not agreeing with? Same sex teen relationships are a reality.

A few people made the same point I was going to make, but yeah...where was all the cries and profanity and protesting at when Quinn got knocked up by Puck? Where was the outrage when Santana and Finn had sex for the first time? Where was the "no homo" outrage when Santana and Britney S. Peers tied the knot and became a couple? Where was the outrage when Finn called Kurt "faggy"? But yet Kurt and Blaine has sex and everybody wants to start boycotting Glee, calling it disgusting and giving out a bad message to kids. Oh, and where was the outrage when Glee did the "Blame it on the Alcohol" episode when they all got drunk during a performance in front of the entire student body?

Everything is okay on TV as long as it doesn't show two gay guys, typical. I never heard any outrage about the show 16 and Pregnant, considering at the end of each one of those shows they would tell viewers if they were pregnant and want to share their story to submit and audition tape---teens are hungry for fame and popularity as it is...that's like promoting unsafe sex. Every reality show and drama sitcom has at least teen sex, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancies, bullying, etc. featured and nobody says a damn thing about it. But if a gay couple is featured on TV everybody is ready to grab their pitchforks, torches, picket signs, protest and boycott.

I couldn't think of how to spell it "politely" as Topix suggested. LOL!
