[quote]Honey, Chris Colfer ain't exactly what I'd call a "man." At least, not a REAL man.
Awww Sweetie you sound like such damaged goods. You sound like you got beat up a lot on the playground. If you didn't, you should have been.
r7 is right and r10 sounds like an ass.
If glee wanted Darren to kiss a real man like Grant Gustin and not Chris Colfer who seems like a woman trapped in a man's body
Are you sure the good kissing isn't because Darren is yet another pocket gay?
he does seem like a good kisser. I just wish he would get to try it out on Chord Overstreet or Grant Gustin.
There is little chemistry in the clip. The second they stop filming DC and CC walk off in different directions, CC could not walk off fast enough.

Because they are filming and have to go back and do it again, or go to the next shot, or have to do a close up, or due in the recording studio or costume trailer. Obviously Colfer said something when he tapped him on the arm that made Criss laugh. They are working, not having lunch in Beverly Hills.
Agree r14. It kinda annoys me that with Darren playing a gay character for several years we will likely never get to see him make out with a guy other than Chris Colfer.
I don't mind Colfer but talk about a wasted opportunity.
I have been self employed for 20 years so I don't have to kiss anyone's ass.
Did anyone catch his sparkly shoes and painted fingernails at the VMA's tonight?
Darren seems like a cool guy, and his girlfriend Mia is pretty cool too.
R7. R11 and R12 need to get their priorities in order and stop attacking gay man who do not meet their notions of maleness. Homophobes don't belong here, and if you're knocking gay men for being "too gay" you're a homophobe.
And an asshole to boot.
I notice a lot of attacks on gay men on DL. It is troublesome. On another thread, someone said it was freepers. But in my opinion self-loathing gay men are just as bad.
Grow up, OP. The dude is an actor. This is what he does for a career.
Umm nothing the OP said was offensive R24. You are the one who needs grow up.
Darren Criss is damn good at kissing for the camera and is able to kiss Colfer completely convincingly even to a gay audience. It's impressive and many actors are not that great at it.
And you are right Colty, he totally jacked your style.
At Alex Newell isn't pretending to be something shes not unlike Colfer.
Did anyone watch that new Darren Criss movie?
I wonder what Darren and Grant where thinking in r25 pic.
I did not R29 and based on its performance not many people did. The reviews were god awful. I have a soft spot for Criss but he would have to been bearing his ass for half the movie to get me to buy a ticket.
And his glittery mani. He almost out-sparkled Adam Lambert.
Tiny twinkles on tiny fingers. Is everything about Darren tiny? Only serious answers please.
He's straight. He doesn't give me a gay vibe at all, and I have an excellent gaydar. He is very gay friendly, and support lgbt rights, but that's it.
[quote]He doesn't give me a gay vibe at all, and I have an excellent gaydar
I love when people, especially straight women, just proclaim they have an excellent gaydar. People are the most unrealiable judges of themselves.
And Darren Criss is certainly very gayish in some respects, but *shocker* most people in this threada and board as a whole weren't even claiming he is gay.
The only rumors I've ever heard about him hear about him is that he slept with Murphy, but clearly that would just be for career reasons, not because he wants to.
R25 and R30, That photo is a manip. A pretty obvious one.

You know I've thought about this, but I don't think it's self-loathing. I think it's actually fear, left over from childhood. OK, you're eight, ten, hell all through school and you see the obviously gay kid getting bullied, punched or teased. I think the fear of being discovered and becoming that kid stays with these guys and they in turn become the bully because "I'm not like that, I'm masculine, I'm not the faggot of the school". That's why they dismiss people as fabulous as Chris Colfer instead of embracing him.
Criss pings very loudly, especially in interviews. I've never met anyone who comes across like Criss does who was truly straight.
So? It was also extremely passionate when Montgomery Clift kissed Elizabeth Taylor.
You're exactly right, r37. At school there was this out and proud flamer, the only one.. and he was that way since he was like 10, before high school.
Well this girl told me that he had said the reason I didn't like him was because "it scares the shit out of you that he's gay". It was true. I was trying not to be noticed myself.
If this happened today, things would be different. But it was a scary place growing up gay in the late 80s and early 90s.
As for Colfer, good for him.. he's being himself and that takes a lot of guts. The fem gays have to take all the crap but are really the bravest and don't get much thanks for it.

It was a scary place growing up gay since time began. Unfortunately some don;t get over it and take it out on others.
This is true r41. I think today is better in most senses but it's also inescapable.. gayness is embedded in the culture and not the taboo thing of before where you could hide, so the bullying is probably more intense as kids can be evil. The internet changed everything.
It is still extremely hard for very noticeable feminine guys to be accepted almost everywhere. Most of the progress toward gay and bi men has benefited very masculine and mainstream gay/bi males who conform to gender stereotypes. Feminine gay guys have worked hardest for gay acceptance, but masculine dudes have benefited the most.
