Jordan Stokes and Matthew Wrather discuss the After School Special episodes of Glee, including the Alcohol and Sex episodes. It’s a remarkably calm, civil, clear-headed episode. I wonder what made the difference?

I often listen to the podcasts while working to stay awake. The opening this week seemed so pleasant… and then I fell asleep. This is a very strange thing to wake up to.
I also like the fallacy’s you guys point out and coin and hopefully a tvtropes style compilation can be culled sometime. But I have a question about the latest fallacy, “the fallacy of the asshole in the closet” where a person is an asshole because they repress their gay sexuality and an asshole only because of that; is there a variation that is broadened to any sex act, like when someone says “that person really needed to get laid” when they talk about a spree shooter, it’s kinda what Taxi Driver is hinged on?
Personally I don’t think that the non-orientated sexuality is disproved by Santana. In most of the popular culture, there’s a state of having “The One” and everyone’s got one person who is their inevitable partner. It causes a ton of ‘shipping’ and only really gets stopped when a character dies (such as Marissa from The OC, then making a new ‘One’ have to be created). With the concept of “The One”, then you have to have only one orientation so while a bit of experimentation is possible, everyone has to make a choice and stick with it. This puts an effective ‘death clock’ on the non-orientated sexuality rather than subscribe to the idea that maybe someone is hot for both genders and maybe The One is just The One For Now.
Re: Stokes’s parting question, the closest I can think of is “Pink Triangle” by Weezer, but it doesn’t quite work because they’re never really together in the first place.
