If there was one thing Kurt didn't miss about McKinley… it was the bitches. Even his friends sometimes. Girls, in general, grated his nerves. He loves Mercedes to death, and Lauren was steadily becoming a favorite too. Rachel and Quinn equally tolerable. Santana and Brittany and Tina..
He loved each and everyone of them dearly.
But what he didn't love was their complaining. All the bitching about pimples and being too fat, or having too wide of hips. Every.
He hated it!
Kurt looked up from his homework, and into the mirror across from him. He frowned, smiled, made an angry face. He tried out several different faces -even the one that Blaine said looked sexy- but to him they were all the same:
He hated his friends just because they were girls. They were pretty little bitches. They had something he would never have: acceptance. They could love whoever -girls or boys. And no one would think it's weird because girls plus anything is apparently OKAY.
But no. Not for him, or Blaine. Or any other gay men that weren't undeniably famous. He would be ridiculed and mocked and looked down upon for the rest of his life.
Just because he was male.
Once, Kurt had posed the question "Would you love me if I had been a girl?" to Blaine. And his boyfriend took a moment to very seriously consider it. After a long silence stretched between them, Blaine replied.
"No… I don't think so. You probably would have been one of my best friends. And you would still have been in love with me… But.. Girls are just…"
"Gross." Kurt finished for him. Laughing, Blaine nodded.
Even so, as Kurt sat in front of his mirror, he couldn't help but feel as if life would have been better were he a girl. He could have been with Finn, or Sam. Or Puckerman had he felt inclined.
"Kurt? What're you thinking about?" Blaine was suddenly in his doorway, arms crossed and brow furrowed in concern. "You look upset." Kurt scooted over on the bed to make room for his boyfriend. "You aren't still hung up on being a girl, are you?"
"… Yeah…" Blaine rolled his eyes and pulled Kurt closer to him. "Girls just have it easier." Blaine, thoroughly tired of his boyfriend being in a slump, decided to take the more direct approach.
"If you were a girl, you would bleed monthly, have violent mood swings, be treated like crap not for being gay but because woman are apparently lower on the food chain. Karofsky could have done a lot worse were you a girl." Blaine tapped his chin, looking for other reasons to persuade Kurt. "Oh.. And You would never have met, and therefore never have fallen in love with, me."
Kurt's eyes widened considerably.
"Did that help?" Kurt nodded silently. "Good." Blaine tilted Kurt's face towards him and pressed a sweet kiss onto the lips. "Always glad to help."
