I love how Finn keeps referring to Rachel as crazy and apparently it’s also something they’ve discussed in their relationship.
Rachel cannot show emotions or she’s crazy.
It’s no secret that calling a woman crazy is an old trick to shut her up. “You’re overreacting.” “Calm down.” “You’re so dramatic.” “Stop freaking out.”
Those sentences are supposed to manipulate our emotions by making us think we’re insane, thus making our thoughts, our emotions, our behavior inadequate.
But it’s not inadequate to have emotions and it’s not inadequate to show them.
Finn, for example, has a habit of expressing his emotions in a very forceful manner.
So why is it that him going bat shit crazy over Quinn’s “lie” is acceptable? Why is it that launging at her is ok? Why is it that he gets to yell at Quinn, who’s been through more than anyone else on the show, when his only real concern was that he picked Quinn over Rachel?
That was his choice. Maybe he shouldn’t have made Rachel feel like he’d pick someone else over her? Maybe he should have asked her beforehand if she’s ok with him running together with Quinn?
Maybe then Rachel wouldn’t have reacted “crazy”.
