* Brittany can be seen as a {{Deconstruction}} of the DumbBlonde stereotype, making her a source of tragedy rather than comedy. Her intelligence seems to be low enough to suggest that she would be unable to cope in the outside world by herself. The faculty, save for Will, look the other way because of her position as a Cheerio, meaning that she never gets any help and no alarm bells go off for an underlying health condition. Plus, in a school where the average students think that a head of broccoli is a toilet brush or that women have prostates, are Britt's non-sequiturs really going to stand out? However, we do seem to be seeing the beginnings of {{Reconstruction}} - Although Brittany's continued belief in Santa Claus throws up some challenges for the rest of the club, it does help the other gleeks to get together to do something selfless. Also, her refusal to leave Artie for Santana demonstrates that she sees things in a very black and white, almost childlike way. She does what she thinks is right (and possibly tries to make up for her mistakes because she's realising that cheating with Santana does count) without falling prey to the brattier, more selfish instincts that virtually everyone else in the shows displays in romantic relationships.

*** While her parents are totally fine with [[ItWasHisSled her being a lesbian]], her father saying he'll love her always and forever, she doesn't care about their opinions as much as 'buela's. Who says she never wants to see Santana again. Which undoubtedly caused some emotional psychological damage, given what she was already going through.

* Kurt is a {{Deconstruction}} of the stereotypical CampGay--his flamboyance makes him the most frequent target of bullying, which clearly takes a toll on him, and eventually he's forced to transfer schools when the bullying from one person goes UpToEleven--namely, when Karofsky's antics [[spoiler: gain a VillainousCrush edge, to the point where Kurt is ''terrified'' at the sight of him.]] Also, while he and his father have one of the most heartwarming relationships on the show, for a while he was so terrified of losing his father's love that he did ''very'' questionable things to keep it. [[ButNotTooGay The lack of anything resembling kissing or sex scenes]] [[spoiler: until "Original Songs"]] is explained by Kurt's genuine discomfort and lack of information regarding sex, which isn't hard to believe for someone who is/was the only openly-gay kid in his high school[[hottip:*: note that most American public high schools have '''500-1000 students''']].

* Holly looks like the CoolTeacher that appears a lot in the media- a [[TotallyRadical "hip"]] teacher who her students relate to. However, the more we see of her, in [[Recap/GleeS2E7TheSubstitute The Substitute]], we see that she doesn't really have her life together and she lacks the ability to truly care for her students, as seen when she doesn't help Mercedes and doesn't even know what her punishment was.

* Born This Way takes on both CookieCutterCuties and BeautifulAllAlong. Tina and Rachel worry about not fitting the CookieCutterCuties molds because of their race and it is shown that even white women cannot hold up to this standard without surgery. [[spoiler: Quinn]] had to lose 70 pounds, go on acne treatment, wear contacts, dye her hair, always wear make up and get a nose job to look perfect.

****Interestingly Ballads was written by Brad. He didn't write any of the episodes listed above where it worked. DependingOnTheWriter perhaps?
