So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
are you even fucking kidding me, this is so unbelievable that i thought it was going to be a parody at first
This is a photo of the best and worst purchase I have ever made in my life. It is a kotatsu. For those of you unfamiliar, a kotatsu is a Japanese heated table. The top of the table comes off, you put a blanket on in the cold seasons, and then put the table top back on. There are small space heaters underneath the whole table and when you stick your feet under there, it’s a toasty oven of pure bliss. It’s great on heating bills because I don’t turn on my heat, just my kotatsu. It’s the best and the worst purchase because it’s fucking awesome yet it’s so awesome I never want to leave the thing and end up missing school because who the fuck wants to get out from under a toasty oven of pure bliss? Not this bitch. My advice to you, is that you should totally get a kotatsu but only if you have the will power and self control to not get trapped under there. It’s so addicting, I even sleep under it sometimes…
i am so getting a kotatsu
I will own one…one day.
Okay, so this is actually the last thing before I clock out.
The line was in reference to Sam’s speech in “The Purge,” where Dean said that Sam would have done the same thing (save Dean at any cost) and Sam says “same circumstances, I wouldn’t.” Meaning that he wouldn’t go against Dean’s will, lie to him, strip him of his agency, et cetera, et cetera.
Apparently Dean has selective hearing and missed the “same circumstances” bit and just believes that Sam doesn’t give a fuck about him, or whether he lives or dies. This is despite Sam having saved Dean repeatedly in the past, doing his best to save Dean in the very episode he gave that line in, and showing great concern over the state of Dean’s health and life throughout the rest of the season, and, as you said, implying that he was the “guilty” party and playing the distraction today.
But Dean still stubbornly believes that Sam doesn’t care about him, possibly to establish his own little pity party.
As for the saving thing…yeah, I agree with you. I’d like Sam to play hero. I want Sam to visibly and completely save Dean under normal circumstances (everyone is aware, everything is above-board, no lies, no trickery, nothing that violates Dean involved). Like, say, Sam could kill a vampire. I’d also really, really like to see Sam as a the capable hunter he is, and save himself.
That being said, I think the show has a point in doing what it does. Not every episode. They’ve crossed the line into too much. But they are using Dean in these circumstances for specific purposes. Like in “the Purge,” Dean saves the day and tries to use that to buy forgiveness for violating Sam, and learns that that isn’t enough. Or here, we see Dean’s complete murder-happy bloodlust-driven killing experience that he evidently enjoyed a great deal, which is quite telling about Dean.
I really hope the writers have a long game going, and we get to see some payout. They’ve been pretty good about maintaining consequences for actions, even though we’re all drowning in Dean POV so it’s sometimes hard to identify.
And I would love more episodes like Mother’s Little Helper, with Sam getting the spotlight on the hunt and being capable and brilliant. Granted, there wasn’t any saving Dean in that, but I don’t think we’re going to see Sam anywhere near that position until things come to a head with the Mark of Cain.
I completely agree. I mean, saving Dean is well and good and I want it but I like Sam being badass Sam and want to see more of that. There’s a purpose to what they’re doing, I know it. I’m just getting tired of it.
I’m ready for them to start implementing the end game on this. Next episode is the premise for the spin-off, I’ve heard, but after that they’re closing in on the end of the season. Hopefully we’ll start to see some pay-off.
