Serrenedy's Thoughts

I twittered about this earlier, but sometimes it feels as though talking about misogyny in this industry is like dealing with Groundhog Day: there seems to be a continuous reset, a collective male amnesia around the issue. As if, when a woman speaks out, it’s for the first time and everyone is shocked. Just shocked, I tell you. Sexism exists? OH MY GOD.

So I got an idea

yes??? Nintendo, are you taking notes?

Real life. The concept you’re thinking of is going outside.

Yes let me just go outside and talk to my rhinoceros neighbour, who resides in the town in which I am mayor, and then see what the alpaca merchants have for sale.

I’ll head into town hall afterward and talk to my anthropomorphic dog wife.

I think the end of the sentence is “If you wanna be brothers you have to stop acting like you’re my parent”, but Sam can’t quite say it yet, because it sounds so harsh given how Dean was forced to be Sam’s parent by their circumstances as kids and tried so hard to give Sam everything he knew how to.  
It was toxic for both of them when they were kids, being left to fend for themselves, being forced into parent/ child, but not their fault. It’s toxic for them now, but they’re adults, so they can change things.
But letting go of the survival strategies you founded your identity on as a child in a bad environment is terrifyingly hard, Dean looks lost because he knows he’s broken, he just doesn’t understand the mechanism yet. If he is not his brother’s keeper, then who is he? At the moment, his answer is “poison”. Just how far down is his rock bottom going to go?

Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls.
