I am all for learning to stand on your own two feet, make your own decisions and take responsibility for your own life. But seriously. Not when it comes to Sam Winchester.
I am getting so fucking sick of this ‘Oh I hope poor Sam can escape this awful toxic relationship and have some agency’. Just, no. Shut the fuck up and sit down.
When Sam Winchester is left to make decisions he:
-becomes a junkie
-lets Lucifer out of his cage
-refuses to acknowledge that other people have feelings and have made important sacrifices for him
-refuses to listen to advice from the people who care about him -scratches the Wall
-refuses to reach out for assistance when he can’t cope
-takes on dangerous missions
-wants to die
and y’all think it’s a good idea for him to just skip off and do his own thing? GET REAL, PEOPLE
Why do you think they included that Batman/Superman anecdote? It wasn’t to tell you that Dean was always there for Sam (we already fucking knew that), it was to remind you that Dean knows his limits and what he is capable of, but Sam leaps without looking and does STUPID SHIT to impress his brother/prove that he can be independent. And that’s not the mark of an emotionally stable individual who can look after themselves. That’s a sign of someone needs guidance and help.
So build a bridge and get over it; Sam needs Dean to be his safety net and he always will, because he’s a headstrong little fuck who thinks no one can teach him anything because he knows it all already.
When Sam is left to make his own decisions he
Goes to college and gets great grades
Makes friends for the first time in his life
Falls in love and moves in with her
Starts looking for engagement rings
Takes the LSATs and gets a “scary high” score
Scores an interview with Stanford Law School to possibly get a scholorship
The THIRD TIME Sam makes decisions on his own he
Fixes the Impala
Hits a dog and takes it to a vetrinarian
Takes responsibility for the dog after it is treated
Gets a job, holds it and does it responisibly
Takes interest in his coworkers
Finds a woman and starts a relationship
Commits to the woman, moves in with her
Starts looking into returning to college
Gives up his girlfriend when her husband turns out to not be dead
The only time Sam made horrible choices was when Dean committed suicide by making a deal that condemned him to Hell, which both of them thought meant eternal torture and eventually becoming a demon. Speaking of, why is Dean being suicidal and wanting to take the trials the bestest thing ever, but when Sam does it, it’s bad. Why is committing suicide via demon deal better than risking death saving the world.
Sam scratched at his wall but it didn’t fall. Dean refused to stand down leading to Cas to breaking the wall. Cas said he would restore it if Dean stood down, Dean refuses to stand down condemning Sam to whatever horror comes from that breakage. Why is Dean leaving Sam’s wall broken acceptable and Sam’s wanting to know what HIS OWN BODY DID unacceptable.
As to releasing Lucifer, well you can’t have a last seal without a first one and the first one is all on Dean because he decided to commit suicide via demon. As to not asking for help, show me those great sessions Dean had with a psychiatrist. Show me Dean admitting he ever needs help, other than dealing with a supernatural being too strong for him and Sam.
Honey, I can do this all day! Actually it’s been fun.
okay let me go through your list
Sam abandons his family/familial responsibilities
Sam ruthlessly cuts out contact with them completely thus weakening his own support system
Sam endangers civilians
Sam endangers a girl he likes
Sam refuses to seek help for her when he begins to have visions- help that might have saved her life if he weren’t so stubborn
Sam refuses to acknowledge the real world and would rather bury his head in the sand
Sam goes on a reckless revenge mission to ease his guilt, which almost results in his and Dean’s deaths more than once
Sam abandons his responsibilities and leaves Kevin to be tortured/possibly die
Sam cuts out all contact with his allies so they have no idea if he’s safe or needs help
Sam hits a dog and is bullied into caring for it
Sam hides from his responsibilities some more
Sam enjoys living in a delusional daydream, even though he knows how dangerous it is for the woman- after Jess, Lisa etc
yes you’re right, clearly I was so wrong and Sam is a special little responsible snowflake hOW CoUld I evER HavE BeEN sO bLiND
you’re not going to win any points by comparing him to a selfless, altruistic hero who would do anything for his spoilt, ungrateful self-righteous little brother, so just stop

O wise one, please tell me where my facts were wrong. Oh wait, you can’t. Because they weren’t. I’m not responsible for Sam. I have no creative input in Supernatural. When I write/read Sam, I like him. It’s just the Sam from the actual show that I think behaves a spoilt, self-righteous, reckless dick, and I reserve the right to do so because if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….
…then it’s probably a duck.
So fuck you, and your anon, you cowardly piece of trash. I love this show, and if they wrote him likeable then I would like him, but they don’t, so I won’t
how straight boys pose in pictures never fails to make me laugh
it’s always pointing at the other person, a piece sign by their chest, or the two guys doing a frozen bro handshake like this
You leave Tyler Hoechlin alone
It’s not against the law in Massachusetts to secretly take photos up a woman’s skirt, the state’s highest court ruled Wednesday. The court dismissed charges against Michael Robertson, who was arrested by Boston transit police for taking photos and videos up multiple women’s skirts or dresses on the subway.
The judges sympathized with the notion that a woman should be able to have a reasonable expectation not to have secret photos taken up her skirt when she goes out in public, but ruled that current state law does not address that. Massachusetts’ “Peeping Tom” laws, as written, only protect women from being photographed in dressing rooms or bathrooms when they are undressed. Since upskirt photos are taken of fully clothed women in public, they don’t count, according to the court.
“A female passenger on a MBTA trolley who is wearing a skirt, dress, or the like covering these parts of her body is not a person who is ‘partially nude,’ no matter what is or is not underneath the skirt by way of underwear or other clothing,” the court wrote.
Robertson’s lawyers defended his actions by arguing the photos were a matter of free speech.
Upskirt photos are becoming increasingly common with the spread of camera phones, but the law is slow to catch up with new technologies. Under most voyeurism laws, women must have a “reasonable expectation of privacy,” which is difficult to prove when she is in public. The Massachusetts court is hardly the first to acquit men who take these photos; perpetrators in Oklahoma, Indiana, and Washington have all been cleared by judges because the laws on the books did not apply. In response to one case in which a man legally took upskirt photos of a 10-year-old girl, Indiana lawmakers passed an upskirt ban in 2011. Other states have considered but not passed similarly updated voyeurism laws.
ew ew ewwwww
Today in news that makes me want to seek alternate living arrangements in a nearby galaxy…
Maybe I’m just not that bright, but isn’t that the whole purpose of setting precedent? To set a standard for how laws are interpreted and enforced in society?
Rape culture hard at work
What the ever-loving fuck? And people wonder why feminism needs to exist.
