"average angel is hella gay" factoid actually just statistical error. average angel is only slightly gay. aziraphale georg, who lives in a bookstore & is gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.
the thing is that in truth young girls dont need ‘role models,’ they need people they can identify with
its a huge difference
I hate the feeling when I think something problematic just automatically and then you realize it and get mad at yourself for thinking that.
sam appreciation week - five things I love about sam
» the darkness inside him & his anger
#god i fucking love rage!sam so much jfc #yesss #and can i just say i love how well rounded the characters in this fucking show are? #most shows would put him in the straight-man/nice cop category and call it a day #or just make him outright dark and walking the line between good and evil #but spn lets its mains be multifaceted #be heros and villains #lets sam be gentle and empathetic and angry and vicious #and basically i just love this character ohgod (via)
There are 2 maybe 3 pictures of this 8 picture set where Sam was truly angry or even arguably morally compromised. The other pictures are of Sam afraid, soulless, or mentally compromised. My god, do I have a problem with using Sam’s issues with hell or examples of Sam under some type of violation (soullessness and the wraith) as a reason why he’s either “angry” or “dark.” He is panicking in at least 3 maybe 4 of these. WTF?
#come on guys #let’s think before we post #seriously i don’t know where the last gif is from #but it looks like he’s in a dangerous situation for which he would not like to be unarmed #not really anger or darkness #just sense #not surprised mental illness would be used as a sign of darkness #or ~anger #but REALLY? (via sillierthanasillylaugh)
That was when he first met Benny.
Yeah I’m with you. I acutally asked in my tags how many of these were Sam being under the influence of something.
I get that the pics are of Sam being kind of badass and maybe that’s what the tags are referring to?? Appreciating how powerful and lethal Sam can be when he needs to be??? The potential in him to be scary, something we don’t see often….??? idk but overall the photoset makes it seem, out of context, like Sam has a rage problem. And none of these moments… not one, is Sam overreacting about anything.
And I get that there’s usually a social dichotomy between the people we usually think of as “kind” and the people we usually think of as “willing to engage in physical altercations” and having a person who typifies both is super intriguing but the part of my brain who likes precision is saying that words mean things (and more importantly have social consequences), and if you’re going to bring depictions of mental health into the story, then words like “dark” and “angry” need to be used far more carefully than this.
Moreover, this isn’t really about Sam being badass. There are plenty of pictures of Sam being perfectly competent as a fighter. This is about Sam not following social mores about behavior (which includes violence or anger in socially “bad” ways, which can also be intriguing to people) and using depictions of mental health issues in this context should have been thought about much much more.
#i’m not saying don’t have fun #or don’t like sam’s ability to fight #but post responsibly #this isn’t really even about Sam as a character #this is about the way mental issues are depicted and talked about #about the way violation is talked about
Yeah. On the one hand, these are scenes I like too, but I’ve become cynical enough about fandom that even classifying his anger when he’s not compromised in one way or another as “darkness” has gotten dicey to me? Like, this isn’t the only time I’ve seen Sam’s ability to stand up to his abusive father rolled in with him being ~questionable in one way or another. But he was totally on the nose in what he’s saying to John in that top left image and he’s got every right to say it. Anger which allows a person to do that is not axiomatically dark.
omg that is so cute

The only sort of pictures you should be reblogging of Jennifer Lawrence
have unfollowed 20+ blogs on here already and i will unfollow anyone else who reblogs nude photos taken NON-CONSENSUALLY from these women. it is sexual violation (fueled by the objectification of women) and anybody who participates that is the literal scum of the earth
housing should be a basic a human right.
people shouldn’t have to “earn” a roof over their heads so that they don’t die in the streets.
