I reject your reality and substitute my own, but I'm surprisingly open-minded.

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

Its hard for men to understand why women dont get loud & angry because they havent spent their entire lives being reprimanded whenever they take up too much space. (via pluralfloral)

On Jo’s personality: — "I knew she was sort of like Dean but a girl, and I tried to have fun with it.”

I’ve never seen these photos before!  And I’m about to ruin this post with Cockles, so if you reblog it feel free to delete my comments.

So this is how guest stars are usually treated by Jensen.  Friendly, open, easy, having a laugh.  They’re welcomed and made to feel included.  So many guest stars have said that working the Supernatural set is one of the best they’ve ever been on and Jensen (and of course Jared) make it such an enjoyable experience.

Who is the one person who has a different story?  Misha.  Jensen’s already said that Dean’s reactions to Castiel in those early episodes were basically his reactions to Misha.  What are they?  Awed, a little terrified, kind of aroused?  And then he distances himself from Misha, and consequently so does Jared, and Misha is not included or welcomed so easily.  Because Jensen was scared and confused by his visceral reaction to this odd man with his inhumanly blue eyes.

Yes, I know this is all old news…but it’s just so obvious how different Misha was to Jensen right from the start.  Dude’s been in love with him for almost five years now.

Why do people keep referring to Ty as Jensen's boyfriend?

ssjdebusk:

I’d guess it’s because they were going to be roommates in college and then Jensen went to LA to pursue an career in acting, leaving Ty in Texas until he decided to leave school and follow Jensen and come live with him in LA while Jensen did acting. They also look like a couple in literally every picture I’ve ever seen of them. [x][x][x][x]
