(Sorry for the perhaps awful reply. I am phone blogging on my lunch at work. )
Look, friend. I was making a post about one thing. A thing I have seen much of on this site. A thing I didn’t agree with.
Your comment is about another thing. A criticism that is valid.
I don’t see why you felt the need to come into my askbox with this accusatory tone.
But, I assume you want my opinion on what you said. If not, I am giving it anyway.
Is it sad to see a woman treated like that? Yes. Is it hard for people who live lives where death and a lack of agency flash before their face every single day to retain their grip on reality. Yes. “We keep each other human” is evidence enough that they understand this trouble.
I don’t know how many doctors you are friends with, but when you deal with trying to save people you have no connection to (and sometimes failing to save people) every single day, it is easy to forget the inherent tragedy. You almost have to forget it if you want to keep your sanity. Focus on the job at hand. Move on.
I think this is how the boys feel. So if they are gonna talk about the experience with April (which was a traumatic experience for all parties involved), they are gonna talk about the base good. Cas lost his virginity to a girl he found attractive. When Cas brought up the tragedy, the conversation was dropped. The only way I can justify this in my mind is by the same way I justify “brewskis.” There was a certain type of people (dudebros) that Cas had observed and he was attempting to emulate that behavior. It’s not a good excuse, but it is what it is.
Does this mean it was respectful? No. Does this mean I think it was worth including? Not really. Do I think they could’ve broached the topic with more tact? For sure.
Is this what my post was about in the slightest?
