i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.
Listeners, this just in: Dean Winchester, you know, the mechanic who works in the car lot near Old Woman Josie’s house? Well, he says that the angels (which we all know don’t exist) revealed themselves to him last night; said one of them had blue eyes, wore a dirty trench coat and helped him replace the tire on a ‘67 Chevy Impala. Apparently, other angels were there too, but they were (and I’m quoting here) “dicks.”
Night vale/SPN crossover! I’ve been wanting to do this since I listened to the first episode.
