Strong brotherly love does NOT=unhealthy, codependance or romance!
I am so SICK of Sam and Dean’s love for each other being referred to as unhealthily codependent. I love that such a beautiful, strongly bonded brotherhood is being shown on TV. Most shows would have us believe that men aren’t able/aren’t allowed to show platonic love for one another. God forbid we admit men have feelings. *eyeroll*
In fact it’s because this type of love is so rarely shown that so many people have to go and ruin the beauty of it by putting a romantic spin on it. People, yes even men, can love each other deeply without there being anything beyond friendship/ familial feelings.
And even though the show has called their brotherhood unhealthy and codependent I still applaud for them for showing it.
We need more strong, platonic love shown on TV between men. Maybe then men will stop being afraid to show they care about each other.
