There is a curious mothering of Sam that, while I understand in the sense of being a mother and not wanting to hear about overtly sexual aspects of my boys, I don’t get in the sense that women feel they have to rush to preserve the sensibilities of a full-grown man. I am down with respect and not subjecting him to having his taste in women questioned, or asking about his private life, but when there is a thread about the fashion he wore to an event promoting the show and I say “I thought the suit jacket pulled” and I get back “OMG LEAVE HIM ALONE”, I wonder what exactly the heck they are protecting him from.
