Genevieve Cortese talking about Ruby’s torture scene in “Heaven and Hell” (via freckledbuttchester)’ (via stickingupforsammy)
It’s nice that Julie was there to help her, but why couldn’t the writers just let her have some clothes on if it was cold enough to actually make her uncomfortable? Especially since they knew she was uncomfortable, and the crew was uncomfortable as well. There’s NO reason why Ruby had to be naked while she was being tortured. It wasn’t necessary at all. The writers did the same thing with Meg too, when it was not needed. When Alistair was being tortured by Dean, he was fully dressed. Sam and Dean have never been stripped to be tortured. In fact, no male character has been tortured while naked. Not only is being naked uncomfortable for the actresses (or at least for Genevieve, although I doubt it would be comfortable for anyone), it also sexualizes violence against women.
