Bill likes dogs because they are forever loyal and do not question their masters.
Just like Tom.
I don’t think that Tom is a fool who thinks that his brother has good ideas, I think he is a gentle hearted big brother who can’t say no to Bill. He comes across as a very intelligent young man who has been pushed into an image which parades him as a total dog (ain’t that funny?) and has stuck to it because he had to.
I mean, I would go to the ends of the earth to make my younger siblings happy. I can’t say no to them, no matter what. I think that Tom does the same.
You are making accusations against someone that you don’t even know. I feel that it is unfair of you to claim that Tom is a pushover. It doesn’t seem right to judge the actions of someone when you #1 don’t know them personally and #2 know nothing about their personal relationship as brothers. And not just brothers, but twins. It has been scientifically proven that twins share a closer bond than any other form of siblings. I have an older brother, whom I love dearly, but I do know when it is time to say no. Personally, I would suggest that Tom knows this time as well. I’m sure that there are many disagreements and many compromises on all parts, not just amongst the two brothers, but with all four of the band members. Perhaps I’m biased due to my being a fan, but I still felt the need to express my opinion. “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”
I think the general point of the post was not an accusation. More like, Tom isn’t a jackass like his image makes him seem (womanizer, viagra idiot etc) but he is an intelligent guy who is going along with an image which makes him seem the way he did. And that it is because at the end of the day you would do anything for your little siblings. Anything to make them happy.
