…But what bothered me the most was the idea that a character could only be queer if it would somehow “serve the story.” What the hell does that even mean? You would never say that to a real person. A show shouldn’t have queer characters because they “serve the storyline.” A show should have queer characters because some people are queer.
The fact is that it would make sense for Dean Winchester to be bisexual. This is based on the collective decisions of the writers, actors, producers, directors, and editors over the past eight seasons. This isn’t about some fan fantasy that Dean is into guys. This is about choices that have been made, interpretations that have been allowed to develop, and the time that has been put into both.
Queer people deserve to see representations of themselves on TV. Dean Winchester, a masculine guy in his mid-30s who loves whiskey, classic rock, and his ‘67 Chevy Impala; who was raised by an abusive father; who has been hunting since he could hold a shotgun; and who is a lead character on an urban fantasy drama popular with a male audience would be such an important and ground-breaking representation of bisexuality on TV.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?! OMG the director of Saw is gonna do this movie
FUCK YES FUCK YES FUCK YES
Oh god. I remember these when I was little. The images where terrifying.
Oooooh I remember reading these as a kid! Someone pinch me. (Checked it out, it’s on HuffPost…. So… Sounds like it’s a thing.)
My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.
Do they have pads and tampons in the wizarding world? or do they just cast some super absorbing spell on their underwear?
Are girls allowed to bring tampons to the Hunger Games arena?
Or do they have to publicly announce that they are on their period and hope a sponsor will send a parachute?
Or do they have to make their own out of moss?
I am so glad I’m not the only one who’s thought of this.
