i don’t know how to write short posts on that sort of stuff
granted dubiousculturalartifact isn’t the best source — or even a good source — for accurate information since they’ve chosen to “shake with anger” over jared and call misha respectful all in one go (it’s wrong to pick and choose when sexism and transphobia anger you; it’s also wrong to ignore the shit misha said at that same panel).
although the “call-out” wasn’t organic, it doesn’t really matter what anyone else said — we can and should talk about what jared said: that there aren’t more women on supernatural because it’s a show that doesn’t deal with romance, that there are a ton of other shows out there that do and supernatural tends to deal with other parts of the human experience. that implies that women in television shows exist only to fulfill romantic roles, that the only human experience they are involved in is the one where men fall in love with them.
was it misogynistic? not really. was it sexist? ehhh maybe. what it really was is ignorant because women in fictional narratives should never exist solely to become romantic partners for the male leads, and if there are people who believe that that’s the only role women play (esp. on supernatural when jared has acted across from a number of women who aren’t romantic interests like jody mills) then showrunners and writers need to start changing that. and we need to keep talking about it.
acting like the people who are pointing it out are all just a part of our fandom that exists to discredit jared is wrong. acting like people are “finding” things to be offended about is wrong. nobody is gathering the firing squad here. it’s not wrong or “wanky” to talk about this stuff. we should exist outside of the rabble-rousers who call out people they hate and ignore the same shit when their fav says it — we should be willing and able and eager to talk about this stuff because we’re fans of this person.

THIS is what he said.
Crows are scary
- use tools
- Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
- Have huge brains for birds
- like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
- They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
- they are scary smart at solving puzzles
- some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
- they can remember faces
- SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
- They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.
i love crows so much
crows are amazing
My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead
crows are the coolest shit
Yeah but have you seen this
Reblogging again because dat gif.
yo it’s totally fine, i stopped stanning for jared (or any of the actors) a while ago, so i don’t really care abt future wank lol
he really does say some dumb shit though doesn’t he
"i’m just disappointed bc he literally sounded like he thought women would automatically turn spn romantic and that’s so stupid."
It’s not stupid. It’s exactly what the writers of the CW do. Have you not noticed that almost every other show on that channel is a friggin soap opera? Have you not noticed that 90% of women on tv are there just to be romantic interests?
Sorry, but whether or now you want to believe it… that is what would happen. And Jared acknowledged it. I doubt he meant it as any sort of political stance, but it’s a good point.
Besides, the show is about Sam and Dean. Two brothers. Nobody else matters. Not even Castiel and Crowley. And not any females people want to add in just to make it more PC.
I shouldn’t take this seriously, since you refer to women as “females” and use the term “PC” but — if it’s what the CW writers do, then it should be framed as a complaint against the writers, not an explanation for why Supernatural can’t or shouldn’t have women as a part of their regular main cast. It wasn’t a good point at all.
You can’t even argue that it’s because the show is about “two brothers” because as you pointed out, they’ve been find adding two more white men to the major cast.
