i’ve already seen posts like ‘omg look at how many women spn is introducing what are haters going to say now about them not listening to fans’
like NO, them bringing claire back does not excuse the barrage of misogyny we’ve had across ten seasons, it does not excuse the how disgusting the 10x01 sneak peak was
they key to writing female characters is not by simply introducing them but by having THEM LAST AND NOT PUTTING THEM THROUGH MISOGYNISTIC NARRATIVE TREATMENT/DYING FOR FUCKING MANPAIN
spn does not get props for this spn does not deserve cookies for this do not try to shame people who criticize the show for legitimate reasons thank u
I’m going to try to give this a chance, and I do think SPN still has the ability to surprise us (like that “Annie Alexis” episode, which was a brilliant showcase for female characters, one that was so refreshing and surprising), but the fact that so many of have to automatically assume all female characters will die says it all.
I have to admit that I’m confused by people being so appalled and disgusted by trashy posts that some Zach fans make that they need to share these posts with us again and again, thus giving them even more exposure.
I’d never have seen these if I hadn’t seen them put here about a dozen times.
As crass and tacky as these things are, they are, sadly, a very commonplace part of Twitter. Trying to use them as a blanket statement about fans won’t change that or make it go away.

Zach on Twitter is basically like, when you were young (or given the median age of tumblr, most of you are probably still young), and one of your friends had a father who thought he was really, really cool, and sometimes he actually was, and that was awesome, but when he wasn’t…he really, really wasn’t, but you didn’t say anything because you knew he meant well and you didn’t want to hurt his feelings.
