"if jensen is uncomfortable with destiel and doesn’t want questions about it, that’s his prerogative!"
"actors don’t owe us anything!"
i’m seeing so many posts like these on my dash??!!
you can like destiel and jensen without going to great lengths to defend how problematic he is
jensen is heterosexist sorry to break it to you but he is
he has said a lot of very shitty things
it doesn’t matter that he’s from texas or that he had a conservative upbringing
he’s not an ignorant 13 year old
he is a grown man who needs to be held accountable for his actions
(not that 13 year olds should get a free pass to do what they want but you get my point)
i don’t know if the screening lady at the con made the decision herself to not allow the questions or if the orders came from jensen
but the point is - if they’re actually banning legit discourse about queer relationships (re: destiel) or queer readings of characters (re: bi!dean)
that is a fucking problem
think about it for a second
why is jensen so uncomfortable with such questions? has he ever made the same request for questions about dean and anna? or dean and lisa??
have the screening people at cons banned questions about cas and meg? (this isn’t your excuse to shit on meg so don’t do that)
it is literally the idea of his character being in a same-sex relationship that bothers him
why are you defending that
people need to be called out on such things. educated about them.
fandom really doesn’t need to be redoubling its efforts to keep all the wonderful meta, fanfiction, fanart etc away from the actors
come on people
