Anonymous asked: Did you know that Misha got in trouble with the higher ups for talking about the misogyny? He's actually not allowed to talk about it anymore, and there are apparently people around him tasked with making sure he doesn't talk about it with fans in public so he won't get in trouble again. This was stated to fans at a con trying to talk with him about it. In a stunning coincidence, the misogyny on the show has increased, Cas is objectifying women and was manipulated into unwittingly raping a woman
Speaks volumes for the nature of the show, doesn’t it? They should have really taken it as constructive criticism on how they’re being dicks to the female characters but they stuck their fingers in their ears and got worse.
This legitimately happened.
“Also, someone mentioned how she’d appreciated his comments on the “gratuitous misogyny” in SPN - I’m sure y’all remember that little NJcon speech - to which he admitted that had actually gotten him in a bit of trouble and he wasn’t really supposed/allowed to comment on it further. He kind of started to do so anyway until one of the women stopped him ‘cause we shouldn’t be getting him in more trouble. We all still gave a round of applause for his original speech which it was imo pretty clear he still stood behind.”
(Although, is the woman mentioned the person ‘tasked with making sure he doesn’t talk about it’? Because I think it was just one of the women in the audience, though I don’t know for sure. But I’m pretty sure the CW doesn’t actually have the money to pay for a part-time Misha Muffler, they won’t even pay for a continuity person on SPN. If the anon read the same accounts of that Meet & Greet I did, maybe they just misunderstood? Or am I misunderstanding who that woman was?)
No, no, don’t actually deal with the misogyny in your show, SILENCE THOSE WHO SPEAK OF IT.
who was it
no seriously who fuckin was it
on the supernatural production team
that looked at season 1 where an episode was written
centered entirely around a racist truck
and actually thought,
"hey. let’s bring them back."
"and hey, let’s give them all the really plot-heavy episodes. i mean, it’s not like they’ll just make shit stuff up or forget where kansas is or how tattoos work or write a scene where the boys objectify a rape victim for lulz."
For real, though, I wonder how many people who try to spin Cas’s experience with April as a semi-positive one because “Hey, at least he got to have orgasms and stuff!” also think Sam’s experience with Ruby was semi-positive because “Hey, at least he got to have orgasms and stuff!”???
As I’ve said yesterday, I like to keep personal things personal. That being said, I’ve recently come across some posts about a terrible rumor that I would like to address, because I know how fast things like that spread on this website, and this is making me really sad and mad at the same time.
Read mored, I apologize deeply if you are on mobile.
Anonymous asked: What on Earth is Adam Glass doing? I can't deal with him asking someone to pay 400 dollars or more for a lunch date with him. Is it even for a charity? He seems so shocked that no one wants to bid that high.
Hahaha oh man if I lived in L.A. I’d be tempted to take up a collection so we could spend an hour making him listen to our thoughts on the show. :)
P.S. I think it’s raising money for his kid’s private school. I don’t know if you consider that a charity.
…oh sweet fancy-wicker-furniture Jesus, now I want to do this so bad.
Is it bad form to open a conversation with “Listen close and listen hard, fucktruck” ?
(Haha, remember how during 9x07, he was such an asshole to people tweeting him about the inaccuracies in his scripts and he was all “Well, nyah, we do because we want to and to pay for private school!” haha what a smarmy jerk)
