Supernatural: Violence Begets Violence

I’ve talked about the issue of abuse in other posts, but this is in response to a Tumblr post here, which argues that Dean was abused by John but Sam never suffered abuse. I beg to differ. (more…)

Unpopular Opinion: John Winchester

I wonder if those fans who love and respect John Winchester are more likely to be Dean fans and if that’s why it easier for them to accept his blind obedience to his father and why so many of them see Sam’s rebellion as ‘whiny’ and selfish.

More Daddy Issues and ‘What About Teh Gays?’

This piece is a response to a Tumblr post that said that Dean was feminized, “symbolically castrated,” by being the nurturer and caregiver in the family, and that made him fear women and intimacy. The post also talked about how every homosexual relationship in the series was shown as a joke or in a negative light. Below is my response, which is also a bit of companion piece to the Daddy Issues post about Sam and Dean.

Fans talk about Dean’s “daddy issues” all the time, but what about Sam? (more…)

Daddy Issues: Dean Winchester


I originally wrote a post on Tumblr about John and Dean’s relationship, and in it I wrote, John Winchester: Bad father or worst father ever? O.o (more…)
