I'm so glad I'm not the only one who can see something other than sexism in the use (and death) of women on this show. Starting at paragraph 6 (appearing to be a second section), [livejournal.com profile] liptonrm illuminates a message that really can't be sent with male characters unless anvils are applied.

On the other hand, the point is made in comments that "somehow a problem only finds resolution or has merit when men pay attention to it and validate a woman's feelings," using Bedtime Stories as an example. It sounds a little like the public assumption being tackled by vidding fandom, which is that "vidding" only started when men started doing it -- refusing to acknowledge the decades of female creativity that came before youtube and AMVs. In the case of Supernatural, I'm not sure whether that's an unconscious message or the inevitable consequence of having the primary point-of-view characters be two brothers.

Anyone who wonders what I mean by this phrase should check out this picspam of Jensen Ackles doing so.

Everyone else should check it out just to admire the versatility of the pretty.

Also note -- this does not include some additional expressions Jensen used as Alec in Dark Angel that he hasn't used as Dean.

Huge, and so, so worth it.

advice: read the headers. Don't read it for the gimmick, read it for the characterizations, which are LOVELY.
