I'm not looking for an argument or anything, I'm just genuinely curious as to who you are and why you feel like that: gender? sexuality? I'm a very nerdy bisexual women, and I don't feel belittled by the show at all. I honestly believe that a lot of those things your post mentions are meant to be taken as a joke. The writers know who we are and they do appreciate us!
When I write articles, I try not to inject my own POV but to represent the views of other people in the fandoms I report on, as accurately and as fully as I can. So don’t just take my word for it that these concerns are valid ones that other fans have raised!
Shortly after I wrote the article that you’re talking about, SPN hosted an #AskSupernatural tag on Twitter before Comic Con. It was a disaster because SPN fans flooded the tag to ask the producers and crew about all of the things that my article covered. You can see a selection of some of the most common kinds of questions that the fans in the article I wrote about it.
I’m a reporter, so my articles are not my feelings. In general I try to keep my own feelings about SPN out of my writing on the show, which is probably why Destiel fans have accused me of shipping Wincest and Wincest fans have accused me of shipping Destiel, haha. (I’ve read both.)
My gender/orientation aren’t secrets, but they’re not relevant to my reporting in this case except that like everything else about me they inform my desire for diversity, representation, and fully realized women, GLBTQ, and other disenfranchised characters in the media I consume.
