People are still saying there’s not enough strong female characters in supernatural
First demon to kill an angel
disobeys the king of hell
In charge of heaven
Hacks Leviathan leader
Kick starts the apocalypse
Sacrifices herself to save dean
Need I say more
The problem isn’t that there haven’t been enough strong female characters. The problem is that as soon as any female character shows the slightest hint of character development, start become complex, interesting, and fully humanized, they get killed off.
It’s like the show is saying NO. BAD WOMAN. THAT’S NOT BEING SEXY AND SASSY. IF YOU KEEP DOING THAT I MIGHT HAVE TO IDENTIFY WITH YOU AS A FULLY-FORMED PERSON. OH NO. BETTER KILL YOU OFF AND LEAVE YOU AS A TRAGIC MARTYR OR WHAT-THE-FUCK-EVER INSTEAD. YEAH. OKAY. THAT LEAVES ONLY THREE WHITE DUDES AS THE MOST IMPORTANT. GOOD. YES. THE PATRIARCHY IS SAFE.
"I’m not ‘pro-abortion,’ that’s the very one clear thing I want you to understand. Abortion is not the right answer for every pregnancy. And it’s not the right answer for every flawed pregnancy, and it’s not the right answer for every rape and incest patient. But when the patient knows it’s the right answer for her, then I want to be here for her."
"Girls and women, if no one has ever told you this before, or if you just have trouble believing it: you are good, you are whole, you are yours. You do not exist to please men, and your value as a human being is not contingent upon your sexual capital."
"If something is popular it can still be good. Just ask Shakespeare. Or the Beatles. Or peanut butter."
"One illustration of why: when I first became a feminist twenty years ago, I had an old-school feminist (wearing bright pink lipstick, mind you) ask, “What’s a feminist like you doing wearing a miniskirt?” I said to her, “I got out of the patriarchy because it was always telling me what to do. I’ll be damned if I let anyone else do it, either.” I told her that automatically rejecting everything the patriarchy demanded was allowing the patriarchy to control you just as much as if you did everything it ordered. As long as you were simply reacting, you were still granting the patriarchy all the power. Part of feminism, to me, was the freedom to choose for myself after carefully thinking out the issue, and I wasn’t going to cede that power to ANYONE, ever again. Besides, damn it, I had good legs, and I wasn’t above showing them off."
