It’s okay - I think a lot of us can be kind of sensitive to language because some of us are survivors and some of us have been… er… “discussing” the abuse issue with some other tumblr users for a while. Apparently there was an issue with one other tumblr user in particular that got a little exciting - I only saw part of it - but I’m sorry if we made you feel at all upset or put down. I can only speak for myself with any certainty but I doubt that was anyone’s intent.
And it’s hard to accept when one of your favorites has attributes you find difficult to accept. I was never exactly thrilled with the way Dean treated Sam but I liked him in general until season 8. The thing is that he can improve if he chooses to - if he sees that he’s hurting Sam and he decides that’s a bad thing. And he has other attributes that are good. They don’t change the fact that he’s abusive but the fact that he’s abusive doesn’t change those good traits. He’s smart, he’s cunning, he’s an excellent hunter and he’s remarkably good with kids. He’s funny, he enjoys cooking and he’s even kind of domestic.
So even though it’s hard to accept that Dean’s abusive toward Sam, it doesn’t mean that fans can’t or shouldn’t love him. Sam does. We see it every time he looks at Dean, every time he asks if he’s okay or checks on him. Fans should be willing to talk about Dean’s abuse, and we shouldn’t waive it away or say “well they’re both flawed so whatever,” but we can still appreciate Dean’s good qualities.
Wow I kind of got off topic here. But I guess that at the end of the day Dean’s abusive qualities are facets of a three-dimensional character and the three-dimensional characters are what make Supernatural so gripping.

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
