On tinhats

It says something about SPN fandom, I think, that my first reaction to seeing the announcement on SuperWiki that Jensen and Danneel are having a baby was to check Fandom Wank to see if the tinhat drama had turned up there yet.

Of course it had.

I'm just...I don't even know if amused is the right word anymore. I'm baffled, and frankly creeped out, by the serious investment these people have in a couple of B-list celebrities that they don't know and will probably never meet. The fetishizing of homosexuality (but only when it involves famous pretty men!), the threats of forcible outing in 'revenge' (for...marrying women and reproducing, apparently), the gross misogyny toward all of the women involved, it's just so incredibly depressing and sad.

The fact that these people think they're WARRIORS FOR EQUALITY is just topping on the cupcake. Especially since, as afaik, most of them are straight women. It's like, seriously, I do not need you guys on my side.
