People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

Anonymous: In relation to Dean's sexuality. The actor himself, has said that making dean bi or having him in love with Castiel makes him uncomfortable. NTM there is nothing so gay as straight guy friends. (or girl friends for that matter)

Jensen said playing a Bi character makes him uncomfortable? Didn’t he already play a bi character?

I don’t normally like to voice my opinions in the comment section of posts, but I felt that this needed to be said, and not just in the tags. I am absolutely appalled at all the comments on this post, including the ones that aren’t shown here. You all claim to be avid fans of Ackles and Supernatural, yet say horrid things like “like i give a shit about jensen ackles’ precious feelings” [x] and “You’re an actor! Grow up and kiss a dude” [x]. 

Another commenter had the audacity to reply to the post and say “’the actor himself’ yes b/c the actor’s interpretation is clearly the only one that counts here” [x], as if the actor playing the character somehow knows less than the acne riddled, pubescent child watching the show. 

I am disgusted with a good majority of the SPN fandom. You can bitch and complain all you want about how there’s subtext, so they should stop beating around the bush and out Destiel, but I do not see that happening, because Jensen has made it mildly clear that Dean is very straight and not romantically invested in Cas. Yes, there is subtext. Clearly. But this show is filled with dark themes and needs comedic relief, most commonly in the form of good-natured sexual implications. Just because actors screw around in the gag reel and say certain lines does not mean anything is there. The show needs some light hearted fun to help make you at ease with all the other horrific things going on.

Dean and Cas are very good friends, but that is it. They have been through a great deal of things together, which would obviously bring them together as friends.

There are people still fuming over how he handled a bisexual “question” at a panel. He was put on the spot, so clearly he isn’t going to be capable of giving a well-worded, rehearsed response. But he handled it just fine. He didn’t tell the girl she was a freak or disgusting for thinking his character was bisexual, he simply dismissed her question and wanted to move on, which if you ask me, is one of the more mature ways he could’ve handled it. 

I’m still baffled on how you can care so little about another person’s feelings that you would stoop low enough to request he dismiss his own feelings and comfort level just for the sake of feeding into your delusions for sixty minutes, once a week.

I cannot believe the people trying to undermine his feelings simply because he is straight. When did it become less about equality and more about putting gay or bisexual individuals on a pedestal? Isn’t it supposed to be about equality? Didn’t we just have this issue with feminism, and people thinking it was about making women more important than men, instead of making things fair and equal? 

Straight is more common and that’s just a fact. There is nothing wrong with any sexuality, or the lack thereof, but I am sick of children who do not understand sex and sexual relationships trying to turn everything into a gay pride parade. What do you expect the show to do, if it were to make Destiel a thing? Do you want sex scenes every episode? Do you want to see lube and ball gags? How about dressing them in drag? I think we need to think about this realistically. Dean Winchester is the epitome of a straight man. It just wouldn’t seem reasonable to change that about him, especially this late into it. 

There is so much more I want to say on this topic, but this is the fourth time I’m writing this and I am doing my best to deliver this message as cordially as possible: Dean Winchester and Castiel are not and most likely will not ever be a couple.
