Breaking the Stereoypes

264700

The series supernatural is often criticised as being anti-feminist. I personally partially agree with these arguments like most of the female characters are either Demons or sacrificial lambs for slaughter.

Even though, that might be the case in some places, but that supernatural according to me is a classical re-defining of gender roles. Sam and Dean are often portrayed epitome of masculinity with their gruff voices, very often a cocky attitude (mostly coming from Dean) and false bravado. As we move from season to season we begin to scratch the surface and see that these guys are not some Alpha males but actual human beings with emotions. I have always seen supernatural as that, a redefining of the male roles.

Let’s begin with Sam Winchester. Sam who starts of as the more civilised (one with his fancy education and Stanford friends and a general dislike for the hunter lifestyle) is like your average guy who wants to live a ‘normal’ life. However, as the series progresses we see him breakout of this image into this super-hero hunter not just through his acting but also through his physical appearance. We see that he starts as tall and lanky fellow who later develops into this beefed up badass kind of guy. And then in Season 8 and 9 we see the general deconstruction of Sam of who he really is. He is that younger brother who always wanted to be just ‘normal’, who somewhere always blamed himself for Dean’s life. He believes that in the arrogance of his youth he has made many mistakes and the fact that Dean has to clean up his mistakes.

When we see Dean we see that he is the alpha male, the big brother and the quintessential play boy of the group. He is fully aware of his good looks and time and time again he en-cashes that part.  He likes his food greasy, his women frisky and his loves his car. I mean one would think could you BE any more alpha. But let’s scratch see again, is he all that he shows out to be?? Not really he is boy who is a son looking for his father’s approval, a self-sacrificing brother and a good soldier. We see that as the seasons progress we see that he is much more than rough and tough guy. He is scared of death (when the contract comes to an end), he is broken (when he comes back from hell) and afraid (when Cas tells him about the angels plan).

So the next time if you are a feminist or a woman watching this show don’t be offended when they show stereotypical or more often over compensating female characters give them A BREAK!  Cos these guys are busy breaking down traditional male stereotypes

Our Path To Heaven… (Part I)

Let´s just start BIG…

With our new, fandom-authority approved program

“14 Steps to Supernatural Heaven”

I guess we all agree that it wouldn´t matter where to spend eternity, as long as a certain pair of hunters (brotherly related, wearing plaid most of the time, strong tendency to excessive hugging) shares it with us. We would prefer Heaven tho, as it offers this AWESOME concept of “Create your own personal version!” – and be honest, who doesn´t like custom-made products, fully fitted to the expectations and needs of the user!

Wanna get there?

Follow our program….and climb the ladder!
