The "discussion" over the female-centric SPN spin-off is turning me into a fierce feminist bitch.
I should be used to it. After all, I love Claire Novak, a character so hated by a portion of the fandom, that they wish for her death. But this time it's obvious. The naysayers are open with the fact that they don't want female characters in the spin-off and that they don't think women can "sell".
Even a character they all claim to love - Jody Mills - isn't worthy of having a story centered around her because she is female. And I'm like..... JFC WHY ARE YOU SO AGAINST FEMALE CHARACTERS WHYYYYYYY
The sad thing? I should be - AM - over the moon that I'm finally getting Wayward Daughters, that I finally have a chance to see more of Claire, but I'm also resigned to the fact that there is going to be hate and negativity each step of the way.
They will be cheering for the show to fail, they'll actively campaign against it. If it's picked up, if it gets half a season, a whole season.... They will be there to hatewatch it. And when/if the show fails, they will claim that as their victory.
I wish SPN fandom was less batshit crazy.
