Binary Phoenix

Writer, gamer, and all around geek. I have lots of fandoms. Binary refers to code not identity.

I know a lot of creative people and perhaps by correlation I know a lot of people who struggle with depression. They have told me (and they’ve told the world) how depression sits there, implacable, and drains the color out of the world until no success or joy matters. I believe them, and it becomes increasingly evident that no matter who you are or what you’ve achieved, that depression is a good liar and can make you believe none of it matters.
I know and love too many people with depression to believe that it’s something that’s shameful to talk about or to acknowledge. I want them alive and I want them here with us. If you have depression I want you alive and here with us. Don’t let the moment take you. Don’t be afraid to get help. The people who love you want you here. Believe it.

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Watch: One woman’s badass athletic achievement is silencing sexists across the Web 

Will American Ninja Warrior crown its first female champion at the top of Mount Midoriyama?

Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to complete a city finals course, in Dallas, and the first woman to ever make it to the finals in Las Vegas. If she manages to conquer Mount Midoriyama she could win the $500,000 prize and the title of American Ninja Warrior.

I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.

Some Thoughts on #AskSupernatural








Okay, so I may be late for the bandwagon on this one, but I’d like to talk a bit about this. Because it’s important. VERY IMPORTANT.


Throughout all of Season 9, the fans were not heard. The fans were not listened to. A large chunk of Supernatural’s audience was ostracized by higher up…

I’m not even a Destiel shipper…but it would make the show 3-dimensional. Maybe if MTV picked up the show, we would get some good female characters back. And I want Kevin and his mom back too!

All of this rant. All of it


You know what I’m going to re-blog this again because I am so happy you brought up that embarrassing Portia episode, when I got around to watching it I just sat in a nauseous stupor, what in holy hell were they thinking? 

thank you for the awesome tags, very-fabulous-fallen-angel.

Okay, everyone who’s a Supernatural fan needs to read this post. It’s ridiculously important and calls out the writers on their bullshit. The #AskSupernatural tag was not a disaster, in fact, it only could have done good. I love this show, don’t get me wrong, but it does have its issues. Writing or killing off important and influential characters is fine and all, but almost every single woman on the show has been subject to that fate. Charlie, an amazing character I’d love to see more of, will probably never comes back. Linda might, but I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Ellen and Jo do make appearances every one in a blue moon, but they didn’t need to be killed off.

Now, anytime a character is introduced and they are sure to be important, the likelihood that they will be white, male, and straight is ridiculously high. Every woman on the show is either a love interest or never seen again, and that does no justice to anyone. What really gets me about this new Demon!Dean arc is that the writers could have had so much to do with it, but the first thing they intend to do is give him a love interest? No demon has ever had a love interest (debatable Ruby). Don’t give me that ‘Dean’s smooth with the ladies’ crap, Jensen has said that Demon!Dean is a totally different character with a new personality and different motivations. 

As for Destiel, I’m not a shipper in the sense that I draw art and write fanfic about it, but I definitely see it. These two have been in a relationship for six years now. If Castiel had taken a woman vessel instead of a male, he would have been a love interest five seasons ago. But no, the writers refuse to acknowledge that these two clearly have something going on. They write this chemistry into the show, then say in the real world that they have nothing going on and are just friends. Yeah. Right. Dean is clearly bisexual, his siren was male for fucks sake. Castiel is technically gender-less and is only male because he’s possessing Jimmy.

Now, over here, we see the only character with a canon sexuality, Charlie Bradbury. Everyone’s favorite nerdy, computer hacker who happens to be a lesbian. They wrote her amazing character off, probably to never be seen again. Rufus was killed off in an episode nobody probably remembers, and Kevin was killed off for no particular purpose. Apparently, he was killed off for Sam and Dean to learn about Heaven being closed off thanks to Metatron, but any crap ghost hunt would have sufficed.

Seriously writers, get with the program and listen to your fans, they know what they want better than you do. 

TL;DR: I love Supernatural, but it needs to quit it with the misogyny, homophobia, and racism. Everything in the above post is totally right.

Sorry for the rant.
