This scene is so fucking pivotal for Dean’s sexuality, Destiel, and for accurate queer representation in the media. release-your-inhibitions said it best: That’s the moment when it clicked in his head that you can be gay and still be manly.
Dean has grown and changed so much since season one, where he was basically just a clone of his dad and all he cared about was making John happy, but it was obvious that he was still struggling with reconciling that Dean with who he his now. He’s trying to find a middle ground where he can express himself through clothes and LARPing and such but still feel like he’s “manly” and tough. I think he needed to see this. Needed to see that two men can be romantically involved and still be masculine. That your sexuality doesn’t have to dictate how you act or how you dress. It doesn’t have to be flamboyant and obvious. It can just be a part of who you are without changing your whole personality. I think he’s finally realized that. And that’s beautiful.
I also think it’s just amazing that Supernatural manged hit the nail on the head (again) with having gay characters whose whole personalities weren’t about being gay. Here you have these two very “masculine” men watching a show about hunting and drinking beer. And they’re gay. They’re not dressed head to toe in pride gear singing Broadway and shooting rainbows out of their asses. They’re just two regular guys who happen to be gay. That’s just really amazing to me.
i didn’t even think of this at first because look at it the other way around too. dean just watched a cupid work its magic on someone. acting on orders from heaven. let that sink in for a bit. dean had it confirmed for him that heaven is actually seriously honestly indifferent to sexual orientation. heaven sanctioned these two burly-ass dudes’ star-crossed love. heaven — its most basic programming — thinks it’s totally cool for a dude to love a dude. not to establish bloodlines. not to carry out the kind of fucked-up shit that happened with him and sam and michael and lucifer. heaven wanted these two old guys to fall in love with each other and that’s it. and that’s monumental. because this means that it’s okay by cas too. heaven sanctioned two guys being with each other. DEAN SAW THAT HEAVEN SANCTIONED TWO GUYS BEING WITH EACH OTHER. and that look in his eyes?. kids that’s called hope. backflips the fuck out. (via basiacat)
