Okay guys, deep breaths. Please.
Jared clearly came off a lot messed up but he just as clearly didn’t mean to say that women aren’t important. If you look at his past speech and actions you can see that he is not a misogynist. He was expressing frustration that almost every time the producers bring in a female cast character they force her into some weird kind of sexual or romantic interest role which pulls attention from what he personally is interested in, which is the brotherly relationship.
He TOTALLY could have said it differently but having watched it (I was at SDCC) I don’t think he realized how it sounded. It’s hard to be fun and charming and witty and eloquent several times a day in front of tons of people and he stumbled. It happens. Jensen and Misha probably looked uncomfortable because they could hear how it was coming out and it was really weird.
Seriously. Go look at what Jared supports and does and says usually. He fucked up a little but he’s not a dickhead. He’s a sweetheart. He credits women actors and colleagues by their skills and not only their beauty (my wife is the athletic one who can ride, etc etc). He doesn’t feel the need to make a big deal about his female costars doing stunts. Dude isn’t a misogynist. He just didn’t realize how he sounded and I bet Gen is talking to him about it right now.
This doesn’t mean that I’m saying you have no right to be upset. It did make me wince and wish I could shove him. I’m just saying to consider his actual history and words and actions before screaming that he’s an irredeemable misogynistic prick.
