What we need more in media-
Desexualized female characters
Mentally Ill characters
What we don’t need more of
2 or 3 Cishet white dudes as the protagonists with a bunch of queerbaiting.

Watched 9x19 and that must have been the best characterisation of female characters on supernatural since Jo and Ellen died (rip)
and it passed the Bechdel test
Alex/Annie/Anne was a great once-off character and I hope we see her again
dean and sam pissed me off at first with their complete lack of empathy about victims of stockholm syndrome (i suspect some of dean’s callousness is coming from the Mark of Cain situation) but I was very relieved that they admitted they were wrong and helped cure Alex at the end
There were some sexist tropes still used but the way they resolved it (i.e. Alexis not dying, being seen sympathetically, Jody beign portrayed as a good hunter who could stand on her own) was way better than spn have handled women in the past
Also I really enjoyed Jody going all Criminal Minds BAU profiling to figure out Mama’s motivations and getting inside her mind which eventually led Alex to help Jodie kill the woman who abducted her

the use of the term ‘bitch’ in an episode where the most important players on the board were women is sort of stupidly important.
on the rocky road to individuation one ends up crossing paths with one’s anima or animus -anima for men and the animus for women- and dean has been crossing paths with aspects of his anima all season long. with robin - with suzie - even charlie.
and in this episode dean crosses paths with three women, all of whom represent aspects of his personality and experiences and trauma. dean is the bad mother selfishly bent on keeping her daughter by her side at all costs, dean is alex/annie, the child who has been shaped into a monster by the choices of her parents, and dean is even jody mills, defender of the innocent and protector of the weak.
dean’s go-to insult is always ‘bitch, and that is in part because of the fact that he has never in his life come to terms with his feminine aspects.

it’s pretty telling that sam has a standard facial expression for “you two idiots seriously still don’t even realize how in love you are”
(Sam’s life really sucks.)
