To those destiel shippers attacking Jensen Ackles due to his tweets supporting the LGBT community and offering condolences,
How dare you make this about your ship? How dare you?
Queer people are dead and your first thought is to admonish somebody for tweeting their support.
I am queer.
I have rolled my eyes when people said shippers fetishize homosexuality, because hey, acceptance must be a factor, right? Today I see people who do not care. Shippers use queerness as a shield to attack others and I am ashamed to be part of that. Do you even care about us? I am grieving because we lost people in a homophobic attack. What you are doing is beyond reprehensible. It is homophobia in action. To put the opinions of an actor on your headcanons over the real-life, injured, dead, and dying disgusts me.
Not supporting your ship does not make a person a homophobe.
Choosing to call a person a homophobe and doubt the sincerity of their support in a time when their queer fans are grieving and looking for solidarity with the people they admire is damaging to the people who have been hurt by these events. Stop.
If you care at all about the LGBT community. Stop.
