RU serious? Demon Dean was horrible to Anne Marie and called her a skank for her truth telling. He disrespected and touched a stripper and nearly beat the bouncer to death.
Yeah see, this is my problem! His treatment of women, especially in “Black”, all points towards his character being a raging sexist BUT there are some strange instances of care towards some of the women he meets, such as protecting Ann-Marie and oddly asking her to go away with him. These could be out-of-character moments, due to bad writing but, if Dean is so disrespectful towards women (calling Ann-Marie a ‘skank’), then why does he kill Lester for cheating on his wife, instead of killing the wife herself, which were Crowley’s orders?
This could be down to a number of reasons: Dean wanting to undermine/rebel against Crowley, a desire for power or control, an over-active need to kill no matter who it is. Whatever the reason, Dean seemed to disagree completely with Lester’s misogynistic view of the role of men and women.Dean may have just been looking for a hypocritical excuse to fuel his addiction, but the feeling I got from these first two episodes is one of a strong, rooted, animalistic struggle for the ownership of the female species which, at first glance, can come across as simply being kind and caring.
(As a side note, this perception of Demon Dean’s caring nature could also be hinting that there is still a trace of humanity left in him.)
When Dean is seen interacting with the stripper, he mainly uses verbal abuse whereas when the bouncer comes over to him Dean instantly turns physically aggressive and violent. It’s like he sees every man as competition and someone else to kill, which may explain his strained relationship with Crowley as he can’t stand anyone with more status than him.
As of yet, we have not seen Dean physically fight or murder a woman despite his obvious craving to kill. I’m not saying that this isn’t sexist, quite the opposite. This is sexism on a whole new level. Dean sees women as precious objects to be protected and loved (e.g something to f*ck) and other men as something that’s going to jeopardise that and, more importantly, his dominance over them.
With Ann-Marie, the club stripper and Mindy, Lester’s wife, Dean is shown to become overly-protective towards them when another male is introduced and it always turns to violence and, in Lester’s case, death.
Just to be clear, I personally do not think that this is any indication that the show or the writers/cast/crew are sexist as they are definitely not condoning Demon Dean’s behaviour. Personally, I saw a lot of power and independence in both Ann-Marie and the stripper, who both refused to be dominated by Dean any more and left the party.
