About showing support and respect through an icon

By now, many of you have probably already seen the "Respect" icon that I and many other lj-ers started using as our default icons. As one member of the Supernatural fandom, I find myself in total agreement with the motives and sentiment behind dodger_winslow's creation of this beautiful icon. Please read more about its purpose here, on her lj site:

The icon and the meaning behind it...

Please spread the word, pass it on, pay it forward and go forth and multiply :).
Supernaturally yours,

I only visit a few sites/LJs, so I didn't really know what was going on with the "fat" Jensen stuff (thank god). But some people either need glasses or a dictionary to look the word up if they think Jensen is fat!

I also don't understand why Jensen seems to be the one that catches a lot of flak from "fans" (if you can call them that), and Jared seems to be perfect and no one posts anything negative about him. I just don't get it.

*Both* guys appear to be nice, friendly, well-mannered, gracious, and love the fans.

Whatever, fandom.

Respect Icon

Both guys seem like good people and, since they're the reason we're all in this fandom anyway, they deserve a lot better from us than the b.s. that's been circulating out there these days. I'm not on any comms or forums that are involved in this negativity but, from some of the fellow lj-er's sites that have been exposing and denouncing the negativity, I've gotten the gist of a fair bit of it and it all just makes me sad and mad.

That's why I like this icon of dodger's. It's not issue specific, it refers to both boys/actors and it's positive which is what this fandom needs a large dose of at the moment.
