Oh, Adam Glass, you "do not appreciate" being called out for queerbaiting?
This is literally the same thing that abusers and oppressors do all the time. When confronted about something hurtful they’ve done, they turn it around on the victim(s), and say that their feelings are hurt by the accusation instead of owning up or apologizing.
And really? The whole “I have gay friends” thing? We’re gonna go for that one? “I know gay people so I can’t be homophobic or problematic! I have just announced that I luv the gays so I am now immune to your criticism!”
Seriously, that’s not how it works. If you really love your queer friends and family, take the time to listen and understand what exactly queerbaiting is and why it’s so hurtful. Understand the charges against the other Supernatural writers before blindly defending them.
And if you really write the characters “not for any one group, but for all,” then please stop catering to heterosexual fans and then pretending you’re not.
