I ship Destiel because it means something to me that Dean has found a certain amount of faith in Castiel. Castiel isn’t perfect. He’s made mistakes and been absent or misguided. Nonetheless Dean trusts him and believes in him because he knows him. And it means something equally to me that Cas has discovered humanity and a sense of purpose through Dean’s example and perseverance even when Cas and Dean were at odds.
These two have a history. They are both very distinct characters who have built upon one another in a real way, through actual events. They have moments of bad, good, romantic, and I believe even sexual tension. They and their relationship come from a place that has been well thought out and given time and reason. I will always find that infinitely more satisfying as a means to romantic endgame than I ever will if either Cas or Dean simply find completeness out of the ‘love of a good woman.’
It’s not that it would be heterosexual. It’s not that it would be a woman. It’s the fact that they want to give these characters a ‘meaningful’ relationship without putting meaning behind it. You can’t rely on this archetype that women civilize men and expect me to buy that whatever Mary Sue you’ve inserted is Cas’s, Dean’s, or anybody’s true love. These characters are far too well written for that. If you’re going to put anybody in their lives (man, woman, genderless entity) and make them that important to them then you better do the writing to back it up.

The cat just jumped up on my bed and came up to me
And she lifted her paw and just set it in my cleavage, and just stared up at me silently
Kitty i dont understand are you trying to tell me something
is my dress too low for your kitty standards
