A) I LOVE SCHNAUZERS
B) THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN
joss whedon, noted feminist who fired charisma carpenter for daring to be pregnant
joss whedon, white cishet male who decides that he gets to define feminism and rebrand it to make it more appealing to himself, while also erasing the entire history of feminism and ignoring the existence of the term womanist
joss whedon, making a speech about feminism whose only mention of a female is to dismiss her entirely
joss whedon, deciding that the biggest problem with feminism is in its name and not its history of being racist, transphobic, and homophobic
joss whedon, lacking all self-awareness when twisting a brilliant junot diaz quote about poc representation to mean representation for white cis females
joss whedon, trying to equate sexism and racism while completely ignoring that woc exist and can experience both at the same time
joss whedon saying equality is important!!!!! but not casting a single asian person in his show grounded in the fusion of asian - western culture and also equating reavers (literally referring to them as the monsters of the story) with the apache
wait hold up, ignore all that, i should just be super grateful to joss “what is privilege and intersectionality?” whedon for having the courage to speak over women on a continuous basis
Joss Whedon, who came most excitedly to his co-writer on Firefly with the idea of an episode based entirely on the brutal gang rape of Inara, therefore giving her initial characterization as a rape victim, since it would have been one of the very first episodes. Also, apparently this is the only situation that would cause Mal to “treat her like a lady.”(x)
Joss Whedon, when asked about his future hiring of Asian actors, given his envisioned (i.e. stolen from Blade Runner) ‘Asian’/American future, gave a highly problematic and ignorant answer ( x 18:15 minute mark)
Joss Whedon, who at that same panel, kept making fun of himself for “being a woman” for crying.
Joss Whedon, who felt the need to discuss Black Widow in terms of her moral inferiority to the men in the Avengers, because Tony “put my loved ones at risk for my self-indulgent, self-destructive behavior” Stark, Clint “villain turned spy for S.H.I.E.L.D.” Barton, and Bruce “leveled entire cities out of anger at myself” Banner are deemed by Whedon as “heroes” and she’s just a “spy” without the “moral high ground or any of that good stuff" of her male peers. (x)
I love both Avengers and Firefly, but Whedon and I are fucking done professionally.
Alison Hendrix in her checkered pajamas talking about her blackmarket gun dealer named Ramon and her local musical with a very high Felix in ass-less chaps is LITERALLY everything I’ve been waiting for during this hiatus.
