This comment on my post about the lack of Latinos in BTVS/ATS

This is why — even though I don’t agree with arguments that Joss Whedon isn’t feminist — I will argue to death that he’s racist as fuck.

What. The. Fuck?!

You can’t be a feminist and be racist.*

You can’t be racist and be a feminist.*

It’s like basic fucking logic.

You cannot want equality for all with one hand and oppress and erase them with the other.

Again I say…What. the. fuck?!

*I realize that white feminism has a HUGE history of racism. I am not dismissing that. But we know better now. (And I realize not everyone does and not everyone understands this but it is still jarring to see it on a post)

I really hate Willingham’s arcs, fuck him

Nocti, I love you XD

Forever convinced DH and IDW had bets going on who could outsuck the other in those post-series books.

DH wins that one by a mile. Two words: Space. Frak. 

Well, yeah. Ryall and Willingham forgot who they were up against. No one wrecks a franchise like Whedon. Just look at Alien. Still hasn’t recovered.

  

If the previews of Wanda and the casting are any indication, you are so so right.

it blows my mind that no one, let alone angel, figured out that jasmine isn’t cordy like

sleeping with connor??? guilting angel about the stuff he pulled as angelus???  allowing the plan to remove angel’s soul??? like it doesn’t matter what information they needed or what greater good it would serve, she would never

literally the actual cordy was probably like “you fucking idiots”

Ugh this ALWAYS annoyed me too. Like I have seen people fanwank and say well Season 4 takes place over just a few days/weeks but still. It makes no sense to me. Ignoring anything romantic between them, Angel was her best freaking friend. And she was acting so out of character. Just another plot hole that is the swiss cheese season four.

Like it could have been the greatest season ever if they actually took some time and care and wrote it well. The idea behind it is amazing. But like usual, the execution faltered.

Joss Whedon on Twitter is at it again. This time with an almost ableist slur. [x]

Hi Kelly! I've been meaning to send this msg but I keep forgetting. Sorry if it's random. I just wanted to tell you that your ongoing criticism and general distaste for Joss Whedon gives me life on a daily basis and I love your tag for him. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Buffy, but I'm not gonna act like Whedon is some celestial gift to feminism, because no sir. No cookies for you. Anyway, I <3 your blog and I love when you take the piss out of him.

Aww, thank you grayface. This made my night.

Honestly, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Buffy and Angel. You have no idea how much I love these shows. I’ve watched them over and over again. I have lived and loved these characters. I don’t think people realize how often you have to watch a piece of media to dissect and discuss it. (This is part of the reason I don’t discuss shows I watch for fun over and over again. I watch them once, that is good enough.)

And if Whedon would just keep his mouth shut, I wouldn’t be AS critical. Oh, you can bet I would still be calling out his bullshit but not with the same fervor. I mean I watch American Horror Story and Nip/Tuck and nobody hates women like Ryan Murphy hates women. But I’m not tearing his ass up for it because he isn’t here claiming he is some feminist role model. Some of my favorite movies are terrible when it comes to women, POC, etc. I don’t talk about them because they aren’t claiming to be more than that. 

Whedon actively talks over women, women of color, and others feminists in an effort to become King Feminist. It is sad that we live in a world where HE gets lauded as some hero for doing the bare minimum, creating fully developed female characters. 

Thank you though. I’m glad to know someone else appreciates it besides me.
