They’ll eat their own: Joss Whedon went into cyber-hiding.

Joss Whedon is the screenwriter and director responsible for both Avengers blockbusters as well as television favorites “Firefly” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Unsurprisingly, Whedon is also an outspoken leftist who uses his Twitter feed to mock and ridicule conservatives. He thinks politicians who deny climate change should be denied penicillin, believes men should be denied the vote on “reproductive health,” and despises Justice Clarence Thomas and organized religion. He certainly hates all the right people — so why are progressives mad at him? It seems one of his strong female characters isn’t quite strong enough for radical, third-wave feminists.

I have not seen the movie (Or plan to unless it comes to USA Network) so I am going with what was said online. Apparently he dared to make the Black Widow somewhat human with frailties and that upset a lot of fans.

This is hilarious since Whedon has a history of creating strong female characters and some people have said that it has inspired many a young girls to grown into a strong female which is great. But there is a problem with that: Strong Women reject Bitchy-Whiny  Feminists.

Strong Women are what the want to be. They can be sexy and giggly or Serious and All-Business. They will worry about their figures or about their kids. They may do CrossFit or long-range rifle shooting. But what they are not and never will is purposeful Victims and will not tolerate Gamma Mates. They are looking for a partner, not Pajama Boy (or girl).

It seems that Whedon’s work was not appreciated by the Bitchy-Whiny  Feminists who are part and parcel of the political universe he lives in. And maybe that is the reason he creates Strong Women characters: The pickings are slim on his side of the fence. Insecurity is not sexy.

And I found this collage in Facebook. We may need all the cheese in Wisconsin to counter the whine.

  1. The CSGV drones are attacking, run for your lives.

    The world is collapsing around us and these people get all butt hurt over a movie. I truly wish that’s all I had to worry about.

    1. SJW’s have an Ouroborotic way about them. Maybe because they are the only ones that take themselves seriously?

  2. I’ve been a big fan of Whedon for most of his career — ‘Buffy’ debuted my sophomore year of high school with its protagonists in their sophomore year. I disagree with his publicly expressed politics, but find his narrative works some of the best arguments in favor of liberty and minarchy since Heinlein.

    I’ve also been a comic book fan since I was old enough to read.

    So, I saw the new Avengers film just this Sunday. It was a great movie: the solid action and special effects one expects in a summer blockbuster these days combined with Whedon’s mastery of making a large ensemble cast work. Black Widow doesn’t get too much screen-time, but no single character really does. She has one lengthy flashback scene (roughly the same as Thor and Cap get) but hers gives far more detail on her background. She has some good moments during each of the big fights and a potential relationship with Banner is hinted at. It’s an ensemble cast, she does her part well and the story treats her no different from any other member of the ensemble. (Hell, if anything, Widow and Hawkeye get far more to do than Thor, Cap, and Iron Man!)

    As a Whedon fan, as a comic book fan, and as a cinema fan, this movie satisfied me on all levels.

    Tumblr Feminists gotta get their Two Minutes Hate on, that’s all this is.

  3. Well then… I’m utterly disappointed to learn his politics…
    Firefly is one of the absolute best series and (Serenity) movie. I’ve spent some not small amounts of money on the brand, but that’ll stop today.
    I won’t fund him via licensing fees any more.
