My eye was caught by a long reads title “Is Joss Whedon a bad feminist?”
Of course I clicked. I adore Joss, I can’t imagine anyone who grew up watching Buffy not adoring Joss. But the article isn’t about the feminism or lack there of in his work.
In fact, it’s more of an introduction to a list of other articles. I stopped reading after the intro.
Apparently Joss recently got a divorce. It happens, to what 60% of marriages now? Anyway, his ex decided to write an open letter lambasting him for being a horrible human. Everything he accomplished was because she built it for him and he cheated on her.
The blogger said she didn’t even feel surprise reading this, it made perfect sense to her. Huh? A spurned ex lover makes accusations and you accept them without any further thought to bias?
I think it’s where society is now. Of course, a woman was secretly the driving force behind Joss Whedon’s amazing body of work, because only women are capable of greatness. Men are worthless cheats.
Makes total sense. To someone, some where. To too many people too many places.
Not to me though.
