Joss Whedon’s problematic writing choices

Criticizing Joss Whedon’s problematic writing choices does not translate to hate."


Use of the word problematic almost guarantees manipulative language.


"Also, word of advice, if you want people to stop accusing you of being racist or sexist"

...move to another planet because Feminist use those words as a way of controlling people.
"then you might want to stay away from the following:

Having the lead female protagonist of your show almost raped by her love interest and then have the showrunner praise the rapist as being his favorite character and having the best character development (Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer)"


She raped him right back. They were both pretty twisted, but he had the excuse of being a soulless monster. He lived in a world of rape and murder and was surprised to find he didn't want that any more.

Real people are messy. Only feminists and other fanatics don't want characters that are like real people.

"Plan to have a prostitute gang raped to feed into the character development of her male love interest (Inara, Firefly)"Heaven forbid something bad would happen in a show that happens in real life. All the female characters must stay safe at all times. No adventures. No fun. Grey walls. No sounds. Feminism.

"Have a show that heavily features Asian culture and religions, but then fail to cast any Asian actors (Firefly)"

Like the way we have heavily Roman influenced western cultures without Italians? The world: how does it work?


"Claim that having Asian actors was unnecessary because one of your white actors “kind of looked Asian.” (Summer Glau, Firefly)"

A quote without references. Typical SJW bullshit.

"Fire your lead actress for getting pregnant and then spend the next season shitting all over her character (Charisma Carpenter, Angel)"

Again, no references, just an opinion. Dismissed as more bullcrap.

"Inviting that lead actress to come back to the show, promising her that she’ll stick around until the final episode, only to turn around and kill her character off at the last moment as revenge (Charisma Carpenter, Angel)"

Soooo, you've never heard of this thing called 'evidence', then, have you? No?


"Creating the single most racist depiction of a black female character by making her violent, savage, animalistic and so dumb that she isn’t even able to speak"

You realise she was supposed to be some protohuman? But they couldn't portray one so they took a human and slapped make-up on her?

"these incredible supernatural powers came with a terrible price: she lost her humanity forever. "

" then reveal that the way she became the first slayer, was by having a group of old men force a demon into her body without her consent (The First Slayer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer)"

Gosh. People - living in an era when cannibalism was normal, when rape was normal, in a story where monsters ruled the land and humans were in danger of extinction - disregarded her consent. Oh no. Heavens to Betsy.

You do realise that if a Dam engineer has to pull a lever to murder hundreds of people, in order to save thousands from a flood, that's what they do? That's a real world, mundane ethical decision?

Fuck. Feminists are fucking useless, seriously, I can just imagine them trying to get a consensus decision while a time bomb was ticking next to them... "is it RIGHT to cut the red wire, or are we dishonouring the memory of those Native Americans who died horribly so long ago? Should we cut the white wire instead, even if it isn't the one the Patriarchy says will save us?"

Boooom!


"Have one of the most popular female superheroes referred to as a “cunt” by the main villain (Natasha Romanoff, Avengers)"

Oh no! A villain did something bad! How shocking. I don't care if this one is real, what the fuck, I say, what the fuck do you expect a VILLAIN to do? Be considerate of preferred pronouns?

Jesus Bloody Christ.

"Claim that because a female character was unable to have children, that she was considered a monster (Natasha Romanoff, Avengers: Age of Ultron)"

You pulled that nugget out of your arse. Look, those who saw the movie know you are trying to spin your butt-baby into gold, but it ain't going to fly. She was a monster because she killed people. It was shown on screen. Guy in the hood, defenceless, strapped to a chair. She was a child murderer. That's the bit you cannot grasp.

The loss of her uterus was a source of pain, not shame.

"Taking one of the strongest female superheroes in the MCU and turning her into an outlet for her male love interest to pour his man angst "

Oh, the bigotry just pours out of you doesn't it. Just like a fucking Nazi would talk about "jew pain". A man can't just feel pain in your mind - you specify it as man pain, because who gives a shit if men are in pain?

You can't bear to treat a man as an equal.

Bruce and Natasha shared intimacy. That means sharing pain. Sharing vulnerability. That must piss you off so much - the idea your 'strong' woman might treat a man as a human being.


" completely dump her in the end without any expression of gratitude for all she did for him (Natasha Romanoff, Avengers: Age of Ultron)"

He put her needs ahead of his own. He sacrificed his happiness to make sure she was safe. Only a feminist can look at that and decide he's still - SOMEHOW - victimising her!


"Have one of the most popular superheroes in the MCU joke about raping women (Tony Stark, Avengers: Age of Ultron)"

In such an absurd way that no-one but a feminist could take it seriously - just like when they joked about Hawkeye being impotent.


"Feature two characters who were originally of Jewish-Romani descent and then have them whitewashed by hiring white actors to play them (Wanda Maximoff and Pietro Maximoff, Avengers: Age of Ultron)"

You have no idea how much you sound like a neo-nazi. I'm not aware of any other group that thinks Jews can't be white.

These are how they have been depicted by Marvel.

Having two Jewish-Romani characters volunteer for a Nazi organization"

You never actually watched the movies, did you?


"Have the audacity to redefine feminism and re-brand it because he found feminism distasteful."

More butt nuggets.


"Constantly using the “break the cutie” trope to punish his supposedly “strong female characters.” (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Avengers: Age of Ultron)"

Which he does to male characters too.

"Using the threat of sexual violence against his lead female protagonists on multiple occasions (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Avengers)"

You claim this is what happens to women constantly in real life but can't bear to see it addressed in fiction? But you have no problems with murders, cannibalism, torture and genocide?
"Check yourself, fandom. "

Go fuck yourself, SJW.


"These criticisms of Joss Whedon’s work have been long-standing and are completely valid. "

Oh, I get it. You're 13. You're 13, and think if you say it's "completely valid" then you don't have to deal with anyone pointing out that it fucking well is not.

http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130102104737/breakingbad/images/8/8c/Shut-up.gif

No, we will not shut up. You are a liar, a slanderer and a bigot. Let's face it - you suck!

"So, before you get on your high horse and try to accuse his detractors of being bitter fangirls"

Since you don't seem to have watched the things you are talking about, the term 'fan' should be removed.

"his detractors are bitter girls"

Yep, that's it. He creates, you can't, but oh god, you know how to whine.



"take a look at all the fucked up shit your problematic fav has said and done, and then we’ll talk"

Go fuck yourself with a spade. Then we'll talk. Just rinse that thing when you're done, I have gardening to do.
