Whedon's been a male feminist from the jump. According to Wikipedia, his strong female characters are an homage to his mother, and he believes in "womb envy."

Whedon has always been at the forefront of the super badass action female archetypes and tropes. He clearly pedestalizes women and has issues.

All his female characters are skinny little twigs taking down linebackers with roundhouse kicks.

He's always been a joke but he's allowed to get away with a lot because it's all sci-fi or comic stuff.

Now famous director Joss Whedon is throwing his two cents in. He has some good film credits to his name but now it looks like he is a male feminist tard and SJW, equating GamerGate to the Ku Klux Klan:

Given his love of hot, rake-thin, teenage-looking girls kicking arse in skimpy outfits, I'd suggest the Whedon name is equated with monetarised objectification of jailbait-looking girls, and the female empowerment bullshit is plausible-deniability.

Jessica Valenti has an article on The Guardian regarding this. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree...sing-women

The comment feed is actually encouraging:

'Don't forget, to Ms Valenti a crime by any man is a crime by all men.'.

RE: #GamerGate thread (formerly "Zoe Quinn: Feminism, Game Journalims, and Corrup...
On the subject of Whedon: the guy has predominantly cast hot white women in almost every role in his shows and movies. Villain, hero, small role, large one, almost every single female character who is a part of the story in his shows will be a hot white woman. There are very few exceptions, not even after he became one of the premier geek gods and got creative control over his projects. There's a character in his most famous television show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, who was envisioned as a nerd. In the pilot episode they actually had a chick who looked the role (a fat mediocre looking girl).

[Image: tve35713-00000000-760.jpg]

And here's what he replaced her with.

[Image: Willow-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-673872_400_324.jpg]

Knowing the dark side of Hollywood, it's likely that Whedon got to tap a lot of his talent. The more tappability around the better eh? But hey, he's a noble feminist because all his hot white women characters have magical powers that let them kick men around. He's clearly our moral superior.

RE: #GamerGate thread (formerly "Zoe Quinn: Feminism, Game Journalims, and Corrup...
Had an ex-gf way into Buffy back in the day:

Buffy briefly died, meaning another girl took on the mantle of chosen one, becoming a slayer. Cue Hot Jamaican Slayer. Yay, diversity!

[Image: Kendra.jpg]

She was killed three episodes later, and replaced with a hot white chick who couldn't act worth a shit, who lasted for 28 episodes.

[Image: eliza-dushku-18v.jpg]

Whedon was so impressed with her talent of not being able to act worth a shit that he created an entire show around her, where she was programmed with a new personality each week, thus requiring her to 'act' as an entirely-new character.

Note that although she looks like the other chick who couldn't act worth on a shit on the show he created in between these two, the resemblance is probably entirely co-incidental.

[Image: esq-summer-glau-pic-0311-lg.jpg]

Or the other chick on Buffy, who ended up on the spin-off, 'Angel'.

[Image: 5b1c513819d7743b608285f0f3301a3a.jpg]

Note that she isn't the other chick from 'Angel'. You seeing the pattern yet? Repeatedly casting your obvious 'type' is nice work if you can get it.

Willow From Buffy:

The lead from 'The Cabin In The Woods', produced by Joss:

[Image: 95c4ccb57e09c4d005dbae74714969c4.jpg]

Again, I'm sure this repeating obvious skinny brunette with tit-length hair fantasy archetype of his is pure co-incidence, and in no way related to Hitchcock's predatory casting of Ice Blondes. I mean, Whedon's a male feminist! He'd never be a serial predator, and I'm in no way implying. Don't you see how strong and powerful his repeated, ultra-specific sexualised woman women is are?

Be a male feminist, and you too can have a hot wife like this:

Yep. At the apex of all the anti-male cultural Marxism are people, usually straight white males (with a few exceptions like Nick Denton) who get money, power and sex from propagating it. Get to the top and then you can contaminate the culture to your heart's content while being immune to it all.

Reading about the gaming community successfully fighting back against the feminists/SJWs really warms my heart.

Over the years, the feminists/SJWs have been able to weasel their way into just about every male space, and they thought that this was going to be a piece of cake and that they were just going to steamroll over those "nerds".

However, the gaming community, along with other supporters have put up a lot of resistance and have now become a massive juggernaut force to be reckoned with.

It will be interesting how this will all play out.

RE: #GamerGate thread (formerly "Zoe Quinn: Feminism, Game Journalims, and Corrup...
I'm really glad that #GamerGate is making some strides towards reason and logic in the gaming and public sphere and even pushing corporate sponsors to rethink who they support. That's a good thing, and I hope it continues to vindicate gamers (and men) and at the same time continue to reveal the hypocrisy and irrationality of the SJW and Feminist mindset (not to mention the mainstream media and government).

But let's keep this all in perspective.

WE ARE UNDER ATTACK.

All day every day. And have been so for decades now. It's not going to end anytime soon.

(By “we” I mean thoughtful, independent, accountable productive masculine men.)

Sure we’re holding our ground & even ‘winning’ a couple battles here and there and things seem to slowly be getting a little better. But the war has largely already been taken to our doorstep and there is a hell of a lot left to do. It will take decades. Corrupt SJW ideologues are not going to go away anytime soon.

This Progressive / Cultural Marxist or whatever battle has been going on for 50+ now. These fascists sneakily inserted their doctrine into mainstream culture via the media, TV, movies, academia etc. and it’s been inculcated into practically everything we have in the West these days (including corporatism, daily life and even certain parts of religion). That isn't going to change overnight just because of #GamerGate.

So if you are young and just getting started and/or just started learning about the "Red Pill" just know that this is only the beginning. This will be a LIFELONG battle, not something that we all somehow “Fix” in the coming years. I'm expecting to be fighting it the rest of my life.

Whether it was all planned by the powers that be or just ended up this way doesn’t really much matter at this point – we are where we are.

It’s up to each and every one of us to do our part, bit by bit, one step at a time. You can do it subtly or overtly however you think is best, but I think part of the takeaway here should be our work is just beginning. Just by talking with friends and family and then branching out I think you/we can all make a difference. That doesn't mean you have to shout it out from the rafters but just having the mindset we do and spreading our views, thoughts and ideas is a very good start.

Sorry if this sounds like a rant but I had to get it out.

Keep hope alive!

No no no you see, you're supposed to be a good little progressive. You're supposed to be bored at your horrible job and click through Gawker articles as a form of escapism.

Then when you go home you're supposed to be grateful for that your wife who looks like this, because otherwise you are fat-phobic:

[Image: land-whale-regular-01.jpg]

Will give you a pittance of affection en route to a divorce.

Meanwhile as another form of escapism at home you're supposed to watch Joss Whedon's shows, giving him money and power so he can bang all those thin feminine girls that you aren't supposed to, because, you know, rape culture.

Buy your indulgences and live the virtuous life by being an SJW. Otherwise you are sinning against equality. Virtuous male feminists like Joss Whedon say so.

You believe in equality, don't you?

Hitchcock's wife wasn't a looker, either. There's a world of difference between the situational attraction required to secure a brief rut and the maintenance of hand required to keep a hot wife from nuking everything and taking half your assets.

I would still go after Whedon for that angle since he is obsessed with that type of women. Its must grate on his soul.

To clarify, Adobe didn't withdraw ads from Gawker, it didn't have any to begin with. They just requested their name be removed from a list of Gawker sponsors.

And Mercedes Benz has reinstated their ads supposedly.

Whedon is a fantastic writer in my opinion. He's been able to add some depth to previously lacking comic book stories...albeit he's added the depth by adding much more personality to the female characters as the male ones were already well developed.

All of that being said he's essentially a comic book writer that looks weird and that is a good recipe for SJW type views. Don't discount all of his characters though. If firefly he did write 'saffron'...a damsel in distress that is really a black widow super slut...which is pretty much the embodiment of the kind of manipulative women written about on this forum. Which also got Christina Hendricks noticed.
