Whedon On Romney (by WhedonOnRomney)
Not just a heroine but a hero
#When people say that Joss Whedon is all hype #And completely overrated #And that his writing isn’t actually as genius as I think it is #It annoys me #But even if all that is true #It still doesn’t matter #Because he gave us Buffy #He stood up and declared it was time for women to kick ass #It was time to give girls someone to look up to who was strong and independent #and paved the way for other strong woman to grace out tv screens #And if that’s all he ever did that would be more than enough
Interrupting my Dair spam for Joss Whedon and Buffy because Buffy is just so important as a female hero.
haters to the left. joss is a visionary.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BtVS) fans have long debated whether it was genius or the opposite that led the show’s creators in season six to involve Buffy in a violently sexual affair with Spike, a vampire. Dark as it was, the story of their relationship impressed me as an insightful metaphor for the psychodynamics of narcissistic disturbance. As I will argue, Buffy’s state of mind throughout her affair with Spike was a nuanced, accurate reflection of how it feels to suffer from narcissistic pathology.
i get the feeling that when joss whedon is on staff he plans to kill everyone and then works backwards from there
