okay i'm done today

To all my overachievers who don’t get praise from parents and loved ones anymore because it’s just expected of you to do well: I’m proud that you passed that test, I’m happy you graduated with honors, I love that you try your hardest all the time.

I know sometimes the lack of support and encouragement from those whose opinions matter the most to you can be disheartening, but keep pushing through and being the amazing person you are.

how to delete someone else’s news article

So I am for the most part oblivious to this Joss Wheden issue. I read your post and the link about his wife. But from just these few things I am a bit confused as to what's wrong with him. I tried looking a bit more through some of your Buffy tags, but seemed to failed to find more. Apart from cheating on his wife, what makes this guy so bad and a Hyprocite on Feminism? Because I'm trying to relate Unfaithfulness to Anti-feminist or Hypocrite on Feminism.

This is a whole minefield I don’t have the time or particular inclination to delve into with great detail right now. But some high points to think about, which might help steer you in the right direction.

On the issue of fidelity, it’s not “just” that he cheated on his wife, or that he lied to her for fifteen years, or that he consistently manipulated her into believing the things he wanted her to believe, or that he used her as a prop to maintain the image he wanted to project to the world, or that in his letter to her he basically blamed the patriarchy for him being a spineless little toad who wanted to indulge his most base desires and maintain a facade all at the expense of someone he claimed to love. It’s not JUST the innumerable ways he used his wife for his own selfish purposes for close to two decades rather than be a decent human being and tell her the truth. LIKE THIS WOULDN’T BE ENOUGH. But she had sex with him under the trust that they were both engaged in a monogamous relationship. He wasn’t. He lied. She was not able to give informed consent. He stripped her of her bodily autonomy. Repeatedly. FOR FIFTEEN YEARS.

Women’s autonomy over their bodies seems to be a real problem for Joss, given how he treated Charisma Carpenter for having the audacity to become pregnant.

But back to this new shit, there’s how, in his own words, he describes being a producer on Buffy. “I was surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women.” Joss was in charge. Joss was the boss of everyone involved in the production of this show. And he’s looking down from his position of power, likening himself to a hero or god in a Greek myth, at all the “needy” young women around him. And then he fucks them, which is all society’s fault, of course, certainly not Joss Whedon’s inability to not use women as literal props while he acts out his fantasies.

What part of any of this is NOT him being a hypocrite when he claims to be a feminist?
