How I Lost A Good Deal of Respect for Joss Whedons

I love Joss Whedon. He's the comic book geek equivalent of Peyton Manning. Very little he does or says can turn fans against him for all he's accomplished. But after seeing this, my respect for him just went down considerably. I'm still fully on board with Avengers 2. But now I question his ability to understand what makes somebody a hypocrite. And I don't care who you are or whether you directed the greatest comic book movie of all time. I can't respect hypocrites.

  1. Just curious, are you losing respect for Joss Whedon because the video paints him to be a misogynist, or are you losing respect for Joss Whedon because he supports Anita Sarkeesians and their suspect funding?

    1. You're painting a false dichotomy bub. Whedon claims he supports this woman and that she speaks the truth, even though by this woman's exact standards, he's exactly the kind of guy she condemns. That and this woman's way of getting funding is pretty suspicious. I don't like jumping to conclusions, but too much of what she says reeks of bullshit.

    2. I hope this means that Whedon takes what she says to heart. It's good to see people change. Remember when Jim Sterling was the kind of people who hates Anita Sarkeesian, but now he supports her and feminism in general?

  3. Just ignore these crazy misandrist Feminazis. No good can come from giving these crazy, far-from-reality women any attention. Especially if they're blatant liars and con-artists like Sarkeesian.
