“Feminist Ally” Joss Whedon Gets Dragged by SJWs Over Batgirl Gig

Joss Whedon

You can never please these people, so why even try? Even a longtime “feminist ally” like Joss Whedon will get trashed when it suits SJW purposes.

Assuming he doesn’t back out of the Batgirl gig due to these bully tactics, maybe Whedon will at least gain some newfound sanity in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory.

I hope you guys enjoy the video, even thought it is a little scattershot. I’ll be back in a few with another article or two. I’m having a great time with my new bride, but as I said yesterday, I still have to do a little work here and there. Hit me up in the comments if there’s a story you really want me to checkout, as I’ve been a bit unplugged this week.

This Mary Sue excerpt says it all, really…

Seriously, though, what does a female writer/director have to do to GET A JOB AROUND HERE?! I know, I know. It’s Joss Whedon. Whatever. Put your feminism where your mouth is, dude. Be an executive producer on this and help find an amazing woman to write and direct. Use your clout for good. Not that female directors should only direct projects with female protagonists, of course, but it should be a given at this point that female directors should be considered first when it comes to films about women and girls. The fact that this is so NOT a given is heartbreaking and infuriating…

Speaking of feminism: I know that Joss Whedon tries very hard to be a feminist ally. I also know that many of his attempts, while successful in some areas, are riddled with sexist missteps in others. First, there’s the feminism of his actual projects, then there’s the feminism he espouses in his day-to-day life, which he sometimes has a hard time learning from if a misstep is brought to his attention. He really, really, really needs to get some female producers on board here. Women who will call him on his shit and to whom he will listen. (PS – I’m totally available, Joss.) If he (and Warner Bros.) are going to insist that this particular cis-het white dude is going to write and direct Batgirl, they should at the very least place voices around him that will ensure a certain level of integrity and quality with regard to the film’s gender representation.

        Feminazi site.

      • Paul Chach Mcarthy

        The Bri Wu?

    • GodBowser

      What do you expect they have Nut Job Wu writing for them

    • Grust

      More evidence that feminism and social justice is slowly dying. It’ll be a while but it’s going to happen.

      • Lost Question

        it needs to die faster it’s still doing too much damage to society

        • Grust

          Agreed!

  • Lost Question

    so place your bets is joss like a beaten spouse with stockholmes and will keep coming back for more abuse until he dies (either by natural causes, or his own hand), will joss eventually snaps and turns against feminism?, or will joss eventually break and just (be) retire(‘ed) disappearing off into the mists?

    come now ladies and gentlemen take a guess at josses eventual future.

  • Grust

    Joss Whedon is proof of why you shouldn’t waste your time trying to please feminazies and SJWS.

    • Exactly!

    • TheOnceAndFutureKing

      Milo said it best when he called him the battered housewife of feminism

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      So is GRRM (game of thrones writer)

  • Mr0303

    Good. He deserves all the backlash. Feminist “allies” are the worst.

    • Mike Townsend

      Indeed.

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      This always happens.

  • One-Eye

    A filmmaker I’m a fan of said he backed out of a female-lead project that had an amazing script and a killer role for an actress because he knew that no matter what he did and the creative choices he made he was bound to be torn apart by feminists. And, quite frankly, he just didn’t want to gave to go through that shit.

    He directly cited what happened with AGE OF DULLTRON and Whedon being sent packing from Twitter under a hail of feminazi bullets. Whedon is super-wealthy and has a long, successful track record behind him. An indie film-maker who still struggles to pay his bills may not weather such a storm.

    So these cunts are only going to end up hurting their chances at get more substantial female-lead movies. Especially if their idea of ‘progress’ is a dumpster fire like GHOSTBUSTERS 2016.

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      Cunt busters 2016 was the flop of the decade lol. Proof once and for all not even the sjws themselves support these terrible feminist films.

  • One-Eye

    The thing that pissed me off the most about when Whedon was driven off Twitter was that, naturally, the media’s angle on it was “Disgruntled Marvel comic book fans attack AVENGERS filmmaker…”

    WRONG!! It was entirely his lovingly-cultivated cabal of doughy feminist acolytes who are incapable of a unique thought or opinion.

  • ash

    Serves him right. Joss is the ultimate CUCKboi and I’m sure he will take it like a champ. lol

  • Typical

    Holy crap. the mary sue is completely unhinged aren’t they?

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      Feminists are unhinged. The thing is, what we call feminism today, was actually classed as a mental illness in the 1800s. It was called “feminist hysteria” and was treated. Now we let these mentally ill harlots run riot instead of getting them treatment due to pc.

  • Mike Townsend

    Fucking LOL. Whedon helped create this monster with crap like Buffy and Firefly, its wonderful watching it destroy him.

    • Paul Chach Mcarthy

      Damn man, Buffy and Xena were great shows, sure, they did pave the way for feminist bs but back in the 90s, we didn’t need sjw propaganda to enjoy strong female leads. I since re-watched both shows, at the older age of 34 but still can’t see any overt feminist bs in them. You are still right though. Whedon was the early sjw panderer.

  • Kellen Joel

    Let them eat their own, it just does our job for us.

  • Paul Chach Mcarthy

    Same thing happened to George RR Martin. The sjw’s loved the show Game of Thrones whilst it was men getting the thin end of the wedge, soon as Sanza got raped off camera by her husband, the sjw crowd all turned on GRRM and started attacking his twitter. And that was after he proclaimed himself on their team.

  • Arf x 3

    Serves him right. He made himself an easy target because SJWs feed on and exploit weakness. Joss Whedon exudes weakness. A femtard may hate a guy who tells her to fuck off, but she will have a certain level of respect for him (perhaps even more because biology), OTOH she will utterly despise a spineless cuck like Whedon and will have zero respect for him.
