If some of you are as moved as you say you are by Wheedons comments, you really should voice your opinion more when you see the sexism that goes on around here from time to time.

maybe we need a different thread to discuss Joss Whedon in general compared to this really really old essay, 'cause the comments are getting all muddled together.

Why should it matter to anyone that the essay is old? Does it change the content of the essay and the meaning of what he had to say?

it's not 'cause it's old that it's confusing.

it's because someone bumped it with a new story and most of the people who have responded since then are commenting on that, not the OP.

Ah, I see what you mean. There should have been a new thread started in the Entertainment forum for that.

Yeah my fault..sorry about that. I was thinking that after I had already added it on to the old thread but wasn't sure how to delete it.
