So. Joss Whedon.
Joss Whedon is honoured for his strong female characters. But are they atually strong, or are they, as someone I know put it, “Barbie dolls that punch people”?
There isn’t one simple answer to this, I think. He has written many wildly different characters (which, let’s be brutally honest, is an accomplishment in itself). And while I love most of Whedon’s shows, I acknowledge that there are some issues there. So! There is clearly only one thing to do. I’m going to watch Whedon shows, and I’m going to blog about his female characters. Fun and thought-provoking! I am excited.
