The next time I bitch about Firefly
james_nicoll
Remember that my views about the show are not the most negative ones out there.

I feel awful for Joss Whedon's wife. From what I've read about him and the interviews I've watched, I'm fairly certain that he rapes his wife and abuses her in various other ways. I honestly can't think of anything worse than living with a man like Joss who thinks of women like the way he portrays in his tv shows. How awful. The comment about the money was meant to be about how I personally could see no benefit from being with a man like Joss OTHER than money. Joss uses and abuses her. Probably rapes her and thinks of women as whores etc, etc. Obviously, Ms Whedon has her own reasons for staying. Fear, patriarchal concepts of love, etc. But I would argue that she gives everything and gets nothing. Money is the only concrete thing that she could possibly gain. But as I said money is worth nothing compared with self-integrity, self-esteem, love (sister/lesbian/gynaffectionate love) etc. So she still loses out. Poor woman.

I think I will go with coalescent (from whom I nicked this and just react with a ...

[And now I think I should make it clear that while I think Firefly was awful, the writer above is completely barking and the assertations she makes appear to be produced ex ano]

No, she's an entire Amazon River Basin cattle ranch, Idaho potato farm, artesian Coca-Cola well, and American Cyanamid cocktail of lethal additives short of a happy meal.

Does she at least have a little action figure?

No action figures. All dolls are patriarchal stereotypes designed to lock children into rigid gender roles. Most dolls are also racist or colonialist. (This is, alas, 80% true.)

Penetration is a phallocentric metaphor for the violation of the integrity of Mother Earth by implanting heavily encultured objects into her sacred ground. Missile silos, skyscrapers, Stonehenge, and cathedrals are all phallocentric objects designed to destroy the natural feminine worldview. So are palm trees.

I thought Stonehenge was a metaphor for the human vulva? I mean, it stands to reason that the Druids would be the ones to build a great whopping rock cooch, yeh?

*ROTFL*

They WOULD!! Not that they did, the henges are actually older than the druids, but if they didn't already exist, they'd have invented them.

See this slab? This is the rocklitoris, also known as the altar.
