A Television Producer and Feminism?
One of my favorite TV/Movie creators is Joss Whedon (Buffy-The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Serenity, writer of Toy Story). His creations are fun, smart, at times heart-rendering (see the second season of Buffy), and contain deeper ideas that are real, not just thrown in for the sake of being "deep". And Mr. Whedon, while in college, minored (I believe) in Women's Studies; thus, his strong female characters (as well as one of my only and favorite "pro-feminist" male characters: Oz on Buffy). Joss Whedon's creations also bring out a lot of smart people writing about the his work - and the ideas contained within. There are annual symposiums and conferences at colleges chewing on his creations. Which leads me to the excellent post below at Capitalism Bad; Tree Pretty:
