Josh Whedon, the writer of Roseanne, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Toy Story, was asked this question during an interview. Contemporary or "modern sexism" suggests that we have been wired to expect to see certain people in certain positions. A question like this reinforces the societal belief that men are expected to be seen in several positions, while women are dismissed.

People feel removed from sexism, "I'm not a sexist, but I'm not a feminist." They think there's this fuzzy middle ground. There's no fuzzy middle ground. You either believe that women are people or you don't. It's that simple. - Joss Whedon at Equality Now #feminism #equality
You either believe that women are people or you don't. Either you're a sexist or a feminist. There is no middle ground
That's nice, but Joss Whedon is a fucking tool and all the people crazy about his 'feminism' really need to research him.
Being a feminist means you accept a woman is a human being and as such they deserve human rights and deserve to be represented in society and in art as such. If you don't accept and believe this you are sexist. Joss is saying that there is no middle ground and we all must pick between sexist and feminism. This is not a false equivalence. This is a reasoned and accurate argument.
Joss Whedon -- Just one more reason to follow this man to the ends of the earth and beyond!
Every time I see a quote by this man, I fall more in love. Thank you, Joss Whedon
You either believe that women are people or you don't - classic Joss Whedon quote
Joss Whedon - made buffy, speaking the truth
I couldn't agree more with Rebecca West. None of us are just "doormats" who can be walked over because it's what society says or the norm. Be more than just what society wants women to be..be the light that shines for all those women who come knocking at the door of feminism.

I have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat. - Rebecca West, 1913

Joseph "Joss" Whedon quote: when asked, why do you write strong female characters?, Joss replied, "Because you're still asking me that question."
It's ridiculous that this is still an issue! Joss Whedon quote

Steven Moffat is a bag of contradictions. Why does he never keep a strong female lead then? Why do they always meet either violent or tragic ends? Can they not DECIDE on their own that they no longer wish to travel with the Doctor? Words are great, but it's action that talks.
I had to put this on my quotes board because of its awesomeness. It's not about a fandom, it's about women.
I find it's bizarre that science-fiction is the one branch of television to push the idea of strong female characters. And I only call it bizarre, because strong women aren't fiction. - Steven Moffat #lovethis ***************************************************

Steven Moffat on sci-fi and strong female characters. Okay.. this makes up for him tearing out my heart multiple times. Doctor Who problems.
A great #feminist quote from Steven Moffat on why #scifi isn't the only place #strongwomen belong.
Pop culture teaches girls they can be ordinary, geek culture teaches girls they can be bamf.

From a commenter: Makes me think of the second verse of "Bread and Roses" - As we go marching, marching, we battle too for men, For they are women's children, and we mother them again. Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes; Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Truth. Everyone gets feminism wrong. Feminism is about creating equality and respect regardless of gender/sexual identity. It's not about being anti-ANYONE.
"You don't have to be anti-man to be pro-woman." - Jane Galvin Lewis. This should be obvious but the "scary, man-hating feminist" stereotype won't die.
Feminists aren't just angry women man hating it up in there anti man caves.

Ahhhh my love, this is so true!! You have helped me in more ways than I can say to help me look inwardly and outwardly to change and transform so much of myself to become a better man for YOU!!! Thank you my dear sweetheart!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!
So true. I didn't ask him to change who he is...and still love him as he is. HE decided that he needed to make some changes. He decided that the life he had been living wasn't working any more. He loves me and that's all. I have no restraints on him. He does what he wants to...and chooses to be with me. No MIA, no drama...it is wonderful to be married to him.
And vice versa I might add! Love grows and is sustained by selflessness! A Woman can't Change a man... love quote lovequote woman man change
He changes because he loves her ... Amen . A real man changes and loves his wife without end. A selfish child runs away. So blessed that I have now found a real man. I love this quote so much!
Love this quote. Very true. I've seen it in men I never thought could change.

[PREORDER] 'Feminism is the Radical Notion' Charity Tank Top Quote by Cheris Kramarae - Juliette Said
This T shirt is defining what feminism is because there is a lot of discussion that discredits feminism entirely, or describes it as something that it isn't. This puts feminism in simple terms that someone might be able to grasp better than what they might hear from the media. Even so, some feminists would disagree with this definition of feminism, and would say that it is much more.
The irony that the style of shirt is wife beater. Still want it! [PREORDER] 'Feminism is the Radical Notion' Charity Tank Top
Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. Let's talk about that dirty F-word that people like to avoid: "feminism". But why? There's nothing wrong with being a feminist! Feminism is founded on a belief of equality, it's as easy as that. Why run from it? Show off your feminist pride! Shirts are unisex, women may want to order a size down.

I thought this was gonna be some philosopher or something...nope, Joss Whedon. Made it twenty million times better
Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does, so what are we? Helpless? Puppets? No, the big moments are gonna come. You can't help that, it's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.
What did i do/doing...run away, cower, embrace, become happier, sadder, full of courage or fear, more closer to the Lord or farther away, think of & yearn for her more, say dismissives when secretly wanting to much, being to serious to soon & not patient, acknowledging her amazing strengths yet your self control & desires & reckless abandon, yet chaste for most special lass who is likewise ardent & witholden but w/ beautiful unique passion...
Wow... Joss Whedon is pretty much the perfect spiritual guru for life quotes.

Simon Pegg's definition of a Geek makes BEING a Geek EVEN BETTER:) maryanne #Geek #SimonPegg #techie #tech #nerd #computer #quote
I spent so much time in high school trying to be normal/mainstream, playing it cool about how much I LOVED things. And when I stopped, it was indeed extremely liberating.
being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. it means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. it's basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. being a geek is extremely liberating. - simon pegg #nerd #geek
Simon Pegg breaks it down about what being a geek is all about. I'm happy to not have to be cool about stuff. Proud Geek!
