Joss Whedon, Marvel and the SJW/militant feminist mob

First and for most, yes, I know that Joss Whedon claims that he didn´t have to leave Twitter (which Josh did on the 6th of May) because of militant feminists. In fact, this is what Joss Whedon had to say about the matter back in May:

“That is horseshit,” he told BuzzFeed News by phone on Tuesday. “Believe me, I have been attacked by militant feminists since I got on Twitter. That’s something I’m used to. Every breed of feminism is attacking every other breed, and every subsection of liberalism is always busy attacking another subsection of liberalism, because god forbid they should all band together and actually fight for the cause. “I saw a lot of people say, ‘Well, the social justice warriors destroyed one of their own!’ It’s like, Nope. That didn’t happen,” he continued. “I saw someone tweet it’s because Feminist Frequency pissed on Avengers 2, which for all I know they may have. But literally the second person to write me to ask if I was OK when I dropped out was [Feminist Frequency founder] Anita [Sarkeesian].”

“The real issue is me,” he said. “Twitter is an addictive little thing, and if it’s there, I gotta check it. When you keep doing something after it stops giving you pleasure, that’s kind of rock bottom for an addict. … I just had a little moment of clarity where I’m like, You know what? If I want to get stuff done, I need to not constantly hit this thing for a news item or a joke or some praise, and then be suddenly sad when there’s hate and then hate and then hate.”  – Joss Whedon, via BuzzFeed 

However, at first I thought that there was nothing more to it then that, but I was wrong. Please allow me to explain, since Avengers: Age of Ultron had its premier back in April Joss Whedon has been taking a lot of heat from militant feminists and SJWs. Why, because of his choice to portray the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as a stereotypical “damsel in distress” in Age of Ultron, and that was something that started a chain reaction on the Internet. Even the Youtube star Boogie2988 was quite shocked over what happened to Joss Whedon:

“IMHO, if Joss Whedon wasn’t enough of a feminist for you than your standards might very well be impossible for a man to achieve. By design.” Boogie2988 

joss whedon hate

I can´t blame Joss Whedon for leaving Twitter…

So what “kind” of chain reaction am I talking about here? I would say the rather hateful and mean kind (as seen in the picture above here). As Joss Whedon received a lot of threats, rants and evil comments via Twitter in May (Joss left Twitter on May 6th). What I’m trying to say is this, it´s no wonder why Joss Whedon decided to leave Twitter, since it was nothing more than a negative and hatful place for him to visit. This is not the first time that a famous creative person receives aggressive slurs such as this though, just take
George R.R. Martin and his Game of Thrones
for example, R.R. Martin received a lot heat for his Sansa Stark rape scene in GOT, and back in May The Mary Sue decided that they would no longer be promoting HBO´s Game of Thrones, due to the series nature and content (sex and violencem but mainly because of the Sansa Stark rape scene).

DC Comics Vs the SJW movement

What I’m trying to say is this, even though Joss Whedon claims that militant feminists and SJWs had nothing to do with his withdrawal from Twitter, I don´t think that´s the whole truth. As there’re plenty of past and present examples of people who have caved in to the demands and pressure of the SJW movement. Just take DC Comics and the “Killing Joke” front cover (as seen down below), the original cover was eventually exchanged for another cover due to intense rants from SJWs.

batman the killing joke cover

This is the original cover of “The killing Joke” (before it got changed).

Triggerd” and “Offended” are now key phrases that´s used to demand censorship in games, movies and comics, well, either that or huge changes to the original concept. This will of course cripple creativity and creative thinking, as you always have to worry about getting backlashes from SJWs and militant feminists, and this is something that has become worse as of lately.  Not only that, now there´s even gender politics to be found in Marvels comics.

Marvel Comics and gender politics

pregnant spider woman

It sure sounds like a brilliant idea to fight while pregnant (why risk two lifes?).

Yes, it´s true. Don´t believe me? Well, just check out the picture above here. Yep, that´s a pregnant Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) that you´re seeing. So it´s quite obvious that Marvel Comics is trying to flirt with the feminist and SJW movement for sure. I mean, why would you even try to fight while you´re pregnant? Because not only are you risking your own life by doing so, you’re also putting your unborn child´s life on the line as well (that´s rather stupid, don´t you think?). So it makes no sense really, unless it´s a defensive situation (you have no other choice), but if it´s done in an offensive matter (you seek up danger willingly on your own), then it´s nothing but pure stupidity.

So basically, Marvel Comics (in this case, writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Javier Rodriguez) has transformed Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman) from a sexy, strong and independent female protagonist into a pregnant SJW super-hero (will the comics also include gender studies perhaps?). This of course makes me wonder if all the other female Marvel super-heroes will undergo the very same SJW transformation as well?

Ubisoft´s failed attempt to flirt with the feminists in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

assassins creed syndicate female

It can´t be an easy task to satisfy feminists. You don´t have enough women in your game, you get rants. You add more women to your game. You get rants…

So what about video games then? There´s no difference there really, and there´s quite a lot of recent examples to back my statement up as well. I´m going to start with Ubisoft and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate first however. For those who don’t know it, Ubisoft received complains from feminists and SJWs about the lack of female characters in Assassin’s Creed Unity (this toke place in November last year). So what did Ubisoft do? They added more females to Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, well, that saved the day right? Wrong, The International Business Times (which would be the same site that ranted about Assassin’s Creed Unity´s lack of female protagonists) said that Ubisoft is “Exploiting Feminism For Easy PR.” in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. You see. It’s pretty much impossible to please the SJWs and the militant feminists, so why even bother? As a creator, you should only bother about your fans and audience. As it´s quite obvious who it is that consumes and appreciates your content, and who doesn´t.

Do you want more examples? Sure, just take the case with Tifa Lockhart and the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy ,or why not the indie game SJW riot? (a game which basically makes fun of the whole problem with SJWs and their thirst for power), and while I wrote this article a lot of questions popped up in my mind. Questions such as “Why doesn´t the SJWs or feminists bother all that much about male characters in movies, games and comics?” (most of them are buff to the max, look great and are half (and even full) nude at times), or “So beautiful female game characters is wrong, and ugly female game characters is right?”. Those’re some pretty good questions, but I highly doubt that I will find an answer to them anytime soon…

A painful reality check 

dr matt taylor

You guess it, Dr Matt Taylor´s shirt was found to be offending.

However, here´s the thing, reality is even worse when it comes to militant feminists and SJWs, just take the case when the SJWs bullied comet scientist Dr. Matt Taylor (Taylor landed the Philae probe on a comet in November last year) to tears, for wearing an “offensive” shirt, or when Sir Tim Hunt (a British Nobel Prize winner, and one of Britan´s top scientists) made a so called “sexist” joke, which eventually forced him to resign from his job (mainly because of feminist bullies). So what was the awful and “sexist” joke that Tim Hunt told then? That would be this joke:

“Three things happen when girls are in the lab – you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticise them, they cry.” – Sir Tim Hunt

So think about this for a moment. If a British Nobel Prize winner can be forced to resign from his job because of a joke, and a comet scientist can be bullied to tears because of a shirt, then imagine how little it will take for an average Joe to lose his job of the SJWs or militant feminists just happens to target him. Not only that, do you honestly believe that the SJWs and feminists will keep their hands away from other hobbies and pop cultures? Hell no! Because once they’re done with video games, movies, TV-series and comics, science and technology, they will move on to other things.

I bet that sports, music and books will be their next targets. So now that I think about it, SJW Riot: Troops vs Women might actually become a true story if we don´t put our foot down, and fast!

    Funny, I still remember when Joss Whedon started posting his support for Sarkeesian’s videos, he agreed with Sarkeesian about misogyny in video games and the critics she provided, not realizing that every single one of the examples of “misogyny” is also present in his own productions, beautiful self inflicted justice.

    • I´m not a fan of his, so I did not know about his “friendship” with Anita. I just heard that Anita gave him support after all the hate that he received. So now I get the part about “what goes around comes around”, “Karma”, “he deserved it” and so on.

  • Ole-Christian R

    Black Widow was NOT killed off in Age of Ultron. Don’t start an article with an obvious error and I might read the rest.

    • Correct, it was a ” stereotypical and “damsel in distress” kind of thing. So I correct the error.

  • Philip Weigel

    They go after “easy” targets first, so they can point to their history and go “see? WE were in the right then, we’re in the right now, do what we say or we’ll destroy you!”

  • I might just vote for Donald Trump just so that we can be rid of these fucking fascists.

    • You´re far from the only person that thinks like that. And I don´t blame you if you do.

      • Dusty Ayres

        You’re both idiots for wanting to vote for a neo-fascist in the hope that he will stop them.
        The best way is just to counter them without voting for a neo-fascist like Trump. Please don’t be that stupid.

        • Said the Toronto La cuck deluxe xD Neo-facist? Oh please, get real will ya? Besides, I´ll much rather have him as the US president than Hillary Clinton…

          • Dusty Ayres

            Nice, when you can’t come up with a good rejoinder, insult the person instead. Shows me what kind of intellect you’ve got.

          • “You’re both idiots”, not only are you a hypocrite, but you are obviously a very stupid one too. So you´re honestly telling my that Shillary Clinton or communist Bernie Sanders, are a better pick than Trump?

          • Dusty Ayres

            Sanders isn’t (he’s basically a clone of Jimmy Carter, with the same defects that would end up electing a Republican POTUS years down the line), but Clinton is good for the country, as Obama was.

            People like you aren’t doing Gamergate/I Am Not Your Shield any favors by supporting a fascist like Trump as POTUS, and you’re not doing your nation any favors, either. As I said, if you want to fight the SJW’s doing this to video games, you have to challenge them directly, not by electing Trump.

            Oh, and before you get the idea that Obama didn’t do anything significant as POTUS, here’s a list of his accomplishments. Read them, then get back to me on why Trump should be POTUS again.

          • Are you fu**ing serious? Let me be clear, the system is rigged. And it´s the global elite that pulls the strings. And I wish that there was an better alternative, but there isn´t. HAHA! Obama? Please, just stop. His a damn disaster:

          • Dusty Ayres

            It’s pretty clear that you are one of the emoprogressive Perpetually Poutraged Unicorn/Rainbow Purity Brigade, so I’ll leave you alone to your extreme left-wing purity bullshit.

            I know that this is probably going to flop with you, but here goes: Obama’s accomplishments

          • Whatever you say, I´m curious though. Will you continue to support Shillary when she´s behind bars? 😉

          • Dusty Ayres

            She’s won the party leadership challenge, sir; what are you going to do now? All she has left to fight is Trump later this year, and she might even make short work of him in the debates.

            And why is it that you as a Scandinavian want to see Trump be POTUS, anyway?

          • Ah, yes, you mean this? HAHA! You should do stand-up comedy mate, because you´re freaking hilarious. And you obviously don´t know a damn thing about the Clinton clan. So I´ll leave it at that. Because we´re fed up with PC culture, SJWs and all the crap that goes with it.

          • Dusty Ayres

            Going to repeat the same shit over and over again, sir? There is no evidence that she ‘cheated’ to be where she is now, other than you and the other neocon misogynists don’t like her and don’t want her to be president. Give it up, wake the frack up, and stop being a bunch of babies.

            Also-againwhat the frack does her becoming POTUS have to do with ‘PC culture, SJW’s and all the crap that goes with it’ ? Unless she’s also the head of most of the game studios or other media companies, I don’t see what her being POTUS means to popular culture that she has to be defeated to get Trump into power to make things better; as I said, the thing to do is to confront said SJW’s directly and tell them to leave you and everybody else alone. Electing a fascist isn’t going to fix that in any way possible.

          • Are you for real? Her whole damn so called carer is full of scandals, acts of cheating, crime and what not. Wait, let me see if I get this straight, you want another Clinton in the White House? Yes, that´s going to solve everything for sure…Because it worked like a charm the last time. Fascist? Everything´s racist and fascist and whatnot nowadays, so those words have lost all their meaning.

            And in the case with Shillary, she and her husband should be put in prison for life:

          • Dusty Ayres

            The so-called ‘scandals’ are bullshit, and haven’t brought down her electoral campaign any, so I don’t know what the frack you’re going on about. If anything, Trump might be the one who has to watch his back later this year and not her.

            Wanting another Clinton in the White House? No, what I want is a competent manager of a nation, and she’s it; Trump isn’t, he’s barely a competent manager of his businesses (countless bankruptcies to boot) and he may not even be all that wealthy, either. Sanders is a dunce who couldn’t get anything done other than to rename some post offices, and who got sideswiped/outclassed by Barack Obama when he was a senator. Neither man is right for the office of president, she just might be.

          • Whatever man, I´m done with you and your bs. HAHA! Don´t hold your breath 😉

          • I just went into an adventure. 😀

          • She should be in jail for life…

          • Dusty Ayres

            The rich asshole that you supported the other poster in voting with the implication that he would get rid of Sarkesian and others like her just like that is a fascist and a racist, you dumb-ass. Fight the ‘SJW’s’ on their own level, or cede to them, it’s entirely up to you and the others here complaining about their destruction of the video game industry and most culture.

  • Petter

    SJW ruins EVERYTHING. I was SO happy about Game of Thrones deviating from the usual SJW formula, actually presenting a credible universe that I could immerse myself in … for the first time in many, many years. But SJW got the best of it, and now it’s nothing but feminist propaganda.

    Almost every franchise out there has fallen to this monstrosity. Star Wars, Game of Thrones. Ghostbusters, MacGyver, Marvel stuff, Mortal Kombat and so on. The developers/writers are obviously spineless cowards that choose to cater to a toxic religion rather than being the best creators they could be.

    • Well, that´s what they live and die for…Just look at Magic the gathering. The SJW movement is the cancer of this world (and so is feminism, for most part). Correct, they tend to cave in sooner or later (as we speak, the SJWs are attacking the Metal scene yet again!).

  • Interesting reading this two years later and seeing how DC more or less came to their senses (not fully yet, though) while Marvel continued to rot.

    • I know right? Well, you got the White Knight comic…As for me, I just read TWD and the Aliens comics atm (I’m still stuck at the early 90s so far).
