The angry sisterhood takes a swipe at Firefly

Unbelievable. Via NRO.

VIPS: This angry sistah apparently never saw River Tam The Weapon on YouTube .

So glad to not be a "feminist" or a "sister" to this woman or women like her. It seems once you are, you can no longer just enjoy a movie or a show, but rather must watch through angry eyes for any possibility of transgression - however much warping you have to do to find the offense, it must be there.

Has to be an exhausting way to watch a movie.

The author needs to relax, have a beer and chill out...or something.

Oh, for the love of...

The fourth sentence in is the doozy:

I have become increasingly interested in examining Joss Whedon’s work from a feminist[1] perspective since I had a conversation with another lesbian feminist[2] sister at the International Feminist[3] Summit about whether Joss was a feminist[4].

We get it. You're a fgeminist, this is about feminism. It really does reveal how this woman's brand of "feminism" really should be "Feminism", since it's not just her philosophy of gender equality, it's an all-consuming religion through which she devoutly filters her entire reality.

And the humorless harping tone of the whole thing reminds me of the joke:

Q: How many Feminists does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: That's not funny!
