He deceived me for 15 years, so he could have everything he wanted. I believed, everyone believed, that he was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women’s rights, committed to our marriage, and to the women he worked with. But I now see how he used his relationship with me as a shield, both during and after our marriage, so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist.
You know, had this been published a decade, or even half a decade, ago, I might have brushed it off as vindictive. But over the years, looking at Joss Whedon's body of work, both in detail and in aggregate, it's become abundantly clear that he's not a feminist. This is just another nail in the coffin.
