Joss Whedon vs. the Lesbians

leave a comment »

A long time ago, Joss Whedon won the heart of nerdy lesbians everywhere when Willow realized she was a lesbian in season four of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

A few years later, things got pretty rocky for Joss and the lesbians, for reasons that should probably be left unspoiled.

Once, Joss tried to make it up to the lesbians, but things didn’t pan out.

Tomorrow, he tries again.

Weird Science

Friday Sex Science Minute: Strippers and exotic dancers make more money while ovulating and while off-the-pill. Via Kottke.

Psychologist Geoffrey Miller and colleagues tapped the talent at local gentlemen’s clubs and counted tips made on lap dances. Dancers made about $70 an hour during their peak period of fertility, versus about $35 while menstruating and $50 in between.

Miller links the wage fluctuations to changes in body odor, waist-to-hip ratio, and facial features. Despite operating at the upper limits of flirtatiousness already, he says there may also be subtle shifts in their behavior—”how they talk and move when enticing a customer to buy a dance, and how they perform the dance itself.”

1st gay male hero to come out in the Marvel Comics Universe, thus making him their most prominent gay hero. Between February 16 and March 9, 2005, Northstar is killed in three different realities, during the most prominent of which, the X-Men’s most popular hero, Wolverine (star of the X-Men movies), impales him through the chest with his metal claws. Marvel’s most prominent gay hero is later resurrected as a murderous zombie assassin.

FREEDOM RING
Hailed by Marvel Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada as the new example of Marvel’s open policy toward gays in their books as “the star of Marvel Team-Up.” Quesada went on to say, “We’ve had more gay and lesbian characters appearing in Marvel comics than ever before.” Marvel Team-Up #24, three weeks after Quesada’s comments, features Freedom Ring, his finger sliced off and then graphically killed with 28 spikes impaling him, including one through the groin and protruding from his anus. Series cancelled with issue #25.

ICE
Lesbian member of DC’s superheroes Justice League International. Murdered. Last seen by her teammates in Hell.

There’s many, many more.
