I attack the stupid repeated claim that Joss isn't so much a feminist as he is a masochist who depicts strong women as sexual objects. It's really stupid, but even if it were true, it's a distraction. The sexuality of the creator should be kept separate from the work in analysis. Sexually-inspired writing can lead to feminist works, and works free from such inspiration can be sexist. The end result is what must be focused on. The same thing goes for that idea that he has a foot fetish in focusing on River's feet.
