Social Justice Warriors

Ace knocks another one out of the park. This time concerning Joss Whedon (pbuh). It rings all true.

Sort of a variant of the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect — you know reporters are useless when you read an article making an embarrassing hash of everything in your field of expertise, but then you turn the page to read them writing about other fields, and you assume, “These guys probably know what they’re talking about here.”

And so Joss Whedon, who so gleefully embraces Social Justice Warrior attacks on others, has now himself, perhaps, been purged by the Social Justice Warriors.

And it will make no difference.

I’ll admit it took me years and years to finally accept that the “news” is mostly false. I have save myself hours of time by no longer reading/watching the news except the local rag and whatever catches my eye on Drudge.
Between those and whatever blogs continue to keep me interested I still pass all the citizenship tests or the ‘are you up on the news’ tests that are out there.

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but based on this review from the WAPO, I suspect the increase in womanliness of Black Widow is probably a good thing.
