While I wait for The Cabin in the Woods to arrive from Netflix (it’s been on my list for years, but Kim’s mention of it and this project have bumped it up to position 1), I’ve decided to watch Season 1 of that other Joss Whedon/Drew Goddard project, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, while I work out on my elliptical. I watch the series through every few years. I love it for its writing, humor, natural feminism. In Whedon’s worlds, the sexes are so equal that accepting this as normal is like breathing. Letting your brain live in this normalcy is quietly empowering. And when the day really does need to be saved, you know it’s gonna be a girl kicking the requisite ass.
