But before fans start blogging frantically, they should know that Mr. Whedon is clear where this is headed. “We’re not going to make her gay, nor are we going to take the next 50 issues explaining that she’s not.”

Yeah, that would be tawdry and exploitative.

Huh.

Well, I don't read the comic Buffys, but I thought the Willow/Tara romance was exceptionally well-handled (not a Very Special Episode in the bunch!), so if there's anyone I trust to do this well, it's Joss.

Yes, they handled it beautifully, right up until they killed Tara. What? Lesbian romances always end with death so that's kind of a horrible cliche? No, Joss never heard about that, he just likes to kill people.

*quietly retching*
“People who love me tend to ... oh, die,” [Buffy] said. Or, she added, they leave, because “sooner or later everybody realizes there’s something wrong ... something wrong with me, or around me.”

And people think Whedon's dialog is good?

He is sort of the Yakov Smirnoff of sci-fi.
Whedon strikes me as a guy who is pleased with himself every time he reverses a familiar phrase.

"Lead me to your taker."
"Close strike ... before covering!"
"All you love is need."

All scibbled in a moleskine notebook ...

I always got that same feeling from Buffy as from Jaime Hernandez's contributions to Love and Rockets - another guy who had stumbled onto a way of packaging his kinky fantasies (and most males I know) as female empowerment.
caprinus

That I agree with. Whedon is def. writing for his gonads, which is why there's been no casual MALE gay sex in any of his work.

I love it when the comic companies rush to get these stories out everywhere before the people who normally read the comics even have time do so.

And yet they don't rush far enough in advance to allow for higher print runs and retail orders ...

Man, I looked at this entry this morning before going to work (where LJ breaks the computers), and had this insightful post about how of course Buffy has sex with a hot, kick-ass Japanese (or Japanese-American) girl, which is totally what every male Buffy reader dreams about every night.

Then I get home and see that all my salient points have been covered in this monstrous thread. Thank you for ruining my life, Leonard. I'll just go masturbate to my Buffy porn.
