Ok, friends, have a seat. I wanna school you on a thing.
Do you recognize this kickass lady, here? It’s ok if you don’t. That’s why we’re having this talk. This adorbs vision is none other than the freaking fabulous Maurissa Tancharoen, writer, producer, and fucking showrunner for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Y’all like Agents of SHIELD, right? Like all that snappy dialogue? Those great characters? Mo Tancharoen is who you should be thanking. Yeah, I know we’ve got the Whedon name slapped all over everything, and yeah that ups the numbers. But, y’all, Joss fucked off to go work on Avengers 2. This bonafide badass is who he left flying the quinjet.
Oh, did you see Doctor Horrible’s Sing-along Blog? Yeah, a lot of that was her, too. And Much Ado About Nothing? That eerie, gorgeous soundtrack? Also her. Were you one of those folks, like me, who thought Dollhouse was genius and really could have been something amazing? Guess who ran the show on that one. 
That’s right. 
Oh yeah, and she worked on the Avengers script, too. Also those Spartacus series on STARZ that apparently a lot of people liked. 
Basically, Mo Tancharoen is a goddess of geek media, and, y’know, Asian-American with Thai roots. So she is an extra hardcore WoC getting shit done.
So when you talk about AoS - the good and the bad, the writing, the story arcs, and all the other shit we flail about - there is no fucking reason to bring Joss into it unless you’re talking about how this glorious queen’s contributions are erased and overshadowed by this white dude.
Maurissa Tancharoen, friends. Now you know.

The more I learn about Whedon the more I’m sure that everything of his that I’ve actually liked was really made by a woman and he took all the credit for it.

“$20 bill’s maple leaf isn’t Canadian, botanists say”
Now, botanists say one of the maple leaves on the note shows a Norway maple, which is not native to Canada.
“It’s rather sad. It’s not the first time that it’s happened,” said Julian Starr, a botany professor at the University of Ottawa who specializes in plant identification and classification. “It’s almost Canadian in the fact that we can’t even get our symbols right.”

Oh, come on, Canada. You’re better than that. Why even stylize it? The maple leaf on the flag is just classic. 

GOOD JOB CANADA

"Leslie Howard was a darling flirt. He’d be caressing your eyes and have his hand on someone else’s leg at the same time. He was adorable. He was a little devil and just wanted his hands on every woman around. He just loved ladies."

A few years ago, someone from the Feminist Majority Foundation called the Muslim Women’s League to ask if she could “borrow a burka” for a photo shoot the organization was doing to draw attention to the plight of women in Afghanistan under the Taliban. When we told her that we didn’t have one, and that none of our Afghan friends did either, she expressed surprise, as if she’d assumed that all Muslim women keep burkas in their closets in case a militant Islamist comes to dinner. She didn’t seem to understand that her assumption was the equivalent of assuming that every Latino has a Mexican sombrero in their closet.

We don’t mean to make light of the suffering of our sisters in Afghanistan, but the burka was—and is—not their major focus of concern. Their priorities are more basic, like feeding their children, becoming literate and living free from violence. Nevertheless, recent articles in the Western media suggest the burka means everything to Muslim women, because they routinely express bewilderment at the fact that all Afghan women didn’t cast off their burkas when the Taliban was defeated. The Western press’ obsession with the dress of Muslim women is not surprising, however, since the press tends to view Muslims, in general, simplistically. Headlines in the mainstream media have reduced Muslim female identity to an article of clothing—“the veil.” One is hard-pressed to find an article, book or film about women in Islam that doesn’t have “veil” in the title: “Behind the Veil,” “Beyond the Veil,” “At the Drop of a Veil” and more. The use of the term borders on the absurd: Perhaps next will come “What Color is Your Veil?” or “Rebel Without a Veil” or “Whose Veil is it, Anyway?
