Whedon in the news agains for all the wrong reasons:

https://www.wired.com/story/disappointment-of-fandom/

The Crushing Disappointment of Fandom
Gina Carano, Joss Whedon—this week has been full of dispiriting news about people many fans admire.

"A long time ago, in a WIRED office far, far away, a colleague once said, “There are a million and one ways to be a geek.” In a newsroom full of people with obsessions—science, movies, gadgets, math, etc.—the meaning was clear. Everyone’s a fan of something. Part of that fandom is attachment. When we really, truly admire someone, whether they’re an Avenger or Anthony Fauci, there’s a tendency to mimic their personality, even their morality. Media theorists call these bonds “parasocial relationships”; parents of kids with one too many Star Wars posters (probably) call it “over the top.” But the people in it, the ones who write fic and spend days making cosplay before the next convention, call it part of their identity, the fabric of who they are.

Until it’s not. Earlier this week, actress Gina Carano lost her job playing Cara Dune on The Mandalorian. The former MMA fighter had been facing criticism for months for her anti-science views on mask-wearing, mocking transgender-sensitive pronouns, and tweets about voter fraud. Then, on Wednesday, after she shared an Instagram story that suggested having differing political views was akin to being Jewish during the Holocaust, the hashtag #FireGinaCarano began to trend on Twitter. That night, Lucasfilm issued the following statement: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Carano’s comments are harmful for a lot of reasons, but they seem to carry an additional weight for fans. Cara Dune was a hero, someone who fought for people, a tough, competent female hero in a genre often dominated by men. Fans looked up to Cara, and by extension Carano, but the actor’s comments on social media left one of those things harder to do. “The pain was felt acutely by those who admired her character the most,” Anthony Breznican wrote for Vanity Fair, “including some who cosplayed as Cara Dune and hoped the spirit of the hero matched the feelings of the person performing her.” Others, meanwhile, backed Carano’s statements and started a competing hashtag, #CancelDisneyPlus, as this week’s news began to spread.

Conflicts over these feelings live in the hearts of fans everywhere. If having a relationship, even a one-sided one, with a character, an actor, a director, or a writer means adopting part of their moral code, or seeing part of your own morals in their work, then what happens when those things no longer align? What happens when a hero is no longer your hero?

You may think I’m on a fast track to a screed about cancel culture. That’s understandable. But that’s not the point exactly. Canceling someone or something used to be a strong reaction to something that person or organization said or did. When they made a racist statement or supported a transphobic cause, it became hard for fans to enjoy their work, so they stopped doing so, as if their show was taken off the air. Then, over the course of 2020, it got misinterpreted as an attempt to silence people. Even as people spoke on national television wearing masks that read “Censored,” people failed to grasp that canceling someone doesn’t mean they can’t speak, it just means everyone has the right to choose whether or not they want to listen, buy their records, or watch their movie.

To put this idea in context, here’s another example from this week: On Wednesday, Charisma Carpenter, the actress who played Cordelia Chase on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, accused the creator of those shows, Joss Whedon, of creating “hostile and toxic work environments” on his sets. Her comments, which were themselves made in support of Ray Fisher, who accused Whedon of “abusive, unprofessional” behavior on the set of the Justice League reshoots, were quickly backed up by fellow Buffy costars like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Michelle Trachtenberg.

For the years that Buffy and Angel were on the air, they were seen as feminist shows, and Whedon as an ally. In light of this week’s allegations, however, some may find it hard to watch those shows—not necessarily because of some vendetta against Whedon, but because it’s now impossible to un-know that Carpenter and her colleagues were being mistreated while making them. Basic empathy makes it difficult to enjoy something that may have traumatized someone else, to celebrate fictional heroes whose creators acted like villains.

Fans, especially those who read comics, see Marvel films, or enjoy content under the big umbrella known as “genre,” talk a lot about heroes. Sometimes those lionhearts are fictional characters, sometimes they’re the people who create them. They serve as guides, or even stand-ins for absent role models. When they falter at living up to the ideals they, or their fans, represent, the let-down is enormous. But ultimately they are just icons, avatars; sometimes their devotees have to do the work they themselves do not.

To be clear, the actual harm that can come from hateful comments and unhealthy work environments far outweighs fan disappointment. This is not a post to say, “Won’t someone think of the faaaaans?” Yet those things are not disconnected. It matters who is chosen for admiration. And when those idols vary from their followers’ moral code, it matters even more whether those fans call them out or follow their lead. The disappointment comes from the awareness that support for someone’s work is also in some ways complicity in their actions. No hero would sit back and stay silent."

It took less than two weeks of me leaving RWED for sundowning Kiki to figure out you are a narcissist, and you still think it's NOT YOU.

It's YOU, honey.

It's because you've invalidated the entire meaning of the word and insulted the legacy of Jews who died in WWII, the survivors, and the families that lost their own.

I told you years ago that you and Marcos were doing that, and to this day you've never stopped.


What? Do you think that you can just win every argument by calling somebody you don't agree with a Nazi? Sorry Princess, life doesn't work that way. We just laugh at you now when you use the word.

You're a fucking joke, and your opinion holds no currency.

Gina correctly states that others are lying about her to keep themselves from being cancelled for her telling the truth.

And she's spot on.

Not 'survivors', she's talking about the lead up to BEFORE the holocaust. She's correctly talking about the time which preceded that dark time, that ended up giving us nazis.

I loved Gina's (alleged) non-apology. I can't find it, so I'm only paraphrasing what was probably already paraphrased, but it went something like:

"I wouldn't have posted that if I knew you were going to be such Nazis about it".





These Twitter Outrage Lefties are so stupid they can't even imagine how hypocritical they behave. It's ingrained in their half-brains and just part of their programming.

There should be zero way that somebody could read Gina's statement and come to the conclusion that the Nilbot has about it, but here we are.

Go ahead and find quotes where I hate groups of people.

The closest you'll find is people who follow the diseased Muslim religion with hate in their hearts. Not racisim... just against the Ideology. Or illegal aliens who cross our borders illegally for free shit. Not racisim... not directed toward LEGAL immigrants or any race in particular.

Hell... my entire step family is Mexican. My step-dad's parents came here legally, and spent his formative years living in a train box car with 12 other people picking cotton while his father was a leatherworker. He listened to Rush Limbaugh and other talk radio all day long with my mom at their shop until I talked them out of it.



No. I don't hate groups of people.

Not a huge fan of countless individuals though. Especially not a huge fan of "movements" either. Particularly RACIST and SEXIST movements who's only purpose is to make people with my skin color and sex organs out to be bad people simply because of their skin color and sex organs.


Stop being such a fucking terrible, hateful hypocrite, Nilbot.

Where's your brain?

"According to the GAO report, almost half the (in 15 years) 85 attacks were committed by white supremacists.

Wish - I'm no medical professional, but I'm old enough and well learned enough to see that you're clearly an unhinged individual. The vile and mindless hatred you spew on these message boards towards total strangers, with zero cause, is a clear sign of a disturbed mind.

You've mentioned your health issues before, and I'm not even going to bother rehashing all that history. Needless to say, it's warped your perception and ability to think rationally. To see you amp up such hyperbolic vitriol over purely imagined slights and offenses , I must say, is disheartening.

The childish name calling, the projection of hate and animus you feel as some sort of traits belonging to others... you're not right in the head, and it shows.

"According to the GAO report...


85 attacks? Sweetie, that's a slow weekend for the # of shootings in Chicago in mid summer. Statistics and " official " reports are meaningless , especially when dealing with real world issues by a corrupt , biased and agenda driven government agency.



This thread is about Gina Carano, an actress who did absolutely nothing wrong, but refused to bend the knee. Free thinking scares the likes of K.K, and obviously, you as well.

Taking the focus off the Nilbot's mental disorders and back to the original topic...



Up until the other day, I had thought I'd never seen Gina in anything. I never caught more than a few glimpses of MMA, and I don't watch too many new movies or TV shows. But she was in Deadpool though, huh? Neat.


I've got no stake in this whatsoever, from an entertainment perspective. I will never watch a Disney Star Wars vehicle in any format. I will never buy Disney+. Those statements were both just as true while Cara Dune was still a thing and I was blissfully ignorant to the fact that Cara Dune was a thing.


I wouldn't even know who Gina Carano was unless she was cancelled.

This, to me, indicates that the Left's campaign of cancel culture is backfiring now. The only time I'd ever seen her before was a small role as Discount Chyna in one of the small handful of superhero movies I've seen over the decades. Not only wasn't she on my radar at all, but I didn't even know her name.


And cancelling Gina isn't enough for the pink haired weirdos on Twitter. Now they're going after Superman too. It seems that Henry Cavill once dated Gina Carano almost 10 years ago and he's got to go now too. The fact that they haven't dated since before Obama was elected for a 2nd term doesn't matter. No sir. #CancelHenryCavill


When can we all go back to just ignoring these people like we always used to do? They serve no real purpose in society, and the projections they make stemming from their own self-hatred does nothing but hurt other people when anybody gives any of their warped opinions even a single moment of their time.

Yeah. I saw it when it first came out. Back around the worst of my drinking days. Considering I was binge watching movies and TV shows just about as much as I was alcohol back in those days, gotta give Deadpool credit for being a movie that still sticks out from those foggy memories as something I enjoyed in an ocean of crap that I forgot the second the credits started rolling.

I've never watched it since then.

I don't mean any offense to Gina by referring to her "Angel Dust" character as Discount Chyna, but to me that's all she was when I saw it. I'd never seen her in anything before that, I'd never seen her in anything since that. I didn't know she was an MMA fighter. If I remember correctly, which I honestly might not, she didn't have a whole lot of spoken dialog in Deadpool, did she?

Yeah. I saw it before I made my last post, and that's why I commented on it. I was watching something on YouTube about Gina the other day and they showed some of the ending scenes of Deadpool and I realized then that "oh yeah, I have actually seen her in something before".

But that's kind of the point of my last post. Had Disney and the pink haired, Blue checkmarked Twitter fatty weirdos not tried to cancel her, I wouldn't even know her name today.

Deadpool is one of my all time fav super hero movies, btw, so yeah, I'm a bit biased. Plus it has Morena too!



It's actually one of mine too, but considering I generally hate the genre that's not really high praise. Although, I do feel that Deadpool was particularly exceptional to nearly all other comic book crap put out in the last 20 years.

I'd probably only put the Christopher Nolan Batman movies and possibly the first Guardians of the Galaxy on the same level (Michael Keaton will always be the real Batman, but I'm talking about the last 20 years).

Joker's the best IMO, but I don't even consider that a Comic Book movie. I'm convinced at this point that everything we saw in that film didn't actually happen anywhere but inside Arthur's deranged mind. He didn't live in Gotham. There was no Gotham. Bruce Wayne and the entire Wayne family was just pulled from the comics and movies we've all seen. I wonder though, in Arthur's universe which Joker did he prefer? I'm hoping it wasn't Jared Leto.

Next on the chopping block is Dr. Seuss.

Time to burn Hop on Pop and make room for My Non Racist Baby and other NYT children's bestsellers.

lol... Babar the Elephant is being cancelled too.

The business that controls the Seuss name says six books will no longer be published or sold because they portray people "in ways that are hurtful and wrong," reports the AP. Two well-known titles are in the mix, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street and If I Ran the Zoo, along with McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.

They only did it after Biden* was the first president in 20 years not to mention Dr. Seuss at all on Read Across America Day.

Guess they missed the part at the bottom of the Vox article where nobody was mentioned by Biden* on Read Across America Day because Biden* hasn't said anything to anyone about anything since they Weekend at Bernies him on January 20th.

To be fair to Michelle and the minority kids in the audience (and possibly under the costumes too), it hadn't yet been decided by pink haired weirdos on Twitter that Dr. Seuss was racist.

Remember just last year they were still photoshopping fake Dr. Seuss political cartoons to make it look like Dr. Seuss predicted Orange Man Bad.

How does Animation Director at ILM still have his job?

He just did the same thing they fired Gina for.

Looks like Jeremy Renner is next on the chopping block.


You know what? None of his personal life is anybody's fuckin' business.

Outside of Firefly and Cabin in the Woods, I'm not a fan of Joss' work, but none of his personal life is anybody's fuckin' business either.


Anybody celebrating the take-down of anybody is a sad, pathetic sub-human.





I'm not the biggest fan of Bill Maher either, but goddamnit if he isn't consistently right about this issue.

And tell me that his opinion of the whole Gina Carano thing doesn't sound exactly like mine.

Yeah, the design company for the ' odal rune' is a huge Dem donator, so we're left with ...

1. A DESIGN company didn't think anything of the lay out, and just by the dumbest of dumb luck, used this as the stage

OR

2. It was done entirely on purpose, to gaslight the Left into hurling accusations @ the Conservatives of being 'secret' Yatzies, but not so secret that they'd hide themselves for who they REALLY are.

Clearly, this was a set up, from the get go.

The symbols scene from The DaVinci Code was, imo, one of the more important lessons I've seen on the big screen, and one which we need to remind ourselves more often.

The concept of perspective, of past ideas, other views and of deep time, is too often lost on us.

Pretty good book, too. I wish in that scene they had mentioned the dates of those Spanish priests, and if they're still dressing like that. I'm guessing not, but I'm too lazy to bother looking it up. It doesn't really matter though, we're being force fed to think and accept things which sometimes aren't half true, or even completely false.

Because the woke mob tells us it is.

I reject that notion.

Yeah. It's been happening for a long time... way before woke was a thing.

Did you watch the Bill Maher vid I posted above?

He kind of did the same thing... "white supremacist" Latino Emannuel Cafferty got fired from his job for giving a white supremacist hand gesture out his window and Bill said he was just flicking a booger.

I don't know Bill's stance on the universal OK hand gesture, but I'm willing to bet he knows that whole thing is bullshit and not even bringing it up is part of the joke.

Gina Carano, who played a supporting role on Disney's "The Mandalorian," was fired after comparing the treatment of conservatives to the Holocaust. She's not banned from getting work, and in fact has already landed herself another gig -- funded by conservative pundit Ben Shapiro.

Cancel culture is nothing new.
Its philosophy -- that anyone can be excoriated for speaking their mind, that people are too sensitive, that the slightest offense can be fatal -- is just a repackaged extension of the decades-long culture wars and the "political correctness" dialogue popular in the 1990s. [See Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect" (1993–2002) if you want to know how long Maher has been making money by stoking the culture war.] It's also a remix of common First Amendment and censorship arguments, which often vastly misinterpret the constitutional and legal bounds of both terms.

What, exactly is cancel culture?

Is it someone getting fired for harassment or problematic views? No, that's a workplace doing its job.

Is it a popular figure losing fans or affiliations because of their past actions? No, that's the power of public opinion.

Is it a company choosing not to publish a book, or a group of people boycotting a brand? No, that's just the free market at work.
