EW.COM - The popular Joss Whedon fan site announced Monday it is 'closing down' and will become a read-only site 'at some stage' in the future. The site was a discussion board hub for all things related to The Avengers director and Firefly showrunner, who has inspired a passionate and loyal fan community that few writer-producers in Hollywood can match.

Sadly, this only supports what we've seen from Joss as of late... not acting very ' feminist ' friendly, in trashing women on their political views, mocking them on their looks, comparing them to dogs, insinuating they're whores...

Since Whedonesque is closing, I'm ever so thankful to Haken that this little corner of the 'Verse is still here.

I wish it could have closed on a better note, this seems to end in a bad way and that's sad.
But all things come to an end.

No Wish, you're living in delusional denial of what Joss has been documented caught doing. Add to the fact that he cheated on his wife... seriously, how does any of that have to do w/ " repub supporters " ?

The curtain is pulled on Joss. I understand your reluctance to admit the truth, because it may give some with whom you disagree ... something, I don't know what, but this is how it is.

To be fair he compared Donald Trump to a dog not Ivanka. I think Joss does go over the line when he's flipping out about politics. He really needs to tone that down, but it's pretty obvious it makes him lose his temper.

Regardless he's done a lot to support charities that support women. I've yet to read about any of them denouncing him.

He said Ivanka looked like a Pekingese. He made fun of Nicole Kidmans looks, ( for the crime of simply saying Trump should be given a chance ) and then made a crude sexual reference to a bunch of young women who were cancer survivors.

But he's raised $ for groups.

Tonight on White House Wife Hunt, Donny makes host P. Ryan give 2 more contestants the "Not a 10" card

— Joss Whedon (@joss) April 27, 2017



The excuse Joss gave for the Pekinese comment was lame, as it made no sense... who marries " under " their father in law ?

And then mocking Nichole Kidman after himself having retweeted this ...


I've never understood why people shame celebrities for speaking about politics. This is a democracy. We're all supposed to speak up.

So, Wishy, not only am I NOT a liar, I proved you completely and utterly wrong.

Face reality.

It really shouldn't surprise me you don't have a clue what I'm talking about, by now.

There could have been two horses standing there, or two people in gorilla suits, Joss would have cracked the same bad joke. Yes, he didn't care about what he said from the girls perspective, but the MAIN INTENT WAS TO RAG ON PAUL RYAN BEING PRETENTIOUS.

The fact that he didn't think about it at all from the perspective or the girls IS bad, and that's why he apologized, but the rest of the planet who has a clue knows it wasn't about the girls, AT ALL.

Now, let's hear about your glorious leader and how he thinks white supremacists are "good people". No, don't wanna talk about THAT, huh?

See, the difference? You only want to talk smack about people who don't belong to your cult. And you don't think that's a problem, because you LIKE manipulating.

The whole truth is THEY ARE BOTH WRONG. But you pick NOW to pick on Joss because you think you can score some kind of twisted "point" for your cult.
You could've done it in RWED, but you have to prove to the whole world how brainwashed you are.

WIFE Hunt... " not a 10 " card... Joss is clearly commenting on the looks of the females in the photo, one of them being in high school , suggesting the 'wife' could very well have been underage. How is that suppose to make Ryan look " pretentious " ? As the game show host ??

You're in full pretzel mode, Wishy

False, the entire planet saw it for what it was, which is why all the reactions via twitter were so strong against Joss.

Nice attempt to pivot away from Joss insulting women to something Trump said, utterly unrelated.

I have no cult, belong to no cult, unlike you, who can't STAND that Joss got called out, on multiple times, by many people, who saw the same thing, except some how you didn't.

I picked on Joss when he SAID these things, over in RWED, honey. Months ago. I'm not piling on, simply because his ex wife verified what everyone has suspected, for some time now.

And as for the feminism stuff, there are many other examples, where Joss wanted to glorify rape ( Of Inara, of Buffy, and let's not forget Kaylee's scene w/ Jubal ... ) where even some of the actors weren't too keen on the idea. But there I go again, " piling on "...

You know what the difference between JOSS and TRUMP is??

One is a MOVIE DIRECTOR, one has a mental illness and nuclear codes.
Joss really has no responsibility to be a moral example BUT A PRESIDENT SHOULD.


Pointing out Joss's THREE WHOLE stupid internet babblings (in a sad attempt to prove one-sided moral righteousness) and not taking the year and a half to acknowledge Trumps' over 1200 RECORDED LIES is the epitome of HYPOCRISY.


YOU ARE A BRAINWASHED HYPOCRITE. End of.

I don't think there's anything for Joss to ' get over' , to be honest. It's who he is, who he's always been, we're just seeing his true self. Aside from his personal life, there's been some rumblings from actors who worked w/ him on the direction he wanted to take certain characters. And yes, I get it, actors and directors don't always see eye to eye. It's not a crime against humanity. It happens. But when different folks from different shows recall the same sorts of issues...it's not just them.

What ever gnaws at Joss in his mind, I will credit him for turning it into some damn impressive work. This fan cite, and the time I've spent focusing on Firefly ( primarily ) and Buffy / Angel ( slightly lesser degree ) ... that's not me. I don't follow any other shows, fan pages or such. Save for Tolkien, I'm off in the real world, as it were. And sure, while I am a fan of 'sci-fi' , in general, it was and is never more than a bit of escapism. Watch it, enjoy it and then move on.

But to me, Firelfy ...it's just different. It's more than 44 minutes of diversion.

And that's why it bugs me to see Joss go sideways so publically. But it is what it is.

His ex-wife has caused some damage, but Joss has gone from directing mega hit films to now working on "Justice League" on the CW and writing the film "Batgirl", I just hope he doesn't end up doing rehash reboots like J.J. Abrams. He should go back to FOX sit down with Tim Manear and stay off twitter. I don't know who's gone more bat shit crazy, him or Judd Aptow. As for him being difficult to work with, I don't care, from what I've heard, MARVEL is run by assholes and many directors won't work for them, plus many actors are also assholes. And I hate to say this but I read the Captain can be a real pain in the ass on and off the set


Firefly, Buffy and Angel are history, it's time for Joss to get off twitter, go back to FOX and call Tim. He needs to get away from comic book super hero's...AND STAY OFF TWITTER!!

The ex caused him damage, as I suspect he did to her. Probably would have helped if he didn't cheat on her, but who knows if both played that game ? Sounds like he was doing it for quite some time... hadn't heard who it was with, or if they were actresses. Seems like that news would have gotten out. Maybe in time, it will.


I think Joss has gotten to a level of fame and status that he can't be told what to do. Kinda like a certain President. Telling him to stay off twitter is futile. Simply not gonna happen. Unless you set up a go-fund me drive to BUY twitter, and then block him ? Yeah, crazy.

But Fox screwed him. Everybody knows it, it's not a secret, it's obvious.

Screw him once, it's their fault. Allow them to screw him a second time.....

With respect, I never thought of this as a Whedon fansite. Of course, that distinction is easy for me to make, as I don't think much of Buffy or Angel. To me, this has always been THE Firefly fan site

You never challenged the network site's claim to be the Original Board (OB) but, as this site was up 5 months before the show premiered, I've often wonder'd

IIRC, there were attempts to shut it down over the years but the killing blow didn’t come around 2012 or so.
I was there at the start, but I tended to spend more time here.

I guess I missed out on that. When I looked to join, it must have been in a shutdown period.

"OB" did and does mean the "Official Board". I was a fairly long standing member there. Many a good conversation was to be had back in the day.

That OB was shut down by 2007, right?



No it was shut down in 2012, if I am remembering right.

There were several shut down periods over the years.
