Male in Television Shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural

The feminism is also out the window, well, Spike tries to rape Buffy and he and we never hear the end of it, he must get a soul to be worthy, and he must endure torment and torture along the way. Meanwhile, Buffy uses Spike repeatedly and rapes him in the mix, and she’s not even sorry and never called to account. One of those irony moments when the purveyors of a vision of a more just power demonstrate that their only vision is that if she’d had that testosterone pulse in the womb she’d be just like every conquering and lordly male in history [and have the testicles to prove it]. Here, from someone who said it better than me:

Rated NC-17 ♥ Buffy, Spike and Angel in the future.

She is the main character of a formerly wild popular show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer....

Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered in 1997 and ran until 2003.

Wow, Lulurose, two really great articles! I hadn't read the Battis/Slayage one, though I read Slayage a lot. It was so beautifully written, so dense with subject matter and he was so touchingly open about his own depression and other problems that it made we want to buy his book, which I will look for . There were so many subjects to discuss in it, for example, poverty and wealth - the way Cordelia and Fred live out their privilege. But I don't think they were privileged in the same way, though both seem to come from affluent families, Cordelia's family was really rich until the IRS caught up with them, which means they were basically crooks, and Fred's parents, although they can afford a trip abroad, and to send their daughter to a very good university, aren't rich like Cordelia's were, or with a different attitude much to think about. Thank you for posting! I'm not up on the comics, waiting for the TPB's so i can't comment on what's happening in the Buffyverse - but I have read some fierce criticism online -that Spike and Angel have become caricatures of themselves...I hope its not true. I hope to find out soon...

Thank you for posting the article links - I will read and then we can all discuss - I feel like I really need some Spike and Spuffy and Buffyverse Love right now. I have to admit, that the last two issue of A&F have made me very sad - especially with a dark ff story that I read recently, I am wanting very much to get a reminder of why I have such an admiration for the Buffyverse.

Sorry, but I've not had a chance to read the articles yet - will get to at least one tonight and the other tomorrow. One thing for sure, the Buffyverse and Angelverse have used women most cruelly in the sexual context. And how they used poor Connor with Cordelia in the sexual relationship, that one is hard to take, but Connor connecting to Cordelia/Dark Cordy did work because he was so lost and in need of any kind of authority adult figure and connection with another person. They really used Connor as a whipping post for Angel/Angelus and the victim symbol of endless violence and vengeance.
