Joss Whedon takes a stand.
Even though this blog is pretty new, I'm pretty sure I've made it known I'm an uber-huge fan of writer/director/TV god Joss Whedon. And it's not just because he creates amazing work and has a brilliant sense of humor. Though we've yet to truly see much of his political activism (though his three TV series and one movie are pretty great political allegories), what we have seen is brilliant, and if it's anything like this post at the fan-run blog Whedonesque (of which I am a member, UnpluggedCrazy), he could almost maybe sort of be the next John Lennon.
Read the post. It's more than worth it. A glut of celebrities may have hailed Africa as a cause, but Joss remains one of the strongest voices out there about gender equality. I'd also just like to point out that the root problem is also the world's lack of humanism; all people have to treat all people well before the plague can be truly be cured.
In any case, remember Du'a Khalil.
