Did anyone else see that a new Buffy The Vampire Slayer film is being made, but that Joss Whedon won't be involved? WTF is the point of that?
Without Whedon, won't the film just be a remake of the decidedly less kick-ass1992 original? WHY MUST HOLLYWOOD SUCK THE LIFE (and feminism) OUT OF EVERYTHING GOOD?!?
Whedon has responded (cursorily) to this colossal snub, but its really the rabid Buffy fan base that has its vampire stakes in a splinter (does that even make sense? Anyway, they're annoyed). A few comments:

EPIC. FAIL. The only reason Buffy the Vampire Slayer is relevant today is simple: JOSS WHEDON! I will boycot this movie with the rage of a 1000 rabid fanboys. Where is the petition? I don't know why I'm even getting angry at such idiocy. This movie won't even happen. LONG LIVE JOSS WHEDON!!!!!!!

I can't believe that this is even being talked about. My ears are being raped along with some of the happiest memories that I have. I love the whedonverse, it has been the constant lighthouse in many peoples stormy lives. I will boycot and join in the protest against this hollywood make-a-buck abomination. To quote Thomas Jefferson "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." long live the revolution.
So yeah, people are pissed about this. (You can read more comments here.) But what about you, Bitch reader? Do you care about this?
