Joss Whedon is My Secret Boyfriend

If you haven't seen it yet, Joss Whedon's award acceptance speech for Equality Now:

"Why aren't you asking a hundred other guys why they *don't* write strong women characters?"

I got to the end of the speech and burst into tears, because he said so succinctly what I've been trying to say with so much of my fiction.

Whedon is my new Secret Boyfriend.

Does that mean that Jon Stewart is back on the market? 'Cause, if so...

Oh, honey, you can *take* him!

Whedon's my new man.

Jon Stewart can be Secret Boyfriend Stand-In #1 when I'm out of Whedon news...

I'd fight you for him - but I think I'm related. His mother was Lee Stearns - mine is Kathy Stearns, and I suspect cousinhood in some or another direction.

Which is pretty cool in and of itself.
