Completely agree and I think you make an important argument here against #cancelculture. I am way out of the know in things pop culture, so didn't even realize Whedon has this history/reputation. I discovered BTVS in grad school b/c some of my peers were obsessed. This was 2004-2006. I enjoyed the episodes I watched. Your article actually makes me want to revisit the series, JW be damned. Let's celebrate the plot, character development and all of the humans who brought BTVS to light in a non-prima donna, abusive, asshole-ish way. Great article, Friend!
