The thing I like about Joss is that he doesn’t objectify women, in that he writes them as actual women - you know, real humans with real personalities. Some are tough, but they also like to be girls (Buffy). Some are deadly, but they can also be tender (Zoe). Some are frail, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be strong (Willow). But at the same time, he recognizes that, fuck it, women are beautiful and they have beautiful bodies and as long as everything is also practical, why can’t there be eyecandy?
And he does the same thing with men.
Lets face it. No one bitched about this booty shot. No one.
No one bitched about the other 200 and some more butt shots either.
