A: Because you’re still asking me that question.“

"American Rhetoric: Joss Whedon - Equality Now Address" (15 May 2006) http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/josswhedonequalitynow.htm

„The idea of changing culture is important to me, and it can only be done in a popular medium.“

—  Joss Whedon

"We Don’t Say Indian" in Slay Age (2005); also quoted in Ink-stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology (2010) by Jennifer K. Stuller
Kontext: If I made a series of lectures on PBS on why there should be feminism, no one would be coming to the party, and it would be boring. The idea of changing culture is important to me, and it can only be done in a popular medium.

„I don't actually have anything against anybody, unless their belief precludes everybody else's.“

—  Joss Whedon

" Joss Whedon: Atheist & Absurdist http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EReyF2ZzXGA", comments made in a Q&A-session in Australia, while promoting his movie Serenity (2005)
Kontext: I don't actually have anything against anybody, unless their belief precludes everybody else's. … I am an atheist and an absurdist and I have been for many years. I've actually taken a huge amount of flack for that.

„I believe the only reality is how we treat each other.“

—  Joss Whedon

"Joss Whedon: Atheist & Absurdist", comments made in a Q&A-session in Australia, while promoting his movie Serenity (2005)
Kontext: I believe the only reality is how we treat each other. The morality comes from the absence of any grander scheme, not from the presence of any grander scheme.

„I think that people need two kinds of fulfillment — one in which you give and one in which you hold back.“

—  Joss Whedon

"Joss Whedon on life, love, and leaving 'Buffy' behind", Stanford Daily (16 May 2003) http://daily.stanford.edu/article/2003/5/16/jossWhedonOnLifeLoveAndLeavingBuffyBehind
Kontext: I think that people need two kinds of fulfillment — one in which you give and one in which you hold back. Part of fulfillment is need, is longing, is being unfulfilled, that’s the nature of tragedy and a lot of drama. Very often, what the fans want, they get. But very often, what they want, they can’t quite have, because we want them to feel the way our characters felt...

„The first thing I ever thought of when I thought of Buffy, the movie, was the little…blonde girl who goes into a dark alley and gets killed, in every horror movie. The idea of Buffy was to subvert that idea, that image, and create someone who was a hero where she had always been a victim.“

—  Joss Whedon

Welcome to the Hellmouth (1997) DVD Commentary
Kontext: The first thing I ever thought of when I thought of Buffy, the movie, was the little... blonde girl who goes into a dark alley and gets killed, in every horror movie. The idea of Buffy was to subvert that idea, that image, and create someone who was a hero where she had always been a victim. That element of surprise … genre-busting is very much at the heart of both the movie and the series.

„I think there's a lot of people out there who say we must not have horror in any form, we must not say scary things to children because it will make them evil and disturbed… That offends me deeply, because the world is a scary and horrifying place, and everyone's going to get old and die, if they're that lucky. To set children up to think that everything is sunshine and roses is doing them a great disservice.“

—  Joss Whedon

Said to Michael Silverberg of NPR; quote featured in the Buffy Monster Book (2000)
Kontext: I think there's a lot of people out there who say we must not have horror in any form, we must not say scary things to children because it will make them evil and disturbed... That offends me deeply, because the world is a scary and horrifying place, and everyone's going to get old and die, if they're that lucky. To set children up to think that everything is sunshine and roses is doing them a great disservice. Children need horror because there are things they don't understand. It helps them to codify it if it is mythologized, if it's put into the context of a story, whether the story has a happy ending or not. If it scares them and shows them a little bit of the dark side of the world that is there and always will be, it's helping them out when they have to face it as adults.
