A take-down of four claims that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel are misandristic (anti-male): that Anya as a misandrist is given a double standard where she is forgiven while the misogynistic Warren isn't, that Angel's "Billy" says all men are misogynists, that the show promotes matriarchy, and that Buffy's defeat of Caleb is a call to violence against men. I explain how the feminist message portrays female-empowerment without male-disempowerment.

The shots I used to represent the minority of feminists who are misandrists are of posts by the user Allecto, author of "A Rapist's View of the World: Joss Whedon and Firefly". Just by watching Firefly, she figured out that Joss is a misogynist who rapes his wife, and "Mrs. Whedon" (Kai Cole) only stays with him for his money. If the actual misandrists think Joss is a misogynist, that should clue people in to what Joss actually is, which is a believer in gender equality.

This is a remake of my first contribution to YouTube: six videos consisting of me rambling to the camera for about an hour. This should be more entertaining. There are almost 250 Buffy and Angel clips used for this video.
