In the post, Ms. Cole, a film producer, said that Mr. Whedon hid multiple affairs with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends during their 16-year marriage. His explanation for why he had so many female friends, she said, was that his mother raised him as a feminist.
Moreover, Ms. Cole called out his hypocrisy for preaching feminist ideals while using their marriage as a shield to commit adultery. In essence, she branded Mr. Whedon, the director of the coming Justice League superhero film, a fake male feminist.
Its a label that appears to be gaining cultural currency, especially in the Trump era.
Saturday Night Live aired a sketch last season called Girl at a Bar in which a succession of seemingly sensitive male feminists (I worked for Hillary, one says) try to pick up a woman at a bar, only to resort to misogynistic language when rebuffed.

Leftists are the most gullible people. Look at the people who voted for Hillary, or Obama or Bill.
I thought adultery was not against feminism?
Maybe she wasn’t invited to participate? haha.
Lib chicks are easy.
Wait a minute! This is Joss Whedon? ‘Firefly’ Joss Whedon?
I read elsewhere that they were separated for the past 5 years, anyway, and are just getting around to divorcing now.
Must be Big Alimony involved...
“Follow the money”
Who knows. Kali-fornia is a community property state, I believe, if that is where is is being filed.
This is news? It has been well known that when you Pretend An Interest it is easy to draw women to you.
Say anything to get home plate.
Yep, everybody knows that Trumpsters are exactly the kind of men who fake being "feminists", and also that nobody was doing it before 2015.
Supposedly, Harry Knowles (Ain’t it Cool News) and some movie reviewer/writer for Drafthouse Films (part of the Alamo Draft House chain of theaters) are also in the doghouse for their use of being “feminists” as a shield for their unwanted behavior around women.
I get the impression none of these guys have finished growing up yet.
The truth of words:
Femanism ..... equality of the sexes.
Ex: women register for the Draft
Friend told me: “I even took her to chick flick to get into her pants”!
That's a two way street as women will pretend interest into something an attractive guy likes in order to encourage his interest.
There are so many rules and they are always changing. It must be exhausting to be a liberal.
I’m exhausted just reading the article.
Firefly was awesome. I could not believe they ended it.
Maybe, like the original star trek, it can be reborn someday.
But without Kaylee ... it wouldn’t be the same.
That is true but they aren’t as calculating and effective. And women are more vulnerable and easily deceived.
