alexeia_drae: (whose face am i wearing)
What does it say when the two female protagonists of Joss Whedon's shows seems to be unpopular characters, while the supporting characters sore in popularity? I've heard some speculation that with "Dollhouse" it is because of Eliza Dushku's acting, but you can't say the same for Sarah Michelle Gellar, who was phenomenal as Buffy. Yet when you have a show with characters who play a different person each week, I can see why ED's one trick pony acting would get tiresome, especially when compared to Dichen Lachman and Enver Gjokai. Yet I guess it doesn't bother me so much.

More thoughts that I hope are somewhat coherent below the cut. )

The Results

Just a brief follow up on the poll in my previous entry, because numbers are fun.

163 people voted. Unfortunately, only 10 were male, meaning the results are skewed. Of the women who voted, 128 (83.7%) voted yes. 9 men (90.0%) voted yes. I also isolated the first 10 women who voted so that I could have a sample size similar to the male one to compare. Interestingly, 8 (80%) voted yes, which is the exact opposite of what I predicted.

I will say, this blows a major hole in my hypothesis. As a whole, the vast majority of people would find someone using their body for sex even if they had no memory of it and suffered no physical harm from it disturbing (89.5%). Even though the sample was skewed due to lack of male input, I will say it indicates that all people regardless of gender wants to have control over what happens to their body.

This past week, there was a discussion on [livejournal.com profile] stormwreath journal that got me wondering about gender differences with regard to how being a doll are played out. To me, the concept of someone removing my being, replacing it with someone else who then goes and has sex with my body is very disturbing, even if I don't remember what took place and suffered no physical harm as a result. [livejournal.com profile] stormwreath did not find the concept as disturbing, and I started to wonder if it was a gender difference. Hence I created the poll below. If you are a woman, only answer the first question. If you are a man, only answer the second question.

[Poll #1392702]

I am so happy with the latest episode because Joss has finally come through and not let me down with the concept. Major spoilers for episode 8! )

Some of the comments I received in my previous post lead me to believe I should do a follow up post about what consent is and is not and the implications that has for Dollhouse. More plus spoilers for episodes 1 through 6 below the cut! )
