From a quote on [community profile] pointoforigin's LJ:

Every time a lesbian dies, every time a wife is widowed, every time a mother grieves the death of her child, every time rape is used to define a woman's character, it serves the story that the author wanted to tell--the story the author chose to tell. And I am no longer content with "it makes sense in the context of the story" as an explanation or an excuse. That "logic" is just as suspect.

TELL DIFFERENT STORIES.

FUCKING PREACH.

This is why I flipped Joss Whedon the nastiest bird I could after Serenity. Just...no. I mean, parts of Firefly were bad enough, but man he really capped it with Serenity. He creates women to be used, abused, and destroyed as plot devices and yet is still lauded as some Ideal Feminist Scriptwriter and just...no. SWEET JESUS JUST STOP. He's a mighty fine storyteller, sure, and he gets amazing performances from his actors but the man is an egotistical shit who so firmly believes that he's writing STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS and has SUCH RESPECT FOR WOMEN that he can't/won't hear his critics.



Anyway.

Breaking Muscle has an article on being a quality fitness professional, but many of the points they make can be applied to other life activities and goals. Basically: 1. Have Something to Say 2. Put Forth Extraordinary Effort 3. Master the Basics 4. Never Make the Same Mistake Twice 5. Strive for Perfection 6. Don’t Be Weak With People 7. Be Responsible and Accountable 8. Become a Subject Matter Expert 9. Look Out for Your Clients 10. Do What Jack Would Do (by this he means model oneself on Jack LaLanne and be professional at all times) 11. Know You Don’t Know Everything 12. Learn to Write and Speak.

Yep. Good policies for life in general.
