He’s not a kid anymore, but he’ll always be MY kid.
The b!X-organized second annual benefit screening of the movie “Serenity” brought the PDX Browncoats (and others) out in force this weekend in Portland, Oregon. The proceeds of the benefit will go to Equality Now and the Women’s Film Initiative.
The global benefit screening effort (which b!X was instrumental in organizing last year as a birthday present to writer/director Joss Whedon, whose favorite charity is Equality Now) has raised more than $41,000 thus far this year. The funds from the global screenings go to Equality Now.

There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That’s me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That’s a great deal harder, and that’s Equality Now. It’s not about politics; it’s about basic human decency.
– Joss Whedon
Happy Birthday to Joss Whedon, and Congratulations to my son the feminist on another rollicking successful Can’t Stop the Serentiy benefit bash.
