Joss Whedon's "feminist" credentials are in serious doubt after this screenplay draft discovery

Whedon was originally hired to write the screenplay for Wonder Woman 12 years ago. But as the leaked copy of his draft signals, he's far from the pro-feminism advocate some leftists might've wanted to think he was:
...Whedon, who has prided himself on being one of Hollywood’s most virulent liberals and wannabe male feminist allies, is suffering a huge backlash after his original script for Wonder Woman was leaked online.

[...] Whedon’s original take on Diana Prince, however, isn’t going down well with his feminist friends. For a start, they are objecting to his descriptions of Wonder Woman: “To say she is beautiful is almost to miss the point…her body is curvaceous, but taut as a drawn bow.”

Whedon also has taken flak for having Wonder Woman being called a “whore,” a “bitch” and a “feisty little filly.” Then there’s the fact her story is told from Steve Trevor’s point of view-rather than the Wonder Woman-centered take in the finished movie. And Diana does un-feminist-friendly things like fight with her mother.
It sounds vaguely similar to some of the recent stories written by other phonies in the comics proper. His description of WW as a "drawn bow" sounds pretty bizarre and idiotic too. On top of all that, it should be no surprise somebody who wrote the introduction to the Identity Crisis paperback could conceive such obnoxious moments in his screenplay draft and rely on a man's POV instead of a woman's.

The backlash against Whedon now could be just what he had coming to him all these years, and as a result, he probably won't be remembered well in showbiz history.
