48 Reporters Asked This Guy The Same Dumb Question About Women. His Response? Absolutely Perfect.

Joss Whedon, director of "The Avengers" and the creator of some of my favorite shows ever, has a history of writing strong women characters. Back in 2006, the organization Equality Now honored him for being a staunch ally for women. In his thank-you speech, he decided to talk about the tedious and vapid question journalists never stop asking him. At 6:25, I thought he nailed everything wrong with our culture, but then he takes it to the next level at 6:50 and hammers home the horrible reality.
