Is that sexist to criticize Joss for having a thing for sweet girls whose smiles cure all ills? I rather thought that was pointing out that Joss is oversimplifying women's roles, making women personality avatars. Just as there's the crazy, waifish brunette women whose allure hides a dangerous instability and violence within (River, Dru, Fred in Pylea, Bennett in Dollhouse).

It seems to me such criticism is more about criticizing an oversimplification of women that can arguably be termed sexist. The criticism is then of sexist tropes perpetuated by Joss, not sexist bashing like what we're talking about with Marti.
