Would Freud have seen Buffy as just Buffy? "The endless pseudo-scholarly theorising over Winnie the Pooh, Harry Potter and even Buffy the Vampire Slayer reflects a culture that finds it increasingly difficult to distinguish between childish entertainment and adult intellectual nourishment."
A tenuous a link to the Whedon-verse given that Buffy is mentioned only briefly in this perspective on the validity of Harry Potter as a metaphor; however, I think it is interesting to apply the same critical eye towards our analysis of the works of Whedon & Co. While I disagree with the notion that Buffy is devoid of subtext, I wonder if we don't create metaphors where there were none intended.
