I’m pretty sure Junot Diaz was talking about race.
Obviously sexism is oppression but it doesn’t feel like the quote fits the context Wheaton puts it in the same way.
yeah, this is one of many instances in which Joss Whedon needs to sit the hell down
*sips grape drink*
The irony of using Junot Diaz’s quote about race, as scrubbar pointed out, while saying that his daughter liked Maria Hill who he whitewashed.

In Buffy 1x07, Darla says to Angel “Remember Budapest?”
Hawkeye says “This is just like Budapest all over again” to Black Widow in The Avengers
GUYS. BUDAPEST IS A BUFFY REFERENCE.
Best answer I’ve seen so far!
Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the tesseract?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
