I really don’t get people who do not like, or ‘slag off’ Moffat . (Excluding those who are being humorous) If you have nothing nice to say about him, don’t say anything? No point in making a huge fuss over it? It’s not going to change what has happened in a story line, etc. So your complaint is pointless. Besides, I doubt half of you who are complaining could write better material than himself. Put a sock in it guys. I’m sorry if I have offended anyone, but this is just my opinion, and I stand by it.
Oh, for pity’s sake.
I say something because I don’t like my entire gender being reduced to ~*mysterious*~ sex objects who never get character development besides changing from The Sexy Damsel to The Mother. I say something because Amy Pond, River Song, and Clara Oswald could have been amazing characters and we will never see them realize that potential. I say something because children watch this show, and sexism like that displayed in Moffat’s writing is self-perpetuating when children grow up thinking it’s how things are supposed to be. I say something because, under Moffat’s leadership, the Doctor has changed from someone who inspires me to someone I wouldn’t give the time of day to (much less travel through the universe with).
I say something because, “there’s nothing ‘only’ about being a girl.”

Welcome to Night Vale.
We may not always agree with you, but nevertheless we’ve gone through what you’re going through now. And it’s three buses, a long walk, and eight quid in a taxi from happy.
So have a hug
have a cute Adipose
and have our sympathy for your feels.
I’d heard representations of houses were good.
So it has a papercraft TARDIS.
The Doctor lives there, and his companions for a while, so I figure it counts.
This is what happens when nerds believe in the supernatural.
"There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands." -Steven Moffat
As I happily sat down with my bowl of macaroni to watch this week’s episode of Doctor Who, it came to my attention that Madame Vastra and Jenny were back. Yes, the fan-beloved interspecies Victorian lesbians are once again making an appearance; expect even more clamors for a spin-off to crowd Tumblr soon.
But something has been stuck in my craw, so to speak, for a while now. I watched them exchange loving looks and Vastra call Jenny smart and beautiful and remembered the quote above.
The lizard-woman from the dawn of time and her wife aren’t needy, not like that. They aren’t hunting for husbands. They can go for an infinite amount of time happily without men. So how do they fit into a world run by a man who believes women need men?
