IF YOU WANNA BE MY LOVER
YOU GOTTA tell me really explicitly because I can’t tell when people are actually flirting with me
E-Nabling the Future is an organization of volunteers who produce 3D-printed prosthetic superhero arms for kids in need.
This is the tightest shit. I’m totally jealous of that kid’s sweet Wolverine hand.
i would give my left kidney for asexual taystee jefferson.
she’s an extrovert who cares more about her family in all its forms than she is in dating.
none of her flashbacks or current prison drama revolve around fucking.
when poussey kisses her she says she’s “not like…
*ahem- 50 year old…
But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with
Moffat is personally responsible for my transformation from a massive sobbing mess of a Who fan to a person who has not watched a full episode in literally years
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
