Some good points here.

Ok, fellow white lady nerds, I lost my shit about a female dr who too. I am pumped. It feels like there’s a change in the air. BUT,

We need to pay attention to the fact that WOC [women of color] are being sidelined for this movement of powerful women in mainstream nerd media.

What is your response to all of the women who disagree with this decision? You can’t so readily dismiss them by flinging around accusations of sexism. Nor should you for all of the male fans who disagree with this either.

Women can sometimes be sexist too.

Ok, let’s try and keep this civil and non political. If I have to lock a Dr. Who thread I’m going to feel rather embarrassed about it.

I’m sure this will all be forgotten when Rifftrax does The Five Doctors next month. 😉

Isn’t this whole subject inherently political though?

believe it or not, I don’t think racial switch would bother me so much. But would still bother me, after over 20 regenerations of various characters seen in both new and old Who, that not once did race change.

So much for “color blind”?

Nice.

Fictional character. Who gives a shit if they change him into a woman? Get over it.

I don’t care about the change myself. I forgot who said it, but someone remarked how Doctor Who has no specifically masculine characteristics so it’s not that big of a deal for me.

I do get annoyed when people throw strong words like “sexist” around when discussing something as trivial as a TV show.

Just to be clear, who called anybody a sexist?

I’m sick of everyone giving Warbler shit and even suggesting that what he is saying makes him someone who is acting like a sexist pig. He simply doesn’t agree with the change about a character and to call him sexist is completely out of line.

This is why “liberal snowflake” is a commonly used term. Your calling him a sexist for a creative disagreement over a character and their identity.

You know, it’s ironic when people call liberals “snowflakes” but some people can’t even handle a magic fictional space person changing gender.

What I don’t understand is why they didn’t go all the way PC and choose a black female gay actor to play the part.

Things change.

ok, I’m not going to talk to you about this anymore cause you just don’t want to get it and you don’t want to listen. Please go on considering me the sexist pig you know me to be.

This is a truly idiotic conversation.

Conveniently, with a bit of editing, I can turn this quote right around back at you:

why are the nerds mad today

https://twitter.com/spookperson/status/886645009218322432

apparently the time traveling magic space wizard who flies around in a box has boobs now and this is not to be believed

https://twitter.com/spookperson/status/886645463503454208

“fictional body changing space person does not have dong this time”

https://twitter.com/spookperson/status/886646848269701121

isn’t it canonical in that show that the aliens have like two hearts and switch genders all the time anyway

typical fake nerds

For some reason, I don’t think this is about the historical precedent of the series.

The idea of stopping to watch a TV show because a woman is a main character is ridiculous to me.

You missing the point. This isn’t because the main character is female. This is because a character who was male

FOR OVER 50 YEARS!!!

is now suddenly female.

I’m not sure if you noticed, but a lot of things have changed from 50 years ago.

No need to yell at me also.

Its stupid and done not for quality of the show or for the fans, but to please the feminists.

Why does this character have to be man? Isn’t it about time that we had a woman one? Wasn’t it about time that we had a woman as the main character of two (!) Star Wars movies?

I’m also not sure why you have such a problem with feminists.

I’ve only seen a couple episodes and from what I understand there are all manners of science fictional, fantastical, magical elements. Guess becoming a different gender is too unbelievable or something, who knows, I’m sure there’s a reasonable and non-reactionary anti-PC explanation for the outrage.

yeah I know, I am a sexist pig.

It’s weird that you acknowledge it but still don’t think it’s a bad thing.

It’s weird that you either failed to recognize sarcasm

I did consider that possibility.
