Spam via Private Message

Any kind of writing or casting that fails at inclusiveness is unimaginative, lazy, regressive, and therefore boring. This is not about opinions. This is about facts. Moffat’s writing is sexist. This is a fact. You can’t magically make it go away by not listening to the people who are affected by...

Nope. Still not seeing any of that anywhere in DW. Another thing to keep in mind here is that you by virtue of being a (cis) man haven't suffered a lifetime of "death by a thousand cuts" that would make you sensitive to these things, so one reason you aren't seeing them is because you never needed ...

All his female characters are essentially the same one-dimensional character at different stages (the feisty young woman, the feisty mother, the feisty older woman), they all are emotionally dependent on a man (usually the Doctor, who is manipulative and often even abusive towards... well, everyone ...

The city is beautiful and I recommend seeing it (but then I am from there so I might be biased ;). I've never seen the Sisters at the Gasometer, but judging from the other gigs I've seen there it is an awful, awful venue. Terrible architecture, terrible acoustics. I mean idk, maybe it's got better i...

I'll have to google Chibnall, but it's really not hard to be less sexist/queerphobic/racist/disrespectful towards fans than Moffat.

The Librarians has charmed me into watching its second season. It's silly and ridiculous, but kinda nice, and the closest the 'mericans will get to Doctor Who, I think.

Sad to hear that it's come to this, that someone in one of the greatest professions in the world has to leave to preserve their well-being. I'm a fan of knowledge, and of good ways to pass it on.

I sincerely hope that this is someone stealing from The Onion... then again, there's that time an American school fired a teacher because he used the word "homophone".

The finale of Jessica Jones. What a show. What a show. Daredevil was pretty s**t for the hype that surrounded it, but this show? It's great. The ratio of wow vs. flaws is excellent.
