So this weekend Doctor Who regenerated for the 13th time and is now a woman. Jodie Whittaker is replacing Peter Capaldi as the iconic Timelord.
As with all things speculative fiction and social justice, social media has been lit, to put it mildly with everyone expressing opinions for and against the new Doktah.
I have a thoughts on the new casting as well. Hence me writing this piece and you reading.
Them: We Finally Have A Female Doctor
I have serious concerns. Pearl Mackie got the boot from the series.
Can’t help but wonder if this was because of the new white female Doctor Who.
Because screwing over black women for blond beckies is textbook white fauxminism. I’m going to reserve judgment for now until the new companion is announced and we find out what ultimately lies ahead for Bill Potts. But yeah, concerns I have them.
3. A Brand New Day
When you learn that showrunner and raging bigot Steve Moffat has left Doctor Who and you can finally watch the show again.
5. CONGRATULATIONS, You Played Yourself
White social justice in a nutshell.
Fauxgressives are patting themselves on the back because they have a white female #DoctorWho thinking they’ve stuck it to the oppressors.
However they conveniently forget that for the last four years, they’ve supported and financed Steve Moffat one of the biggest misogynists/racists/homophobes/douchebags in the industry.
