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
Look at all the white faces without the label of terrorist under their pictures!
Where are the derogatory slurs that make the crimes a result of their race/culture?
Where are the think pieces that make their “strange/foreign” religion a key factor in their decision?
When society has taught cis straight white men that they are entitled to everything, why does it surprise us that when it’s denied they turn violent?
The faces of terrorism.
LOOK HOW RELEVANT THIS IS RIGHT NOW.
perfection. THE tumblr post.
Émilie Régnier: Mali Passport
via foam: ‘I am really driven by the idea of showing a West African society that is growing,’ says Régnier. That means ignoring the easy and the rote: pictures of elites quaffing champagne, or images cataloguing the atrocities of war. Witnessing with a camera takes many forms. For Régnier, photographic truth is located in the bodily presence of young West Africans proudly negotiating their future, a diverse future of many possibilities.’
New Zealand Policewoman to Indian cab driver, “You come here and get all the Kiwi jobs. Eat your fucking curry and fuck off to India. This is a Kiwi job.”
NEW ZEALAND - A (white) policewoman has been found guilty of racially abusing a taxi driver of Indian origin in Queenstown, New Zealand.
Constable Jeanette May McNee, 44, had denied the charge, laid after an incident in November last year.
But Judge Tony Couch found her guilty of using insulting words to Ganesh Paramanathan after a two-day trial in Queenstown District Court.
Judge Couch found she had told Mr Paramanathan among other things during a dispute about a fare to “eat your f***ing curry and f*** off to India” and “this is a Kiwi job”.
Mr Paramanathan said he warned her not to touch him and that he would call the police. “She got very aggressive, held the door handle and said 'I am the police' .”
Fleeing court as soon as the guilty verdict was delivered, Jeanette McNee was whisked away by one of the many supporters who accompanied her in court during the trial.
McNee will be sentenced on September 23.
