The doctor will never be a woman. There are plenty of women in the show that are admirable role models. I think you're just full ofsh it. Stop pushing your american views onto Doctor Who, a BRITISH show, with BRITISH values. It's unbelievable how obnoxious and hypocritical feminists are, especially you third-wave feminists. Always spouting "equal rights" but, "Can't hit me, cause I'm a girl!" You probably won't respond to this because you know I'm right and the whovianfeminism stance is weak.
This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art.

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”
The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.
His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.
“‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.”—

I absolutely hate asking for help, but I don’t know what else to do. I’m a 19 year old female disabled domestic abuse survivor who is in pretty desperate need of housing. This is the second time that my mom, sister, and I have been homeless since leaving my abusive step dad in 2008. My mom started dating my abusive step dad when I was two, so I don’t know a life without him. He tore down my self esteem and prevented me from having a childhood as well as having friends, and once we left him (I was 14) I hoped that things would be better, but nothing really improved. My mother and I do not get along, and it is extreme, which most likely stems from her life being a rollercoaster as well, but she is constantly at my throat and I can’t handle this constant anxiety coming from my home life anymore. Right now I am relying only on my sex work (I sell my nude photos) in order to buy food and necessities for my entire family. Because of this I am unable to save anything because I don’t make very much money at all and I have been forking over cash to many people who don’t understand the stress and strain I’m under. I have dealt with constant bullying at home (and at school, before I graduated) my entire life, as well as constantly being evicted and moved around and without basic needs such as food and clothing. I’ve lived in over 20 places so far and have attended 10 schools in my life, and I’d really love to stay somewhere for more than a few months for once. Currently, there is nowhere for me to stay besides my cousins two bedroom, one bathroom with 5 other individuals. I do not have a bed of my own, and I have a chronic bone disease as well as other chronic bone problems, so I’m in extreme pain 24/7. I also have anxiety and ocd, so as you can imagine, my mind is being exposed to a very negative environment and I have finally admitted to myself that I am depressed, and have been for a very long time. I want to begin my journey to happiness. That starts with getting away. I need help with housing. I am looking for funds for only myself as my family (although I’m sure they have good intentions, and I know I shouldn’t be making excuses for them) are very toxic and I am fighting nightly anxiety attacks being around them on top of my heavy amount of stress, so they will not be coming with me(my mom is saving for a place for she and my sister.) I need roughly $4,200 to afford to move into an apartment (a few months rent in advance, to cover myself if I don’t make enough one month until I am accepted for disability and find a part time job, furniture necessities, and groceries. Also money to pay for my wonderful dog to be able to live with me.) I apologize if this is scattered, but I’m explaining this the best I can while enduring a migraine I’ve had for two weeks and my hands shaking with anxiety(I’m a mess right now), so please forgive me if it is. Even $1 is help, and I ask that if you can’t afford to help, please share this. I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this so so much. I love you all, please remember that if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here for you. xo Amber
Please please please take the time to read and re-blog this and help out a person in EXTREME need. It means the world for even just a re-blog because its a chance for her story to get out there and have a chance at living a peaceful life. Amber is full of dedication, courage, life and so much more. I’ve never seen a more generous person in my entire life. She would do absolutely ANYTHING to help anyone in need. Even if it’s something from a sweet complement to a stranger, to getting the whole Kansas City Chiefs team to sign a foot ball in memory of a child that passed away who’s most favorite football team was the Kansas City Chiefs. She goes above and beyond for anyone, despite her issues and the negativity of the world. Her whole world is crashing down on her and she’s trying her absolutely best to keep trying even if there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. As time goes on for her, the tunnel seems to be getting longer, darker, colder and no one is coming to help her way out… So show her that light at the end of the tunnel. Show her there still is hope. She is my very best friend, and I can’t stand to see her suffer anymore and not be able to help her in anyway possible. Please, read this story. Share this story. Even donate if it is possible. It would be beyond words grateful if you would do any of those three. Thank you. <3
I’d like to add that I do NOT condone gofundme’s recent activity allowing racist campaigns to continue on their site. However this is currently my only option.
Okay so I’ve never actually met you but I love you so much and I’ll do everything I can to help you 💕😘
You’re wonderful and I love you!
I wish I could help you! But I’m just as broke, so I will share this every single time I see it. Stay strong lovely. You’ll get through this <3 Sorry I can’t help!
Thank you! It’s really the thought that counts. I appreciate it so much!
Hey! A few of us in Black Tumblr are trying to start a #IWillNotSmile tag on August 26 against street harassment - targeting the demand of women to look happy/cute for the benefit of men, and we would like to ask our sisters in the Tumblr community to join in on the convo. There is a post on my blog with more info, would you be willing to reblog it to spread the word?
