Unlucky in love? Introducing… Romantic Time Traveller Boyfriend XD Plus - the ultimate Doctor Who Dating Simulator! Why struggle being the person no one want…
perhaps I ought to find this mildly offensive but I can’t help it, I love this so much. WHY ISN’T IT REAL D; T__T
(Now I am extra-glad Darcy always made us watch old Dr. Who so I can fully appreciate Vegetable Boyfriend, Maths Child, and and Tasty Gelatin Infants)
I’ve always been partial to Sad Eyeballs Thin Boyfriend (no surprise), but if last week’s season premiere was any indication, Super Sweary Handsome Angry Not Your Boyfriend might actually be pretty awesome. Also, bonus points for not sucking up to Clara (but UGH CLARA,UGH. Moffat why do you do this to women, seriously Clara is so gross and it’s 90% your fault (10% her mannerisms are just irksome). Do you really need to make an entire episode where you condescend to marysue Clara into the role of the female viewer and assume that we are all in denial that the doctor isn’t young anymore? Fuck off. All you need to do is convince us that he has something new to bring to the role.)
I want to say the show will get better for me when Clara leaves, but then Moffat will just replace her with some other equally Moffat-ized female character so I don’t know if there is any point in wishing she would go away; If Moffat could somehow just hire someone else to write the women I would probably start liking the show a lot better again. Honestly, if we’re stuck with Moffat I’d be happier if he just gave up and started writing male companions; not for the slash potential, just so that I don’t have to put up with his goddawful female characters.
(I probably don’t have to say this, but if there were some magical way to pair up Stephen Moffat’s plots with Russel T. Davies women, it would probably make the best version of the show. Amy/River/Clara *all* annoy me terribly, but Martha and Donna were just awesome <3. On the other hand, Moffat is pretty good at plots and I don’t really miss RTD’s hot-mess-trainwreck season finale plots, except maybe for the lulz).
…okay I’m done complaining :P
We tell our women “get into science, get into math, get into the pipeline.” Who wants to be in a pipeline full of acid?

I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.
The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.
so my sister works in STEM & if you talked to her for like 5 minutes she can tell you how true this is. it’s fucking poisonous
