Dead on midnight every night without fail I bathe in the tears of the men I have mortally offended in the past 24 hours, and absorb the remaining tattered fragments of their fragile egos, thus replenishing myself and storing energy for the following day of battling creepy men on the internet.

"Hate only breeds more hate" yeah so maybe if privileged groups didn’t treat marginalized groups like we were less then human they wouldn’t hate them.

People who say “I fucking hate cishet people”.

First of all: your parents.
Second of all: good luck getting hired anywhere with a hateful attitude towards an entire group of people.

because i have nooooo reason to hate my parents lmao u got me there

its funny because getting hired as a queer person is super hard and its all cishet peoples fault

And of course, like OP says, only cis straight couples are able to have children. Adoption, bisexuals, and transgender people are just urban myths!

Anonymous asked: Which doctor do you find the cutest?

If you mean cute-sweet, I’d say 2, 5 or 10. If you mean cute-attractive, I’d say 10. But Paul McGann’s become pretty hot as well.

Anonymous asked: wait wait wait I'm disabled and I dislike Moffat but I don't see how Asylum of the Daleks is ableist? If it's the whole thing about the Daleks locking up "disabled" Daleks in an asylum, then I agree that that is bad, but you have to remember the Daleks are literally based on the Nazis - they're not exactly going to look after the asylum Daleks with social programs and benefits schemes, are they?

It’s basically the whole presentation of mental illness, what with an asylum being an institution for mentally ill people. It’s quite difficult to explain, here are loads of well written metas on the subject that you might be able to find if you look around (and also this post). If anybody else can explain it better or has more info, feel free to chime in x

Steven Moffat on writing Lynda Day from Press Gang:
"Because I’ve never been a 17 year old girl, it’s rather interesting to think like one, or rather to force yourself to consider the world from that perspective. And it actually started to make me angry. I’d never really thought about it before, but you know, when I’d consider the world from the viewpoint of this dynamic, highly intelligent, highly talented 17 year old girl, and think what’s going to happen to her, think about how much harder it’s going to be for her than it would be if she’s been a boy, it made me SO angry.” 
what a sexist!!! why didn’t they put that on the list?!!cause it doesn’t fit in their small mind. 

does this quote cancel out other quotes though? off the top of my head i know he joked about nancy being a ‘slut’ on the DVD commentary for ‘the doctor dances’ — so there’s one shitty sexist joke vs one good quote, do they cancel each other out?
i haven’t read the post in question in your screencap but since it calls itself a list of sexist things moffat has said, of course they’re not including things that moffat said that aren’t sexist, just like i wouldn’t expect it to include sexist things other people have said. this post is not pretending to be a compendium of every quote moffat has ever said. it’s cool that he said this one thing about a show like 20 years ago or whatever, but that doesn’t change the shitty things he HAS said, nor does it necessarily change what people feel about his writing. someone can say something good one day and then something shitty the next day, i’m not necessarily obligated to overlook the shitty thing they did because they did something nice the day before.

Anonymous asked: How is Moffat ableist?

I’d suggest looking at Stfu-Moffat’s ‘ableism’ tag for more info.

Wow, suddenly all the sexist stuff he’s said and written just became irrelevant! And I don’t appreciate being told I have a small mind.
