The producers of Doctor Who have decided that the next iteration of the titular character will be… oh, what is the PC term… a person with a vagina. This is pretty much what happened after the announcement.
Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG, Dr. Who is going to be a woman. This is the most awesomest thing in the history of scifi TV.”
Me (and others): “Whatever, it really depends on the quality of the writing and how they develop the character. If it becomes a boring social justice lecture, I’m not interested.”
Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG! Your male fragility can’t handle a woman in the role of The Doctor! It’s driving you crazy! We drink your tears, penis-bearer!”
One thing is for sure; if the audience for the show declines, the producers can now blame their losses on misogyny. And probably Russian meddling.
What a stupid time to be alive.
