gettyimages-56943420.jpgI don't watch Dr. Who but I do get exposure to it on the periphery due to my browsing of /tv/. No, it's not surprising. Well, maybe if you were expecting a black guy it was. The way the pc culture is today it was obvious this was going to happen. Same with James Bond and comic book characters and whatever other example you can think of.

Personally, I don't really care. Again, because I don't watch these sorts of shows since only manchildren and the "I LOVE SCIENCE" types watch them but it is funny to me to see what the repercussions will be like. After all, this isn't organic but rather a blatant move to make the show more PC adherant. Same thing happened with the all female ghost busters. Nothing but virtue signaling and the "in your face" attitude the hubris of which led to the abysmal reception. At least make something somewhat original, you know? For example, Get Out was a fantastic twist on the horror genre that really made whitey, especially white liberals, uncomfortable which was funny.

Ultimately, I question how long this can continue. I think something that people underestimate the most is that minorities themselves don't really like seeing other minorities, i.e. chinese don't like blacks at all (see the star wars movie posters), black women are tired of white women, etc. The other thing that I find blatantly insulting is how whenever a minority character is cast they're usually some fuck ugly person that lowers the perception of said minority character. It's as though they're deliberately marketing minorities as less attractive. Again all you have to look for at a recent casting ex. like black hermione. I'm not against it, but goddamn did you have to choose such an ugly woman?

Mate, this was building up long before political correctness was even a term. Tom Baker might have been the one to plant the idea into people's heads when during an interview when asked what the Fifth Doctor was going to be like he asks, "What makes you think it's a he?" Steven Moffat when writing the comedy spoof Curse of the Fatal Death also played around with this idea when, lol, the Thirteenth Doctor was a woman portrayed by Joanna Lumley. The Tenth Doctor asked if he were a girl upon regeneration. The Eleventh Doctor confirmed that Time Lords can change genders with The Corsair. Now the Master regenerating into Missy more or less confirms it. Last season or two, there was a direct regeneration scene where a male regenerated into a female. This was building up for some time. Volcano Day has arrived, now it's time to witness the autistic meltdown.

First of all, don't ever call me mate again. I'm not some aussie trash. Secondly, I just said that I am not a watcher of Dr. Who. I was referencing the current climate and not some season from the 90's or whatever. The world has changed a lot and even if the dude said the next dr would be a female I doubt he said it with any note of sincerity since it could've been something to stir up drama. Regardless, your example doesn't take into account that had he made the dr a woman back then it probably would've been a more honest implementation than making her a dr now when the pc police wants everyone to conform.

I cited other examples in that post too. Not just Tom Baker's comment which would have most likely just was a tongue in cheek response.
