Fandom should be no safe haven for bigots.

fandomsandfeminism:

Bigots should always been uncomfortable in fandom space.

Bigots should feel threatened in fandom space.

Bigots should be rubbed the wrong way, turned off, and annoyed by the diversity within canon and celebration of diversity within fandom. 

Bigots should be shunned from fandom unilaterally. 

Bigots should never be tolerated in our spaces.

On that we can agree. If the Doctor has anything resembling a human sexuality, it's probably pan, like Jack. How could he differentiate attraction based on 2 strictly human sexual divisions? It just doesn't seem likely. And yes, Moffat is a jerk of the highest order. Whenever he opens his mouth, millions of flies are attracted to the shit that pours out, if you'll forgive my colorful metaphor. I pray nightly that he'll be fired and I can get my favorite show back.

Exactly. I mean, the Doctor travels the universe, and he’s stricly only allowed to be attracted to one specific gender of humans? I mean, on Gallifrey (if it had been written in modern times by a writer that likes diversity), they may not have even followed any specific gender binary (like how lots of people see the world, Moffat included, probably), and they probably wouldn’t have strict sexuality like the human race does. Or some other race out there somewhere may not have, and I don’t see the Doctor being that strict on deciding ‘hmm, this species looks like my race on the outside, better only be attracted to the females!’

I mean, there is no canon information on sex with the Time Lords, is there? I’m not sure, but I’m just assuming since, as it has been pointed out, that type of stuff was taboo on the BBC until recently, and Davies never wrote the Time Lords since they were dead (but then no because Moffat), so why be so close-minded to think that all other races in the universe follow strict gender binary systems? And they’d only be attracted to the “opposite” sex of other races?

Nine did sorta flirt with Captain Jack in one of Moffat’s episodes, even (well, returned Jack’s flirting), and Jack and Nine also kissed.

Then Eleven’s only allowed to kiss women (even though he didn’t seem to want to kiss most of them, and Rory doesn’t count because that was just out of excitement), and Twelve’s not allowed to even think about that because he looks old (but that’s a nice change from Eleven snogging all his companions at least once, I remember hearing that the BBC execs wanted it to change from the Doctor being a ‘sexual being’, but I can’t find any sources about that).

And yes, please fire Moffat. Apparently he’s already thought up the ending of Season Nine, though, so he might be here a while.

*grumbles*

Well, Ten’s interaction with the Master can also be interpreted as love.

you are NOT obligated to have sex if you don’t want to, regardless of the relationship.

This aspect of consent is often ignored or downplayed. However, it is important to reinstate the concept that being in love or in a long-term relationship does not mean that you are obligated to have sex with your partner. Consent should be given in each new physical or sexual experience. Your body is still your body when you are in a relationship.

Warning bi community. Block parry26 on okcupid. He’s biphobic and will harass you

ew, what an arsehole

Can someone explain what he’s saying? I read this expecting to be offended and I ended up confused.

In short: He doesn’t seem to be okay with same-gender marriage, likes bisexuals because they are “open-minded” (he means sexually), asks “why would a bi woman want to be with a woman when she finds a husband?” and continues to asks for the woman’s skype details and message her when she says she’s not interested in him romantically.

I’m officially putting people who say they don’t “believe” in bisexuality on the same plane as people who don’t “believe” in evolution or the benefits of vaccination.
