BBC Flawlessly Responds To The Sexist Snowflakes Upset Over Doctor Who"s First Woman Time Lord!

Keep weeping, snowflakes — the BBC don't give a fuck! On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the [...] Keep weeping, snowflakes -- the BBC don't give a fuck! On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the network for ruining the sanctity of the sci-fi show. Such complaints questioned how a time traveling alien with otherworldly, regenerative abilities could possibly go from Peter Capaldi to the Broadchurch actress. QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones? Time-bending, sure. Age-bending, no problem-o. But GENDER-bending? How can one possibly wrap their heads around such a perplexing, doctor-ruining character trait like that? Thankfully, BBC issued a response to the haters, delicately explaining it has long been established in the show that Time Lords are able to switch gender -- and those who aren't on board can sit on a sonic screwdriver! The BBC Complaints page stated how "viewers contacted us unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor," before responding: "Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme. The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender. As the Controller of BBC Drama has said, Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor. We hope viewers will enjoy what we have in store for the continuation of the story." Translation: go fly a Tardis and time-warp the fuck over it! Whittaker will make her debut after Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffatt's departure following the Christmas special -- and WE. CANNOT. WAIT! [Image via BBC.].....»»

I’m only really a spokesperson for my journey and then take my platform, which I have, and see if I can make a difference in the world,” the 67-year-old reality star expressed. As a “person of faith,” Caitlyn said she had to look back on her life and say, “Why did God do this to me? Kris and I, we had gone our separate directions, not because of gender issues but because of other things, and there I was back in Malibu all by myself, and so I slowly went through, told all my children, because it had been just hammered all over the media. In fact, guys like you making some jokes…” “We didn’t know what was happening,” Jimmy replied. “Sorry about that, by the way.” “Oh, now he’s going to apologize,” Caitlyn joked while accepting Jimmy‘s apology. “I don’t know if you saw when I was on Jimmy Fallon.
