Tragic role model deficit strikes boys

Well that takes the biscuit.

A former Doctor Who actor has hit out at the BBC’s decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the role, saying that the decision meant there is “a loss of a role model for boys”.

Peter Davison said she is a “terrific actress” but  that he has doubts that she is right for the role.

He said before an appearance at  at Comic-Con in San Diego: “If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for.”

I see – so it’s only boys who should have role models. Girls should just be passive blobs, with no goals, no choices, no aspirations, nothing to do or achieve – they just wait to grow up and be taken over by whatever role-model-enhanced boy decides he needs his own passive blob to fuck.

Boys need role models because they’re real people, who have to grow up and do something in the world. Girls don’t, because they’re not real people, they’re just mindless lumps of flesh.

Also, it’s not enough that boys have had and still have thousands of role models already. No, it’s urgent that all role models should remain role models for boys and boys only forever, while girls do without, because after all, what hope is there for a girl?

It’s not enough that boys have had the Doctor as a role model since 1963, no, that’s not enough, they have to go on having him forever, while girls stand on the sidelines where they belong.

Stay in your lane, girls.
