Shame on you and good luck to you

Charming headline:

Doctor Who’s first 60th anniversary special is a Terf’s worst nightmare

Yay let’s throw stones at radical feminists some more.

Doctor Who not only has a trans character, but an entire trans storyline – and not even that, but trans joy.

What’s trans joy? Misery that identifies as joy?

Rose as a character isn’t simply put there to make up a quota, Doctor Who thought her identity is worth celebrating – her being who she is literally saves the world.

Sounds like a plausible plotline.

Doctor Who has always had a massive queer fanbase; it has always been progressive, and showrunner Russell already had a quote ready for the people who predictably will have an issue over this.

Speaking at a press event ahead of the episode airing, he said he knew  there were some people ‘full of absolute hate, and venom, and destruction and violence who would like to see that sort of thing wiped off the screen entirely.’

Oh yes, that’s us, full of absolute hate, and venom, and destruction and violence. We’ve killed several billion people already.

And to anyone who held those ideals, he declared: ‘Shame on you and good luck to you in your lonely lives.’

What ideals? Hate, and venom, and destruction and violence? No other values are mentioned; that sentence follows immediately on the string of insults. Also “Shame on you and good luck to you” is a bit silly. Make up your mind.

In short it’s a deeply stupid piece; I’d even call it trashy. Trans ideology is undeniably popular but it doesn’t seem to attract the sharpest minds.
