Most of you will be tuning in this weekend to watch the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who.
I won’t be among them. I thought on it and not even the cheeky hawtness of one David Tennant can sway me.
The Doctor broke my heart for reasons I explain below.
Am I aboverred? No. Well, maybe a little. But I’ve moved on. And I’m better for it.
A gent by the name of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. once said, “Unless man is committed to the belief that all mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality.”
While on the Syfy webpage (yeah that was my first mistake), I was reading some of the comments (yeah I know, that was my second mistake) regarding Doctor Who. One of the commenters argued that they didn’t approve of Russell T. Davies’s inclusion of LGBTQs in the Whoverse and accused him of pushing a gay agenda on the public and wearing his homosexuality on his sleeve.
These are claims I’ve heard too often from privileged cis-gendered heterosexuals. Anytime an LGBTQ dares be open and demand equal treatment and opportunity, they’re pushing an evil agenda.
The LGBTQs are taking over – oh noes!
