so i guess my former opinion has been refined into, proposing a version of the doctor who's always been female is cool and would probably have made a fun story (though i still cosplayed a female doctor for the sole reason "hips too large", not as some sort of ~*statement*~), deciding to introduce a female incarnation after over 50 years is shitty pandering that needs to fail as quickly as possible.

also, the sort of new viewers that will attracted by a decision like this and weren't attracted by anything else are not the sort of new viewers you want.

and long story short, the only good course of events is one in which the 2018 christmas special also features a regeneration.

unless the last episode of the upcoming season does, but let's not be too optimistic.

and no i don't ~*feel bad*~ for this actress any more than i feel bad about the ghostbusters actresses. they all accepted their respective roles knowing fully well what the reactions might look like. they really consented to being exposed to this kind of thing the moment they decided to become professional actors.

(though i'm kind of impressed by how thoroughly everyone involved with the ghostbusters fiasco had deluded themselves into believing that they were just dealing with a small loud handful of ~*misogynists*~ and would definitely be able to shame them into hiding)
