So this started as a reply to the above but got pretty…side-tracked since I was only going to reply about the women and then drop it but whoops. So I guess it’s getting its own post? I dunno sorry everyone.
Ah, oh boy. I really do apologise so much to my followers because Moffat’s sexism is one of my buttons and after last episode? I give up. Apathy makes this easier to tear down. We’ll start with the list and go down it and just wander through the fields of sexism from there.
And read more apparently hates me. Sigh. Hopefully it works.
Please, please note. I actually like some of these characters. And hell, I like some of the stories. But if we’re talking about what Moffat writes and what he does with the characters, the stories he writes for women and how he handles them, then just focusing on the positives is going to look, well, overwhelmingly positive.
So I’ll do a counter list of these characters and some points - rather crucial points for understanding Moffat’s bullshit - that emphasis the problematic.
