“So I sent an email to 7 of my friends, including Sarah, and I said, ‘Does anyone want to go see ‘Lost in Translation’ tonight?’ and then I sent an email immediately afterwards to the 6 of my friends who weren’t Sarah and I said, ‘NOT YOU.’”—John Green, on how he asked out his wife for the first time. (via ancient-amateur)
By calling him a misogynist for making women mothers is paramount to YOU saying that a woman can’t be anything else once she is a mother. Women will always bear children and to do so does not make her a weak women, it does not make her subordinate to the man in her life (should there be one). It says nothing about her except that she is a mother. Moffat never treated Amy as if she could be nothing more than become a mother, or that she was was worth nothing without being one.
Furthermore, addressing issues regarding her need to be saved… let me ask you this, how many times has River need to save the Doctor, or Amy saved the Doctor, or done things to protect him or help him…
Addressing issues about Amy’s life revolving around the Doctor… I don’t even understand why this is an issue. Have you seen this show? It matters not that Amy is a woman, the Doctor changes everyones lives he meets and the lives of all his companions revolve around him during their tenure in the TARDIS, man or woman or alien, for that matter. YOU are placing emphasis on gender, where no emphasis is intended. And THAT is the main flaw of this whole “misogynistic” argument.
You, I could kiss, I regretted ever posting this quote until I just saw this, because everything you just said is completely true.
Amy is so much more than just a mother. And everyone the Doctor meets lives revolve around him at one point or another, I mean Sarah Jane waited decades for him to return to her! Their lives all revolve around him at points in their lives. Jack waited what? A century or two for him?
Amy and River having lives that revolve around him are nothing, because even though they do in a way - they are both very very independent.
Paris Hilton hates Nicole Richie. Lex Luther hates Superman. Garfield hates Mondays.But none these even rates against the insurmountable hate, people have for you.
I mean, you’re pretty damn clever and you know it. You love to flaunt your potential. Heard the word “arrogant” lately? How about “jerk?” Or perhaps they only say that behind your back.
That’s right. I know I can say this cause you’re not going to cry. You’re not exactly the most emotional person. You’d rather spend time with your theoretical questions and abstract theories than with other people.
Ever been kissed? Ever even been on a date? Trust me, your inflated ego is a complete turnoff with the opposite sex and I am telling you, you’re not that great with relationships as it is. You’re never going to be a dude or chick magnet, purely because you’re more concerned with yourself than others. Meh. They all hate you already anyway.
How about this- “stubborn?” Hrm? Heard that lately? All those facts which don’t fit your theories must just be wrong, right? I mean, really, the vast amounts of time you spend with your head in the clouds…you’re just plain strange.
So, you want to make the world a better place? Too bad it’s never gonna happen.
Of all the types, you have to be one of the hardest to find fault in. You have a selfless and caring nature. You’re a good listener and someone who wants to avoid conflict. You genuinely desire to do good.
Of course, these all add up to an incredibly overpowered conscience which makes you feel guilty and responsible when anything goes wrong. Of course, it MUST be your fault EVERYTIME.
Though you’re constantly on a mission to find the truth, you have no use for hard facts and logic, which is a source of great confusion for those of us with brains. Despite this, in a losing argument, you’re not above spouting off inaccurate fact after fact in an effort to protect your precious values.
You’re most probably a perfectionist, which in this case, is a bad thing. Any group work is destined to fail because of your incredibly high standards.
Disregard what I said before. You’re just easy to find fault in as everyone else!
Luckily, you’re generally very hard on yourself, meaning I don’t need to waste my precious time insulting you. Instead, just find all your own faults and insult yourself.
Well…for me that was unsatisfyingly inaccurate…mostly because I should be INTP, but the description for that didn’t really fit either. Not selfless. I do avoid conflict, though. I champion hard facts and logic, and I’ve given up on perfectionism a loooong time ago.
