E3 - Impressions
E3 was great! Just look at all brand new games they give us!
Just look at protagonists! Isn’t it great, how modern technologies let developers create so many different characters?! Just look at divercity of facial hair! Or how many hues of dark brown used for their hair!
I wonder what the world is like when virtually everywhere is a safe space for you
and you don’t have to block people and leave websites and sever friendships and avoid certain activities and drop classes and switch deans and ignore comment sections
just to go through the day without too many people trying to plant the idea in your head that you are less than human
What is it?: A day for Ally allies to support the trials of Allies, who for too long have struggled to meet the basic standards of human decency.
When is it: Apparently every day.
What can I do?: We’re still working on getting the bracelets, but until then you can plaster this flag onto every available space:
In honor of Ally Day, we are also holding an Ally Convention. Highlighted activities and workshops include:
- Oppression by Association: How to re-center the discussion of oppression on yourself
- Cookies 101: How to beg
- Bechdel Test: How dating, befriending, or otherwise associating with oppressed individual renders you incapable of furthering oppressive ideology.
- Speakerphone: How to spread awareness by speaking over the oppressed. [Guest appearance by Tim Wise]
- This Land is Your Land, But Mostly My Land: How to insert yourself into spaces made for and by individuals with marginalized identities.
- Ally Pride Parade: A celebration of the true you. [Musical appearance by Lady Gaga]
More information will be distributed as the event date approaches. Until then, remember… ally behind your allies.
Bringing this back because shit, allies actually want it…
what if the doctor’s next companion is lesbian
like before she meets the doctor like before the series or in the beginning of the pilot she comes out to her parents who are all unsupportive and they kick her out and so she’s looking for someplace to stay when she runs into the doctor then they end up saving the earth and she ends up going into space with him and then at the end of the series the doctor and her confront her parents and there are daleks or something cool like that
i think it could work
(or someone from the past could travel with him and then realise they were gay after they had been enlightened)

These are the tweets from Moffat that started the whole debacle surrounding sexualities. If you just look quickly, and isn’t very familiar with LGBTQ rights, this looks like a pretty cool thing. Because the Doctor doesn’t care about sexualities, and that’s… good. But this isn’t what this implies. He claims that The Doctor doesn’t see sexuality, and doesn’t understand it, and needs to have it explained to him. This is problematic because The Doctor has encountered a pretty decent number of non straight characters over the years. He was the one who explained Jack’s sexuality to Rose, he was aware of when Shakespeare was hitting on him and he knew and was aware of that present day academics are discussing Shakespeare’s sexuality.
The Doctor: Come on! We can have a good flirt later!
William Shakespeare: Is that a promise, Doctor?
The Doctor: Oh, fifty-seven academics just punched the air. Come on.
He knows of Human sexuality, knows how it works, and knows about the discussions surrounding it. If anything, my guess would be that he has a better grasp of it than we do, since he’s been following humanity for such a long time he ought to have a good understanding of the history of oppression and the problems that present day queer people still are faced with. Why doesn’t he already have a universal marriage setting on that screwdriver of his?
