Personally I think heterosexuals are faking it for attention. They said Adam and Eve not Adam or Eve.

Might I just point out that Mercutio got stabbed in the gut and, instead of seeking medical help, stood up and made a pun about it then died.

What about queer actors playing straight characters?

floozys:

straight representation doesn’t matter in the slightest, a porcupine could play a straight actor and it would not matter in the slightest

So my friend came into school one day wearing a dress that had straps and the vice principal came up to her and said “You need to either change or cover your shoulders up because it’ll distract the boys” to which she replied “Well I find boys faces distracting, do they have to cover them up?” and the vice principal said “Maybe you should focus in class more.”

If that doesn’t tell you that things are messed up, then I don’t know what does.

You know what’s absolutely hilarious?

How Rose Tyler’s life completely revolved around the Doctor (seriously, the number of times she says ‘I’m not leaving him’ concerns me), so much that she would push away anyone who so much as questioned her choices (including her own mother) and choose to remain on a dying planet simply because she can’t accept that he might be dead (which goes way beyond grief) and this is accepted by most people.

But Amy, River, and Clara have each their own vested relationship with the Doctor while keeping hold of a life separate from him, and not only do people ignore that they all have a completely separate life from him, but it’s also seen as being bad.

And by absolutely hilarious, I mean horribly hypocritical.     

I agree that Amy and Clara had their own life away from the Doctor, but River became an archaeologist just to find the Doctor, she quite literally said that she lives for the days when she sees him, she goes to prison for him because of a crime that she didn’t even commit and you’re trying to tell me that she has a life separate from him?

No. She kinda really doesn’t.

But she does. Yeah, she loves being with him, but she isn’t always with him. In prison she would break out on her own and have her own adventures, and same after she got out of prison and became a professor (which, by the way, she would have no reason to do for the Doctor). And she didn’t become an archaeologist just to find him. She becomes one to undo the Silence’s brainwashing and come to her own conclusions on many things including him. She is not the same as Rose’s obsessive co-dependency.

Anyone wanna back me up on this?

She quite literally says that she wants to study archaeology to “find a good man”, meaning that she studies archaeology to find the Doctor, so you can miss me with the undo the Silence’s brainwashing thing. 

I cannot remember a single hint that she breaks out of prison on her own. The Doctor answers Dorium’s question about whether she spends all her days in prison by saying "Her days, yes. Her nights? Well, that’s between her and me, eh?" implying that either a) he gets her out of prison in the night or b) she only breaks out to spend her nights with him. But if you’re able to show me some textual proof of your claim, I’m all ears.

She is even more obsessed than Rose, which is partly due to her being brain washed, but she’s still badly written, underdeveloped and bland.

And that isn’t even touching on the many abusive elements of the relationship between the Doctor and River, something that is completely lacking in the relationship between the Doctor and Rose.

"And she didn’t become an archaeologist just to find him. She becomes one to undo the Silence’s brainwashing and come to her own conclusions on many things including him."

I don’t think I can get more clear than that. Yes, finding out who the Doctor is without the influence of the Silence’s brainwashing or Amy’s hero stories is a major part of her decision to go into that field. But it’s obviously not the only reason she went in or else she would’ve left it when she knew the Doctor fully. And she wouldn’t go on to teach in that field if she didn’t have a vested interest in it.

And yes, there is a time that shows her having broken out of prison on her own. In the minisode Last Night.

Doctor: River Song could walk in and out of the prison like the walls aren’t there.

River: I’m River Song.

Doctor: Then you’ll be fine.

Doctor: Get up! What are you doing? Who’s shooting at you?

River: Oh, just a few Sontarans. Chased me halfway across the galaxy. I probably shouldn’t have asked them if they were on a hen night.

Doctor: River, you can’t do things like that.

River: Or what? You’ve already had me banged up in jail for five years.

So using context clues (you know, that thing we were taught in English class to use?), we can say that this is pretty much a regular occurrence. The reason why we don’t see more of this is because this show is Doctor Who, not River’s Prison Breakout Adventures.

Yes, a large portion of her life does more-or-less revolve around the Doctor, she is his wife and trained assassin after all, kind of hard to avoid having him become a focal point in her life. Amy’s did too. She said as much in the Power of Three, “There was a time-there were years-when I couldn’t live without you.” And there is nothing wrong with this. 

But saying that they don’t have lives outside the Doctor is ignoring half of their character and major points in their development.

(And abusive relationship? Whose ass did you pull that from?) 

Nah, I disagree. River quite literally states that she will use archaeology to find the Doctor - I doubt she has any vested interest in it because she was brainwashed into being obsessed with the Doctor, meaning she was unable to develop her own interests. It’s quite possible that she became interested in it while studying it but there is like zero evidence that she was interested in it before and started studying it for any reason but finding/stalking the Doctor.

I haven’t watched Last Night because I have zero interest in minisodes about River Song, so I didn’t know that.

But since we’re talking about context here - and to get back to your original post a bit - every time Rose does something extreme to stay with the Doctor, like stay on an empty, dying planet or in a parallel universe away from her mother or attack her mother for criticizing her, the narrative frames it as bad. In The Satan Pit she is sedated and brought onto a leaving space ship against her will; in Army of Ghosts, the conversation ends with Jackie’s legit criticism of Rose traveling with the Doctor forever; in Doomsday, her refusal to go with her mother to the safety of Pete’s World almost gets her killed. Her refusal to leave the Doctor mostly results in not good stuff happening and is never shown to be a good thing - something that can’t be said about River’s relationship with the Doctor. I mean, her going to prison for a crime she didn’t commit just so he can remain hidden is never ever at all painted in any negative light, instead it’s romanticized as this awesome sacrifice of a loving wife.

Also, River has zero character development that doesn’t revolve around the Doctor. And I don’t mean she has zero character development that isn’t caused by the Doctor, I mean she doesn’t have character development that isn’t about her in relation to the Doctor - she goes from obsessed with killing him to obsessed with him to obsessively in love with him to dying for him. 

(And yeah, their relationship is abusive - they both have no real choice in it [River tells the Tenth Doctor that he will have a relationship with her, so he has to to not fuck up the time line, and he later on does the same thing to an earlier version of her.], they continuously scream at each other because they think the other is in an embarrassing or insulting way, the Doctor states multiple times that he doesn’t trust her and in The Angels of Manhattan, he yells at her and then leaves her alone to break her own wrist by quite literally running out of the room in a “LALALA I DON’T CARE FIGURE IT OUT ON YOUR OWN!”. I mean, she is so afraid of his reaction that she hides her broken wrist and every other damage he does to her from him. You can disagree about whether or not it constitutes [emotional] abuse, but it is several worlds away from being a healthy relationship.)
