There's something pretty funny about a whiney sack of soggy potatoes talking about Bond and masculinity. Of course he's also a lesson in white asshole men getting 1001 chances considering the number of shows he's hosted and left or been canned on. He's basically hated wherever he goes and kinda slimes his way into and out of media jobs.

I found this which made me laugh,

Good god I could only watch 2 mins of that shite.

I like the new Doctor. Sou and I have started watching it again this season and we've been enjoying it.

I probably haven't seen more than about half a dozen episodes since the David Tennant run, so I can't say how good Matt Smith or Peter Capaldi were, but I like Jodie Whittaker so far.

What is the name for that illustration style where people are drawn with those giant foreheads and big wet eyes, and why does that guy have so many of them?

My first The Doctor was David Tennant, so all others are measured against his run. A first season with a new The Doctor is always going to feel weird, for whatever reason. And it goes especially when it's coupled with a new show runner and new writers. Their first few episodes will feel like a little too much, then they'll get into the groove of whatever story (-ies) they want to tell and the character of this The Doctor will be formed. I'm p much over man-babbies crying about whatever man-babbies cry about nowadays. Let them wail and gnash their teeth and rend their grommets.

I never got into doctor who, mostly it wasn't on at the right times, so I'm seeing all of this from an outside prespective and um, have Doctor Who fans ever really watched Doctor Who? It's not like it's a serious and realistic show to begin with. I kinda think some people have some hardcore thick nostalgia glasses on if a woman doctor was when the show jumped the shark and couldn't be taken seriously anymore.

Something I might get lambasted for in the wrong audience: I wasn't that big a fan of Capaldi. Now, I think he's a fine actor and actually played the part well. But, I didn't much care for the stories his The Doctor was in. Not so much in an 'OMGOZOR DOGTOR WHO IS RUINT FOREVER' just "that was okay." But I find myself on the "that was just okay," opinion a lot lately, even things I might usually enjoy more.

So I saw this:

Nothing to add on either story; I'm interested in the cringy use of 'females' here.

I've read other posts on the use of homosexual versus gay, and have it on good authority that the term homosexual has its roots in scientific denotation and a history of use in a negative sense, especially homosexuality as a disorder. She prefers to be referred to as 'gay'. That's okay, might as well get used to it.

Star Trek understood in the 80s that using the term 'female' can be cringy as hell. It's a scientific term, but unlike homosexual, it doesn't strike me as rooted in some derogatory baggage.

So I'll do the term swapping game.

Quote:

Doesn't feel weird.

Quote:
by a panel of 5 man judges.
huh, changes the context to 'judges of men'.

Quote:
by a panel of 5 woman judges.
I've heard before that this is a preferable use, but does this not also change the context?

Or maybe it's the context of "Oh hey look it's totally legit now, these two dudes are found innocent by five women! Totally legit!"

I've no conclusion.

I think female is fine as an adjective as long as it's relevant. It's using it as a noun* that's weird, especially when it's uneven, like "three men and two females."

* Unless it's an umbrella term for 'girls and women' like you'd use 'male' for 'boys and men.'
