Fanboys are upset that The BBC cast a woman to play The Doctor. I wish I could say I was surprised.

Yeah, the crybabies complaining about mean old women stealing shows from men are as predictable as they are disappointing.

In another not-a-surprise GG and Trump fans are among the complainers. Because of course they are.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Let's not forget that the same people got mad that a black man dare play a storm-trooper. Never mind that the show explained it by saying the First Order moved away from clones, opting to impress children into its army. But, fragile white-boys will cry about anything.*

*And before Lana cries, I'm using fragile as a qualifier for white boys, in contrast to confident white boys who are not threatened by women and black people.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

Know what's pretty great? My twitter is blowing up with support for the new Doctor. Goes to show that people who actually watch the show like this change. They're mostly disappointed that the Doctor is not also a ginger or a POC, though.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

That could pretty much just mean that you follow liberal Twitter people, honestly. Though all of my Doctor Who-fan friends seem to enjoy the idea too, even the conservative-leaning ones.
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

Quote
After severe backlash from male fans following the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the first-ever female Doctor, the producers of Doctor Who have announced that every single Dalek in the new series will have a penis and testicles visible at all times.

“We thought people would be excited by Jodie because she’s such an accomplished actress,” said showrunner Chris Chibnall. “But the fans have spoken: good sci-fi needs dicks and balls, apparently.”

Daleks are one of the main villains of the Doctor Who universe, first appearing in 1963. While the show creators never explicitly stated the sex of the small mutants, the addition of male anatomy to their heads has been met with excitement.

“I was angry because a female Doctor made no sense. I mean, how am I supposed to connect emotionally to a non-male character?” said longtime fan Curtis Mayflower. “But with this change, the belligerent creatures who display inexplicable fear of and rage towards the Doctor are now strangely relatable.”

However, others see in these penises another push for unnecessary inclusiveness.

“Oh sure, you think the show runners are standing up for tradition,” said longtime fan Kyle Marcus. “But one of those Daleks had a black penis. We all know Daleks are white. It’s canon!”

This is reminiscent of male outrage over Ghostbusters, which lead to the release of an alternate cut where Slimer is fully erect for the entire film.
