    Isn´t that a different group? Also the issue in regard to Dr. Who would be due to how Ghostbusters was treated, they feel there is too much a risc the show will fail.

    I loved River Song. Hopefully, it’s a similar character.

    It’s all part of the grieving process for Whovians. Gnash and wail at the loss of a great talent; Angry and bitter at the new choice; Snipe and gripe at the first few episodes; Grow in respect as the show continues; Declare them the GREATEST Doctor when they want to leave after a number of years. Rinse and repeat.

    Jodie Whittaker is the first actress to be cast in the role of The Doctor. Incoming producer Chris Chibnall said that he always wanted a woman for the part and that Whittaker was their first choice. But she wasn’t the first to be considered for the role. Dawn French, Joanna Lumley, and Frances de la Tour were suggested by Sydney Newman in 1986 for the role, but were dismissed by the BBC. The role of the Seventh Doctor went to Sylvester McCoy. Producer Jane Tranter also considered casting Judi Dench as the Ninth Doctor. The role of the Ninth Doctor went to Christopher Eccleston.

    This is the new reason to be offended for conservative snowflakes. They’re also upset that the girl playing the Little Mermaid is Asian. Who does anyone care about stuff like that?

    I see a lot of people talking about outraged people. I don’t see many actually objecting.

    Stantis thinks women can’t graduate from medical school? I know lots of women doctors.

    Sexism is also alive and well, if you aren’t male you are inferior. Works the same way as racism does. And just as pernicious.

    Objections are coming from the idiots involved in the men’s rights, Gamergate, Rabid Puppies, Alt-Right movements. You can ask conservative fantasy writer John C Wright which group he is responding as.
