Doctor Who kiss...
So apparently there are some mouth breathing bigots out there quite distressed about the life saving kiss between Vashtra and Jenny last night on the season premiere, Deep Breath.
According to Pink News and other online media, people have an issue with the kiss.
These “reviewers” and others like them on social media outlets last night are simple that, reviewers. Because they obviously are not fans of the show. Because a fan would know…
KISSING HAPPENS SOMETIMES ON THIS SHOW!!!
I think the real issue here of course is that it was two females kissing. That’s what people are really “offended” about, right? Just ignore the fact that Vastra and Jenny are one of (if not THE) longest lasting couples on the show. They are MARRIED.
How on earth is their kiss forced? Or out of place? This is not simply homophobia we are seeing here, it’s sexism. Because let’s not forget one of my favorite kisses…
Also, that is ironically funny to me is that NOT A SINGLE comment I have seen today has an issue with it being inter species! Like, you can kiss a giant lizard, just not a lizard lady.
I loved the kiss. It is one of only two times I looked away long enough to tweet last night! The BFF teamfreeyourassfromhell and I literally squealed/screamed enjoying the cuteness.
Props to BBC, Moffat, and the whole gang. I thought it was a good episode. I am enjoying Capaldi’s portrayal so far and I enjoy the love story of Vashtra & Jenny.
