what do you think of last episode's part about the horse Susan? How The Doctor asks the man to respect HIS (Susan's) life choices? What does it say that genderqueerness is represented through means of a horse? It just left me so confused and angry.

TW: Misgendering TW: Cissexism

He’s called Susan, and he wants you to respect his life choices. 

So we have this horse called Susan, a traditionally female name. After having established the horse prefers to be called Susan, The Doctor continues to refer to it as ‘he’. 

This blatant disregard for the horses gender identity is really awful as it reinforces the idea that it is okay to ignore peoples gender identities and preferred pronouns. It is also problematic that The Doctor refers to it’s gender identity as a ‘life choice’. 

Ultimately, this line added nothing to the episode and was irrelevant to the story. All it did was mock trans* folk. 

Furthermore, the fact that this horse is only the second trans* character in seven series’ of the show, the first being Cassandra, just speaks to the lack of respect the both RTD and Moffat have for trans* folk. 

These are the main points I’ve seen being discussed on my dash, but I’m cis so my understanding of this issue is limited.

ladypandacat replied to your photo: For some reason, neither google chrome nor firefox…

If you have xkit or missing e on your browsers they won’t work anymore which stops you from being able to post on Tumblr. :( It’s a ridiculous update for the most part.

my brother has done some computer magic and at least chrome is back to normal now

anyway I feel like this update does something similar to what missing e did

just worse

and when I reblog something I always get a message saying “Reblog failed!” but then I can reblog it anyway

it’s simply annoying and quite useless

*sigh*
