[1] I agree it's wrong to erase a lesbian character's orientation, but I don't rly like the use of "she's never dated/openly showed interest in a man so she can't be bi" argument to prove someone is a lesbian. I'm bi and I haven't yet dated a girl,

but that doesn’t make me any less bisexual. And tbh, I think anyone would be grossed out by Mayor Dewey. So though there’s a good chance Pearl is a lesbian, it’s not impossible that she’s bi. That’s just my thoughts! ^-^

Hey, thanks for being so polite about this!

The thing is she shows discomfort with men in addition to a profound lack of interest; not only in Dewey, but also in Greg. Remember in Coach Steven when Greg asked Pearl if she came out to check out his “buff studs”, and her response was “no”, with a pretty uncomfortable look?

Her discomfort and lack of attraction towards men (and men flirting with her) and obvious attraction to Rose, for example, suggests to me that she’s a lesbian. 

And the thing about the whole “well maybe she hasn’t found the right man yet” idea is that’s something a lot of lesbians are told. A ton lesbians are forced to deal with things like “well you just haven’t found the right man yet, you just need to wait for the right man and you’ll see”. And applying that to Pearl (who is definitely a lesbian) is lesbophobic I think, because it’s a way of saying that a lesbian needs a man in her life and the only reason she’s attracted to women and women-aligning NB folks is because she just “hasn’t found the right man”. It erases a lesbian’s identity, and that’s really not cool!


Clara Oswald theory: Bad Wolf/Rose Tyler and Clara are somehow related


  • Bad Wolf was able to see all of time and space and mold it. (ep: Journey’s End)
  • Constant presence of roses around all three “versions” of Clara.
  • ‘The most important leaf in human history’ was from a Norway Maple. (ep: The Rings of Akhaten). Darlig Ulv Stranden (a.k.a. Bad Wolf Bay) is located in Norway (ep: Doomsday / Journey’s End)
  • On 5 March 2005, Rose Tyler first met the Doctor. (ep: Rose) 5 March 2005 is also the date when Clara’s mother died. (ep: The Rings of Akhaten).
  • Clara is always wearing red clothes (or something red, like her bag in The Rings of Akhaten). Red is the color of most common roses. Also, this could be a clever reference to Red Riding Hood, whose enemy was the Wolf.
  • The TARDIS doesn’t seem to like Clara (ep: The Rings of Akhaten). This may be due to the fact that she is an anomaly of the Universe. The same thing happened with Jack Harkness, since Bad Wolf gave him immortality. The TARDIS tried to shake Jack off (ep: Utopia).
  • The car that almost hit Clara’s father is extremely similar to the one that killed Rose’s father (ep: The Rings of Akhaten / Father’s Day)
  • Clara sings the Duran Duran song “Hungry Like A Wolf” (ep: Cold War)

The chained up Dalek Clara will eventually be the chained up Dalek in the episode ‘Dalek’ that Rose touches and makes too human.  The Dalek eventually kills itself and splits its atoms (I think?) because it has become ‘too human.’ That’s why there’s so many Rose references.

has anyone noticed that every epsiode always involves the Doctors past?

  1. Asylum showed the return of the Daleks, including some he encountered in Classic Who.
  2. Snowmen and Bells of St. John had the Great Intelligence.
  3. Rings of Akaten the Doctor had been to the planet before.
  4. Cold War shows the return of the Ice Warriors.

idk it’s possibly a coincidence, but it’s for sure interesting…

My Clara theories

I think she is one of three things:

Jack’s daughter

Rose & Tentwo’s daughter (who is also potentially Susan? I can’t remember the reason behind that part, I’ll come back to it later)

The little girl who runs/is the library in The Silence In the Library. Those wifi posts reminded me an awful lot of the sentries in the library. This one could also possibly explain how she ended up in the Dalek.
