Living and working in L.A. Have a degree in making TV that is currently being underutilized. I like lots of TV and books, especially scifi and fantasy with cool lady characters.
People who don’t think the Doctor should be played by a woman or POC are getting mad that I won’t give them my ribbon saying they’d watch a doctor who’s a woman or POC because “I’d watch! I would just complain about it!”
How about “Get Moffat Out of the TARDIS”
Hahaha, I genuinely thought about doing something like this, but it’s a convention where people who like Doctor Who go to have fun and I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade by making them feel uncomfortable to like something, since being comfortable liking things is the whole point. But it would be nice to meet more people with my opinions on his Who. And commiserate together on how terribly he’s handling everything.
What if I brought a ribbon like this? Too subtle, too negative for a convention that’s supposed to celebrate the show, or just the right level of snark?
Thinking about ordering badge ribbons for Gallifrey One that say something like
"I’d watch a woman Doctor" or "Not Another White Man for Doctor 13" or something like that and you can only wear them if you agree. But
1) I worry I’d spend the con arguing with people I don’t like instead of meeting cool people I would (the second being the intention)
2) I can’t come up with a wording I like enough
3) I worry people will take this to mean I hate Capaldi, when actually I’ve loved him as an actor for years and have no doubt he could play the part well (even if I do have doubts about what Moffat will write for him)
