You can enjoy something and still be critical of it.

You can enjoy something and still be critical of it.

YOU CAN ENJOY SOMETHING AND STILL BE CRITICAL OF IT.

YOU. CAN. ENJOY. SOMETHING. AND. STILL. BE. CRITICAL. OF. IT.

YOU. CAN. ENJOY. SOMETHING. AND. STILL. BE. CRITICAL. OF. IT.

How fucking hard is that to understand? No, Doctor Who is not untouchable. It’s regrettable that he was bullied off of Twitter, but Steven fucking Moffat is not untouchable. I fucking love Doctor Who, which is why I hold it to a higher standard than most shows.

I still had feels about last night’s episode. I still got nostalgic for the days of Nine and Ten. I felt the Doctor’s pain and I still like where this season is going. You can’t tell me that I enjoy the show any less than you do. I run a Doctor Who blog. This how deep my feels run for this show.

But no. I will not stop speaking out against the problematic things in this show, just because you want to be comfortable with your enjoyment of it. For me, it’s not so big of a deal because I know that it’s more complicated than just “shut up and enjoy the show.” My thoughts are more complex than that.

    The “all or nothing” “with us or against us” mentality just needs to die. Seriously.
