#that awkward moment when a 48 year old scifi show has more continuity #than a 2 year old series about misfit high schoolers 

*ahem- 50 year old…

But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.

That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.

Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.

lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011

additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME

her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’

I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

i did some math and discovered a terrifying fact


Your measurements and the one on the left don’t match up! The original Byakuya leg image made sure that the 0 and 20 lined up exactly with the top and bottom of the sprite, unlike yours which simply fitted the sprite to the ruler! Also, the center line should be placed directly at the top of Togami’s belt!
The real comparison should look like this:

The leg is consuming him even more quickly than expected…


THAT REASONING IS FLAWED!
It’s been flawed from the beginning, actually - because this has never been a measurement of his legs, it’s a measurement of his feet plus the height of his pants! He’s wearing two different pairs of paints - the second pair could very well have a higher waist than the other. And for that matter, the pants’ waist is fairly far up his abdomen! Where does the abdomen stop and the leg begin?




STOP RIGHT THERE!
Let’s clear this up, here and now, shall we?

For this measurement, let’s use where the crotch of his pants is for the top of the leg, because chances are he is consistent in that respect, and the bottom of the shoes for the bottom of the leg, because I cannon accurately tell where his ankle would be.
In the first image on the left, he is roughly 52.6% leg.
In the image on the right, he is roughly 54.8% leg.
And thus, we can conclude that Togami is now 2.2% more leg.
