Filed under in response to oodlyenough's tag: yes I do remember that person who complained that RTD never had a female character parallel the Doctor what a strange claim that was Doctor Donna is the most obvious place to go but I guess it's not really a parallel but Rose picks up a lot of the Doctor's jobs and behaviors which is especially clear in Turn Left and Martha reenacts the Time War in Journey's End companions Doctor Who Rose Tyler Martha Jones Donna Noble Clara Oswald Billie Piper Freema Agyeman Catherine Tate Jenna Coleman The Christmas Invasion The Sontaran Stratagem Journey's End Flatline

If I see one more person claim that School Reunion demonstrates that Rose was clingy and prone to petty jealousy and in any way a bad person I’m going to punch straight through the nearest wall* because could you miss the point any harder

same goes if I see one more person claim with certainty that the episode unambiguously attributed romantic feelings for the Doctor to Sarah Jane

*I’m not literally going to do this

Filed under Doctor Who Rose Tyler School Reunion RIGHTEOUS DEFENSE OF BELOVED CHARACTER MODE Sarah Jane Smith come on fandom you don't have to approve of her behavior but at least pay attention to what's motivating her there is nothing petty about it and it's one thing if it implies to you that Sarah was in love with the Doctor but that's not the only way to interpret it and it's not even the most obvious one you kind of have to twist it to get it to suggest that lots of italics in this post

We quickly located a firefighter costume for boys, complete with a bright red jacket, a traditional helmet and an axe. The girls’ version, on the other hand, is a skin-tight, short, shiny dress that’s surely flammable. It includes a fascinator (in lieu of a helmet) never before seen on a real firefighter.

The model on the package, who looks to be about the same age as my daughter, completes the outfit with heeled, calf-high boots — not ideal for running into burning buildings, or trick-or-treating for that matter. The costume is for children four to six and it’s one of several provocative costumes for the age group.

Even the pumpkin costume for preschoolers is sexy: it’s sleeveless and features a black bodice with an orange ribbon that laces up the front like a corset. I found the girls’ firefighter and the police officer costumes the most offensive, as they hung on the rack in stark contrast to the boys’ versions.

What kind of message do these costumes send to our girls? While the boys have costumes that look like the real thing, girls are expected to dress up in spoof ensembles, thus suggesting they can’t, or shouldn’t, do the real job. The costumes are not only “sexy,” they’re also sexist.

Halloween Costumes Are Sexualizing Our Youngest Trick-Or-Treaters

Filed under ugh sexism Halloween costumes I've been looking a lot at costume websites recently and even for kids the girls' costumes are overwhelmingly flashy and impractical and even sexy
