can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best
can this club have a support person that helps us to study because we didn’t need to before so we don’t know how to now
Wearing eyeliner doesn’t make you “girly” or “gay” a lot of girls actually find it attractive. If you wanna put concealer on that pimple go ahead. It doesn’t make you less of a man. Makeup is not intrinsically feminine. Don’t let society’s screwed up gender roles stop you from expressing yourself.
Martha leaving the Doctor in the Last of the Time Lords was not just about the Doctor not loving her back. It was about her needing to take care of her family after the Year That Never Was, it was about her realizing she’d been losing herself to the idea of being in love with this impossible man — and letting his subconscious treatment of her and idolization of Rose affect her self-esteem and self-confidence — for over year, and it was about the fact that continuing to be in that environment was not healthy to her life or her mental health.
Don’t do the disservice of reducing that choice down to it simply being about the Doctor not reciprocating her feelings. Leaving was the smartest thing Martha could ever do, the best thing for herself, the Doctor, and her family.
P.S. Fuck anyone who uses her choice for leaving as a reason to hate her along with the words “how DARE she leave the Doctor when he ~needed~ her” like he fucking owns her or some shit. Because, congratulations, you’re a dumb ass.
