The Internet Is Roasting Sexist ‘Doctor Who’ Fans And It Is Just Magnificent

"Doctor Who just won't be the same without The Doctor going on about his dick all the time."

The BBC has just announced that the new Doctor Who will be a woman, and fans are mostly very happy about it. The casting of Jodie Whittaker is a fantastic move – not only is it great from a representation standpoint, but after 50 years as a white dude, it kind of makes sense that sci-fi’s favourite time-travelling, shape-shifting alien would feel like a bit of a change of pace.

Sadly, it is a law of the internet that for every positive reaction there will be a wildly disproportionate negative one. It happened with lady Star Wars and it happened with lady Ghostbusters and you can be damn sure it’s happened with lady Doctor Who.

Fortunately, social media users have no time for sexist Whovians, and have quickly made a sport out of mocking their stupid baby faces.

Jodie Whittaker will take over as the Doctor next year. So you’d better get used to the idea.
