Best. Sentence. Ever. Always reblog.

Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored."

I like that this changed the context of the line from The End of Time.
Originally the “That was a mistake” sounds like he decided to get married then regretted the decision, whereas in this episode the proposal was a failed ploy to uncover a plot.
(But you know, she probably accepted mainly because she’d just been shown his TARDIS and could see a tactical advantage in marrying a time-traveller. I say this because it seems like they hadn’t spent much time in each other’s company, hence his surprise at her acceptance.)
And also the way he stumbled over the end of the sentence “…her nickname is no longer the Virgin Queen”. Many took this implied use of ‘virgin’ to be sexual in nature, but here we see in fact that his use merely refers to her state of marriage. Which is in itself a continuation of Eleven mentioning (in the Wedding of River Song?) that Queen Elizabeth the First “…is still waiting for me in her garden.”
And it comes full circle in “The Shakespeare Code” of course when Liz I wants to exact revenge on the Doctor for not returning as he promised.
Ooooh, you know I hadn’t even thought of that, but you’re right. Marrying him to get at his TARDIS or time-travel or just a guarantee of his help in general is totally something Bess would have done. A treaty with Spain or other advantages was never quite enough incentive, but I can definitely see her going for a shot at that advantage - especially since the Doctor certainly wouldn’t strike her as the kind of man who would want to take ruling England from her either. (This was the only part of the episode I had some issues with, but this idea so makes it work.)
Here she was presented with a fairly laid back man with not an ounce of ambition towards her politics or her throne, who was generous and fairly romantically minded, who also happened to have mastery over time and space… Suitable for marriage, performing as a puppet-monarch to herself, and also giving her the ultimate advantage over her enemies.
And all she has to do is play along with his obvious infatuation with her. Win win.
To anyone in the UK: this little 3 year old girl lost her best friend, named Mr. Rabbit, in London a few days ago. Her mother has begun an online campaign to find him. The little girl cries herself to sleep every night because she misses him. These best friends should not be apart.
This is Tumblr guys! If anyone can find this rabbit, we can. Please reblog the shit out of this to reunite these best buddies.
If you have any leads, report them here.

Am i the only one who thought the angels were under the dust sheets?!?!?!?
I AM SO GLAD I WASN’T ALONE WHEN I THOUGHT THIS.
So did I.
LITTLE DID WE KNOW IT WAS ACTUALLY PETER, COLIN, AND SYLVESTER
The credited cast of “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot" and their connection to Doctor Who.
In case you wanted to know all the cameos. Accurate only to the best of my knowledge, which is hopefully good enough.
Also this guy keeps popping up, but I don’t know his name, I just know he runs the difficult DW pub quiz in Cardiff, which he also did at the 50th Celebration. (I won one of them, by the way, have a certificate and all.)
You forgot the old lady who does gardening but I reckon she’s Colin Baker’s wife?
Well damnit, I actually left out a whole page that didn’t get saved properly. I’ve added it to the original post but it’s probably too late now.
