Not long ago, Vox Day wrote a book called “SJWs Always Double Down,” detailing the fact that rather than admit being wrong, the typical Social Justice Warrior will just push harder in their desired direction in an effort to steamroll opposition. Unfortunately, the British TV series “Doctor Who” seems to be providing a picture-perfect example of this in action:
2018: Controversially casts Jodie Whitaker as the first female incarnation of the Doctor in the half-century history of the show
2018 – 2019: Ratings for the show drop dramatically
2020: Casts Jo Martin as the first *black* female incarnation of the Doctor…
My family enjoyed the show’s “modern” run episodes until it started going downhill in the Capaldi era, about 2014. There were always secondary characters and subtexts I could have lived without (Captain Jack being exhibit A). But when the producers decided to gender-swap the long-running “Master” character into “Missy,” I had a strong feeling it was a trial balloon to prep viewers for doing the same with the Master’s long-time nemesis, the titular Doctor himself. We’ve not watched a single episode since Capaldi left, although I’ve kept up with some of the reviews, which only confirmed my decision. From the furor on fan forums, we’re far from the only ones to have jumped Tardis. The younger crowd, having been thoroughly indoctrinated, reflexively dismisses critics of these changes as badthinkers.
The destruction of various franchises by “rebooting” them with characters who are now the opposite sex, or some LGBTQXYZABC specimen is increasingly pernicious. It demonstrates yet again how evil is parasitical. It doesn’t create – it only consumes, degrades and destroys. Fortunately, there are still those who seek to create, preserve and enjoy the Good, the True and the Beautiful.
