Ok, I am getting seriously fucking annoyed with the term “Person of Colour”. It is stupid, inconsiderate and kinda friggin racist.
I live in a share house with my landlord who is Indian, and a Chinese girl here on a work visa, with myself being Aboriginal. And while you could collectively refer to us all as “women of colour”, that is so demeaning and dismissive of our indiviual backgrounds and cultures.
What’s wrong with people identifying with their own cultures? Or are we all supposed to stand up against white opression together, despite the fact that every culture in every country has their own differing experiences with racism, and I wouldn’t expect, say, a sudanese girl to feel any kinship with me. So why use a catch-all term at all?
The world isn’t divided into “white people” and “everyone else”, and to use some stupid umbrella term for non-white people is to perpetuate the notion of segregation and is, in my mind, just another form of racism under the guise of, presumably, good intentions.

people trying to make ‘yana’ about fucking gallifrey
yes, rtd totally wrote the story this way
What the hell, no. Way to miss the entire fucking point of the arc.
Well, of course Moffat had to retcon the Master’s role away. Otherwise, people might remember Ten telling him PRECISELY why Gallifrey returning is a really fucking bad idea!
DOCTOR: Something is returning. Don’t you ever listen? That was the prophecy. Not someone, something.
MASTER: What is it?
DOCTOR: They’re not just bringing back the species. It’s Gallifrey. Right here, right now.
MASTER: But, I did this. I get the credit. I’m on your side.
[Insert bit with the glass booths here]
MASTER: But this is fantastic, isn’t it? The Time Lords restored.
DOCTOR: You weren’t there in the final days of the War. You never saw what was born. But if the Timelock’s broken, then everything’s coming through. Not just the Daleks, but the Skaro Degradations, the Horde of Travesties, the Nightmare Child, the Could-have-been King with his army of Meanwhiles and Never-weres. The War turned into hell. And that’s what you’ve opened, right above the Earth. Hell is descending.
MASTER: My kind of world.
DOCTOR: Just listen! Because even the Time Lords can’t survive that.
RASSILON: We will initiate the Final Sanction. The end of time will come at my hand. The rupture will continue until it rips the Time Vortex apart.
MASTER: That’s suicide!
RASSILON: We will ascend to become creatures of consciousness alone. Free of these bodies, free of time, and cause and effect, while creation itself ceases to be.
DOCTOR: You see now? That’s what they were planning in the final days of the War. I had to stop them.
And this is why I give people the biggest fucking stink and side-eye in motherfucking existence when they start going BAWWW The CHILDREN OF GALLIFREY
THE DOCTOR IS NOT GOING TO MURDER HIS OWN FUCKING RACE ON A FANCY. HE’S NOT GOING TO KILL OVER A MILLION CHILDREN FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES. IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING FUCKING HORRIFIC TO DRIVE HIM TO THAT. LIKE THE ERASURE OF EXISTENCE ITSELF FOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE BY A BUNCH OF FUCKING DANGEROUS LUNATIC FUCKS HE CANNOT DEFEAT ANY OTHER WAY.
Piss on Moffat. He’s fucking whitewashed and romanticised a pack of murdering war criminals that threaten reality itself, and incredibly clumsily tried to pull on our heartstrings to excuse doing it. And we’re going to get nothing but revisionist history ignoring all of RTD’s work building events up to a hard decision made at a hard time because fucking Moffat can’t handle consequences for anything.
You want the Doctor’s victory in his darkest hour? A fucking half-dreamt fucking headcanon is a better victory than that.

Scarlett’s stunt training for her role as Black Widow in Iron Man2
“Scarlett hadn’t really done an action role.And she assured me that she would work as hard as she needed to both get in sharp and do her stunts and learn all that stuff.She spent hours and hours and hours for months.By far the most dedicated actor when it came to stunt work and the physical work.” - Jon Favreau:Director&co-star
