purpleamp asked: what is your opinion on the doctor being asexual?

You know, back in those distant halcyon days of, oh, about five weeks ago, if someone had asked me a question like this, I would have cheerfully answered it. That was before I watched the hate mail (some of it rather intense and scary) come in from people who were angry because the Twelfth Doctor wasn’t a woman and I seemed okay with this, and before I saw answers to asks on this Tumblr quoted out of context and bolstered by lies in the Daily Mirror newspaper¬†and off across the net. ¬†

These modern days having an opinion on Doctor Who seems significantly less fun than it used to, so I think I will keep mine to myself. I’m sorry. Ask me when we meet, and I’ll tell you.
