When I first saw this I was really happy because he mentioned Amy, which didn’t happen at all in series 7b until the Christmas special. But then I saw a post pointing out that this was a joke about Amy’s legs. And I was disappointed. Yes, it’s just a fact that Amy had longer legs than Clara and would be more helpful in this situation, and normally I’d be fine with this. Except that this is just an example of Steven Moffat’s weird obsession with Karen Gillan’s legs. There were constant jokes and comments during her run as companion. In the short where Clara sees images of old companions in the TARDIS, all she has to say about Amy is that “that woman is just made of legs.” And now this. The Doctor can’t even remember what the clockwork men are called, but at least he can remember that his last companion’s legs. There is nothing sentimental here, just a creepy old sexist man projecting his sexism onto characters who deserve better. And, just to be clear, this comment on it’s own really would be fine. There’s no objectification here, it just would be more helpful to have someone with longer legs around. The problem is that it is backed up with many instances of objectifying Amy and reducing her to ‘the legs’.

Gosh, he can’t remember the clockwork men from 900 and more years ago but can remember the companion he had a mental image of a few hours ago..how very strange! Also even if your issues with him having  a laugh about her long legs (which is similar to having a laugh about a big chin, but lets just ignore that..) are about issues in the past..why is it affecting your opinion of the scene!? It was fine, but because there were a few legs jokes in the past it’s not anymore?

'Many instances' 

Once, in the context of nicknames and then again in a DVD exclusive minisode where Clara points out that Amy’s legs are longer than average. That’s literally it. When Rory’s nose and Eleven’s chin are mentioned in nearly every episode the argument starts to get ridiculous.

Straws, clutching at etc. 

1. I didn’t get that that was a legs reference. I thought he just thought Amy was a better aim?? Apparently there’s a scale of how much you can think about Amy’s legs and I feel like the DW fans are at an 8 and I’m at a 1. Moffat’s probably only a 5.

2. Doctah your legs are now twice as long as Clara’s just grab the sonic yahself.

  • Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
  • Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that

Overture to a post.

“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt

This just motivated the fuck out of me.

there are certain characters/families in the Harry Potter canon that are described as having fair or pale skin, the Potter line isn’t one of them. Harry and James both have canonically jet-black untidy hair but no canon ethnicity. Harry has “great skin”.
