Op­po­si­tion to new Doc­tor is sex­ist

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

I was pleased to see An­drew Smith wel­come a fe­male Doc­tor Who but was some­what per­plexed by his as­ser­tion that peo­ple against it are not sex­ist.

My un­der­stand­ing is the Doc­tor is a space-trav­el­ling alien who re­gen­er­ates ev­ery so of­ten.

If that is the case the only sur­prise is that after a dozen or so re­gen­er­a­tions the Doc­tor is only now be­com­ing a woman.

Any sug­ges­tion the Doc­tor has to be a male sim­ply doesn’t stand up to scru­tiny and if you feel that is the case then, I’m sorry, that is sex­ist.
