Overnight the BBC introduced the first female Dr Who and not everyone is 100% happy about it.
Time LORD. I repeat the Doctor is a time LORD. Not a time LADY.

Only ever had male doctors and having a female one will ruin the legacy

Imagine one of your favourite shows but with someone of the opposite gender playing your favourite character(s). Hell.

And look, they have a point. If women start playing time-travelling doctors on TV they might start becoming doctors in real life, and pilots, and CEOs, and Prime Ministers – and then we won’t be able to stop this madness.
Men won’t be able to walk in the streets without being flung in the face with a rogue bra.
Thankfully, a few ‘outraged lefty feminists’ also shared their feelings on Twitter.
Oh great a female Doctor Who. What next? Female real doctors? Female pilots? Female scientists? Female sisters and mothers? Female WOMEN?!
Your dad thinks Dr Who being a woman spoils the realism of someone travelling space & time in a phonebox fighting bins with plungers on them

If you’re angry about #doctor13 possibly being a woman, just remember:
1) Its not real
2) The Doctor is an alien
3) You’re a moron
