“In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.”

“A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger.”

some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via dahlia—noir)

I actually love Clara so much more now bc they’re actually revealing more of her character now. This season opener at least was her story and her time to shine (as it should, bc this show needs to be the companion’s story not the doctor’s). And Peter & Jenna are great together, contrasting both physically (young vs older, short vs tall) and in their acting choices. Jenna is so much more grounded and the audience’s surrogate to this new doctor. She gets to be angry and apologized to, she gets to grieve and define her own terms of how she wanted to die. And Peter is both hilarious and furiously adding an unhinged edge to the doctor that’s not quirky and comforting, but rather confusing and dangerously in his own realm of control.

I’m not saying the plot was brilliant and there were a lot of unnecessary lines concerning opinions of women (and Clara continually misgendered by strax). Plus the main story arc again will be about the “mystery” of the doctor (ala the girl in the fireplace and fires of pompeii). But there’s hope, esp if it’s true that Peter argued about certain material he was given and if moffat actually does Clara justice.

Anyway, I wish we had more of the dinosaur. And I’m still confused as to why Clara apparently knows all about the time lords but not who Amy was?? But yeah. I guess I’ll be watching this show still.


All it takes is one event to set a precedent. If Darren Wilson is arrested for, charged with, and convicted of the murder of Michael Brown, then that means ALL cops can be held accountable for their actions. It means the people can ALWAYS rise up and fight back against police brutality. 

That’s what the cops and National Guard in Ferguson is fighting against. They don’t want this standard to be set.
