harryhadouken asked: Is the War Doctor now considered as the canonical Ninth Doctor?
I don’t really understand the question. I’m tempted to say something like, “No, the John Hurt War Doctor is just something that happened in THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR, THE NIGHT OF THE DOCTOR and THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR on television.”
If it happens on the TV, it’s canonical, unless it isn’t. (For example, no-one seems entirely sure whether we get to see pre-Hartnell regenerations during the mindbending battles of Brain of Morbius.)
We now know there was a regeneration between the Paul McGann Eighth Doctor and the Chris Ecclestone Ninth Doctor, one whom the Doctor himself has only just begun to regard as being The Doctor (as opposed to being something else).
If you mean, “Do we now all have to agree to renumber all the Doctors?”, I think the main purpose of numbering things is to communicate, and we all know who we mean when we say Doctors NIne, Ten or Eleven. If anyone corrects you and says “You mean TWELFTH!” when you say “Matt Smith was the eleventh Doctor” then that person is being irritatingly pedantic and should be pitied, in a nice way and with a gentle friendly, not-patronising sort of love, because they will have long hard lives ahead of them.
agonderae asked: As an atheist who doesn't deface money, I'll admit to being annoyed at your response to the atheist/agnostic distinction. Many of us regard agnosticism as a matter of epistemology while using faith, or the lack thereof, in a supreme being as a barometer for the purposes of being a theist/atheist. I find many people who claim the label of agnostic are actually atheists, in that they don't believe in a god, who are attempting to avoid confrontation by using a more innocuous label.
I deface money all the time. Sometimes I will just draw a beard on the president. If the president already has a beard, I will add a top hat. And while I don’t scratch out “In God We Trust” I do cross out the T so it says “In God We Rust.” My hope is that it will make some people paranoid about divine oxidation.
I will admit to being annoyed by your response to my response. I think you purposely use big words because you want to seem smarter and superior to those who aren’t like you. Epistemology? A large vocabulary should be used to add flourish to your writing, to make descriptions more vivid… not to make yourself look super duper smart. Intellectualism is a passion for knowledge, not showing off how much you know.
People should be allowed to define themselves. It isn’t up to you to label them. It isn’t up to you to judge their reasons for choosing a label. If they feel more comfortable with the term agnostic, then that’s what they are. Maybe they truly are doubtful and that fits them best, or maybe they need something more innocuous. Not everyone is comfortable with confrontation. Have you ever had a panic attack from social anxiety? Preferring safety is not some flaw to be looked down upon.
I sincerely hope you are not confronting agnostics, spewing big words at them, and telling them they are a farce. Find comfort in your own beliefs and respect the terms people use to define themselves.
why do nice girls always go for the assholes i dont even like pegging
No. Just. NO. I am so sick of this bullshit stereotype being both perpetuated AND played out. No.
Saying nice girls go with the assholes is the biggest stereotype in relationships of all time
i’m not even in this fandom but it looks like they are comparing dicks
They’re totally comparing dicks

the way I see it, “black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other
