Dear Steven Moffat,

Mr. Moffat, I would like to know, has any one ever called you boring? Having seen your Doctor Who and Sherlock episodes, I would doubt that. You don’t seem to like boring very much Mr. Moffat. You do everything in your power to make sure that your shows aren’t “boring” You fill them with explosions, action, and even dinosaurs. And you make sure that none of your characters are asexual. Because, as far as you’re concerned, Sherlock Holmes cannot possibly be asexual. Because that would make him boring.

You see, Mr Moffat, it is not very fun to be called boring. To be called too boring to be on TV. Many people have called me many things. They have joked that I am a plant, they have told me that I cannot call myself queer, they have told me that my orientation is not real, that I just want attention, they have said many awful things to me. And so have you.

Perhaps to you it may seem inconsequential, but it matters to me. And it matters to a lot of asexuals too. Because where TV is concerned, we do not exist. So many people have never even learned that my sexuality even exists. The Doctor cannot be asexual because he has to be in love with Rose and River and Clara. And that love has to be sexual. Sherlock cannot be asexual because…because it would be boring. Boring.

Well, Mr. Moffat, I am not boring. I live the same kind of exciting life as anyone else. And if it’s ~relationship tension~ you want, I have that in spades. I have relationship troubles. I spend hours worrying about the dissonance in my romantic and sexual orientation. I waste my nights worrying about whether the person I love, loves me back. I fret about my family and friends. I have just as much relationship tension as any detective.

There are many things about you, Mr. Moffat, that annoy me. Your sexism, your poor writing, your queerbaiting, your homophobia. But what finally made me stop watching your shows was when you told me I was boring. Doctor Who has meant a lot to me, but I cannot enjoy the show until I know the Doctor is no longer in your hands.

Mr. Moffat, you are a well known man. Your words carry weight and you can hurt people. You have hurt me Mr. Moffat. And you have hurt many other people with many of your words.

I am sorry that you are as ignorant as you are. And I eagerly await your departure from Doctor Who.

With much animosity,

-Mattie.

Oh, fuck Moffat.

Since the Babes JUST tweeted this and haven’t got to their blog yet, I’d thought I’d jump ahead and spread the news asap! Spread the word and thank you!

Thank you!  And thank you to all the fans who adore this show, for getting the word out there that it’s extremely uncomfortable for an actor to feel distracted from doing his or her best work.  Show love, step back, be mindful that these are people trying to bring you something amazing.

Respect the art.

I don’t know what to think of this Moffat thing. It’s really bothering me.

That article should bother you, but not because of Steven Moffat. It argues (if you can call it that) that he’s this woman-hating misogynist, and then reduces Madame du Pompadour (a brilliant and capable historical figure) to little more than 17th century whore. 

The only solid evidence the article provides in defense of it’s Steven-Moffat-Is-A-Woman-Hater came in the form of that quote, which I will point out was from another article written 4 years prior to this one. So at this point in time, the quote that was offered is nearly a decade out of date. And the statement he made was more to the point of how men and women view marriage, not necessarily how he views women. Also, the discussion the interviewer and he were having had to do with a show (Coupling) which was partially based on his own marriage, and had nothing to do (as the article would lead you to believe) with how Steven Moffat feels about women like Rose or Madade du Pompadour. 

The issue that I have with this article is that it tries to paint Steven Moffat (who I’ve always viewed as a bit of a champion for women) as a misogynist, while rather sexistly (is that a word) reducing some of the best female characters on the show to absolutely nothing. Sally Sparrow doesn’t get much development in her story arc of one episode. Yes, that’s true. But she’s still pretty amazing throughout and she winds up being the one to save the Doctor, and herself. Yes, she’s clever, but she’s not superhuman. (Or perhaps the author of this article believes that for a woman to be as clever as Sally Sparrow, she would have to be superhuman?) Not only does Sally Sparrow save the day with her cleverness, it depicts Martha taking care of business in the past while the Doctor figures out how to get them out of pickle. And he doesn’t shoosh Martha because “men are talking,” he already knows that he’s talking to Sally Sparrow. Has the author of this article even watched this episode? Who is to say that Sally and Larry end up together in the end? Because she puts her arm through his? That doesn’t mean that she’s taken him as a lover. They went through something extremely intense and traumatic together and they end up close friends who run a business. That doesn’t mean that they’re lovers. And the fact that the author of this article interpreted it that way would lead me to believe that whoever wrote this piece of trash is probably a bigger woman-hater than Moffat has ever been. 

Moffat does not hate woman. And anyone who could say differently is clearly not very familiar with the female characters that he has written. They haven’t seen River Song pull all of reality apart to keep from having to murder. They haven’t seen Amelia Pond take on a ship full of pirates or save the last living space whale. They haven’t seen Madame Vastra or her lover defend their comrades from an advancing army of headless monks. They haven’t witnessed Clara saving the Doctor and his friends from a planet full of insane and broken Daleks. They’re probably not too familiar with his version of Irene Adler or Mrs Hudson either…

Perhaps Moffat did think that women are needy at one point in his life. But so what? He’s spent the last few years of his career writing women leads who are desperately needed by his leading male. 

Hoooooraaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy :D 

Well, that about clears it up. Ladies and gents: alwayschasingsparrows, and reasons why she is awesome, and why I should do more research before opening my mouth lol.

Trying to piece together my thoughts on the Steven Moffat quote:

There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands.

Anyways, skimmed a couple articles, listened to a couple opinions from friends, and I think I have something:

Being a white, older male, he might have some sexist views on women, but I’ve never once thought while watching any of his stuff that anything was intentionally harmful towards women. I think any sexism he harbors is probably a product of his age and background (not that that makes it excusable, I’m just trying to dissect reasoning) but he definitely doesn’t seem (to me, and I may be wrong) to hate women; just look at his badass female characters. I don’t think that misogynist is the proper label in this instance. Misunderstanding, and under-educated in the ways of womenly ways perhaps, but he doesn’t appear to hate his female characters and I’ve never seen anything that looked outright malicious towards women. I think he’s just confused, and probably unknowingly clinging to a stereotype that was drilled into his head long ago. 

I’d like to hear others’ thoughts on the matter. Important thing to keep in mind here: I’m a dude. I might be waaaaaaay the fuck off the mark here. 

I can see what you’re getting at here, and I personally don’t feel like I have ever seen any serious misogyny in Moffat’s work. He presents weak characters in both men and women, and some seriously badass ladies to boot.There is a complexity to the women to whom we pay sufficient attention. I think you were right in saying this comment stems largely from his upbringing. Another aspect of this could very well be a poorly worded manner of raising the question of gendered nurturing (even if he was not trying to explicitly raise that point). Most boys do not grow up “playing at being married” because that’s the kind of make believe game girls are taught to play. Boys are often raised around men who, jokingly or seriously, say they ought not get married until they have to, laughing about being “tied down” or “trapped”. Young girls learn to look forward to their weddings as the most beautiful and magical day of their lives, and to look forward to a Prince Charming, or at least a man who will take out the trash once in a while.

It may not be what he specifically meant, but it is a possibility, and once again a product of his upbringing.

Valid points. It still worries me though. Just that one quote was enough to put a stain on my appreciation for Moffat, and I’m afraid of where it might go from here. We’ll likely see him respond to this once it get circulated enough. I hope he says the right things.
