The Ordinary Adventures of Laurel


Hey there. :) In this blog, I will use emoticons even when trying to maintain a professional serious attitude. You guys need to go ahead and accept that. :P
^See, there I go.

I'm a college student from sunny Florida! I'm finishing up my AA in the next couple of semesters(with any luck!) then starting the training process to become a doula. I love babies, as should be evident by the hundreds of baby pictures I reblog.

Hopefully, I'll one day be able to post pictures of my own babies...if I'm still using Tumblr when I'm old...
Who am I kidding, of course I'll still be using Tumblr when I'm old!

I'm avidly pro-life, so be prepared to be for all that may entail when choosing to follow or unfollow.

I'm a cat person.
I have a ton of food allergies.
I love reading.
I like Dr. Who.
Edward Monkton is a wonderful person and one of my heroes. If you look him up and don't fall in love with him, I'll send you a personal cyber hug and/or look of contempt.
My boyfriend's name is Jared, and he is even more wonderful that Edward Monkton. I'll try to keep the mushiness to a minimum.
I'm simplistic.
I'm somewhere in the spectrum between Catholic and Agnostic.
Insult any religion around me(with the exception of the Westboro Baptist Church) and you will surely earn a grudge so cold you might be at risk of hypothermia.
I'm very tired as I write this.
I have a Schnoodle named Chowder. My parents chose the name. I wanted to name her Toby. Or Chester, since all of the dogs my family has ever owned had names begnning in "Ch".
I am a cupcake baker. I have come up with new recipies in my dreams. I'm not kidding.
I'm delving into feminism. Yes, I am still pro-life. I will be glad to explain why those two go together.
I hate peas.
I love chocolate.
I enjoy people-watching.
I neither love nor hate hipsters. I only bring that up because it seems like everyone has to have at least some opinion of them. Nobody can just not mention them at least once.
I love puns.
I laught at my own jokes.
I laugh at my own puns.
Goodbye.

Next time you go walking around barefoot in the water…

NOPE

No worries, that’s a Bobbit Worm. They live on the ocean floor, and unless you’re able to withstand a ton of pressure, you likely wouldn’t have your toesies nipped off by one since they live deeper than people walk on the ocean floor.

Bobbit Worms are kinda cool. And they were named after Laurena Bobbit, who cut off her abusive husband’s penis and threw it out of her car window as she drove off.

Wait.

This little guy went from “Forbidden Enemy” to “Fucking Hero” in three seconds flat.

#that awkward moment when a 48 year old scifi show has more continuity #than a 2 year old series about misfit high schoolers 

*ahem- 50 year old…

But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.

That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.

Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.

lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011

additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME

her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’

I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with

Moffat is personally responsible for my transformation from a massive sobbing mess of a Who fan to a person who has not watched a full episode in literally years

Okay, I’m totally on board with Moffat being slimy and cheap and reducing a heroic story character into a giggling fangirl, but Jabe most certainly fancied the Doctor. That “air from my lungs” gifset that everyone loves? Yeah, the person he’s breathing on was Jabe and her companions, and she responds by being notably flustered and saying “How…intimate." To which, I believe, Rose says something about leaving them to pollinate, which fits in to Rose’s initial jealously regarding the Doctor.

So yes, Jabe’s storyline is way more important that some flirting with the Doctor in her first scene, but she most certainly fancied the doctor, at least initially. Don’t insult Moffat by insulting Davies.

It’s disgusting. “I have a right to your naked body or images that you’ve sent to your husband, or lover.” It’s disgusting. It’s this violent, abusive violation of womanhood—of divine womanhood. It’s violent, and it’s misogynistic, and it’s revolting…..There’s a guy now taking these pictures and putting them up in an art gallery. What fucking right does he have to do that? It’s absolutely revolting.

30 minutes is a long time to wait, but what you could do instead of acting like a four year old is:
1. Consider why it is taking so long. They are probably busy and trying to get to you as soon as possible.
2. If you don’t want to wait any longer, go somewhere else.
3. If they’re clearly just dicking around and ignoring you (which is really highly unlikely) actually confront them verbally, or again, just go somewhere else.
What fucking adult writes on a table with ketchup?

$20 says they walked straight past the “Please Wait to be Seated” sign and sat down without saying a word to anyone who worked there.

Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.

They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.

And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.
