Steven Moffat on writing Lynda Day from Press Gang:
"Because I’ve never been a 17 year old girl, it’s rather interesting to think like one, or rather to force yourself to consider the world from that perspective. And it actually started to make me angry. I’d never really thought about it before, but you know, when I’d consider the world from the viewpoint of this dynamic, highly intelligent, highly talented 17 year old girl, and think what’s going to happen to her, think about how much harder it’s going to be for her than it would be if she’s been a boy, it made me SO angry.” 
what a sexist!!! why didn’t they put that on the list?!!cause it doesn’t fit in their small mind. 

does this quote cancel out other quotes though? off the top of my head i know he joked about nancy being a ‘slut’ on the DVD commentary for ‘the doctor dances’ — so there’s one shitty sexist joke vs one good quote, do they cancel each other out?
i haven’t read the post in question in your screencap but since it calls itself a list of sexist things moffat has said, of course they’re not including things that moffat said that aren’t sexist, just like i wouldn’t expect it to include sexist things other people have said. this post is not pretending to be a compendium of every quote moffat has ever said. it’s cool that he said this one thing about a show like 20 years ago or whatever, but that doesn’t change the shitty things he HAS said, nor does it necessarily change what people feel about his writing. someone can say something good one day and then something shitty the next day, i’m not necessarily obligated to overlook the shitty thing they did because they did something nice the day before.

I mean even broken clock is right twice a day. 

 Don’t understand why Mark Gatiss, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi, (and so on) would want to work with a ‘real’ sexist,as that is clearly known for years. That commentary was one bad joke vs tons of good quotes… try to notice the difference between real hate against women and someone who makes a bad/wrong joke now and then. But when blind hate comes to the scene, you can’t see clearly, I understand that, my mistake. 

Disregarding that “these actors worked with this famous writer” proves absolutely nothing at all, lmao @ listing a bunch of dudes as proof another dude can’t possibly sexist. I always look to Martin “Rape Joke” Freeman and Matt “Would a female Doctor have a baby LOL” Smith whenever I make any decisions about what I do or do not find offensive as a woman.
Most people don’t think Steven Moffat runs around in his personal life wildly oppressing women at every possible chance like an absurd Medieval caricature. That doesn’t change his habit of saying shitty sexist things or writing sexist content. This is a meaningless argument you are using. He does not have to say sexist stuff 100% of the time all the time every day to still have a history of saying and writing sexist things.
It is not “one bad joke vs tons of good quotes”. It is just a lot of quotes. Obviously there are a lot of sexist quotes, enough to make an entire damn post. Whether someone thinks the good outweighs the bad is up to them, but telling other people they’re wrong because you unearthed one old quote where he isn’t being a dick does nothing to respond to the many many times he has been a dick.

I literally screamed when I figured this out, though. The Daleks, all wrong. They’re not right in Dalek standards; they’re skewed, they’re not made of hatred. When Amy walks into the room, she sees what the broken Daleks perceive themselves to be. Compassion, love; two Daleks ballroom dance and one introduces Amy to a party. He’s homely; he’s welcoming. And then there’s a Dalek swerving in circles, like she’s dreaming; she’s still a little ballerina girl. She is not hatred.

And then there’s Oswin. Dear Oswin, who was clever and hid herself in a dream. She was human. The rusty, broken Daleks don’t think they’re Daleks. Remember that.

#Okay but so if this is actually the case #then this episode is utterly horrifying on so many levels #because instead of trying to find a way to save the planet-full of more human Daleks #to set them on course to be more empathetic#to nurture a small population of them into compassionate and thoughtful creatures#THE DOCTOR LETS THEM GET BLOWN UP #he doesn’t rescue ANY of them #not even Oswin #He lets the Parliament-full of regular ”healthy” hate-spewing order-taking rage machine Daleks live #and he lets the planet full of human Daleks die#This actually really really disturbed me #Because as much as he hates the Daleks (which is probably more than anything else besides himself #honestly) #He’s the DOCTOR and if there’s a place for hope and saving anything worth saving #at least TRYING to save something worth saving #the Doctor will risk life and limb to do it#But he didn’t #Not this time (via gallifreyburning)

HAHA THANKS

and dude even if this is not the case

even if the insane Daleks are evil and horrible (which is really really ableist and hurts me inside as a mentally ill person)

the Doctor never even asks

the regular Daleks tell him that these Daleks—who he has only ever heard whispered legends about and let’s be honest the Doctor is probably not the expert on whether Dalek legends are true or not—need to be blown up

and he just agrees

they send him down to this planet

and he just kills all the Daleks he finds

without even thinking about it

without even checking to see what makes them so different

so can I just say

this is not my Doctor

#Rose would be ashamed of you Doctor #you had better learn something from this #if Oswin comes back as Clara or whoever #you had BETTER learn from this

I am desperately hoping that this was all because the Doctor is careening down a Time Lord Victorious path, tbh. And it comes to a head sometime this season, and he gets called out on it in a big way and/or actually suffers some consequences.

Because if this is just his character development, and this is just the Doctor now … yeah.

Guys I think its more that the doctor realised that these ones barely even know they’re Daleks.
They’re beyond saving. They can’t be themselves again. Who’d accept them? no one. What could he do? Take them from there to somewhere else? No. He could stop their suffering, leave them to rot? No. He’d end their confusion, save them from the pain. 

"They’re beyond saving", "They can’t be themselves again"?  Do you hear yourself? Do you have any inkling how many times those same words have been applied to mentally ill individuals? 

This whole episode was a big clusterfuck of ableism against the mentally ill.  Nobody’s life is too horrendous or “painful” to have value. But that’s precisely the message that this episode sent.  And it’s an idea that you clearly agree with, and that makes me sick.

I’d suggest looking at Stfu-Moffat’s ‘ableism’ tag for more info.
