Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 13, 2024

The Metro UK magazine has apparently deleted its Twitter/X account in response to backlash after it published an article stating "Sorry, straight white males, Doctor Who was never made for you". If Disney isn't deliberately trying to kill this franchise, they couldn't be more incompetent.

A publication named "metro" sounds so suspiciously gay oriented

Just how many of these sites do you subscribe too?

It's easy to tell you've never watched the show.

The show has always been super left and "woke" since it was brought back.

I get it. Nazis don't like chicks.

"It's easy to tell you've never watched the show.
"The show has always been super left and "woke" since it was brought back."

LOL. Physician heal thyself.

There's no doubt that it tilted left, but the first series of the revival also had villains who were posing as refugees (the Gelth), portrayed a transsexual villain as being obsessed with plastic surgery, and had companion Rose Tyler jokingly insult the Doctor by saying "You're so gay!" None of that stuff would pass muster in today's BS version of "woke".

But that's beside the point that the producers of this show are now actively telling a huge chunk of its long-time audience to ---- off, based solely on their skin color, sex and orientation.

@#7 ... Maybe racist --------- don't get to make the rules. ...

I do not disagree.

Did Gov DeSantis ban viewing the recent aurora display in the sky because the varied colors represented the Gay Pride flag?

That seems to be Florida of late.

#8- you're just proving it's a competition of Dumb and Dumberer. The super left and the super right only exist to outdo and one-up each other's stupidity.

The latest Dr. Who on Disney+ is excellent. I'm really enjoying it!

The last time I browsed Disney + it seemed like every third choice was about sharks. Don't get me wrong, sharks are cool but it was a lot. Plus orcas own white sharks.

Must've been during shark week.

#13. I don't think it was, but I guess that's possible.
