Moffat doesn’t believe in queer representation, he believes in using queer characters to appear ‘cheeky’ and ‘off-centered’!
I can’t at this moment put into words why that bothers me so much, but oohhh it does.
If anyone else wants to do it for me, be my guest.
Original interview here.
i would guess because it turns queer people into “cheeky”, “off-centered” attractions to be used for ratings and a ~*fun quirky tone*~ instead of just… people
Right. This is why I actually don’t like Moffat as opposed to just having a problem with some aspects of his writing. He’s basically just sat there telling afterelton how gay characters are quirky accessories to his cis-het male leads.
I just…I can’t even express how much shit like this pisses me off.
Ugh. I am not a fun/quirky/cheeky/anything accessory. I’m a person.
