A tragic day for whiny baby-men — the BBC just announced that the next Doctor Who will be a lady. Naturally, these sensitive souls took at once to Twitter to make their displeasure known. And to make jokes about Doctor Who turning into Nurse Who amirite fellas high five!
Here are some of the best of the worst Tweets I’ve seen so far. I can’t decide which are my favorites — the ones lamenting the loss of a crucial male “role model” or those suggesting that a female Doctor Who makes as much sense as a male Mary Poppins (which would be perfectly fine to me, by the way).
Female Doctor Who?? More like Nurse Who. Birds aren't smart enough to be doctors

Fuck you BBC. Fuck you lefties. You are in the minority. The BBC has been taken over by leftists. Can't wait for the show to fail. #doctor13

The BBC have literally just ruined all the heritage and history of Doctor Who making the new Doctor a woman

Doctor Who officially ruined. Time Lords being women not an issue, 50 years of tradition out the window is. What next 007 being Janette Bond pic.twitter.com/Hj3buVMx8s

#DoctorWho So patronising to women to be chosen due to political correctness. No room for merit and talent if PC comes first.

It started with woman Ghostbusters, Star Wars now Dr Who, what's next 007 Jane Bond ?, it's not women wanna be equal they wanna be superior

Women have their own heroes like RIpley, Buffy and Wonder Woman, there is no need to take away role models for men #notmydoctor

I remember when Ripley, Leia, Buffy, Xena et al. trailblazed great women characters. But now, feminism seems pleased with mere pandering.

I am shocked the new doctor is a women why break tradition… I'm not backing down women empowerment, but in the fight place… #doctor13

#doctorwho The regressive left are going crazy over the choice, next they will want a transgender to take the role as the Doctor.

No, I don’t understand what that last one means either.
