The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views...which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.
—The Doctor

Doctor Who is a British sci-fi fantasy series that has aired on the BBC since 1963 (bar a 16-year hiatus between 1989 and 2005). It follows a mysterious space wizard as he/she/they fly about time and space in their magical blue Police Telephone Box, fighting all manner of monsters, ranging from fascist pepper pots to poorly chroma-keyed tin foil. The series has long attracted the ire of conservative moral guardians and, in more recent years, Anti-SJWs, who moan about how the show suddenly turned woke the moment the Doctor became female, which definitely wasn't possible in prior canon, painfully ignorant of how the show has always been "woke", having been created by Verity Lambert, one of the first female producers at the BBC, and Waris Hussein, who is gay. Regardless of this, the Anti-SJWs insist that it was all the fault of the showrunner Chris Chibnall, who if anything just made the show a bit eh. The irony of their whining comes in the fact that the core values of the show involve trying to be kind and respecting one another, regardless of their race, gender or sexuality. All things Anti-SJWs have completely failed at.
