Norm Feuti’s comic Gil addresses the obvious, simple reason:

Gil comic Doctor Who

Click over to Gil for the last two panels. I think you’ll see why so many fans feels that it’s perfectly reasonable to ensure the Doctor remains male.

Thanks to J. Nick in comments on “on the hidebound misogyny of (some) science fiction fans… and pros” for the heads-up.

    When I hear people complaining that poor, fragile, sensitive male egos will get bruised, I am reminded of the arguments for censorship: oh, of course, we are all right, but some people could be adversely affected…

    Really. What would a female Doctor harm? (Particularly given how much the show’s been driven into the ground lately anyway. Fan loyalty has already either evaporated or hardened, depending on the fan.)
