If I didn’t believe that River And Eleven had an Abusive Relationship…I do now.


A slew of arguments arose after this scene in Angels Take Manhattan:


In which Eleven screams at River, and basically forces her to break her own wrist, because he was in a bad mood. Admittedly, I’m a huge River/11 shipper, and the scene bothered me. Even more so tonight, when I watched the first Angel’s revamp, part two, Flesh and Stone, with a friend who had never seen it before.

Again, Amy is in a tight spot, and the Doctor himself may have to risk his life to save the planet and close the crack in time. So what does he do? Yell at River Song:


And what does she do? She takes it. Just like she does in Angels Take Manhattan. Why? Because this is the behavior she has come to expect from him. And possibly because she values his life over her own. (We know she does, actually. She gave him all of her regenerations, sat in jail for days? months? years? for him, and even eventually dies just to save his life.) Shes so often proclaiming how great a man he is, and even (in AtM) tells Amy to dare not age or show that she’s damaged in any way because the Doctor doesn’t like it.


He screams, unwarranted, at River two times in this episode. And Jeremy pointed out to me, “Do you notice that he talks down to all the women? And he keeps being rude to River and disrespecting her every chance he can get.” Give the episode a rewatch. It’s true. It angers him whenever she displays intelligence larger than his own. Anyway, this is all very problematic.

Even more so than the fact that the Angel’s had entirely new ridiculous rules, and this entire episode is an inverted copy of Silence in the Library. i.e, the books were a forest and here there is a forest on the ship and how the Angel’s talk(?) using Bob’s voice, just as the Vashta Nerada spoke with the voice of the dead crew members. And of course, River Song, always a step ahead.



Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?

“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not,” says photographer Braden Summers of his photo series of everyday gay and lesbian couples from around the globe.
