If you hang around the "Supernatural" fandom, or Tumblr in general really, you’ve probably heard the acronym GISHWHES being tossed around here and there, usually accompanied by an awed whisper (“She’s doing GISHWHES again this year, she must be mad!”) or an aura of terror (“They say you have to do this thing… with people!”). In case you had no idea what it is, don’t worry – I’m still not quite sure how to explain it… which is probably not a good thing, since this year, I will be doing it. Not only that – I’ll also be blogging about it, one day at a time, to give you a first-hand look at what it’s like, being part of GISHWHES.

Doctor-Who_11-doctors

By Steven Smith

OH the hate speech I received when I ranted about the new Doctor not being a woman or a person of color. The jibes, the angst, the sexist/racist rhetoric of “it doesn’t fit the story” or “shouldn’t talent and narrative come first?”, slammed into my twitter feed like millions of voices who were immediately silenced. Now, who the hell am I to voice an opinion, I’ve never watched an episode of "Doctor Who"--“WHAT??!!!” the nerd world squeals with ambiguity, who the hell ARE you? Valid point - but I haven’t watched because I tried and didn’t like it but because I’m afraid once I go down that path forever would it dominate my destiny. I’m certain I would fall in love with Matt Smith. I’ve written before, "Doctor Who" is like getting into Frank Zappa, it’s a huge rabbit hole I don’t want to fall into BUT the Whoniverse is part of my beat so I keep abreast of it’s goings on and I had my fingers crossed the 12th doctor would be big shake-up. It wasn’t and it bothers me.

Kleefeld's Fanthropology!

If you visited YouTube this week, you may have noticed that they've changed their logo a bit. They've added a "Geek Week" tag on the end of it. Between August 4-10, they're spotlighting a number of geek themed channels, with each day focusing a little more narrowly on a more particular theme. Monday was "Global Geekery" looking at international videos, "Braniac Tuesday" highlighted science related pieces, and so on. Further, YouTube went out of their way to film a series of three-ish minute videos introducing each day's motif, using a variety of hosts who have their own fairly popular YouTube channels.

Doctor-Who_11-doctors

By Katherine Erlikh, Cecelia Grey, Amber Lena

On Sunday, the world finally learned the answer to to one of humanity's most burning questions in recent times; just who will be playing the 12th Doctor? While Peter Capaldi was received with mixed reactions, those who were holding out for a female or non-white actor in the role experienced a very particular kind of disappointment. This disappointment quickly turned into annoyance and even anger for some as showrunner Steven Moffat's discouraging comments began to make their way around the Internet. In response to Dame Helen Mirren's cries for a leading Time Lady, Moffat had this to say: "Well, I'd like to see a man play The Queen." He later remarked that women in particular don't want a female lead.

Three of MTV Geek's resident geek girl bloggers sat down for a round-table discussion about the matter and examined the pros and cons of having a female Doctor.
