A new genderqueer role model?

One of the many brilliant things about Doctor Who is the fact Time Lords don’t care one way or another about sex and gender, they just pick a body that suits them.

This post on the BoingBoing Instagram feed further muddies the water, gender wise, and gives genderqueers a new role model!

While there’s considerable noise been made about making The Doctor female, I’m not a fan of that idea. But there’s plenty of alternatives, including Missy (A.K.A. The Master), played by Michelle Gomez, and The General, played originally by Ken Bones, now by T’Nia Miller.

(Disclaimer, I’ve been a fan since 1979)

Have your say! :D
