Steven Moffat Explains Why He’s So Bad At Writing Women

I remember seeing this quote a while back. He wasn’t actually responding to him being bad at writing women, but this explains so many things…


“There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands. The world is vastly counted in favour of men at every level - except if you live in a civilised country and you’re sort of educated and middle-class, because then you’re almost certainly junior in your relationship and in a state of permanent, crippled apology. Your preferences are routinely mocked. There’s a huge, unfortunate lack of respect for anything male.”

…this is making me not want to watch my favourite TV show. Thanks, Moffat, you misogynistic, racist, classist, dickfuck.

 ”huge, unfortunate lack of respect for anything male”?!

Do the reverse sexism mambo! What an heterosexist douchefuck.

Maybe your preferences are routinely mocked because they’re mockable and stupid. And maybe this only happens to men who have 10-year-old tastes at 30. Kind of the way Steve from Coupling has that thing with lesbians, which is completely mockable. Not because it’s silly for men to get off on faux-lesbian porn, but because his obsession with it is at the level of a pre-pubescent boy. When you spread your ID all over television, dude, don’t fucking whine when the world points and laughs.

    Sounds like the people who assume a mail-order is better because they come from “traditional” countries where men are still king. All while never having lived in one of such countries or understanding the gender dynamics there.

    He’s making an ass of our gender.

    Hear hear…

    I’ve written this piece of analysis on how Moffat’s misogyny is messing with the show, and I thought it might be of interest…

    I admire Moffat’s ability to make both men and women look equally rubbish, albeit in different ways. He’s not just sexist, but misanthropic. There were some great actors in Coupling, but whenever I meet anyone like the actual characters, I just think “please, get some therapy instead of taking this shit out on me”. There’s no denying they exist, but why would I want to watch them on TV when in real life I avoid them like the plague? Whinge whinge, I know, but this man makes me cross.
