I just needed to reblog this again.
Because jfc, you don’t understand how important this scene is to me.
Or maybe you do!
Because it has Jack openly showing his affection and admiration for two people of different gender in the exact same way, making no difference at all, and neither do Rose nor the Doctor. Zilch. No hesitating, no flinching, no comic relief.
I wish it could be like this more often.
That scene up there is doing everything right, end of story. And while Jack’s sexuality is often made out to be something to smile at, it’s also shown as very natural and Nine was just cool with that, no reason not to be.
Acceptance: You’re doing it right.
I do think Doctor Who got this scene right, yes. I wish Rose had got an active statement, not ‘you’re worth fighting FOR’ but that’s a separate argument.
This had a huge impact on me as a closeted teenager, yes
When Aunt Sharon has to leave town, she employes a popular neighborhood nanny, Clara, to watch Amelia Pond. For the first time, a grown up believes her in raggedy doctor story, too.
