I don't think he's a troll. Not the usual kind at least.

The alternative is that he's someone with an eating disorder (about which he lies frequently) and a Messiah complex. One who can't form a coherent thought. That's actually scarier.

When I have very interesting conversations and discussions with people in the streets of Israel, I honestly recognize that I am a social provocateur.
But I'm not a negative social provocateur.
I am a positive social provocateur.
And the trolls are those who believe that I'm a troll in this great thread.
These people are not able just to do good to other people through active positive social provocations.

If you want - I can regenerate you into a woman in 1st day of my eating period after 42 days of my freedom from eating.

Here's Gregory in Russian talking about his diet.
It is true.
I have some lectures in YouTube about my great eating lifestyle "42/7".
For example this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QJG4Fesq4U&t=3s

I hear all this fuss about the new time traveling female lead of a major sci-fi franchise and I'm all like...



Welcome to the club Dr. Who fans, but stop acting like this is the second coming of Christ and Jesus came back female.

Yeah, people with small penises have to believe such rubbish in order to be able to live with themselves and the disappointment of their (very few) lovers.

The rest of us don't.

You forgot the furor that propped up when they announced that Katee Sackhoff was cast as Starbuck in the BSG reboot. Then it aired, the stories were generally awesome, Katee was(is) hot, and everyone forgot about it. Same will happen here.

I don't care about who plays Dr. Who (although I wouldn't have been adverse to a longer run for either Eccleston or Capaldi) - I just want good stories.

Funny what happens when good writers put the story ahead of "who has a penis?" considerations.

How often has The Doctor's gender been a factor in past stories anyway? I suspect you could reshoot all the first Doctor's adventures with Maggie Smith as The Doctor without needing much in the way of rewrites.

You know, that's a fun idea. Who would all y'all pick to play a female Doctor in a reshoot of the Tom Baker years?

Not too hard a job... my dad took care of that by giving me an X chromosome.
