Martha Jones is a black female doctor who Shakespare wrote sonnets about she saved the world using a spell from Harry Potter and then she traveled the world and saved it from the master and she didn’t need something magical about her to save the world
So please explain to me why you hate martha
Because the only real reason Martha sticks around is to see if the Doctor will develop feelings for her. Even after he tells her he’s not interested in that at all. Even though he’s so obviously still in immense pain after Rose. And even though she basically swears that she won’t try to be involved with him on a higher level than friendship. Meaning that we spend the whole season with Martha being all ‘unrequited love’ and making sad faces at the Doctor when he’s not looking. Martha is in that mythical ‘friend-zone’, and she won’t let us forget it. And because it just felt like, to me, she wasn’t a character of her own. The little quirky things she had were nothing compared to Rose or Donna. Her entire story arch was ‘I’m in love with the Doctor and sigh he’ll never know’ and to me that made her seem weaker than the others. It made me want to shake her, to say ‘you know you can have better than this, you are suffering for no reason, you can still turn around’. Also, Martha’s only other plot was ‘my parents are divorced and my mum is suspicious of you’, and to me, that just seemed of little importance at all. Rose was bored, Rose was afraid of living her life the same way until the day she died. Rose was the average early twenties person. They tried to make Martha strong in that she was a doctor and that she had this family to manage but her problems weren’t something I could relate to. She could have lived her life. And then there was Donna, who was probably more lost than Rose was. So, gah, idk, I just thought Martha was forced, too stretched out, too physically uncomfortable and frustrating to watch. The only good thing was when she realised that being with the Doctor was actually damaging her, and turning her back was the best thing for her, something I personally feel like she could have realised a lot earlier on.

As people are starting to note…anti-choice people are not pro-life. They are just pro-enslaving-enslaving-women’s-bodies-so-they-pop-out-tons-of-babies and once the baby is out- screw you.
