So, your point here is to basically criticize every single thing that you think is wrong with Steven Moffat’s writing? And make it seem that Moffat is sexist with every character? Everyone has flaws, EVEN WOMEN. Just because Moffat has written the characters as having weaknesses, it does not make him sexist!

I mean, no offence, but you really must be.
We don’t just criticise Moffat though he is the focus of this particular blog. We analyse and criticise other characters, other writers, and other shows, but yeah, it will always tie back to Moffat. Moffat, at this moment in time, is in a position of power on popular television. He’s running a 50 year old TV show that has influenced several generations of sci-fi fans along with a relatively new adaptation of a 130 year old character who has been loved for just as long. Sure, everyone has flaws, but Moffat is in a place where his flaws will have an impact.
We’re not looking for sexism, racism, etc. It’s there and we’re merely pointing it out. Yes, we’re aware ~even women~ have flaws, but they’re not in Moffat’s position, now are they? Moffat doesn’t just ~write characters~, he has ‘strong female character’ templates with stereotypical weaknesses and stereotypical strengths attached to stereotypical personalities and that’s what makes him sexist.
I really don’t understand the mentality of never criticising anything you love and having to love every person behind a show you like.
