Doctor Who writer Gareth Roberts is under fire for transpobia


The writer, who penned six episodes of the sci-fi series and ten for spin-off Sarah Jane Adventures tweeted: “I [love] how trannies choose names like Munroe, Paris and Chelsea. It’s never Julie [and what about Julia Serano, American writer, trans activist, and biologist? Just for example. – GNE] or Bev [Monica Beverly Hillz is an American drag queen, reality television personality, and trans activist, originally known for appearing on season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, can be named Bev. Does it count? – GNE] is it? It’s almost like a clueless gayboy’s idea of a glamorous lady. But of course it’s definitely not that.” As the writer was slammed, he accused his readers of a ‘rainbow cult’. The writer mocked a critic on Twitter who planned to complain to the BBC, which airs Doctor Who, saying: “I have never been an employee of the BBC. Also, sod off.”
