i can’t really speak for eda canon

but regenerating into different sexes i dont think is intended to be nonbinary. like the doctor talks about his maleness so much that i think he has always identified himself as male 

well the doctor’s also been a woman in big finish, at which point they no longer considered themselves male anymore. plus the doc mentions multiple times in the edas he isn’t a man, at which point all the other characters decide it’s time to argue about that; which is probably why they just use the most common pronouns for w/e their sex *’appears’ to be at the time

so while i guess you could interpret it that the doctor isn’t nonbinary (bit of a stretch though), there’s also nothing at all which suggests the doctor isn’t nonbinary, except for ‘cis until proven otherwise’ which is bullcrap

(*ugh that’s a gross sentence, couldn’t find a better way to word it, i’m trans myself so just let me apologize in advance and condemn now any cissexist nonsense that could be taken from that statement)

nonno i’m not saying the whole cis until proven otherwise thing. sorry if you took it that way. its just i consider myself nonbinary and the ‘representation’ that everybody says is in doctor who, just plain isn’t there.

in the context of doctor who, its not much of a progressive show and i think many of the writers have a cis-only mindset - thus no nonbinary doctor.

and i don’t really know how eu books and comics are canon either? i’ve asked people and i haven’t gotten a proper answer. 

i don’t see the doctor saying he’s not a man he’s an alien to mean that he’s nonbinary, it feels way too vague

no its just?? i dont think anyone intended for it to be canon?? yes fans can interpret it that way but idk.

honestly i don’t have enough faith in doctor who to think it can be that progressive

a couple of the eda writers are queer folks, and that’s why fitz is bi & the doc’s canonly queer in them (being romantically involved with alan turing, dating that dude karl) and plus it’s been confirmed more than once in nuwho (and it was also canon in classic who) that time lords can regen to different sexes, so i do think it was intended to be canon

i think nonbinary doctor who is cool also but its not canon all and i really don’t see why people are convinced its canon

it is canon tho

that post is the reason i made my post

none of those really confirm anything and they just sort people interpreting stuff into their own headcanons. its just kind of disappointed bc thats not nonbinary representation at all to me

it’s shitty representation, just like the doctor’s canon queerness is shitty representation too, but that doesn’t make it any less canon

no its just?? i dont think anyone intended for it to be canon?? yes fans can interpret it that way but idk.
