My female villains are all so different!! But they all wear black clothes, dark lipstick and up-dos. Why waste time in characterization when their looks can tell all you need to know? I mean you don’t want them being more than stereotypes, that would be so confusing to the audience!
Oh yes, by all means, let’s judge female characters based on how they dress and how they do their hair. Well done! Surely their motivation and role in the storytelling must be identical to one another if they all have up-dos.
Rubbish, rubbish, shallow rubbish analysis.
If there are aspects of the actual writing to support the case, present it. Otherwise you are falling for the oldest trap in the world. Neither women (nor men) can be evaluated purely by outward appearances, nor should they ever be—fictional or not.
Besides: female executive producers, female cinematographer, female editor, female hair stylists, female makeup artists, female costume supervisors, female actors, but yeah… they apparently had no part in creating the look of these characters.
Whatever. Those who accuse Moffat of sexism may actually have a point, but this straw man argument does nothing to support that point.
