jenna said clara and river respect each other a lot so that means they’re gonna kiss right
There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”
Honestly, the best ever.
This is what happens when Fangirls get out in public lol

Can I just… ok so.
1) This is a good kiss. The Doctor has plenty warning to pull away or indicate the kiss is unwanted. It’s non-romantic, but it’s completely consensual.
2) Bit iffy. While it’s not a surprise kiss, and it looks fairly reciprocal, Rose is definitely in a vulnerable position and possibly not completely able to consent - she doesn’t remember it afterwards, after all. However slightly helped (in the viewer’s mind) by the fact she’d probably still consent if she were fully able to as well.
3) Surprise kiss, but one I’m strangely okay with. He requested a shock, and the kiss itself is not sexual or selfish. Could be a bit iffy from a narrative POV - why put it in in the first place? But in-universe, it’s clearly not done for selfish reasons.
4) Surprise kiss, not as great. I don’t particularly blame the Doctor, he apologised, he had to do it, BUT it’s still invasive and no time to give consent, and from a narrative standpoint it’s completely unneccessary.
5) NO. This is sexual assault, hell, it’s attempted rape, even if there’s probably no way Amy could’ve successfullly raped the Doctor in this situation. It’s invasive and creepy and completely disregards him saying very clearly NO. Narratively sickening, and even in-universe is rather creepy.
6) Much better. They both lean into it, and while the Doctor is obviously a bit lost, he’s clearly enjoying it.
7) Somewhat invasive and not reciprocated, but this is clearly a kiss without sexual motives. This one doesn’t bother me so much because, despite the fact Rory doesn’t seem to happy about it, it’s not really him taking advantage or a selfish act, it’s an expression of joy. This is a fine line though, and a dangerous argument - MOSTLY it doesn’t bother me because it doesn’t carry the weight of the history of male/female exploitative sexual advances.
8) Back to the iffy. That’s just not a nice thing to do, and Clara is clearly not taking the Doctor’s wishes into question. Nor is she doing so when she stares at his ass and he’s clearly uncomfortable. Same as with Amy - just because it’s a woman doing it to a mann doesn’t make it ok.
This made me truly hate the Doctor. I was raging for over a week. He selfishly forces a married, lesbian woman into a vulnerable position, where she’s unable to resist him, and forcibly kisses her despite her clearly not being into it. And to make it worse, when she rightfully slaps him, it’s played for laughs. We’re supposed to sympathise with the Doctor and find it exciting/amusing, rather than Jenny and find it invasive/infuriating.
Should me noted that for Jenny, I would be a LOT more ok with it if it were done the same way as with Rory. Both time it’s a kiss of joy. But with Jenny it’s clearly sexual (esp based on the boner joke later), selfish, and deliberatedly putting her in a position unable to resist.
