I went there at a time when you could go. My parents wouldn’t have been able to afford to send me to university or art school. And I went at a time you got a grant to go there.
It may sound nightmarish to some people now, but the government paid for you to be educated, because they believed it was a civic responsibility. And I certainly would not be here, being Doctor Who, if they hadn’t done that.
So I find it alarming that we live in an age where it doesn’t work like that any more. That we don’t think as a society, it is worthwhile paying to help people be educated, and become the best they can be."

Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner. Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.” And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.”
