People need to stop saying that it’s all right that the Doctor bestowed the identity of “Amy Williams” onto Amy in this episode “because that was the Doctor’s way of acknowledging that Amy’s a different person now”. THAT’S WHY IT’S PROBLEMATIC. The fact that “Amy Williams” — a name she rejected, a name which she was expected by the patriarchy to take as a hangover from the days when women were literally considered the property of their fathers/husbands — is the name that THE DOCTOR chooses for her as an adult IS SO FUCKED UP AND PROBLEMATIC. IT’S THE SYMBOLISM THAT MAKES IT PROBLEMATIC, NOT THE NAME ITSELF.
Oh, and for the record? No, the Doctor did not choose the name “Amy Pond” for Amy. That’s the name that Amy chose for herself — as a way of REJECTING his favoured name for her (which was Amelia Pond). The fact that Amy is now supposed to reject the identity which she CONSTRUCTED FOR HERSELF in favour of adopting the identity which the patriarchy, Rory, and the Doctor expect her to adopt and that this is associated with and symbolic of the idea that she’s now a grown-up (because “growing up” means capitulating to the demands of the patriarchy) — and which is tied up in the episode with her leaving the Tardis (leaving the life she wanted) against her will and at the Doctor’s behest to live Rory’s dream life IS REALLY FUCKED UP.
In short: YOU ALL NEED TO STOP TELLING PEOPLE NOT TO BE ANGRY AND ~EXPLAINING~ THAT IT’S OK BECAUSE IT’S SYMBOLIC OF AMY ~GROWING UP AND SETTLING INTO HER IDENTITY AS A WIFE AND MOTHER~ — AN IDENTITY SHE NEVER ACTUALLY WANTED OR ASKED FOR, AND WHICH SHE WAS FORCED INTO BY THE NARRATIVE OF THE SHOW. BECAUSE THAT’S WHY PEOPLE ARE ANGRY.
