Apparantly this statue is/was where I live (Ghent). It's supposed to symbolize the mess we've made of our planet, so badly that even angels need gas masks when descending down to earth.   
   
 Maybe I'll visit tomorrow

It's a piece of art, so I doubt it's been there for long. Also, it's located in the more touristical part of the city, where I hardly ever go. And last but not least, I just study there, so I didn't actually grow up in Ghent ;)

Yeah, but that's in Doornik (Tournai) apparantly. The one in Ghent (maybe it's the same one, I don't know) should be somewhere around the Augustijnen Monastery based on the pictures I've seen. Dutch btw?

So what you're saying is people aren't allowed to associate things with different things... You were never the brightest spoon in the dumpster, were you? Suppose you saw a picture of bubbles that happened to look like asscheeks. I'd post it but admin and his legion of orange assholes would probably rape me. Someone comments, "Haha, butts." And you roll in saying. "or maybe it's just some bubbles that absolutely nothing to do with butts you ******* assfags." Then you're just a ****** troll. But in this situation, you're ermehgerd so clever. Honestly, you're a sack of ****.

TL;DR I'm rather butthurt and I think he's a ******.

First off, everyone on tumblr watches a show on the BBC. Or Supernatural. It's to be expected that they'll make the comparison, because as we all know...

Secondly, no one on tumblr has any self control whatsoever.

And finally, that's one uber-specific statue. I'd be tempted to make a dr who joke about it.

yeah well people are flaming about how whovians are obnoxious and such.

This is Doctor who content based in a doctor who channel... that just happened to be a popular post. I don't think it deserves as much flak as it is getting as the content was mostly pointed towards whovians in the first place.

No need to be a sarcastic douche seeing that we were on the same page. (other than you completely missed the point i was making)

In truth, I'm a whovian.
I'd love to have made the joke in the content.
However, all I was trying to say is why the joke was made, and be funny at the same time. And obviously, at least 27 people thought it was funny/true.

Again, if I was being douchey, I apologize.

Every fandom has its extremists, it just seems like the DW fans have an abnormally high percentage of them. They go pound for pound with extremist bronies, except there's more of them. I enjoy geek culture, but DW fans who indulge in the counter culture to the point of exclusion and combativeness have completely eliminated whatever desire I once had to watch the show.

I agree with you, I really enjoy the show, but **** the fandom is on bronylevel bad sometimes...

It's alright if you find something (like this gasmask statue) that really fits with the franchise, to make a joke.
But, and this goes for any fandom, keep your fandom, to your fandom, don't mix it with all the other stuff, dont randomly associate it with complete irrelevant things, this is why people hate fandoms, one thing is it simply being annoying, another is that it potentially keeps people from watching a show.
By being obnoxious, you ruin the reputation of the series AND the people who watch it.
"Oh, but how can the fans reaction hurt the show hurr durr hurr"

If people associate the show with immature, overreactive tumblr fandom, they're gonna think that the show is for that type of people, that they are who the show cater to, whether that is right or wrong.
