Do you think a Time Lord can regenerate into a non-cisgender person?

I have a lot of ~feels~ about Gallifreyans and gender actually. 

I used to think in a very human perspective, which is that if the Doctor ever did regenerate as a “female” he would still feel like a dude ‘cause that’s his gender identity, you know? 

But watching The Doctor’s Wife made me question that idea because to me it almost seemed like a) changing into another gender wasn’t that uncommon and b) it wasn’t a big deal and they just went along with it. 

I’d say there’d always be a possibility (or well, was) for a Time Lord/Time Lady to regenerate into a non-cis person, but those are still human terms and there’s no clear indication of how Gallifreyans saw gender.

  2. aceinnatailsuit said: I got the feeling from that that Time Lords could change, but had some control over it. The Doctor’s pretty male identified, so that’s why he’s had only male bodies. If he regenerated into a female body, I’d expect him to still identify as male…

    > but that “I’m a girl!” comment kinda made me think that he does feel like a guy, but yes, I do agree with everything...
