ok ew no.
I don’t agree with having a woman as watson but not because it takes away from the idea of the sherlock/watson sub-textual homo-eroticism.
It’s because Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote watson as a man and I’m so used to it it just doesn’t fit for me like this. that said, other people disagree with having a modern-day set Sherlock remake at all because to them that doesn’t fit.
these are relevant and normal opinions to have, because we get used to things being the way they were written
Now with that said, if you’re in the Sherlock Holmes fandon only for the gay undertones I think you need to reevaluate your views on what the series is about because there is so much more than two men running around in promiscuity.
we all know the true and only retelling of the story that deserves any credit
"This is why you can’t trust women! They’re so good at makeup and wear it to fool guys into thinking they’re hot!"
shit. girls he’s on to us *washes off makeup to reveal lizard face and climbs up a wall* we will return with a new disguise. soon the power of earthly men will fall
ppl who make fake tweets order extra mayonnaise on all their sandwiches and own Bucky Larson on dvd
television show idea:
men who relentlessly pursue people with inappropriate messages on ok cupid are forced to read everything they’ve said in front of a live studio audience.
when you say “stop slut shaming” you are literally saying “stop shaming those sluts” how do people nOT SEE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS
it’s about reclaiming the word
yeah i’m sure that 11 year old rape victim really appreciates you taking the incentive to do that for her

When someone asks adult male fans to be respectful of the fact that a show is primarily meant for the entertainment and enrichment of young girls and the response is, “No, but you don’t understand, this show is actually high quality,” that’s… pretty revealing.
White men: Why the rest of us can’t have nice things since basically ever.
Just because someone else likes something in a different way than you do, doesn’t mean they’re not allowed to like it.
Yeah. I got $50 for you if you can tell me where I said otherwise. Go ahead. My original post is right up there. It’s only one sentence long, so it shouldn’t take you long to go over it from top to bottom. If you can find where I said they shouldn’t like it or aren’t allowed to like it, I will Paypal you $50. Just, like, highlight it in bold or something. $50. Easy money.
Unless I didn’t say that.
Are they hurting you? No. Are they hurting anyone else? No. (And if they ever are, call them on their bullshit!)
I did! Thanks for giving me permission. Weird that you’re chewing me out for it now.
No, their tastes aren’t conventional
Right. And who said one word against that? Not me.
- but come on, we’re on TUMBLR here! Whose tastes ARE conventional? And who are we to call the shots on other people’s tastes?
And you know what else? They’re making the show WILDLY popular, inspiring wonderful merch we can buy at Hot Topic among other unlikely places, and boosting the ratings on every episode aired. They’re keeping the show going, too.
You know, there’s one word that you missed in the original post. One very important word. “Respectful”. I’m not telling them what to like or how to like, I’m suggesting they be respectful of the small children… the girls… who the show is intended for.
And you’re flipping your wig over that. That’s too much to ask, apparently? Which kind of proves my point.
Being respectful means: don’t crowd them out of spaces meant for them. Don’t flood their tags with adult material. Don’t take over contests and polls geared for children. Don’t assume ownership of the shows and characters.
The world is practically made out of shows aimed at teenage and young adult men. The world is made out of spaces that cater to them. Like whatever you like, but there is a huge dearth of shows that cater to young girls in the way that My Little Pony does, in a way that is not shaped by the expectations and views of men, in a way that upholds and uplifts them for themselves instead of as future accessories for men.
Whatever success bronies are contributing to the show doesn’t entitle them to… well, that’s really it. It doesn’t entitle them. They are not entitled. They feel entitled, but they aren’t.
So stfu about bronies already.
Weird thing here! I didn’t even say what show/fandom this post was about, but you knew. You knew. And you’re making this whole big post about how they do nothing wrong and they hurt no one, but you knew who I was complaining about.
Which is weird.
Well, not that weird.
date a boy who’s a wolf. not figuratively a wolf literally date a fucking wolf. wolves are strong and cute and have powerful jaws for crushing the bones of men who harass you on the street. wolves are better than men in every respect. have you ever seen a man kill an elk with his teeth, howl at the moon, run at speeds of 35 mph. wolves CANNOT call you slurs
I totally approve of you feminists french kissing this
french kissing a snarling wolf sounds infinitely hotter than having some whiny dude in a fedora stick his limp tongue in my mouth so i will take you up on that, actually

yeah it’s something like that
AAAAHHHHH, ALL THESE FEEEEEEEEELSSSSSSSSS
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
Thank you for saying this.
