if you absolutely refuse to accept that sherlock holmes in the bbc adaptation is gay (or at the very least completely not heterosexual) because you feel ‘betrayed’, because you think this cool, badass, clever iconic character shouldn’t be ‘all about his sexuality’ (when surprise: he’s not) then you don’t fucking deserve him
#relevant also for john watson#or any iconic character#if you feel you can’t ‘connect’ anymore with a fictional character because they are not heterosexual#then damn son you need to get the fuck away from me because i snap your trachea in two
Thank you Shinka!
Also character’s sexuality does not change who they are as fucking people. Sherlock being gay and John being bi does not stop them from being Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. It does not make them lesser or incapable of being bad ass or whatever.
If thats what you think, then yeah…you need to just get the fuck out. Go find a show where everyone is straight and banging each other. You’ll be much happier there.
What if Charles Magnussen had opened up the ‘vault’ for Sherlock and instead of a single chair there was a table with this on it
