Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.

Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)

And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”.  No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.

The Doctor wouldn’t.  He’d find another way.

and the thing is Moffat is 100% right because regardless of if he called himself “The Doctor” during the Time War he was still the Doctor deep deep down and in the end he saves lives, and he saved his people

"I lack the creativity to imagine characters being forced to make difficult choices, especially since my understanding of said characters is surface-deep at best. Sometimes I think about writing real emotional consequences to things, but then I remember how much easier it would be to avoid consequences whatsoever with some bizarre winding hole-filled plot. I am a professional writer who overcomes difficulty writing a scene by shoving in a contrived loophole so I don’t have to write it. Please punch me in the face."

The whole point of the Time War is that it was meant to be so massive and devastating and unimaginable, that it was the only thing that could bring the Doctor to do something so awful.

The reason it was never shown before: it was meant to be so bad that we couldn’t imagine it.  

But Steven Moffat decided to try and imagine it, and he admits that he failed.  So instead of leaving it alone, mysterious, seething and burning in the darkest recesses of our imaginations, he just changed it.

#why do they let him speak words  #i want you safe, my doctor. protected from the false god.

When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.

This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

This adaptation just never works for me, and I have tried. But Joan is condescending and cold, there is zero chemistry between her Watson and Holmes. The hour ‘primetime crime drama’ presentation feels lack lustre, spoon fed and uninventive. The casting choices, aside form Jonny Lee Miller, are not working out, and I love Rhys Ifans and Natalie Dormer. This scene is typical of Joan’s disdainful and patronising reaction to her Sherlock…no, just no.

I am sorry Sherlock fandom. But I haven’t seen bigger hypocrites than you people! You don’t watch the show, don’t like it, then don’t fucking write shit about it! How can you even have an ‘educated opinion’ on something you don’t follow? You people are so shallow it’s not even worth trying to tell you how beautifully put together this show is. Patronizing? Condescending? Cold? Why, because she is a woman who takes no shit from a man? Grow the fuck up! And no chemistry (!!!) - why, because no gay?

Are you fucking kidding me. The problem with the Sherlock fandom is that they’re used to a completely dysfunctional relationship between Holmes and Watson where Holmes is constantly lying to Watson and putting him in emotionally distressing situations and Watson either just takes that shit lying down or his reactions are used for comic relief. So when Joan doesn’t take any of Sherlock’s shit, in comparison with weak little John, she’s “patronising”. Of course, for anyone who actually watches Elementary, Joan isn’t “patronising”, she just knows when to stand up for herself and when to call Sherlock out on his bullshit. Joan and Sherlock’s relationship, unlike that of John and Sherlock, is perfectly balanced. Sherlock and Joan respect each other enough to call each other out on their bullshit and be completely honest instead of brooding around lying to each other. In this specific scene, Joan is trying to make a Sherlock – who’s been completely irrational throughout the whole episode – deal with the grief that is making him behave this way.

Of course we also have to take in consideration that BBC Sherlock lacks any strong female characters so its fandom has probably been somewhat brainwashed into being more misogynistic than the average human being and seeing a woman stand up for herself translates to “unacceptable”, “patronising”, and “bossy” in their brains.

Also, Joan and Sherlock’s chemistry is a purely platonic one, they are best friends who trust and understand each other and I wouldn’t have it any other way. To be perfectly honest, it would have been a real disappointment if the only purpose of a female John Watson had been so that a (straight) romantic relationship could be formed between Holmes and Watson.

P.S.: the “romance” between John and Sherlock is called queerbaiting, it’s not going to happen but I don’t doubt that they’ll keep stringing the Sherlock fandom along with vague suggestions and banter of it.

If only John Watson would call Sherlock on his shit, instead of suffering in silence for THREE seasons.  And it’s funny how everyone was A-OK with John punching Sherlock in the face, but the first three people are upset because Joan threw a plate to show the futility of breaking dishes.  But SHE’S “patronizing” and “cold” ? Yeah, OK. 

Hypocrites.   

The relationship between Joan and Sherlock is in my opinion the greatest relationship currently portrayed on TV.

The stuff above about how this is Joan calling Sherlock out on his bullshit is spot on. Because in both adaptations Holmes sometimes acts like a dick. The difference is that in Elementary Holmes is held accountable. And it is made entirely clear that his actions are not being condoned.

Conversely, we have Sherlock, where the titular character fakes an entire relationship and marriage proposal to a woman just to use her to enter a building.

Seriously, that happens. And he is never called out on it! John expresses mild distate immediately after realising. That’s it. Not only that, it is written so that there are LITERALLY NO NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES TO HIS ACTIONS. The woman is totally fine and just moves on. And don’t even think about telling me that that writing is an example of Moffat writing a ‘strong female character’, because the only reason she’s written like that is so that Sherlock’s actions are never questioned or held up to actual scrutiny. Sherlock is written as an abusive, manipulative asshole, but we’re supposed to love him, and laugh along with the terrible things he does.
