really though

if breasts, butts and legs are so distracting to men, to the point they cant function

why aren’t they that distracting to lesbians

and at that point

why isn’t the penis bulge and legs not distracting enough to gay men to warrant men being put under the same dress codes

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

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

It’s amazing to me how many people will say they like female characters, and they do! They like a lot of female characters. Even typically “unlikable” or antiheroic ones with lots of negative qualities. UNTIL that female character does something that shows she is NOT A DOORMAT for a “more important” male character.

A female character who does not drop everything in her own life to care for HIS emotional needs 24/7, who dares to not show 100% sympathy or 100% approval for everything he does, etcetera, etcetera. It’s actually hard to pick up on because a lot of people will *still* like the female character who is bitchy to other women or unsympathetic men, or like her when she is acting “unsympathetic” in a way that benefits the “hero”— but turn on her when she is anything but subservient to the “hero.”

It may look obvious, but often times it doesn’t sound that way.

by all means call out john green on his bullshit don’t stand for one bit of it but while you’re at it don’t throw the 13 year old girls who read his books under the bus with him for crying over fictional boys and photoshopping flower crowns onto things and blogging about their social anxiety protect them at all fucking costs

Anonymous asked: why does everyone hate the fault in our stars thing with thw boy and the cigaratte? I don't understand what's bad about it.

Because it’s the most pretentious, douchey, shit-headed thing for someone to spend 5.75 on a pack of goddamn cigarettes and not even bother to smoke them for the sake of some dumb-idiot metaphor that doesn’t even make sense.  And to do it in front of someone who’s had cancer spread to their lungs?  Yeah, no, fuck that guy.  

Of course, that’s how his character was written; he’s supposed to be a pretentious douche.  I just think written on paper it makes everyone think, “oh my god wow he’s so profound yes ily” but then they hear the words spoken in real life by an actor portraying his character correctly and people realize, “holy cow, this guy’s an asshole."  Good on you, John Green.
