#I love a lot of things about the way this show turned out but maybe the very best one is how joan is a watson with limits #I don’t think I’ve ever seen an adaptation where watson doesn’t sigh in exasperation and then put up with the abuse #from day zero she’s laying down rules #and she’s patient and forgiving and remarkably low-key #(anyone who wakes me up before my alarm clock on the regular is getting a knife to the face) #but she absolutely knows the difference between eccentricity and unreasonable behavior #and is utterly able and willing to enforce boundaries #and to call holmes out #repeatedly. #now that I think of it I don’t particularly find watson interesting or likeable in… any adaptation I’ve seen? #and suddenly you have a holmes/watson dynamic that’s actually played as equal #where 2/3rds of their interaction is negotiation #(the other 1/3rd is mutual appreciation society and it’s so much better because of the negotiations) #real friends don’t just love you #they also challenge you to become a better version of yourself #that’s the show.

The way Joan enforces limits is, for me, one of my favorite parts of her characterization.
pretty much all of this.
"The average prison sentence for men who kill their intimate partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their partners are sentenced, on average, 15 to 17 years. A pair of Maryland cases vividly illustrates this inequality in sentencing. In one case, a judge in Baltimore County, Maryland sentenced Kenneth Peacock to 18 months for killing his unfaithful wife. The very next day, another judge in the same county sentenced Patricia Ann Hawkins to three years in prison for killing her abusive husband. Significantly, the prosecutor in the Peacock case requested a sentence twice as long as the one imposed, while the prosecutor in the Hawkins case requested one-third of the sentence imposed.”
“As many as 90% of the women in prison today  for killing men had been battered by those men.”

try and tell me sexism isn’t real
Hold the phoneSo about that one song in Chicago
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is a lie.
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is just a phase.
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is childish.
I live and breath my gender fluidity. I proudly stand within the Gender Queers in support of a new, gender variant society.
Gender is the seed that has sprouted into the discriminatory, bigoted & bland society we live in. When you dig down deep into the issues surrounding the world right now it all comes back to one tiny little fuck up. The idea that biological sex somehow determines the gender roll of individuals is a lie. In fact, gender rolls is a lie. Just because I identify as gender fluid does not mean that I must uphold any societal expectation, associated with gender fluidity.
Plain and simple, I plan on having two children.
I will not teach my little boy to “be a man.”
I will not teach my little girl what it means to “be a woman.”
Instead, i’ll teach my children to just simply be good people.
Because a society full of good people makes for a better life than a society full of classified, judgmental, opinionated and shallow people.

YOU DISGUST ME
It’s not my job to make you a better man and I don’t give a shit if I’ve made you a better man. It’s not a fucking woman’s job to be consumed and invaded and spat out so that some fucking man can evolve.
My adorable kids slowly realizing they won’t be playing with daddy’s limited edition Frozen dolls.
That’s my favorite part about this.
