Just found out that in Elementary, Irene Adler is also Moriarty
And apparently this makes this version of Irene Adler better than Sherlock’s Irene Adler because it makes her more idependent.
I haven’t watched Elementary. I refused to watch it because of A. It’s a stolen idea they stole from the BBC (and yes it does seem like they made it their own, but still it was only made because of the success of Sherlock and that pisses me off). And B. Watson is a woman. (yes this bothers me and not for a sexist/misogynist reason but actually a feminist reason).
Now it looks like Moriarty is a woman too! And Irene Adler! At the same time!
Screw it all.
People think this is awesome. We got strong awesome female characters in t.v shows! Woo!
No, no, NO.
It’s a trap!!
I’d rather have Moriarty and Watson, even Irene, HELL have an entire male cast with the exception of one character than what Elementary is, if that exception is Sherlock.
Sherlock being a woman TRUMPS everything else.
Because SHERLOCK is the hero.
Irene is the love interest (will and always will be). Watson is the sidekick/partner (will and always will be, no matter how many times she saves Sherlock). Moriarty is the villain (will and always will be).
Making them women is meaningless!!!!
It doesn’t change anything. It still limits what roles a woman can play.
And why why WHYYYYY is it that supposedly the strongest, most kick-assery, independent female characters in mainstream entertainment are evil. Why is it that it’s awesome that Moriarty is a woman? Or the Black Widow was a former assassin? Or Catwoman a thief (hell all the female characters in Dark Knight Rises were bad to some degree)?
No. No. No.
I will never be satisfied or happy until there is a female equivalent of Sherlock, Doctor Who, Superman, Batman, etc.
when people start putting themselves down a lot i get really annoyed. i dont know if its just me that gets annoyed or other people too but it really just irks me. like its understandable sometimes because we all have our insecurities but when there’s that one person that talks about how they dont like their this or that every single fucking day there is a chance i will never even bother to talk to you ever again
I’m so tired of this, there’s so much negativity on my dash lately.
Does Moffat needs criticism? Yes.
Are his episodes sexist? Sometimes.
Is it important to point it out? Yes!
Is Moffat way over his head? Yes.
Am I angry that he doesn’t respect characters that are not his? Yes.
Does this give anyone the right to shame people who like his era? NO!

Reason For Roleplaying
Okay. I think something here needs to be said. When you people suddenly decide that you won’t really be needed here, and that everyone would be better without you, and keep comparing yourself to others, it is actually rather insulting to the people who care about you. I know that’s not your intention, but it’s what happens regardless. You are basically walking on everyone else’s feelings and saying they don’t matter. Those people who care about you and like seeing you here. That’s why I do my best not to compare myself to others, or if I do, I don’t let it stop me. I chose to roleplay my character because I love him. And whether I think I’m as good as some of the other people I see who roleplay the same character or not, I’m going to keep roleplaying him because I still love my character. I don’t really give a shit if someone else is better than me. I didn’t start roleplaying to be better than everyone else. I started roleplaying because I love my character, and that is all. So quit overcomplicating everything people. I have the same doubts and fears and feelings as all of you as far as this sort of thing goes, but I haven’t forgotten why I started roleplaying, which is why roleplaying has never stopped being fun for me. Consider other people before suddenly just making the decision you are not needed. If someone wants you to stay, don’t fucking argue and tell them that they will be fine without you. It’s hurtful and insulting even though you don’t mean it to be. And I’m sorry this sounded a bit more mean than I intended, but it’s still the honest truth. Everyone here started roleplaying because they love their characters. Not to be better than anyone else. Roleplaying was and is fun because of that love we have for our characters. So keep it simple. Keep it about that. And quit overcomplicating things. Please.
it’s not about you “not being echelon” because you don’t like the new album. it’s not about Jared “calling you names”. it’s not about you being disappointed or disenchanted. it’s not about you losing interest in or respect for them. it’s about you ruining everything with your negativity for those who are actually in love with the new album and excited about the new era. stop being so selfish! you are free to state your opinion but learn how to do it in a sophisticated way without causing any trouble. also, take responsibility for your words and put your name under it.
i’m all for gender equality
feminism does not mean that women are better than men. feminism is striving for equal rights.
so to some of you “feminists” - stop being a dick and stop making me feel bad because i have one. i am not every other male in the world. to say all men do something misogynistic, or even most, is generalising a stereotype.
and guess what
THAT’S MOTHERFUCKING SEXISM
I am an Independant who has voted for Obama the past two elections. I lean heavily left, but if someone were to come along from the right who actually had a comprehensive vision for the country I would certainly look at what they had to say. If I were to venture a guess I would say my followers/people I follow are about 60/40 or maybe even 70/30 Democrat to Republican. Having said that I think it is so cute when I see these Obama memes about how he has lied to the country or, gasp!, has changed positions. He is a fucking politician. Name me one president in this country’s history that has kept every single campaign promise. What’s that? Or, right, there aren’t any. Do I agree with everything that is going on in the country right now that the president actually has some control over? No. Do I wish that he would not only be more aggressive but also maybe get some fucking cooperation from Republicans who are seemingly hell-bent on just blocking every fucking thing he is trying to do? Yes. Until people understand that the president doesn’t actually control everything that goes on in this fucking country and that we are beholden to a limp dick congress and special interests just shut the fuck up.
