And then John's face!

They love to take long baths together. They stay in the water until it’s nearly cold. Sherlock likes to sit between John’s legs, with his back against John’s chest, while John is washing his hair. Sometimes he falls asleep, while John is massaging the shaampo in his hair slowly. And then John paints Sherlock’s face with foam, chuckles quietly and secretly takes a picture.

Hi so uh I'm kinda late but I was reading one of the other anons and they said "just because the artist is white doesn't mean the design or colors are racist" or something to that effect. I remember the incident y'all keep referring to but it kinda sounds like they don't know why it was considered racist so maybe explaining that would calm people down? Idk just a little suggestion cuz this kind of fighting sucks. Also good job on calling out all that racism!! A lot of people won't and I'm proud

SURE.

Midnigtartist (I’m not linking to them because I don’t feel they deserve to be dragged into the drama) created a series of the revolutionary set shirtless with battle scars. John and Alex were both facing the camera, had pretty standard scars. Laf’s face wasn’t shown, and the scars were on his back, and it resembled a whipping pattern, as if he were a slave who had been whipped. 

Here is the exchange:

Afterwards, she took my (and another follower who I won’t drag into the drama) advice and created a new pic of Laf that was much better. 

If you (not you anon, collective you) can’t see what’s racist about drawing the black character without his face showing and what resembles a whip pattern on his back… 

And I’m sure the artist did not set out to make the image that way. That’s the scary part. It’s so embedded in our collective unconscious to show black bodies this way, and not even think about it…. That frightens me. 

FWIW, I did The Husband Test with the original pic of Laf. The Husband Test is where I show my Hamilton-clueless husband the pic with no context, no explanation and I said “What does this look like?” and he instantly said “Slavery.” And if my white male cis hetero husband can see that instantly…

So, that is the tale of how my immature, shitty person self meanly called out an artist for creating racist content. :D The end. 

“…Your wife is a spy. That’s right. Her real name is Rosamund Mary Greta Bengtsdotter. Swedish by birth and probably the most dangerous spy in the world. She’s been operating deep undercover for the past four years now as your wife, for one reason only…“
