“This is why I love Cumberbatch as Sherlock. In our culture right now stupidity and especially male stupidity tends to be glorified. Everything is about dumbing down especially when it comes to portrayals of maleness. It’s like you can’t be a real man unless your entire life centers around the three Bs: beer, boobs and book-ignoring. Cumberbatch’s performance in Sherlock says eff that. It says the smartest guy in the room is also the sexiest guy in the room. Especially if he is already possibly the sexiest guy in the room anyway.”
