I hate those arguments about how johnlock (BBC Sherlock) is more “revolutionary” than joanlock (Elementary) because they dismiss joanlock as “the same old shit” for being a “straight” relationship vs johnlock’s “gay” relationship and completely ignore that Joan is a WOC and an interracial “straight” relationship is different from a romance between a white woman and a white man.
East Asian women in (what society sees as) man/woman relationships in media is very different from white man/woman relationships. Many of these romances fetishize EA women and rely on racist tropes or turn them into racist caricatures through the “dragon lady” or “submissive doll” stereotypes.
Joan Watson is not (from what I’ve noticed anyway) like this. The friendship between her and Holmes doesn’t make her into less of a person and a potential romance between them isn’t going to do that either.
A complex friendship between an East Asian woman and a white man where the East Asian woman is not fetishized is rare. You can’t dismiss joanlock for not being “revolutionary” when EA women have very few opportunities to see ourselves in any sort of relationship on screen where we are not dehumanized/sexualized/etc.
Yeah, m/m relationships in media are important. But you can’t call a ship between two underdeveloped white male characters “revolutionary” while dismissing a non-fetishistic relationship between a Chinese woman and her best friend as “the same old shit”.

worrying about friends who’re socializing with people who hold similar opinions to or are direct supporters of the alt-right yet havent talked to them in ages so what they believe isn’t really any of my business but still concerned that they’re getting caught up with the wrong people and wanna say something but worry that what i say might come off as disingenuous or trying to sway them
