big bang friday

The thing is that TV shows are not real life. If you have a TV character that is asexual, you have assumed a level or responsibility in representing them a certain way. Every joke about Sheldon’s asexuality is a conscious choice to be included in the script. 

Everything in a TV show means something, whereas in real life things are a lot more random and disconnected. Each 22-minute episode is a compilation of deliberate choices. 

So if Sheldon’s asexuality is treated as a joke, that’s a deliberate choice the writers are making. And that’s not okay.
