Get away from my sherlolly with your faux feminism
We are not offended at what happened to Molly. She is not a damsel in distress or a love interest. Stop being offended for us. Take your salty ass somewhere else. Molly Hooper DOES have a life outside of Sherlock and her love for him. Molly is accomplished in her career, she’s intelligent and competent and has many meaningful relationships in her life. Her blog talks about several of her close friends. She was close enough to the Watsons to be named godmother to their daughter. She has a very active dating life and while Sherlock was away, knowing the entire time that he was alive and after he’d just made a pretty big confession that would’ve left anyone else hanging onto with hope (“you do count”), Queen Molly Hooper went and got herself a cute boyfriend and nearly married him. Molly’s life does NOT revolve around Sherlock. You only have to listen to the beginning of their phone call to realize that she’s not always at his beck and call. However, Molly IS in love with Sherlock and it’s not degrading or insulting to feminism or whatever the fuck you people want us to be pressed about to give a female character a love life. In the context of Molly’s relation to Sherlock, yes the main plot is that she’s in love with him. But as much as I would love a show about Molly and all the badass things she does as a doctor and her going on dates and having drinks with the girls, what we know about Molly falls in the context of the place she has in Sherlock’s life. Being a love interest is only insulting when that’s ALL a female character is. And Molly Hooper is a fucking badass bitch in every aspect of her life and if y'all had spent less time complaining about her existence and more time paying attention, you would already know that. So please, get the fuck outta here with your fake concern. We’re doing just fine.
