Even in “Scandal”, Holmes is gay
A Scandal in Bohemia
Holmes about Irene Adler: Oh, she has turned all the men’s heads down in that part. She is the daintiest thing under a bonnet on this planet. So say the Serpentine-mews, to a man.
This is important: he has never seen her: he is only quoting somebody else. So please do not come with “the woman” here… Especially as her fiancee is described very flatteringly by Holmes after he has seen him – and twice:
Holmes about Godfrey Norton: He is dark, handsome, and dashing
Still about him: He was a remarkably handsome man, dark, aquiline, and moustached
Two important conclusions can be drawn: Holmes appreciates Mr Norton’s beauty, but not Irene Adler’s. And Holmes likes moustaches.
