I think it’s interesting that Sherlock doesn’t talk more about how disgusting and vile men can be. Like, he knows intimately how affected Kitty was by the abuse and torture she went though. I don’t know how many episodes there have been where he has found women locked up and being kept as sex slaves. He has encountered MANY vile men in his day to day crime solving. The worst woman he has encountered was probably Moriarty but even she has her own kind of moral code. He probably considers the worst women he has ever met to be that lady who worked for the neonicotinoid company. And he surrounds himself with women for the most part. Joan. Kitty. Fiona. Ms. Hudson. He seems to be more partial to women then men just from his behavior. Which may have to do with his horrible relationship with his father and his fond memories of his mother. He also has a tenuous relationship with mycroft as well, which I think generally stems from Sherlock having to live with him and his father when his mother died. He didn’t like having to live with two other men. And who are the good men in Sherlock’s life? Marcus and Gregson. That’s it.
You would just think that these kind of experiences would really make him have strong feelings toward men who abuse women (or anyone really). Sherlock does show this, but not to the degree I would expect from someone who has had awful encounters with men for pretty much his entire life.
I honestly don’t know what my point is, I was just thinking about this a lot.

“I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough, so it gets really frustrating.”
“I feel…okay. I feel clear about something. Our work, what we do … it’s not just a job now. It’s who I am. I’m a detective. I’m ready to embrace that. I live in this world. Your world. And I probably will for the rest of my life. ”
