Hi there, I'm a big big fan of yours :). I have been thinking about the very first episode, when Sherlock and John come to the restaurant and Angelo says without hesitation to Sherlock, Anything for you and your date. I'm thinking that this is a confirmation that Angelo knows that Sherlock is gay, and that he might even have seen Sherlock with other dates, in the past. Because why else would he say something like that, with such confidence? Would be interesting to hear what you think! Cheers!

Most of the people who care about Sherlock say things like that. His brother and his landlady think he’s gay, and Mrs Hudson admits that he’s never been in a relationship to her knowledge, but she makes that assumption more than anyone. Why is that?

I’ve said this before, and I see others have suggested that it’s natural for people to assume someone like Sherlock is gay. 

Here’s the thing about that: straight people pretty much never assume someone who hasn’t expressed an explicit attraction to the opposite sex is gay. Unless a man fits the flamboyant, limp-wristed and lisping stereotype of a gay man (which Sherlock is not), straight people will 99.9% of the time not question their core assumption that everyone they meet is straight, and sometimes not even a stereotype will makes them twig. Exhibit A: there were people who were surprised to discover that Liberace was gay. 

This is heterosexism and it is rampant. It’s the reason why gay people have to keep coming out their whole lives, forever, every time they meet new people, because in the English-speaking world, people tend to assume that everyone is straight until they are forcibly corrected. That’s the reason why coming out is even a thing. It is intensely boring. Because of this reality, it seems unlikely to me that people like Angelo and Mrs Hudson are making entirely baseless assumptions about Sherlock’s sexual orientation. I mean this isn’t middle school. They would have had some evidence to behave with such certainty, and it would have had to have been some pretty blatant evidence.

as you are a fan of all things heist-y, what are your fave heist movies/tv shows/books?

  • THE OCEAN’S TRILOGY these movies are EVERYTHING. these movies are peak heist YES, EVEN TWELVE. where to even begin like… danny and rusty and their NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION, the entire team up to and including scott caan and casey affleck as super aggressive mormon brothers, don cheadle as the explosives expert IT’LL BE GOOD TO BE WORKING WITH PROPER VILLAINS AGAIN, crime legacy matt damon, and then they bring in TESS in the second one and then TERRY FUCKING BENEDICT in the third as a RELUCTANT TEAM UP???? ???? THIS BOUNTY OF HEIST CONVENTION RICHES there is honest to god nothing about these movies i don’t love i’ve seen them like five hundred times
  • to catch a thief!!! it’s my favourite hitchcock (wonder why…) and it’s Grace Kelly at her objective finest, wardrobe included. cary grant is cary grant and he lives in heaven aka the french riviera and he used to be a suave as shit cat thief but then war…. terrible war and he turned good and joined the resistance, but then the war finished and now it’s the 50′s and a copy cat thief is stealin old ladies jewels and stuff so cary gotta find em and protect his honor IT’S SUPER GOOD WATCH FOR THE SCENERY ALONE
  • ST TRINIANS. YOU THINK I’M JOKING BUT I AM IN NO WAY JOKING this is actually one of my favourite movies of all time. a bunch of most likely sociopathic teenage girls band together to save their ridiculous hogwarts lite british boarding school from being closed down by stealing GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING. colin firth and russell brand are also in this movie it’s honestly the greatest, it’s like if orange is the new black was about british boarding school and instead of being in prison they… rob museums
  • LEVERAGE, the best heist show
  • THE FAST AND FURIOUS MOVIES, particularly fast 5 WE’RE GONNA ROB THE RICHEST DRUG LORD IN RIO 
  • THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR this is like one of the sexiest movies EVER no joke. ok so super bored super cool pierce brosnan decides to steal a priceless work of art JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT (he’s a billionaire) (alright for some……) and rene russo is the elegant olivia pope fashion style insurance agent sent to try and find the painting…. she suspects him…. he fancies her….. the sexual tension is OUT OF THIS WORLD please watch this asap. and also it’s the first thing i think of when i hear the song ‘sinnerman’ by nina simone
  • the brothers bloom, it’s kind of like if wes anderson made a sad heist movie?
  • reservoir dogs. actually come to think of it most quentin tarantino movies have elements of the heist/caper genre so
  • the bank job and the italian job, i get them confused sometimes but the bank job is the one where jason statham is the main character and the italian job is the one where he’s a supporting character
  • firefly or, HEISTS IN SPACE
  • uhhhhhh the national treasure movies totally count. WE’RE GONNA STEAL THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE…. AND DOUSE IT IN LEMON JUICE
  • SUGAR AND SPICE omg if y’all haven’t seen this YOU NEED TO. it’s this quintessential late 90′s/early 00′s teen movie but the head cheerleader starts dating james marsden and becomes pregnant and her parents shun her so she gets together her cheer squad and they ROB THEIR LOCAL BANK OUTLET IN A SUPERMARKET USING FUCKING CHEER MOVES IT’S THE ULTIMATE
  • tower heist is nothing particularly special, but fun nonetheless
  • inception, though like at this point if you’ve seen one chris nolan movie you’ve seem them all
  • like i suppose now you see me counts…. but as a self proclaimed afficionado of the heist genre this movie is not a fav

the spy genre has a lot of crossover with heists. specifically

  • the mission impossible movies, most especially mission impossible 4: We’re Gonna Climb The Burj Al-Khalifa Freeform With A Sandstorm On The Horizon
  • ARGO FUCK YOURSELF
  • the spy kids movies? THE SPY KIDS MOVIES.
  • CHARLIE’S ANGELS
  • does this video count? cause like i’m making it count
