whatever i'm going with that

Yeah I can’t really see how it’s surprising that the word “pussy” was used a lot in protests against a man who is infamous for saying he “grab[s] women by the pussy.” That’s not about transmisogyny, JFC.

In general, the modern feminist movement really has to find a way to be inclusive to trans women and to be able to talk about how much cultural misogyny is based around wanting to control cis women’s reproductive capabilities. It’s good to acknowledge that not everyone who gets abortions identifies as female, but not if you’re going to obfuscate the fact that much of the cultural opposition to women’s rights is rooted in seeing it as a “women’s issue.” Not everyone who opposes abortion does it out of misogyny, but enough people do, particularly the people with actual power over legislation, that we can’t leave that out of the conversation. (Also, I feel like this is related to the weird way Internet SJ fetishizes non-op trans people, considering that HRT keeps trans men from getting pregnant. But that’s a rant for another time, etc.)

Like on the one hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a lot of women at the protests who didn’t realize that having a vagina/ovaries/etc. is not central to being a woman! And that could be out of hatred or simple ignorance. The one I attended had a lot of older white women who probably aren’t up to date on online feminist discourse and didn’t think through that, so I appreciated seeing younger women (cis and trans) carrying signs that advocated for trans women’s rights and inclusion. And hearing Wendy Davis include trans women in her speech at the march.

We need to be more inclusive with our language. But that shouldn’t mean we have to shut down conversations about really common forms of misogyny – especially when we’re protesting someone who engages in them.

I'm surprised you are still about Sherlock considering that major queerbaiting they did. The trailer showed a scene where Sherlock told John he loved him yet this scene wasn't in any of the episodes

Alright, I keep getting messages like this so I’m just going to answer one and have that be it. I’m upset about what’s happened, too. This show has been the most central focus of my life for five years. I love this show more than anything else I’ve ever been interested in and Johnlock was the largest factor in that. I’ve been openly part of the TJLC community for years. I love this show. I painted the wallpaper on my wall, it stares me right in the face every time I walk in the fucking room. I love this show. This show has helped me through so many hard times and been there for me when I needed it most. This show and the people I’ve met because of it are what played the largest factor in me coming to learn more about myself and my own sexuality. This show has made me so inexplicably happy for so long, and Johnlock specifically. I am hurt and disappointed and upset by things that have happened with the most recent season and I’m extremely let down by what we didn’t get. 

That being said, everything that happened up until season four still happened and I still love all of that. I still stand by the belief that Johnlock is real, that Sherlock is gay, that him and John love one another and are in love. This is one of the biggest things in my life that brings me happiness. If that means ignoring shit I hate about Season 4 for the sake of my mental health and wellbeing then I’m going to continue to enjoy that about the show that I loved. 

As a final note in response to your last comment: The ‘I love you scene’ was in the trailer, as well as the episode. It was bait and as much as we all wanted it to be for John it was taken out of context and unfortunately it was essentially nothing. I’m just as upset and hurt about all of this, but I’m doing what I can to stay positive. You’re not the only one coming to my inbox insinuating that I should be dropping this show altogether. But if I did that my mental health and wellbeing would plummet and I just can’t afford that. I’m going to focus on what has always made me happy about this show as I go forward with it. Johnlock. TJLC. The people I’ve met. The community I know. It’s the only thing I know how to do.

Based on this iconic scene from Jiang Wen’s movie Let the Bullets Fly and can be blamed on @captain-athos

i feel like it’s important to realize how easy henrik and tarjei make their jobs to each other. i mean you could be the greatest actor ever on your own and still be crap interacting with other actors because something doesn’t click. but these two??? i mean, when isak touches, even is there to lean into the touch, and that’s because when tarjei makes a move, henrik is there to catch it (and vice versa). there’s a script, of course, but i feel like they truly become isakandeven when they are on camera, and the fact we as viewers can see that with just touches and looks is just incredible

“Are you kidding me? No. Even if somebody out here did like me, they would never admit it.”

Okay, apparently it is “canon” that Magnus went to Spain to learn to control his powers. BUT I call BULLSHIT on that because that implies that there were zero warlocks who could train him in Indonesia so…

  • The reason he uses two fingers in his magic is because of his Indonesian Warlock trainers- they taught him that magic isn’t a tool or a weapon but another limb. A part of him.
    • As a result, he doesn’t have to work as hard at “controlling” it as some of his western trained friends 
  • He’s way better at sensing other warlock’s magic in his territory because they taught him about the community of magic. How it isn’t about the individual and each spell cast enters the Warlock into a broader community. 
  • They teach him the truth: Warlocks aren’t really “immortal.” They can’t outlast the sun, outlive the species. There will never be a billion-year-old warlock. There are barely any warlocks over a thousand years old. As a Warlock ages, their magic gets more powerful and eventually it circles back into a type of cancerous destruction. 
    • A healthy, able warlock will probably live around five thousand- seven thousand years. 
    • They teach him not to mourn that: everything that is created must eventually be destroyed 
  • They teach him to not use his magic for destruction, or death. They teach him he should protect himself, but he never goes out of his way to end human life. They teach him instead how to use his magic to heal, to create, to protect. They actually teach him how to create wards which are more powerful than traditional European magic. 
    • He actually doesn’t go into battle, because he goes slowly. He doesn’t shoot to kill (which is quick), he aims to injure and subdue, which takes more time. 
    • Only against humans obviously, he kills demons because their only purpose is to cause destruction
