People are getting mad that anyone would think it’s homophobic to depict the main obstacle of their relationship as JOHN’S INABILITY TO EVER IMAGINE HIMSELF WITH A GUY???? LIke you want to write John coming to terms with his sexuality like “OK GO FOR IT” BUT
THIS IS THE GUY who goes out of his way to say not JUST in a ASIP but also in scandal “has sherlock had a boyfriend or a girlfriend?” HE SAYS BOTH. HE NEVER SWITCHES OVER TO SPEAKING IN HETERONORMATIVE TERMS ABOUT SHERLOCK…EVER EVEN WHEN HE THINKS SHERLOCK IS IN LOVE WITH A WOMAN
And the fact a fic would depict him as not even being able to conceive of being with a guy to the level where he UNKINDLY REJECTS SHERLOCK SHERLOCK HIS BEST FRIEND SHERLOCK WHO HE CONSTANTLY DECLARES HIS LOVE FOR IN THE ACTUAL SHOW….to the point where he goes out of his way to be like “just SO YOU KNOW it’s not OTHER GUYS…it’s JUST YOU AND I AM SHOCKED THAT I AM ATTRACTED TO YOU BUT I GUESS I AM”….that’s not just bad characterization….that is the author being so dedicated to “John is straight” that they have a harder time conceiving of John being bisexual than JOHN HIMSELF.
ppl always ask me “”what are you going to do with your degree”“ and “"if you wanna get a PHD how do you plan on paying for it"" and ""where are you gonna move after college"" but here is the thing:
i am very powerful and cute and im gonna float through this world one day at a time. please leave me alone.
You can like wearing sundresses and lace and still be nonbinary.
You can like wearing pantsuits with ties and still be a woman.
You can like wearing floral patterns and still be a man.
Gender identity is valid. Gender expression is subjective. Gender norms are bullshit.
pilot!john is my hero because while show!john is like ‘soo…. people don’t have arch-nemesis anyway… let me try to establish a conversation before i try to hit on you’, pilot!john is like ‘fuck that, okay do you have a girlfriend or not? do you have a boyfriend? do you do anything sexual?? i’m here so….’
bisexual people aren’t more likely to cheat in relationships but we are more likely to cheat at cards, while lesbians are most likely to cheat at jenga, and genderqueer people often cheat at mario kart
how the fuck do you cheat at jenga
ask a lesbian
this is never not funny
It’s funny because in ASIP we see John hits on both a man and a woman, Sherlock & Anthea, in TBB he literally goes on a date with both a man and a woman, Sherlock & Sarah, in ASIB he doesn’t deny he has feelings for a man (Sherlock) just after hitting on a woman (unkown); in Hounds he goes on a date with a woman and checks out a man (Lyons) & comments on a man’s looks (Sherlock), in TSoT he marries a woman and they show us that his ex is a man (Sholto) and he hits on Sherlock (for the third time). Basically there is not one episode where John is shown to have a romantic interest in a woman that doesn’t have a male counterpart. He’s bi.
that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again
