today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.
reblog to save a life.
I’ll grant you, anon, that diversity isn’t enough to save a show from poor writing. However, let’s talk about a few other things, shall we?
Let’s talk about how shows with all white male protagonists can churn out straight-up racist episodes still be utterly beloved by its fanbase and the Emmys. Let’s talk about how shows with all white male protagonists can kill off every female character it’s ever had for ten years and still have a massive popular following heralding it as progressive for gay representation. Let’s talk about how movies with with all white male leading men (most of them named Chris), with POCs and women only in supporting roles, is hailed as progressive.

Then let’s talk about how before Elementary started, before a single episode script had been seen by the public, Sherlock fans and its creators derided the show for daring to make Watson a woman, and called its leading lady ‘a dog’ on televised interviews. Let’s talk about how the Sherlock fandom hurled racist, sexist, and painfully country-centric abuse at Elementary before the show even premiered.
Let’s talk about how a certain show’s fandom is so bad there’s an entire Tumblr dedicated to documenting misogyny in the fandom (hey, sherlockfandomhateswomen!)
Let’s talk about how a number of people who responded to my comment about Tumblr fans admitted that they never gave Elementary a chance because the fandom reaction had been so virulent before a single scene of writing was made public.
Let’s talk about how there are literally fans who defend their dislike of Elementary because “Watson has to be a man” or “how dare they make Moriarty a woman.”
