Yeah, saying that endquestionmark was saying it's impossible to be prejudiced against males or whites is basically just an admission of your lack of reading comprehension skills.
Or an Admission that they’re a racist, sexist asshole. It actually seems the majority of people agree with that take, especially since DearMoriarty (Or whatever their name was) pretty much outright said “It’s Impossible to be racist/sexist against whites and Men.”
You can live in your world, I’ll live in the real one.
PLEASE don't think I'm weighing in with the idiot you've been arguing about racism with, but I think I know what they're getting at with the 'you can't be racist against white people' line. Social science studies of racism structure it specifically as an othering by a majority group against a minority, so it's the power of the majority that allows discrimination and oppression of a whole race (hence 'racism') opposed to just people being dicks on account of colour or whatever.
Yeah, I figured it was a “Majority” kind of thing, doesn’t make it any less wrong to be prejudice against someone just because they happen to be white. Or male - which I assume their reasoning is along the same line as the racism. To outright deny you can be prejudice against men and white people - I never wanted to slap someone so much in my life.
Ah, yeah, I got confused about the anon thing, as I mixed who was saying it up (due to bolding and what not) but I fail to understand your issues with Elementary if you understand that a man and a woman can be friends with nothing romantic in between them.
I don’t have any issues with Elementary. I love it and am look forward to it. BUT I do have issues with the (insert insult of choice here) that keep on attacking everyone that doesn’t kiss their ass.
People are allowed to have opinions and be allowed to express them. When their opinions are insulting (Making racist/sexist comments for example) then you can rip them a new one - but when a person is innocently expressing their doubts and concerns in an nonoffensive manner (and even say they’re still going to watch the show), then we have a problem.
These mindless attacks on innocent people who ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SAME SHOW just because they don’t share your opinion on some things has got to stop. It’s driving away potential fans and making the whole fandom looking like crazy psycho bitches.
And those crazy people don’t like being called out on their shit. Simple as that.
you're probably sending yourselves anon messages defending yourself haha. also, you're completely ignoring the fact that there won't be a romance between Joan and Sherlock. you keep saying that you think they did it to create a romance, which makes no sense when all evidence shows there won't be a romance. why do you think a guy and a girl can't be friends without it being romantic? that doesn't make any sense.
I think you sent this to the wrong person. XD
I haven’t received any anon messages lately, I know and completely support there not being any romance between Sherlock and Joan (as you can see if you looked through my Elementary Tag on my own Tumblr) and I’ve been telling people off for assuming that a man and woman can’t have a deep meaningful friendship that has nothing to do with sex.
I’ve also been bitching out people who think that Watson being a woman somehow completely changes the character which is not only wrong and sexist but completely insulting to Watson as a character.
So, you’ve either got the wrong person or people are making shit up about me. XD
