Well, I didn’t notice at first watch (unsurprisingly? haha) but I went back and sure enough, there it is:
You guys are amazing. Seriously, this fandom has still got it.
I live for the day when we get a modern adaptation that is Canon compliant. Give me a Holmes in jeans, reading love poems, who flamboyantly flits about with twinkling eyes. Give me a Watson with a wit as dry as a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, whose only issues with denial are centered around their sense of self worth. And for god’s sake, have them hold hands.spending hours walking in the park, mostly in comfortable, intimate silence. sitting through classical concerts together (sherlock’s more avant garde in his taste but john likes music he can hum). going to the turkish baths together for heaven’s sake. and most of all (please, please, PLEASE) a sherlock who is so kind, so encouraging to those who come to him in trouble or anxiety.
When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reflects on the Supreme Court’s recent rulings, she sees an inconsistency.
In its gay rights rulings, she told a law school audience last week, the court uses the soaring language of “equal dignity” and has endorsed the fundamental values of “liberty and equality.” Indeed, a court that just three decades ago allowed criminal prosecutions for gay sex now speaks with sympathy for gay families and seems on the cusp of embracing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.
But in cases involving gender, she said, the court has never fully embraced “the ability of women to decide for themselves what their destiny will be.” She said the court’s five-justice conservative majority, all men, did not understand the challenges women face in achieving authentic equality.
