Say it with me, kids:

  • Being white doesn’t automatically make you a racist.
  • Being a man doesn’t automatically make you a sexist.
  • Being a heterosexual doesn’t automatically make you homophobic.
  • Being cisgendered doesn’t automatically make you transphobic.
  • Existing as a part of the majority does not automatically make you an oppressor to the minority.

I always thought that what Russell [T. Davies] did in Doctor Who was extremely ground-breaking, in a slightly more subversive way than it looked like.

It never occurred to me that [the representation of gay characters] was too on the nose; what he did brilliantly was introduce incidentally gay characters—obviously as well as some more in-your-face ones.

One of my favourite stories is [the episode] Gridlock: there’s an elderly couple of ladies who are together, and it just sort of passes by, and that’s the way—softly, softly.

That’s how the revolution happens, as it were: you just become aware that people are incidentally gay.

I think when the day comes that you have a big detective show where the first half hour was this man at work, and he’s a maverick, and all the usual things… and then we went home and his boyfriend says, 'Are you alright?', [and] it was just a thing… then something would have genuinely changed.

I think the problem still is, [being gay] becomes the issue. I think the thing with gay characters is that it has to be an issue, as opposed to being part of everyday life—which of course, as we all know, is what it is.

Imagine Sherlock crawling into bed after a really tiring case, and wrapping himself around John as John rubs his arm and murmurs praises until Sherlock falls asleep

Yeah, sticking googly-eyes on a statue is fun but, what if when you turn your back you hear the tell-tale rattle of them moving about?

john and sherlock cuddling on the couch and john finally gets fed up with sherlock yelling at the television so he starts softly rubbing his hand against his crotch. sherlock stops mid sentence to turn and face john so john takes this opportunity to kiss him so his mouth is otherwise occupied. an hour later there is peace in the apartment once more as they drift off to sleep in each others arms.

Imagine after Sherlock and John had sex for the first time - it was clumsy, sweeet and passionate - they just lie there pressed up against each other, legs entangled. And Sherlock is quiet. John already thinks he's fallen asleep, but then he hears Sherlock is silently crying and John holds him and asks him what's wrong and Sherlock mutters, "Nothing's wrong, I'm just so happy. So happy, John..."

he’d have thought he would never love someone as he loves John, but even more that nobody would ever love him as John does, and he would be so happy and so overwhelmed and all of those years of suppressed emotions would come pouring out

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
Anonymous asked

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
