Yeeeees? And?

I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.

LOL.

Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.

Not mayo on white bread.

Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.

Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’

Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.

a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act
do i really need to go on

not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen

not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man

Reblogging for commentary.

Sums up my feelings on Elementary quite nicely. It’s not Sherlock in all the right ways.

I’ve never seen a post make me want to watch a show so bad.

I still love sherlock though.

please someone reassure my this is just fuckin  w people right.

this is bullshit what the fuck

Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck

why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway

YOU EXPECT YOUR CHILDREN TO DRINK 700ML DRINKS TO COME WITH THEIR FUCKING HAPPY MEAL??? FUCK OUTTA HERE AMERICA

We have a “Kids” size that is smaller than the small. It’s like an Australian medium (which is the same size as a can of coke btw). Also, in the US all of the sizes cost the same amount. $1. You basically pick based on how much soda you want, not how much you want to pay. Which is excellent…if you want to give an entire nation diabetes. 

Sometimes I get a little frustrated when people talk about how McDonald’s is bad for you and then in the same breath propose going to a local restaurant where they buy a half-pound bacon cheeseburger. The wheat is the same wheat, the meat is the same meat. There’s nothing about McDonald’s that’s intrinsically bad for you except portion sizes, which are just as bad, if not worse, at sit-down service places.

There’s this perception that McDonald’s is junk food simply because it’s McDonald’s and, frankly, I’m starting to think it’s classist. Like, It’s where poor people go, so it must not be substandard.

The only problem with McDonald’s is that when you get a Big Mac Meal with large fries and a coke, you’re getting 1,300 calories set in front of you…and unfortunately it tastes so damn good that you’ll eat the whole thing. 

Oh…another problem with McDonald’s is that to keep their prices low they pay poverty-level wages to, increasingly, adult professional people, but that’s not what I hear people complaining about.

Now “tribal trends” are totally “in.” You can walk into any store in the mall and see “Native” imagery everywhere. As a Native person, when I look at them, I can’t help but remember the not-so-distant past when my people weren’t allowed, by law, to wear these things. It’s such a constant reminder of the colonial power structures still in place. Back in the day, white people had the power to take away our culture, and now they have the power to wear it however they see fit. These are our images, our cultural symbols, yet we are completely powerless to have control over them.
