Sherlock’s response to John asking him to be the best man
I tie you up and force your mouth open. I shove chocolate cake down your throat. More and more and more. It hurts because I am being so rough, and because you are resisting and unprepared. You are choking. You can’t breathe. You keep half-vomiting chocolate cake and being forced to swallow your own vomit because I keep stuffing more cake down your throat.
“What’s wrong?” I ask. ”You love chocolate cake. You consensually eat chocolate cake all the time, so why aren’t you enjoying this? Oh, I get it… you don’t enjoy this because society TELLS you not to,” I conclude as I shove my fist down your throat, scratching you raw with my fingernails for the thousandth time. This time when you force yourself to swallow you taste blood, but at least we are defying societal norms. Remember, being unwillingly force-fed is healthy in small doses.
the example is pretty amazing. i just hope one day I get the enough power to actually make those assholes try it themselves and then tells me if they enjoyed it or not.

In which the most important character development of Sherlock Holmes is when he chooses to focus on the life that needed saving, instead of the satisfaction of an answer to the puzzle.
As demonstrated by the earlier phonecall from Mycroft, the Holmes brothers have always distanced themselves from human interaction and getting involved. The utmost importance always lied in objectivity— always needing there to be an answer. Mycroft dominating Sherlock’s head in this scene signified this second nature of cold calculation and the reflexive search for who did it. Thus, while Mycroft was at the helm, all Sherlock could see was "who is the Mayfly Man?”.
We’ve seen this before in The Study in Pink and The Great Game, where Sherlock only cared about who the mastermind was, never minding the lives that were lost along the way.
Not this time.
At the height of his deductions, he forcibly shuts Mycroft off along with his obsessive compulsive need to know who did it saying “Not you—you.” And he then points to John.
And this is where the most powerful character development occurs because it is immensely difficult for Sherlock to consciously put aside the obsession over a culprit (evident from the fact that he had to slap his own face) and yet here, we witness him recognize that John is always the one to put lives first above all else, and for once, he will too. He turns away from who did it to who can we save and what Sherlock sees then changes to target.
He chooses John to rule his head saying that John keeps him right, and more importantly, to not
solve the murder; save the life. For once, in all his cases, Sherlock consciously realizes that there are more important things than deducing who the culprit is; it is the people they can save. For once, Sherlock cares.
And if that isn’t A+ character development that was so humanly natural it slipped by unnoticed, then I don’t know what is.

NOW BEFORE AN ANGRY MOB COMES AFTER ME, LET ME EXPLAIN.
Now, this traitor can’t be Annie because not only does this person have manly hands and no boobs, but the nose is entirely too small.
And it should be noted that the body doesn’t match the other traitors (won’t…
Escuse u, but the definition of feminism is equality. I believe what you be protesting is feminazism.
I need feminism because of the skewed views people like you choose to ignorantly spew.Dear people who disagree with this post,
Feminism is sexist.
It’s in the very name. feminism.
Men have just as many disadvantages. They aren’t allowed to cry, do housework, be a hairdresser, sew/knit, and they’re expected to hold the door open for women, give up their seats, pay for the meal, spoil the woman, be the main source of income, and so much more.
Feminism is just fighting for the “rights” of women only. Feminists want all the rights of a man, with none of the drawbacks.
I propose we start a new belief rights group thing. Equalism: striving for the rights of all humans, no matter of sex, gender, sexuality, race, age, or any other traits.
Holy motherfuck. As a
manteenage boy, whatever, who is certainly aware of the fact that we have problems too, I say that this post is complete and utter BULLSHIT.
Patriarchy is the reason we can’t do supposedly feminine things like cry or do housework. We’re expected to “hold the door open for women, give up their seats, pay for the meal, etc” That’s called being a polite person, maybe? Who ever said women can’t do the same things for men? Where in feminism did it say women wanted special treatment?
And hey, guess what? Feminism a wants to break the patriarchy, which is the source of many of the problems for men! Holy shit!
Now, I’m going to assume the person who accused feminism of sexism is in a position of immense privilege. But so am I, and despite being a well-off, straight white guy, I’m a feminist.
Why am I a feminist? Because women have it a lot worse than men. From my position of privilege, I don’t feel qualified to make a comprehensive list, so I’ll hope someone else will help me with that bit.
I agree wholeheartedly with the person above…. Allow me to expand:
Feminism means equality. If you want to be able to cry, as a man, and not be labelled as a “girl” for doing so, feminism is something you should support (calling someone a woman should not be an insult). Saying something like “men have it just as hard” in a defense is absolutely ridiculous.
- If a man is sexually assaulted, is he asked if what he was wearing provoked the attacker?
- If a man wears a shirt with say, Captain America’s shield on it, is he labelled as a “fake nerd”?
- If a man sleeps with a woman every day, is he considered “disgusting” and is the act “shameful”?
We are not “playing victim” you sexist fucking idiots (yes, women can be sexist too, it’s part of the whole “equal” thing that feminism has going). We are standing up for our right to do everything a man can do: we have to work twice as hard to get the same pay, for example.
Now, that isn’t to say that men don’t have their own issues because of this fundamentally sexist view you’re promoting:
Men are expected to get what, a few weeks leave if their child is born? A woman gets longer - why can’t men and women have the same amount of leave? because people like you think that we don’t need feminism.
Feminism means equality. The definition of the noun “equal” is a person or thing considered to be the same as another in status or quality. Does this in any way mean “men are evil” or “women are better”? Or are you genuinely that fucking blinded by patriarchy and their ideals of any woman standing up for herself that you think it’s better to sit down and just put up with the kitchen jokes and being called a “bimbo”?
Or, better yet, if you don’t want feminism, we should remove you from having the ability to do anything that feminism has accomplished already.
Without feminism you would not have (among many other things):
- Your right to vote.
- Your right to work.
- The ability to wear anything you want.
- The crime of rape (if you were raped in an Ancient Greek society, you would have been immediately divorced and considered “soiled” and “impure”).
- Female writers (Mary Shelley and Emily Bronte had to pretend to be men to have their books published).
- Female professors.
- Female politicians.
- The ability to not have a child (again, in many societies prior to the feminist movement, if you were infertile or didn’t want children, you were a disgrace).
Feminism means equality. It is not to say that men are any less than women, it is the movement that makes men and women equal.
- A man should be able to wear pink and not look “too girly”.
- A man should be able to watch Mean Girls or She’s the Man and not be “too girly”.
- A man should be able to wear make-up and not be “too girly”.
- A man should be able to hang around with loads of girls without being either a “playa” or “too girly”.
Being feminine is not shameful. I stand for men as well as women. We should be able to do what we want, and be seen as equal. No-one is better than anyone else.
I have to use a MALE pseudonym online so people don’t tell me to shut up because I’m a girl. So people don’t disregard my opinion because I have tits and a fucking vagina. I have to use it so people don’t automatically go “tits or gtfo” or “women shouldn’t like ___”. How fucking stupid do you have to be to think that it’s not intelligence that matters, but what someone has in their pants?
Feminism doesn’t make being a stay at home mother or father any less of a feat. If we were all feminists, we wouldn’t give a flying fuck what people did.
I don’t want kids: everyone tells me “you’ll change your mind” and “it’s the best thing a woman can do”. Do you have any idea how insulting that is? Who cares?
Abortions are necessary. If a woman is raped, or if a man’s condom splits, and you’re not able to get an abortion, you are condemning them to a life of misery.
No birth control? Not only are you promoting the idea that a woman must want to have a child or else she is worthless, you’re also aiding the spread of STDs.
There are so many more things we need before we are 100% equal. It shouldn’t matter what our genitals are at all. Nor should it matter what skin colour you are, what religion you are, what your sexuality is - who gives a fuck?
Yeah, of course we don’t need feminism. Shut up before you lower everyone else’s IQ.
