Sherlock writers hint that season 4 will be even "darker" and more "devastating," because of course.



I roll my eyes, because “darker” and “edgier” tends to be associated with “white male privilege” and a really unrealistic concept of “realistic.”  I.e., (white male) creators universally try to be “dark” and “edgy” by torturing/raping/killing women, and/or having their heroes do unforgiveably violent and hateful things (like killing/abusing women) - the point of which seems to reinscribe the idea that some (white male) people are just so special that they don’t have to play by the (politically correct) rules that everyone else needs to live by.

Which, as has been said in other ways, is why Captain America is so appealing - and why Zack Snyder’s Superman is so … not.  Because Captain America is still a white male (well, until recently!) but we are not consistently told that he’s so special that gets to be dark and violent and cruel and we should forgive him due to his special specialness and/or pain.  He understands that he’s powerful, he understands that he has privilege - which means he sees that as a responsibility, not an excuse.

Okay, yeah, I haven’t seen the new season of Sherlock of course, but I’ve heard this song before, and Moffat is … Moffat.

This. So absolutely this.  I’ve never heard it put quite this way, that darkness is required in order to give white guys the “freedom” to break all the rules and be powerful, but it makes tons of sense to me.  I am so over dark and edgy, I can’t even.

What about a dark and edgy world where people are routinely harassed, beaten and even killed because of the color of their skin, their gender and their sexual orientation? That would be really dark and edgy, showing the terrible compromises that people have to make to live and survive in a world that undermines their humanity at every turn.

Jonathan Toews + smile

His smile looks like it’s kind of painful, TBH. Hot and weirdly charming, but painful.

Wow, OK, I had kind of conceptualized that Joss Whedon post along the lines of “here are some random thoughts that I’m gonna store behind a cut in case a few people are interested,” not expecting so many people to reblog it. But since there was so much interest, I ended up thinking about it more. And the direction my thinking took me in was this: what is it that women find attractive in male and female characters, and to what extent does this match up with what men assume that women find attractive in these characters?

And a nifty follow-up to that last piece.

This is super interesting, and definitely plays into why I thought CA:TWS was the best Marvel film to date. Avengers was fun, and the Jossian thing of having the heroic woman use her victimized sexuality for power was neat, but it’s less ground-breaking than it used to be. It’s time to have women on screen whose sexuality is not up for ownership at all, and CA:TWS’s Natasha was that.

So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend
