Tumblr:America needs to stop being racist and sexist, pay more attention to women and PoC ok
CBS:Hey guys guess what we decided Watson should be played by a Taiwanese, female actress in our version of Sherlock Holmes
Tumblr:NOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T DO THAT HOW DARE YOU I AM BOYCOTTING YOUR SHOW I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED
Logic:Look, I've seen this going around, and they also changed the character completely, making her an incompetent surgeon instead of a war hero (because women apparently can't be badass army doctors? what?). So you know, that's kind of a dick move, and a totally VALID reason to boycott the show, since it's pretty much shitting on the original characterization. FemWatson isn't the problem. That is.
Gay as the day is long, and is now being institutionalized because he repressed it so hard for his entire life and has now broken under the weight of his own denial. If this is the case, I wish Rick a speedy recovery where he might someday come to love himself and apologize for all the venom he spat during his political career.
A performance artist the likes of which the world has never seen, attempting to shed a light on political polarization and criticize the blurring of the line between church and state. He is, however, doing such a good performance that no one realizes it’s intended as a satire, and now he’s in too deep to drop the character.
° Watson is no longer the accomplished and decorated war hero and army doctor, two aspects of the character which have always, in some way or another, coloured the way the character behaves and the decisions they make. Not only does it change the character, but it sends a message that women aren’t capable of fighting for their country.
° Related to the above, Watson has no longer been invalided home from anywhere. Again, this is not only important to the character, but sends a message that war wounds are only sexy on men and that women are too weak to go through that.
° She’s a disgraced surgeon who’s lost her license. Oh. Not only has she had the military career erased, but she’s incompetent as well? Fabulous. There are so many other reasons for her to be able to be Jonny Lee Miller’s Boswell without also taking away the one thing that does make her successful. This is completely unnecessary, and once again sends the message that women can’t cope in fields that are predominately male-dominated.
°Joan Three Continents Watson will never fly. As much as I’d love to see this aspect remain intact, I strongly doubt it will. And I think this will be the biggest disappointment of the lot.
Poor reasons to be annoyed with CBS right now:
° Watson is a woman, so all the gay will be erased. What gay, exactly? The only Holmes I can ever recall as being canonically stated as gay was from the Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, and Watson was horrified to learn this. All other adaptations where homosexuality is mentioned have been rife with ‘lol they said “gay”’ jokes.
° Watson being a woman will kill the ship. Yes, because heterosexuals are so disgusting. Oh wait…
° I prefer to look at manmeat in my porn. … I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. I can’t even begin to articulate how ridiculous this is.
TL;DR: Yes. it is fine and dandy to be upset for CBS, but a lot of people are being upset for the WAY wrong reasons.
I thought they just changed Watson’s gender.
Fucking hell, CBS.
God damn, I thought they just made Watson female. That would’ve been acceptable.
CBS, this show is a disgrace.
What the hell, CBS? I have a few things to say about this:
