sherlock holmes and john watson are beloved, iconic characters whose relationship (written in a time when it could not have been openly queer) was so intimate that the possible queer subtext has been being discussed for decades, and yet the possibility of their romantic involvement has never been textually explored on screen up to this point because it either hasn’t been allowed or hasn’t been socially acceptable to do so

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally to see sherlock holmes and john watson finally allowed to be in a textually queer relationship on screen

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally to see a queer romance given the same kind of slow-build treatment that heterosexual romances are often given but which queer stories are often denied

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally for the show to upset the notion that any character who hasn’t stated their sexual orientation can be assumed to be heterosexual by default

for this to actually happen on television in a popular show with such iconic characters would in fact be progressive and would in fact have a positive cultural impact and to pretend otherwise by accusing people who want it of fetishizing, of pretending that shipping is activism, or of not being queer enough is frankly repulsive

if it doesn’t mean anything to you, fine, but don’t sit there telling other people that the representation that they want isn’t valid because it didn’t get your own personal queer stamp of approval

oh, but i guess i don’t know why you’d listen to me; i’m just a bisexual woman who married a person of a different gender so i probably don’t count as being a “real” queer person
