and we all feel a simultaneous punch to the gut.
but!!!!! this is so important!!!! this is such a potent metaphor for how much bad things are glamorized in our society like eating disorders or self harm and so you have these little kids seeing it made dramatic and beautiful and i just!!!! catching fire u did so good u did so good
[Translation : “I’m not racist but Miss France competition should be only for white women, it seems logical actually” “In terms of beauty, sorry but blacks don’t come close to whites.” “Blacks all look the same, it’s disturbing”]
I guess it was predictable.
Yesterday, Flora Coquerel won the Miss France competition. And now, racist comments. DUMB racist comments.
First, the second most-researched terms when you type her name is “origins” : well, her family is Guadelupiean. So pretty French. And even if her parents were from foreign countries, who cares ?
And now, tweets about how blacks should be banished from the competition… Are you serious ? I hate people, sometimes.
BUT THERE’S NO RACISM IN EUROPE
Hahaha.. Whoever says there’s no racism in Europe is probably white.
Seriously. I see people say that shit all the time and I’m like, “nnno, we imported that shit from YOU, ASSHOLES”look at that asshole well if black women did not reach the ankle of white women.. why did she win… must be. hard seeing black women destroying your. standard spoilt milk ..
JOHN WAS SHERLOCK’S WHOLE WORLD
SO HE ASSUMED IT WAS THE SAME FOR JOHN
PLEASE KILL ME (x)
There’s totes room for this headcanon if you wanna fic that way but ahahaha yeah no I’m not even a fraction so charitable to Mr. Ego, here.
Oh, sure, I look forward to and have my hopes set on him REALIZING that John means a hell of a lot to him. But I don’t think he knows it, here. Seriously. He’s basically saying, “his little life was pointless and glory-less without ME”, and that is not exactly the basis for a healthy relationship. He’s also basically implying that he left thinking that John would have no fulfilling life without him. That’s not a man besotted, that’s just fucking self-centered.
Now, we don’t know how much of this Sherlock really believes yet— we just know he SAYS or WANTS to believe that his importance to John is this huge and unshakeable. I sincerely hope that a good bit of ep 1 is spent making it clear to Sherlock that John could have a damn happy life without him. Not the same life, but happy.
It’s not that they can’t be without each other: it’s that they are better together. That is what healthy friendships and romances are built on. That is what Sherlock doesn’t have yet, that he needs to learn. And I can’t really stomach any Sherlock-pitying until he’s show engaging with and learning that lesson, as painfully as need be.
YES, thank you. Those weren’t the words of a good friend, they were the words of an egotistical dickwad. I hope Sherlock gets 1) punched really hard; 2) the lesson that the universe doesn’t revolve around him.
