    Yeeeees? And?

    I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.


    Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.

    Not mayo on white bread.

    Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.

    Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’

    Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.

    a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
    a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
    a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
    a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
    a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act
    do i really need to go on

    not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen

    not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man

    One misspelling of principle later, this is exactly the place you should be at when you consider this unfortunate series of actions.

  7. "In these days before antiseptics, doctors themselves also suffered high mortality rates. Florence Nightingale, a nurse during the Crimean War (1853-1856), watched one particularly inept surgeon cut both himself and, somehow, a bystander while blundering about during an amputation. Both men contracted an infection and died, as did the patient. Nightingale commented that it was the only surgery she’d ever seen with 300 percent mortality."

    We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

    They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

    Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.

    This is so important.

    especially since how mental illness/ptsd is formed varies with culture and experience. it is horrifying that western doctors are only realizing that now.  that mental illness may be a universal issue and problem that everyone faces but it does not mean everyone experiences/deals with it in the same way
