People complaining about a woman being cast as Dr. Watson in CBS’ Sherlocktastrophe*

raptorsahoy:

* I’m not excited about this show either and there are perfectly legitimate reasons to be less than thrilled about Lucy Liu (like you’ve never forgiven her for being in Charlie’s Angels), but shitting on this news solely because of her gender? That is a place we do not need to go. Shape up, fandom. It’s not like TV is running short on white dudes.

I don’t think that is where the problem is.  I think it’s more like they are totally going to canonically sexualize this historically asexual relationship. Just sayin’.

    And they picked a POC, which makes it doubly cool. Unfortunately, this does not change the fact she was in Charlie’s...
