- Complete as a human being
- January 22nd, 14:02
Something bothered me about "The Lying Detective", and now I know what it was. That phrase about a "romantic entanglement" (which implied a "night of passion") that would complete Sherlock as a human being.
It feels like a slap in the face of asexual people. Okay, maybe Sherlock wasn't meant to be an asexual character, though many considered him to be so. (As for me, I would prefer Johnlock that isn't likely to happen, too, at least officially.) But saying, in such a convinced manner, that sex is the only way for a person to be complete and not to be alone... it's cruel, I think.
