While I was reading my way through “Transmedia Fandom”, a collection of essays on BBC’s Sherlock published after season one aired, I stumbled across this sentence:
Roberta Pearson; The Good Old Index, Or, The Mystery of the Infinite Archive, p. 160. In: Sherlock and Transmedia Fandom. Essays on the BBC Series. London, 2012.
I stumbled, literally, since I was walking while reading, yet the reason behind it wasn’t clumsiness, but rather the content of that sentence.
That is, the blatant heteronormativity it showcases.
PERFECT. The only thing I have to add is to point out the blatant bi/pan erasure that is present in the phrase ‘the straight or gay question’.
