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’.

the pro-life movement can be summed up by the fact that one of my friends who’s pregnant was taking the bus home from downtown when all the people from the March for Life were also leaving and she asked a young girl sitting in the priority seating if she could sit down because she’s pregnant and the girl replied, “well I’m really tired, i was at the march all day.”

Awkward.

Are you fucking joking
