So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
I’m sorry, but this is the shittiest analogy I’ve seen in like a week. Abortion isn’t a morally questionable deed. Fighting in a war is.
Before I had tumblr I had no idea there were any sexualities other than heterosexual and homosexual. I never considered gender inequalities still existed.
That doesn’t mean I was purposely trying to discriminate or upset people.
There is a difference between being just ignorant of something and purposefully discriminating.
Give someone a chance to learn and be enlightened before you slam them as rude, horrible people
preach. most of us want to learn. help us get our answers.
(Disclaimer: Let me make something very clear. I’m not trying to tell anybody what to think or not think about Mary - or any character from any story, ever. As far as I’m concerned, there isn’t much point to passing moral judgments on the fictional characters; it just takes away the multidimensionality. But that’s just me.)
In the aftermath of S3, the majority of debates seem to center around Mary. Is she a good person? Is she a villain? Exactly how far can we go with condemning her? Etc., you catch my drift. I’m not going to rehash those debates; chances are you’ve read them, and if you haven’t, they are literally everywhere.
I want to talk about this problem from another angle, which - at least I think so - remains mostly unexplored. So let’s talk about antiheroes for a bit. Let’s talk about many different moral codexes we’re introduced to during the entirety of Sherlock.
I’m going to break this down character by character, just to maintain some order.
