male privilege is ryan lochte responding to ye shiwen’s record-beating swim by saying “it was pretty impressive. and it was a female. she’s fast. if she was there with me, i don’t know, she might have beat me.”
lochte swam his final 50 meters in 29.10 seconds. ye swam it in 28.93. motherfucker, she DID BEAT YOU.
MALE PRIVILEGE IS HAVING PEOPLE QUESTION YOUR GENDER AND DRUG STATUS AFTER YOU KICK ASS
FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU
I have lived many ages of men, Steven. Centuries without end. I have seen many great men, and known countless honors. But the greatest honor of this ancient and tired soul has been the privilege of fighting beside you, and calling you my friend. May grace and peace be with you, to the end of all things.
In the latest series’ first episode, Holmes was sexually discombobulated by a lesbian dominatrix who strips off in order to arouse Sherlock’s sexuality from its dogmatic slumbers. I couldn’t find any of this in Doyle’s story A Scandal in Bohemia, from which the episode was adapted. Indeed, Moffat and Gatiss’s treatment drove one critic, Jane Clare Jones writing in the Guardian, to suggest they had created a misogynistic throwback. In the original story, Irene Adler is an adventuress who outwits Holmes; in Sherlock, as Jones put it: “She’s become a high-class dominatrix saved only from certain death by the dramatic intervention of our hero.” She added: “While Doyle’s original is hardly an exemplar of gender evolution, you’ve got to worry when a woman comes off worse in 2012 than in 1891.”
Moffat, unsurprisingly, doesn’t agree. “In the original, Irene Adler’s victory over Sherlock Holmes was to move house and run away with her husband. That’s not a feminist victory.” He says he found Jones’s argument “deeply offensive”. “Everyone else gets it that Irene wins.
