I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

Mary Morstan is a character - feel free to hate her all that you want; however, Amanda Abbington is a person, and does not deserve the hate that she’s been receiving. You are sending death threats to an actress that was hired to play a character. The actress has literally nothing to do with the character, besides the fact that they share a face and voice. She is Martin’s partner and we all adore the both of them, and I wouldn’t put it past Martin to consider dropping Sherlock - which he is choosing to be a part of - because his partner is being harassed by the fans of the show.
We love Martin, and we love how he portrays John, we love his and Benedict’s dynamic, and Amanda has always been extremely supportive of the fandom and our completely odd shenanigans, so don’t go chasing after her with pitchforks and torches just because she’s playing a character that is the love interest of one half of our duo.
She’s a real human being, not a fictional one. Just stop.
If you want to know why gender stereotypes exist, take a good look at the difference between Girl’s Life and Boy’s Life Magazines. While Boy’s Life pushes boys to get outside and explore nature, Girl’s Life tells girls they should be worrying about fashion. While Boy’s Life offers stories of Scouts they can model themselves after, Girl’s Life asks if Facebook is ruining their love life. And, my personal favorite, while Boy’s Life gives it’s readers jokes so they can be the center of attention Girl’s Life posits, “Do You Know When to Shut Up?”
This is the message we’re giving our children.
this is why we need feminism

I’ve had a lot of people call me out on my comment regarding Gal Gadot’s resume. I can see their point. Certainly and actress who hasn’t worked very much in film in their career could be a good actress. I’ve seen her work and certainly I don’t think she’s bad. But I also don’t think I’ve seen the range and experience that I’d like to see.
I think everyone can agree that the casting of Wonder Woman is hugely important. While there have been multiple Batman movies and multiple Superman movies, in 75 years there has never been a live action Wonder Woman movie. A few years ago when Brandon Routh didn’t work out, they just went and cast another actor. And we got another Superman movie. When Eric Bana didn’t work as Hulk, they went and got another actor. And when Norton didn’t work out they got another actor.
I think anyone who knows the way it is with women in Hollywood and big budget movies it just doesn’t work that way.
Lynda Carter didn’t have much experience. And she was fantastic. But that was another place and time. A TV program in the 70s is not a big screen movie. The stakes were not as high.
Maybe I’m naive. Maybe I’m just too gun shy but I honestly believe that Wonder Woman has one shot on the big screen. This casting will help determine that. That’s a lot of pressure.
Do you think it is fair to want an actress that you know will kill the part?An actress you know has shown the range, the work, the ability?
When Hathaway was cast as Catwoman, there was a lot of people who didn’t like her. But you knew her work and you could tell she could act.
Same with Adams.
Same with Scarlett Johanson.
Oh you might not like them. You might not even think they’re very good actors.
But there is certainly a lot of work to evaluate them by.
As far as I’m concerned my hope was for the BEST actress possible to play Wonder Woman.
One indicator of a good actress to me would be a CV showing range and regular work.
Certainly others could feel that wasn’t a concern.
Gal Gadot may turn out to be a great Wonder Woman.
She may have range and talents that we haven’t seen.
She may have not gotten work despite being a great actress because of other reasons.
That’s a lot of assumptions. Some may be satisfied with that. Some may feel she looks the part and that’s enough. Some may think that what they’ve seen of her acting is enough.
It’s take 75 years to put Wonder Woman on the big screen.
If this doesn’t work, you’re not likely to see another try for awhile.
You can disagree but I was hoping for a slam dunk sure bet.
