Moffat is furious

Oh I just read that Moffat is furious about being accused of sexism.

Oh you're furious, really? How do you think we fucking feel? And to be clear, I never said that Sherlock the character is sexist, I said you the writer are a misogynist and that your writing for the show, (in season 1 and in this notorious episode), is sexist. And anti-canon. And disgusting. And shameful. Fuck you!

It's laughable to read Gatiss discussing how they need to be faithful in adapting the iconic Hound tale, but apparently they didn't need to be faithful in adapting the iconic Irene Adler. You didn't give a damn about reining in Moffat on that one. Piss off to you too!

Moffit needs to realize this is a "reap what you sow" situation. He created a sexist character based on sex who lost instead of winning because she had to fall in love with the main male character. Create a sexist character, Moffet, end up with angry fans!

Thank You for calling spade a spade!

Sir Doyle's "The Woman" has been converted into a run of the mill damsel-in-distress, (no) thanks to Moffat and Gatiss. This was one of the worst deviations from the canon, even worse than making Sherlock Holmes a sociopath and making Sherlock and Mycroft almost antagonists. I could go on with more...

I see you like the Russian adaptation with Vasily Livanov as Sherlock Holmes. Livanov is my all time favorite Holmes :)

Cheers!
