I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.
Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.
Not mayo on white bread.
Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.
a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act
do i really need to go on
not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man

Part I: “Anaconda” is indeed about butts. To point that out repeatedly in a response video is not nuanced, revelatory, intelligent or any of the other things we usually want parodies to be. Furthermore, what Baker is essentially saying — over and over and over again, to the point you can’t even believe the video’s still going on — is that Anaconda is a bad song because it’s about butts, and Nicki Minaj is a bad artist because she sings about butts. This is oddly not a critique people generally make of Sir Mix-a-Lot, Juvenile, Pitbull or Mos Def, who do the exact same thing. So apparently men who sing about women’s bodies retain their “good artist” status, while a woman who sings about women’s bodies is — in Barker’s typically inarticulate parlance — “basically … a stripper who also knows how to rap.”
This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
Infused in the white bead is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead, mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Separating the two beads are clear beads, representative of the story we all have to tell. Life moves through cycles, find your balance.
