ok so what if Moriarty decides to tempt Joan into a cat-and-mouse relationship and leaves clues about her whereabouts where will Joan will find them (you know, the sort of thing Sherlock wouldn’t be able to resist) and Joan just ignores them
so she starts getting more and more blatant and theatrical but Joan will have none of it
and it escalates until Moriarty is haunting public places in a sheet going ‘JOOOOAAAAANNN WAATSOOOONNN’
gangstajonah asked: Also, is it wrong to have a preference on what type of person you like? Is it wrong to like Asian men (not just Korean but all Asian men) more than Mediterranean men? Is it wrong for someone to find a certain type of person attractive over another? There are lots of different kinds of Asians in my town since we are in a college town and I know what normal Asians look like. They don't look like Taeyeon or Jay Park but they are still attractive but is that wrong to think so?
is it wrong to have a preconceived idea of how a person is based on their race? is it wrong to generalize the huge continent of asia as one physical appearance? is it wrong for people to claim they just “have preferences” without examining the internalized racism and beliefs society has been teaching them about beauty and sexuality?
i’m going to stop at the “normal asians” comment.

Not trying to take any sides, but maybe the person just didn’t have the right words to say that they find certain features in one group of people more attractive than they find features of other groups. Yes, we know that features can vary drastically over the continents (there’s so much variation ethnically and even within countries). I know for me, I’m generally attracted to almond shaped eyes and darker skin, but I don’t go searching out Southeast Asians. I guess that’s where the problem lies. We forget that our preferences can turn very quickly into fetishisation of people.
And the “normal Asian” comment…. Give the kid a break. We all know they meant Asians that don’t look like the people we are fed from the media. It’s like saying the average Black girl does not look like Beyoncé, which I’ve had to say to dozens of men.
oh please if you’re going to take sides, just take one without acting like you’re not excusing some messed up behavior. As for the features comment, one needs to deeply examine where these “preferences lie”. Features can vary A LOT even if two people are from the same country. And there are features that are definitely coded with more racial implications than others.
Second, no this person does not get a pass with that comment despite intentions. It was worded super incorrectly and it needed to be called out on
Can I just add, “normal Asians” is a problem.
Excuse you. “We all know they meant Asians that don’t look like the people we are fed from the media.” No. People don’t say “normal Asians” for that. That’s downright racism and generalizing various nationalities - Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Indians, and so many more - into one title “Asians.”
So yes, thisisnotkorea is right for calling out gangstajonah.
