Do they not realize Sherlock is extremely abusive to john too????
Like they justified John being able to kill Sherlock just now????????????
"Mary abused John with her lies"
Sherlock abused John with the drugs he gives him without warning or consent
They are that much in denial and it’s really sad and makes me worry for them in real life. I am scared to think about what they’d accept in the real world because it’s “out of love.”
This is a hue part of why I am against Johnlock happening in the show
It’s not just Sherlock is mean and bad with people, it’s that he actually does not okay abusive behavior
People occasionally cite Mary gaslighting John and she did it because SHERLOCK DID IT FIRST
Like I get shipping but the relationship on the show is so not okay and it’s painted as romantic or funny and a lot of their interactions are really horrible
i am REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE with what people call ‘abuse’ from mary. because failing to tell someone about all the horrible dangerous traumatizing shit from your past isn’t abuse. no one should feel entitled to knowing everything about you; that’s something you share with someone as you grow to trust them, not a requirement for a relationship.
and like, we’re actually shown that john hasn’t told mary all about his past, because we know that she didn’t read the blog before sherlock came back because HE told HER it was ‘all ancient history’ and didn’t want her to read it. but mary’s ancient history, that was something she just owed to john, right?
and lmao at ‘she’s abusing john with a baby that’s not his’ haha wow so basically your headcanon is so definitely canon that it ABSOLUTELY DEFINES mary’s canon characterization. wow.
(also ppl keep saying she gaslighted john, and like… gaslighting is when someone points out you did something and you tell them they’re imagining it??? and i have never seen her do that to john???? lying is not the same as gaslighting okay, gaslighting is a very specific type of lying, not all lies are gaslighting)
My abuser said he loved me multiple times a day, said all kinds of things. That abuse was 100% not okay.
Whether someone possibly loves someone else does not make that abuse ok at all.
Sherlock may love John but he’s been terrible to him. John may love Sherlock but he’s been terrible to him. I think it’s important that fandom recognize harmful behaviors. Knowing what red flags look like and being able to recognize them and act on that while they can could be really useful and important.
Wow. Just wow.
I can’t even believe this initial post.
I had NO IDEA the Watson baby was definitely not John’s. This is a headcanon that exists for NO reason other than to demonize Mary.
Mary’s lies weren’t abusive. Mary didn’t lie about who she is. She lied about who she had been. She showed John exactly who she was for four years before they met.
Sherlock getting a pass on drugging John because he “loves John” is classic excuses for abuse. That’s some Fifty Shades of Bullshit.
MARY HAS ABUSED JOHN WITH A BABY? I AM DONE WOW.
#That’s some Fifty Shades of Bullshit. ty!!!
Wait, what? When did we start questioning the paternity of the Watson’s baby? I’m so confused..
So this happened on facebook today….
