oh my god
Best commentary on racist typecasting.
[Image: A photograph of an introduction to a book, it reads “‘Martin, you’ve been asked to go in for a modern adaptation of Sherlock Holmes.’ Uh-oh. Alarms went of in my head. What would ‘modern’ mean, in TV terms? Deductions being rapped? Holmes and Watson bombing around London in a Lexus on their way to meet with Lestrade, a wheelchair-bound lesbian with a penchant for Class-As at lunchtime?”]
Let’s all take a moment to appreciate Martin’s introduction to The Sign Of Four
Well, I need Martin to become a writer immediately.
How hilarious that Lestrade could have been a disabled lesbian. I’m laughing my socks off. People who aren’t straight! Disabled people! Women! LOL
good job he’s a cishet abled white male, society can relax because scary marginalised groups aren’t on tv.
The question is how do people who publish these things forget that a lot of disabled lesbians can read and might want books that don’t mock them on the first page?
what a disgusting piece of shit
Hilarious. He’s racist, ableist and heterosexist all in one go.
Nice. Newsflash - people like you described actually fucking exist, Martin. Stop being a fucking asshat at every opportunity, hmm?
In what non-shitty universe is that vaguely funny?
