You opened it?
honestly i expected joan to make a bigger deal of this than she did. it’s akin to the following imo. a serious violation of privacy. season 1 joan would not have shrugged this off
Poor Joan spends entirely too much time baby sitting grown ass men.
Joan "I’m-Not-Feeding-Them" Watson
i need white women reblogging that gif set of Joan from last night’s episode where she disses the white secretary to stop making comments like “Joan is fighting sexism” because that moment is layered with both race and gender, the two are inextricable. So when Joan, an Asian-American woman sails right past that simpering white girl and takes her rightful place by Sherlock’s side, when Asian women are stereotyped and oh-so-oppressed and timid (often by white feminists/ white women), she’s doing so as a woman of color, an Asian woman. white women are rewarded for performing their Becky-type femininity; they’re coddled for their ignorance and protected and cared for, whereas even the most feminine and soft-spoken WOC gets cast as angry or aggressive or ‘crazy’ if we speak out about the truth in our lives. That moment last night was by a woman of color FOR women of color. it was about how we have to face barriers that white women can never imagine. it’s about how sometimes white women are actively upholding those barriers. so please stop erasing and appropriating Joan’s identity to forward your white feminist agenda that doesn’t even include women who look like Joan.
True. I enjoyed that scene very much because FINALLY Watson imposed herself. If only they had explored more of Joan’s inner thoughts of being dismissed as a secretary/assistant/mascot for white people every fucking time AND wrote a scene of Joan having a serious conversation with the assistant about the whole thing. I wish there was a more substancial follow up to her scenes so we could get more insight into her character :(
