Why is it always ‘queer people are projecting their identities onto characters’ and never ‘straight people are presuming that their identity is the default’?

I was thinking about the movie Frank, and then this sort of just happened.

Hi all!

I’m still on hiatus (meh, sort of) but last night I rewatched The Unicorn and the Wasp – the episode of Doctor Who where Ten and Donna meet Agatha Christie – and I’m absolutely positive I’m not the first person to suggest this but I realized I desperately need this to happen while Capaldi’s the Doctor and I felt like I needed to put it out into the universe (aka Tumblr) immediately:

1. Moffat writes an episode where Twelve meets Arthur Conan Doyle.
2. Arthur Conan Doyle is played by Mark Gatiss. 

3. Twelve, our cranky Scot, and ACD discuss the TRUE nature of the Holmes/Watson relationship and it’s really funny ahaha gay jokes etc, but what it REALLY is is a reenactment of Moffat and Gatiss’s first conversation about Sherlock when they decided to write their own version.
BONUS POINTS IF THE DOCTOR/DOYLE CONVERSATION HAPPENS ON A TRAIN.
O Moffat, hear my plea.

If you watch this show carefully, there is a subtext about John drinking. - Steven Moffat

The ASiB drinking just kills me, it really does.

Another Moriarty headcanon: James Moriarty isn’t his real name, or maybe just the Moriarty part is fake. He made it up to conceal his legal identity and thought it sounded cool. In TGG they said they checked the yearbooks looking for someone who could have killed Carl Powers and couldn’t come up with anything. I always wondered if they went back and checked again after Jim introduced himself, but I bet they still wouldn’t find him…

His real name is Richard Hawkins, brother of Janine Hawkins. He really hates the nickname Ricky but he loves when you call him Dick. He’s not the Richard Hawkins who makes clarinet mouthpieces but he has mad respect for that line of work (subtextually speaking).

A recent essay lists arguments summing up problems with TJLC in relation to queer representation on television, and how—should TJLC be real—it would be (and is)…

Really well said. Thank you in particular for pointing out that in the end, it really does seem like many TJLCers and anti-TJLCers are so passionate about this topic for the same reason – a desire for the right kind of queer representation in the media. I think that because the majority of TJLC related posts floating out there are brief (headcanons, gifs, and the like) and are often silly or (knowingly) exaggerated, while the posts that get to the meat of what TJLC really is are long and require a careful read, there’s an understandable misinterpretation of what the “conspiracy” is actually about.
