I remember when I very first played Garak, I played him gay! I thought this would be great! He sees this young man, this young, very attractive doctor on the station, he is lonely, he is the only Cardassian there, this doctor is curious about him, and if you remember, this was a great moment because Sid totally went with it! When he comes up and he puts his hand on his shoulder, Sid did this great thing, it was this sort of an electrical charge that went through him and so I played him totally gay in that episode.
Of course the producers did not actually tell me not to play him gay but then they started writing him a little more macho and more like a Cardassian. But I said, “Listen, one of the great things about Garak is that he is not Gul Dukat, he is not one of those macho, militaristic guys, he is your finesse Cardassian.” So we struck a compromise but I was always very clear. I did not get into it in the book. Quite frankly, I was going to go in that direction. I had written a whole thing about Garak’s sexuality because I felt that Garak was sort of - talk about bisexual, I think that he was multisexual, essentially that anything that moves is fair game for Garak. He has a voracious sexual appetite."

I liked this so I could come back and find it. I don’t like it. I hate it. I want to punch this kid in the face.
Gaga has a lot of problems, a massive list of problems, but whatever else she is, she’s also a bisexual woman and policing her queerness is bullshit. erasing her queerness is bullshit.
all the people I see tagging this post and the other, with the actual video, with “LGBT,” why are you bothering to include the B? what do you think it stands for? because supporting the erasure of Gaga’s queerness says to me that you either don’t believe the B exists, don’t believe it has the same value as the L, G, and T, or you feel qualified to judge who is and who isn’t queer. and if you believe any of those things, fuck you.
and if people don’t know that Gaga is bisexual, and that’s why they’re supporting this, that’s even more reason to stop doing it. if her queer identity wasn’t constantly being denied and erased, then you would know.
assigning value to or privileging some kinds of queerness over others is damaging as hell and ignorant as fuck. if you want to take on all the ways that Gaga is problematic, go for it, I’ll be right there with you. but saying she’s not queer enough is bullshit.

Taking down Moriarty’s web took a little longer than expected, but London’s favorite partners in crime solving are finally back together again! (“Fifty-three years, Sherlock!” “What?” “I SAID, FIFTY-THREE YEARS!!!” “WHAT??”) Everything happily goes back to normal again, except for maybe a few changes! Mrs. Hudson is still alive, but she’s a computer now (the hip’s doing fine)! Lestrade retired twenty years ago but the duo still bother him for cases all the time! The Game just ain’t as Great as it was back in my day! The Blind Banker is actually going blind! Help, I’ve Reichenbach Fallen and I can’t get up!
Okay, so Sherlock and John have to take two-hour naps in between cases and no longer have teeth, but hey, you finally got your Season 3, so who’s complaining?! OH! GOD! IRENE! NOT THE BATTLE DRESS! NO!
