Well, everybody has their own point of view. And I don’t think it’s extremely racist because I think that Sherlock is just returning the favor(I mean, 103 in the pool with Moriarty). I don’t want to start a new debate here because this subject has been fully debated online. And I’ve read many of them so I understand what some people think about this and somewhat agree with them. But I also know there was no correct conclusion. It can be racist to some people but not to other people. I just want to think Sherlock found out that she’s the one who accidentally saved Sherlock and John’s lives.
Frankly speaking, I don’t like that part either. I even don’t watch that part whenever I watch 201, which is kinda always, and I totally agree with you that it’s unnecessary for the plot and characters. But I thought Benedict with the sword was very sexy, so wanted to see some more. Then there probably should be Irene scenes too, I thought. That’s all that I thought when I made that gifset. If I said that I just wanted to see more Benedict and no more Irene, I could be misogynic to some people too. I’ve already heard that.
And more importantly, was there a rule that bans people from making gifs with this scene? I don’t think so. So I think you saying this to me is unnecessary, I’m afraid. Sorry.
