I believe in Sherlock Holmes.

Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of…who do the things that no one can imagine. [x]
sherlock’s name is william which means he named the skull after himself which means out of all the possible nicknames and iterations of william sherlock identifies with billy… do you think they called him billy when he was a little boy… [stares out window]

—friendship is not a requirement of cohabitation.
Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval.

It won’t be like that.
