Do some sherlock fans still not realise that they are demonizing donovan and anderson by reducing them to one-dimensional characters tied entirely to their interactions with sherlock (“bitch” or “idiot”, respectively) while getting mad at those characters for referring to sherlock in similar terms based solely on those characters’ interactions with him?
Yes but I think we are allowed to read into this. How they must have been calling them these things for years. We are allowed not to like them for treating Sherlock like shit because we know how much it hurts to be called a freak.
Sherlock slut-shames Donovan in the first episode and calls Anderson an idiot numerous times of course they don’t particularly like him? If he didn’t insult them so much I have a feeling they wouldn’t mind working with him?
They’re the only two people who don’t treat Sherlock any differently for being rude simply because he’s a genius. They expect him to still follow the rules for proper interaction or maybe simply ignore them but he’s callous and harsh. Basically we’re demonizing the two people in the entire show who have the most natural reaction to Sherlock’s behavior.
