The Ministry of Magic and the wizarding community of Great Britain as a whole have been operating autonomously from the Union for centuries, and have their own thriving economy and currency, and strong relationships with their global counterparts.
Spokespersons for the Minister for Magic admit she is still “on the fence” about Scotland’s independence bid, weighing up positives such as the ability to cut a deal directly with the Scottish government in tackling the Grindylow overpopulation in the Northern lochs, against controversial negatives such as “[sic] Muggles are hard enough to categorise as it is”.
I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.
Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.
Not mayo on white bread.
Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.
a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act

not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man
