We’re just alike, you and I.
Oh geez! I never noticed this before!!!
haha it’s funny because it’s a coincidence, like one scenario is heterosexual and it’s understood to be sexualized, and the other one is homosexual and thus not sexual at all, haha, haha, haha, it’s like the writers don’t even know what they’re doing lol I bet they feel silly now bromance friends platonic
I want to point out that the second is intended to be sexualized because Jim maintains eye contact the entire time that the female guard is getting his gum with the intention to unnerve her, the gum is in the pocket of his trousers, he doesn’t ask her for gum and instead asks her to slip her hand into his pocket, and the fact that he sticks his tongue out to take a piece. Sexual harassment is everywhere.
On the other hand, Sherlock asks John to get his phone in an emotionless tone and clearly states that his phone is the goal rather some allusion to his penis, he doesn’t meet John’s eyes, it’s in his jacket, John gets it without feeling trapped under Sherlock’s gaze and is more relaxed about it. There is a clear difference.
