Theories and Facts, or, why does the idea that Sherlock Holmes is asexual seem to be so unregarded? by ArgentNoelle
17 Jan 2018
In the ACD stories Sherlock Holmes is canonically asexual (”canonically”, as in: it’s not like he literally says that but explaining why he’s *not* requires much more mental gymnastics than just going with what is portrayed by his words, actions, and non-interest in canon), but in pretty much every adaptation ever made, people feel the need to shoehorn in a love interest (usually Irene Adler, who honestly deserves better). [And this is despite the fact that I rather enjoyed most of the Mary Russell novels.]
