plaeto asked: I love this blog, I really do, Moffat gets way too much praise for his lazy writing, but I can’t help feel you might take some things too far or too literally. You say calling someone a sociopath is offensive and ableist, trivializing OCD to be offensive and disrespectful and that mere kissing is sexual assault, so to be clear, do you consider anything at all offensive to anyone to be wrong and therefore unfit for broadcast/publication?
Calling someone a sociopath IS offensive and ableist.
Trivialising OCD IS offensive and disrespectful and also ableist.
Kissing people without their consent IS sexual assault. Any nonconsensual physical contact and unwanted sexual advances is all considered sexual assault and/or harassment.
All of this is offensive and yes, is wrong and should be unfit for broadcast/publication because normalisation of these actions allows people to think we’re overreacting.

Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”
