gingermous asked: Do you think that society is modernizing in terms of accepting the changing gender roles of man and woman ( meaning a man can be seen as effeminate, and a woman as masculine and not be ridiculed as gay or strange), or is it something else?

Watson:  I think that no part of culture is more invested in maintaining and perpetuating gender roles than film culture.

Holmes:  Disagree.

Watson:  What a surprise.

Holmes:  I would say that there is no sector more dedicated to perpetuating and exploiting gender stereotypes than advertising.

Watson:  Yeah, I’ll give you that one.

Holmes:  You and I aren’t the best people to ask, though.

Watson:  Why not?  What’s wrong with us?

Holmes:  Not a thing.  But we’re British, which in Hollywood-driven gender culture means we automatically lose a few macho points off the top.

Who is the MadLori?

I'm Lori. I'm 40, a scientist and a freelance writer). Fanfiction is my drug of choice. This is where I dump all my obsessive fannishness along with whatever else strikes me. At the moment the dominant fandom is Sherlock. That can change at anytime. Be warned. Eye protection should be worn in this area.

I am also a crafter and I have an Etsy store.

You're probably after fic. My fic can be found here at AO3 or here at LJ. The LJ post is more complete for now. Moving fic over to AO3 is a pain in my hinder. I also have some stuff at ff.net under MadLori as well.

I have published one novel, a gay romantic thriller, under my pseudonym. You can buy it here or at Amazon.
