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.
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.
