Thought I would get some discussion going!!!

I know that the members of this community are capable of engaging in intelligent and informed discussions and conversations on Sherlock.

So I am posting here a very controversial article from the New Statesman which provoked a lot of discussion when it was printed.

The article is titled "No shit, Sherlock" written by Laurie Penny. She says "we need to stop rehashing tired formulations of hierarchy and privilege and start telling some new stories".

The article is here:

This article provoked a very strong reaction in me as I feel very strongly about what she has written.

However, I would like to hear what other people think first before I stick in my two penneth. So read the article, and then post your views/reactions.
