[quote quote=4110]I think we have parallel threads running for this topic. I wonder if it’s possible to combine them?

Sarah,

Due to the limitations of Twitter I wasn’t able to respond immediately the way I wanted. Ultimately, my response was thank you for posting this, because all it takes is one voice to start a snowball effect that can cause great change.

The timing of your post was unnerving, as I had just started a similar conversation on my Facebook page in reference to an article that was done on Benedict Cumberbatch.

The article discusses some of the unwanted attention he’s received by “fans,” and it started a tangent for me by reminding me of some Twitter responses I’d seen directed at Sam Heughan in the last few days. This segways into the parallel thread that I linked at the top of my response. I look forward to the dialog to follow on this topic.
