Somebody, who shall remain nameless but who knows who they are, deserves a great big old this right now:
Why? Because this friend of mine bought me a pair of really super pretty clip-on earrings!
The color is slightly washed out in the picture, but they’re this darker green kinda emeraldy color. They’re really pretty and as soon as I think my ears are fully healed I’ll start wearing them!
- Gene Roddenberry: Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. […] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there
- JJ Abrams: lets just... lets just bLOW UP vulcan and commit genocide
- You know as nice a thought as this is, the fact that they're putting those words into Gene Roddenberry's mouth, when Gene was horribly sexist who monopolized his control over the franchise to where no one could ever write in his world because all of his characters were perfect, except in the ways they were sexist and racist and all sorts of things. Say what you will about the occasional bit of progressivism but to call old Trek all that more progressive than nuTrek is, to be frank, bullshit. And I say that as a lifelong Trekkie, who can and will happily back up her claims if challenged.
