hell yeah i want sci-fi to consider the female audience ‘cause it so often doesn’t do that!!!
but oh my god does it make me laugh that the writers of the trek reboot were so completely, woefully uneducated about the star trek fanbase that they thought they’d be the first folks to get the ladies into star trek (and that they’d need to do so with anything other than compelling, dynamic female crew members like in the original series)
like excuse me
do you even know anything
dear j.j. abrams,
For what it’s worth, David Gaider has said on Twitter about the Cameron Lee romance interview that:
Really wish the topic hadn’t been broached like that. Ah, well. All will be cleared up in time. [X]
So it seems that maybe what was said wasn’t necessarily what was meant, and that perhaps that whole bit about “realistic” sexuality and characters with “one solid sexual orientation” just came out wrong.
IDK if that helps put anyone’s mind at ease about the interview at all; I just thought I’d pass the comment along.
this one seems particularly appropriate:
if these misogynist neckbeards keep sending me asks i’m gonna run out of laugh gifs pretty soon
(that’s a lie i’ll never run out of gifs)
OH MY GOD IT GOT EVEN FUNNIER
