There are definitely people who could be considered white by today's standards that wore locked hair in classical antiquity, but I never see any whites claiming it's in their Slavic heritage to be allowed to lock their hair. It's always "Well Vikings did it so it's okay" but actually no they didn't, except MAYBE Vikings with mixed Slavic heritage.

I generally don't mind what people do with their hair, but claiming dreads were worn by ancient Celtic and Germanic peoples is ahistorical

There's ~475 people in my neighborhood mutual aid organization's Slack and that's more than I anticipated but still has so much room to grow

Someone said the word "pansexual" on Star Trek, society has come so far

This show continues to impress me with its ability to ruthlessly kill characters who have been in every episode so far

This Spock is pretty good but he weirdly seems like he's imitating the Zachary Quinto version?

I've only been misgendered irl once, and I was a skinny teen boy with a ponytail of long golden ringlets, wearing a McDonald's uniform, so I can understand. This is the second time over the phone. Do I have a feminine voice??

Show thread

I got misgendered on the phone again, which hasn't happened in almost a decade. I don't know what to call it, as a cis man.

"Press F to Pay Respects" is the single funniest thing ever put into any video game

The etymology of "weeb" is just the stupidest shit in the world. I can never get mad at slang in fiction knowing how utterly ludicrous slang is irl.

I wonder if you could have a nice little trilogy with The Cage, If Memory Serves, and The Menagerie. Probably there will be something in Strange New Worlds that fits in there, what with Pike and his weird box he lives in.

The real "The Cage" was actually continuity the whole time

That's a helluva "Previously on..." huh? It's as previous as you can get.

For some reason this planet just drives Spock WILD, makes him go coocoo bananas

So Spock is... space dyslexic. Hm.

Anyway socialism or barbarism. A working class racist is far easier to convert to the cause of leftist revolution than a college-educated liberal who moans constantly about "normalcy". Who do you think is gonna throw the molotov at the bank, the dude who subscribes to NYT and voted for Obama, or the dude who spends his weekends getting drunk and shooting guns in the woods?
