Can we please stop "warning" for slash? WHY ARE WE STILL DOING THIS? WHY IN 2010 DO I STILL HAVE TO THROW A FIT OVER SHIT LIKE "Warnings: implied homosexuality" (HEY WHY NOT WARN FOR THE PAIRING TOO WHILE YOU'RE AT IT). HOMOSEXUALITY DOES NOT COME WITH A WARNING. IT'S TWO PEOPLE FUCKING AND/OR IN LOVE AND THEY HAPPEN TO BOTH HAVE THE SAME BITS AND ANYONE WHO FINDS THAT THOUGHT SOMEHOW DISTURBING DOES NOT DESERVE A "WARNING" SO CUT IT OUT. I MEAN WHAT THE FUCK. If you want to make it explicit somewhere that your story features GAY SEX OMG, put it in the notes or in the rating, BUT DON'T CALL IT A FUCKING WARNING BECAUSE THAT IS ACTUALLY KIND OF HURTFUL IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, YOU KNOW.

Also, to the girl over at this crossover big bang challenge we just signed up for like crazy people who are capable of handling deadlines but hey, you get artwork out of it, right, only the artist-to-author ratio right now is kind of disheartening, so maybe not, anyway to the girl who said about her story that it might include some slash, but only two pages or so, so she could make that optional if people who don't like slash want to skip it--- I don't even know where to start, here, but I think that if your narrative includes two people of the same sex being in love then your narrative includes two people of the same sex being in love and if you feel that this is optional then maybe that's an issue with your narrative, not your audience, AND THERE'S REALLY NOT MUCH MORE I CAN SAY HERE WITHOUT COMING ACROSS AS MAYBE A LITTLE BIT IMPOLITE.

OH MY GOD. I usually try and ignore this shit, but recently the "warnings" for slash have been everywhere and it has just become TOO MUCH TO SWALLOW.

(That's what she said.)

I'm leaving this public because anything else would be stupid, but man I hope it doesn't end up anywhere wanky. THERE WAS JUST SO MUCH RAGE I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

okay so was i the only one that didn't know that brannon braga is a blithering twit? because i feel as if i should, since this talk was in 2006.

And most importantly to the context of our meeting here today, religion is completely gone. Not a single human being on Earth believes in any of the nonsense that has plagued our civilization for thousands of years.

so i guess that explains why star trek exists in a world with absolutely no diversity of culture whatsoever? GOOD TO KNOW.

THE WORLD IS NOT A JOHN LENNON SONG. OR THE BORG.

And while we're at it, and this isn't cm now, but she thought it would be fun to have us both frothing and angry in one post, so let's harsh some White Collar squee. )


...got a little carried away there at the end. I still love you more than most things, fandom! AND JUST TO END THIS POST ON A HAPPY NOTE, co-journaller and I watched Farscape 2x19 - 3x01 just now and I sobbed like a little bitch at, you know, that scene in the season finale. Stupid, heartbreaking, amazing, depressing, disgusting show. ♥♥♥

cm: IT'S EPISODE ONE ALL OVER AGAIN
me: ahahaha it's so much worse
    my god how utterly horrible OH MY GOD
  OH MY GOOOOOOOD
  WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL US SHOW
  WHAT
cm: ALL WOMEN VALUE THEMSELVES ONLY BY THEIR LOOKS
  AND ARE JUDGED THUSLY
me: ALWAYS AND FOREVER
cm: FOREVER AND YES
me: THERE IS NO ESCAPE
  oh my god
  oh my god
cm: ...
me: oh my god
cm: ...
me: oh my god

That would be the co-journaller and me watching the ST:TOS episode #3, Mudd's Women (oh God the title alone), actually managing to form a semi-coherent thought before falling back into an endless stream of "oh my god why is this happening" and wordless incredulity. I mean, you kind of want to laugh at how incredibly offensive the entire thing is, but it's actually not really very funny?

Other things I choose to be offended by this week: all the overly sexual child abuse prompts over at the Kink Meme (Jim/Frank, people? Really?), women who write Uhura as a cunt just so Jim and his rapist Spock can get together, people who then read all eight chapters of that story despite all the careful warnings and leave angry comments as if they now didn't have to comment on every *other* fic that shoves aside Uhura to get a better look at the blond hero, the entire genre of "slave fic", the male gaze, people who needlessly crowd my space in checkout lines, the fact that I have to send back the third book from Amazon in the past month because of shoddy quality, do they store their merchandise in filthy crates, what is this shit?

Things that make me happy: the fact that Majel Barrett-Roddenberry appeared in every single Star Trek series (namely as Number One, Nurse Chapel, the computer, and Deanna Troi's hot, hot Mom ♥♥♥), fic about Spock Prime and how heartbroken and entirely badass he is, Rainald Grebe live in three days, people who make me laugh uncontrollably and/or write me porn in chat, icecream, shower sex.

You're welcome.

ETA: ONE MORE THING. Drop Dead Diva - such an iffy premise, such an awesome show. It easily passes the Bechdel Test (in fact, almost all the major characters happen to be women), the second-loveliest character on the show who you first think is supposed to be the superficial cliché bimbo turns out to be a *human being* who is *lovely* and kind and goofy, and the main character is AMAZING. After the first couple of episodes where you think, oh yes, being stuck in this body sucks for you Deb, cry me a river, she realizes that, fuck this shit, she's awesome, and proceeds to kick so much ass as Jane!Deb you just kind of want to jump and down with glee, but maybe that's just us. We spend a lot of the show going "oh Jeb <3" (PS. WHERE THE FUCK IS FRED.)
