    Yo mama :borg:
    I never wanna hear a damn thing about "Gene's vision" ever again after this :lol:

    Gene literally did not give a shit about slash shippers, so long as neither half of Spirk were taking off the other's clothes using zippers:

    :lol:

    It's a great blog from a first-run TOS fangirl who was in her 20s when the show started She unfortunately passed away six months after her first blog entry, but the stuff she did share is a treasure.

    Gene didn't give a fuck about gay men and neither should you, FF. :brood:

    that bit about zippers really gives the ENT episode, "Carbon Creek" new significance....

    You're the idiot who brought it up. So clearly it either upset or offended you (or, more than likely, turned you on) otherwise you wouldn't have mentioned it.

    Normally I dislike it when people put up YouTube links for lengthy videos without summarizing what they are about or why they might be worth our time in watching, but in this case, I'll make an exception.

    The title page of the video explains it AND it was directed at FF. Hopefully he enjoys a taste of his own medicine (and the video).

    FWIW, while it was a nice little way to bop FF with a clue-by-four, it's really worth watching to learn about a big part of our fandom's history and Jessie's got a lot of great Star Trek stuff on her channel. You won't be disappointed :yes:

    You mean @Federal Farmer , @Ancalagon , @Tuckerfan and @Rimjob Bob ? Because once again, I’m not the only one who does that shit, yet I’m the only one who gets called out for it.

    I don’t like it when people read too much into things or attach meanings that probably weren’t there in the first place. Ex. My coworker who’s a homophobe, but probably gay himself thinks Judist Priest’s Breaking the Law is about butt sex. Now granted, it might be, but just because Rob Hanford is gay, it doesn’t mean every one of their songs are about gay shit. Just because the actor that plays Sulu is gay, doesn’t mean the character is gay. The only exception that I grant is gay Top Gun because it’s just funny and I’ll give credit where credit is due, @Shirogayne introduced me to that clip. I’ve never seen Top Gun though.

    "Top Gun" was pretty homoerotic, even in context. Dunno how much of that was the director's personal flair or him trying to portray the Navy in the most accurate light :ramen:

    Anyway, if the sequel doesn't have gay beach volleyball, I'm gonna riot :lol:

    In fairness, it was released about 20 years before you were born.

    "Judas Priest" and "Halford".

    and yeah, about 90% of Priest has been telegraphing "gay shit" since the beginning. Hell-half of 70s metal was telegraphing gay themes that Halford, by taking a page from his own lifestyle to the stage, evolved into leather, studs, and spandex being the signature of metal styles by 1983.

    I know it's pointless to ask, but have you ever considered that just because something wasn't clearly spelled out to a point you got it doesn't mean others are reading too much or imagining them? Shit son, you can't even be arsed to get the names right...

    I'm glad you can appreciate the likewise over the top homoerotic love triangle in Top Gun that's even more obvious than the F-5 "MiGs".

    Technically, Han just shot. No "first", because Greedo didn't even pull out his gun.

    Pretty sure I called out at lest one person for posting to a lengthy video with no further explanation, though I can't remember who it was off the top of my head.

    As a cartoon, I'm way more willing to overlook the use of the reset button. Lower Decks isn't premised on being "serious Trek" like the main shows we've seen from TOS through Discovery.

    This season has been pretty enjoyable so far.

    God knows Lwaxana tried.

    In fact, I think my favorite romance was Lwaxana and Odo. Her two appearances on DS9 were better than almost all of her TNG appearances.

    This is Media Central. Clearly there's flaming going on (on my part as well), and the mods/admins have been tolerant... to a degree.

    But your constant use of "go fuck yourself" over the past few days is a heck of a lot more overt.

    Take that bullshit to the Red Room.

    speaking of...

    the TOS episode, "Plato's Step Children".

    let's just think about that with what we know about Athenian pedagogy, shall we?

    Allegedly the guy in the Pike wheelchair during the chase scene was Alex Kurtzman himself.
