But seriously, going into STEM is actually a good idea.  There's a 2:1 faculty preference for women:

Furthermore, there is no gender pay gap in tech salaries:

Are you still on about that no-wage-gap falsehood fed to you from the manosphere?

Stay classy, UP.

It didn't come from the manosphere.  It came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

http://www.bls.gov/opub/reports/cps/womensearnings_2012.pdf

And just to clarify, I never said there was no wage gap, only that it was greatly exaggerated.  The BLS notes that there are a number of factors to consider, such as childcare, education, and the number of hours worked.

Regarding a fanfic about Wesley Crusher and Taurik (a male Vulcan) becoming involved (note: the story itself only depicts the two kissing) during the latter's pon farr:

Quote
The writer of that story is a perverted sicko and that story has no place in Trek.

Quote
Could not happen because there are no gays in Star Trek because they have cured all mental illness by the 24th century.

The first quote was seen on a Trek forum in response to the person who posted the link to tease someone about mixing up Taurik with another Vulcan; the second is on the story itself, posted ten minutes before the first, and after the link was posted on the aforementioned forum.

I'm not going to link to the story because the website that hosts it also hosts mature content.

Bruh. Gene Roddenberry wanted to include same-sex couples on that Risa episode on TNG but the studio was the one to shoot that down. Do you even Trek, casual?

Clearly, that's because the studio knew that there are no gays in the 24th century.

But from what that person's posted, I think that fifty years ago he would have objected to this scene.

(There were actually two takes done of that scene, the one that was aired and another tamer one; Shatner hammed up the latter so hilariously that only the aired scene was usable.)

He actually said in a 1991 interview (mentioned here) that he was going to add an LGBT character to the cast of TNG in the upcoming fifth season. Unfortunately, he died early in that season and his successors, who had always disagreed with the idea, didn't go through with it.

I actually thought about this and very strongly suspect that Ro Laren was meant to be this character, but Roddenberry just hadn't outed her by the time he died (in between "The Game" and "Unification, Part 1," I believe). She was introduced very early in Season 5, right around the time Roddenberry would have added this new character to the cast, and after his death there was a long string of episodes where she was just absent. The writers only brought her back starting with "Conundrum," where she was quickly given an amnesia-induced sexual affair with Commander Riker.

I will also note that Michelle Forbes refused to work with Roddenberry's successors on future Star Trek projects, passing up offers to reprise her role on DS9 and Voyager (the roles were changed to Kira Nerys and B'Elanna Torres instead), and when she finally did agree to work for one of them (Ronald D. Moore, who cast her as Admiral Cain on the 2000s Battlestar Galactica), her character was a lesbian.

I can't recall the source, but from what I've read, Ro was specifically introduced in order that she would be moved over to DS9 as the first officer of the station. It's at least part of why "Disaster" was written: the producers wanted to see how Forbes and Colm Meaney (who was moving over to DS9) worked together. Instead, Forbes refused and Nana Visitor was given the first officer part on DS9.

In this edition of "Shit Tankies Say:"

Quote
Imprisoning homosexuals in gulags was a mistake, but not the gulag system itself. Mechanisms of repression are going to exist in any State, as distasteful as this admission is to us. Personally I prefer reeducation centers. Frankly, this obsession of human rights doesn't prevail in the real world unless it's directed toward Marxist or socialist states.

And? Are you going to offer an opinion on that statement, UP?

Or are you understandably reluctant to throw stones in your glass house?

"Ultimate Warrior"
HURRRRR-RRRRR!
XD

Why is Ultimate Warrior already in my ignore list? It can't be because it's just a name change from Ultimate Paragon, can it?

Did UP actually change his name to Ultimate Warrior? Did he change his Avatar to a wrestler? Is that why his motto is the viagra ad and not 'hot blooded christlike christian'?

Don't you know? The Hot-Blooded Christ is tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel.

Was it an April Fool's, it's amazing that he managed to change his motto to one even more homoerotic for Jesus.

By the way, here's some anti-vaxxer bullshit:



"Why don't you wear a helmet?"

"MY HEAD ALREADY HAS PROTECTION AGAINST BLUNT TRAUMA, IT'S CALLED A CRANIUM!"



Autism isn't becoming more common, we're just getting better at identifying it.  And I'd like a source on those statistics.



You'd think this would be the mother of all scandals.  And yet, the media didn't say a peep.
