My Birthday

Here’s what I would love for my birthday: Everyone with a Twitter (or, even better, some line of direct communication) should tweet at Star Trek cast members and Ben Folds and try to get me a shoutout of some variety. Personalized would be preferable, and if you can get Ben to record a song that would be even more preferable

The Kellie Waymire Project

"I’m sharing this because this is a project that I am involved with and really believe is worthwhile. Kellie Waymire was an actress who appeared in "Star Trek: Enterprise" and "Six Feet Under," among other things, and who tragically died young due to mitral valve prolapse.

What this project aims to do is raise money to donate to charities or hospitals that support research and/or treatment of this issue. A 100% voluntary donation would get you a piece of writing/artwork/video/etc. of your choosing, be it within the Star Trek fandom or outside of the Star Trek fandom.

This project is just in its infancy right now, but I’m happy to donate what limited writing skills I have to helping a project that I think has the potential to make a difference. If you would be interested in donating your skills as a writer, artist, video maker, or any other sort of artistic medium to this project, contact Bee Bones, who is the genius behind this project and someone I’m incredibly proud to call my friend.”

I would also be totally down to do some Trek fandom writing. I specialize in Next Generation characters, but there are a few fandoms for which I would be comfortable writing. You can see samples of my roleplaying at askcaptainpicard.tumblr.com and worfsonofmogh.tumblr.com as well as some of my original fiction at gameslonga.tumblr.com. Please please please spread the word about this project, as I believe it has a lot of merit.

When I was a kid, you know I immigrated to the States in 1978, and I’m six years old and watching TV and I didn’t see any Asians on television. And you turn on Star Trek and there’s this Asian guy not chopping anybody up. He’s honorable, a helmsman of a spaceship, and it was a big, big deal for me to see that and have a role model.

God, this photo bugs me so much. Our generation is pretty kickass when it comes to accepting people and ignoring societal bullshit and blahblahwhatever. Yeah, there’s still a long way to go, but it really is amazing, when you think about it, how much better we are on average with that stuff than our parents.
So the implication that this situation depicted is inherently a bad thing, or a sad thing, and seeing how many people reblog it as if to agree, bugs me. Just because a man has had more sexual encounters than his partner—male or female—should have no bearing on the particular engagement in sex with that partner. Why is this photo trying to convey a sense of tragedy, and shame? I’ve noticed that in films and such, when a woman has had sex with multiple partners, she’s portrayed as sexually free and independent, but when it’s a man, he’s a horndog and a player and he has to be reformed through monogamous twue wove.
Before anyone bitches at me—yes, there is a double standard in our society. Yes, this double standard usually plays in favor of men. But also yes, those men are often demonized for fitting that double standard. And it bugs me that there is this double-standard, but it also bugs me that, on this website in particular, so many people are continuing to play into it and keeping it going. Fuck the double standard. Be true in your feelings with someone and nothing else should matter.
If the man and woman in this photo are consenting adults who have control of their faculties, if they love each other, if they care about each other, or if they simply are looking to have a pleasurable experience together, then notches on the belt are of no consequence.
A reading from the vlog of John Green:
“‘Do you think it matters how many people someone’s slept with?’ No—and it really bothers me that women are held to a different standard on this front than men. Also, it’s such a weird thing to care about; like imagine if I started eating Cheerios for breakfast—would Cheerios be like ‘I’M THE FORTY-EIGHTH CEREAL YOU’VE TRIED EATING? I DON’T FEEL SPECIAL!’ Well then, screw you, Cheerios. I can’t go into the past and un-eat all those cereals, but that doesn’t mean I don’t genuinely enjoy your whole-grain crunch.”

Officially Convinced

That it will be okay.

I’m going to have a breakdown if my life keeps going where I can’t control it.
