Re: What book are you reading?

I am currently reading Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice.

I'm about a quarter of the way through it, but it feels like I'm slogging through thick mud. Her other Vampire novels moved along much better than this one. But I will continue on. :?

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

And for more news about season 3 of Discovery , a new trailer was released today: 70dm3WzNuss I like what I see in this trailer. It has a very cinematic feel to it. I will admit to being a little bit apprehensive. Now that they aren't bound by canon (in the sense of no longer being in the 23rd centu...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

"the people" I am speaking of, are the people on forums, the moderators etc who when they see criticism of a character like Burnham automatically assume the criticism is based on some agenda. Not the writers of the show. That is the point I am making. Given that your previous post: I was saying the...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

I think there is clearly a policy where having a trans or non binary person in a show could lead to people using that to attack people who will complain. What evidence do you have to support that such a policy exists? the fact a moderator on trekcore accused me of being a bigot and banned me. Assho...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

The idea is simple. Introduce a POC character, don't put a lot of effort into the writing, if someone criticizes it deflect the criticism by saying they don't like it because of the race/sexual of the character they are complaining about. Various websites back up the narrative that the people who d...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

gay white males are rarer, we got one of them black gay males rarer again...got one of them Trans people are rarer....need I go on ? My point about demographics isn't to say there has to be a certain number from this group or a certain number from that group. (And yes, sometimes you'll get more tha...

... because they are large groups of people
Straight white males aren't a large group. At 5.5% of the human population you would expect to see maybe one straight white male in the main cast which we did (season one, Lorca, and season two, Pike) just as we did on DS9 and VOY.

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 3

because the past shows had over representation does not negate the point I am making for this show, deflecting to say the old shows did this and that, is an entirely different argument and deflection tactic. Not at all. I am merely pointing out that what Discovery has done concerning the main cast ...
