So I walk on uplands unbounded, and know that there is hope for that
which Thou didst mold out of dust to have consort with things eternal.

How Does Your Favorite Star Trek Series Fare on the Bechdel Test?

image

I posted a version of this once but …. I worship Captain Janeway and will forever point out that Voyager kicked ass on this test.

Boom, Muthafucka! You’ve been Janewayed!

JANEWAYED!!!

I helped compile some of the data for Jarah! It was so much fun studying the eps and horrifying when they didn’t pass…

Gaa! I love first of all that the project got made into an awesome graphic post, and second, that I can now use the phrase, “You’ve been Janewayed.”

There have been two small corrections since the Mary Sue article and graphs were published and unfortunately I haven’t had time to update the graphs yet. Luckily they don’t change the series’ relative positions.

So just posting here for accuracy’s sake: TOS is at 8.8% (I missed “By Any Other Name”, which passes) and Voyager is at 93.8% in Season 1 and 87.5% overall. Initially I had counted “Caretaker” as a fail when in fact it passes because Janeway talks to Kes about the tunnels going down to the Ocampa settlement.

Thanks again for sharing!

Star Trek OTPs

Voyager:

Janeway/Coffee

Seven/Torres

TNG:

Picard/Crusher (with divorce, just as in canon, but OTP nonetheless)

Data/Geordi

Riker/Q

Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.

A woman’s place is in the struggle. HELL YEAH.

“My colleagues and I refer to this belief as ‘The Boiler Theory of Men.’ The idea is that a person can only tolerate so much accumulated pain and frustration. If it doesn’t get vented periodically—kind of like a pressure cooker—then there’s bound to be a serious accident. This myth has the ring of truth to it because we are all aware of how many men keep too much emotion pent up side. Since most abusers are male, it seems to add up.

But it doesn’t, and here’s why: Most of my clients are not usually repressed. In fact, many of them express their feelings more than some nonabusive men. Rather than trapping everything inside, they actually tend to do the opposite: They have an exaggerated idea of how important their feelings are, and they talk about their feelings—and act them out—all the time, until their partners and children are exhausted from hearing about it all. An abuser’s emotions are as likely to be too big as too small. They can fill up the whole house. When he feels bad, he thinks that life should stop for everyone else in the family until someone fixes his discomfort. His partner’s life crises, the children’s sicknesses, meals, birthdays—nothing else matters as much as his feelings.

It is not his feelings the abuser is too distant from; it is his partner’s feelings and his children’s feelings. Those are the emotions that he knows so little about and that he needs to ‘get in touch with.’ My job as an abuse counselor often involves steering the discussion away from how my clients feel and toward how they think (including their attitudes toward their partner’s feelings). My clients keep trying to drive the ball back into the court that is familiar and comfortable to them, where their inner world is the only thing that matters.”

"I know this sounds bad, but I’m just being honest: i’ve never actually given any thought to how my abusive behaviour affects you."

OMG this is so true.

Wow yeah, you’re totally right, I suppose saying that he was alive for those three years between it being formed and him freezing was totally unreasonable and wrong, and I mean it’s not like there were any such thing as furloughs, nope, it was just five straight years of fighting Nazis without a break for him, IT’S NOT LIKE FURLOUGHED SOLDIERS EVER WOULD’VE GONE TO A BASEBALL GAME no you’re right I’m the uncultured swine here my mistake.

yo okay that tagger is actually outright wrong for MCU because Steve got hella rejected 4F for a couple of years

according to the MCU wiki Steve didn’t actually successfully join and get Erskine’s serum until June 1943; subsequently he was a USO performer across the US and not actually a soldier on the front for like, five months. Just to make sure this was still cool beans, I asked wiki the dates for the league and it started up May 30, 1943. i think this means Steve could have gone to games both pre- and post-serum, you know, in between kicklines and grinning with shy pride at his own propaganda films. Maybe the girls dragged him to see a game—can you imagine Captain America in the stands with all his back-up dancers and they’re all yelling louder than he is HEY BATTER BATTER WHOOP

Reblogging in part for the extra info, but mostly because if the idea of one of the chorus girls in Steve’s act having a sister in the AAPGBL and Steve all hopeful about maybe getting her autograph doesn’t make your heart do completely treacherous things, I don’t know what to tell you.

Excuse me,

There’s no crying in baseball

(Also, we need an image of this for the 4th, because it doesn’t get more American than this)

Steve Rogers and Bucky watch women's baseball

Guys my photoshop is still awesome. See, Steve and Bucky went to a game before Bucky shipped out, and Bucky is just enjoying it but Steve is taking it really seriously.
