BUT he got some things about the future right. Interracial coupling. We have phasers, communicators.

I'm pretty sure interracial couples were around long before Star Trek. As for phasers and communicators. the invention of these were probably inspired by Star Trek.

I feel like leftist SJW snowflakes are more like Tribbles; useless little fuzzballs that do absolutely nothing but whine, reproduce and take up space.

Oh my! Are you triggered? Quick! Grab a tribble and pet it!

In a recent thread from someone about government influences in media, I responded with a post that I've found PC doctrines as the basic backbone of every episode of Star Trek:The Next Generation.

Recently, I've watched almost all of the episodes of the several years of that show and it never deviates from being totally PC between members of the crew and in their challenges with other beings. In the latter situation, the rules of PC are hammered across time and time again to lesser evolved beings.

The "Prime Directive" is mentioned almost constantly (even if most shows involve some manner of weapons blasting from some one).

That's not entirely true. For example, in an episode I watched recently Crusher was ragging on Riker, La Forge and Worf about their beards basically being "male pride" symbols. They denied this, but she said if it is, there's nothing wrong with that. Leftists heads would explode at a future woman saying it's ok for men to be proud of their maleness. That is an anti-PC statement these days.

Oh I don't care about the OP or what anyone thinks to be honest.

You can approach TV, movies and books in two ways:

1) Break it down to find the "message" that is suppose to be conveyed, assign labels to characters, groups, places, etc, etc, and try to make some sort of real life meaning into it.

OR

2) Simply enjoy the story, be entertained by it, relax and stop trying to force meaning into every single thing that comes out.

I'm a number 2 person. I spend WAY too much of real life having to do number 1. Be damned if I'm going to do number 1 when I simply want something to entertain me and allow me to escape real life.

Especially when I spend part of that free time having to deal with people here (uuuhhhhggggg).

Exactly. Enjoy what you do without looking for agendas. Personally I don't care much for Nugents politics but that didnt stop me from ordering Great Gonzos 10 minutes ago.
Why would Iet that stop me?

I think you're right. The SJW movement at this time supports positive masculinity if it's not gender-specific--or otherwise toxic:
www.pride.com - How to Curb Fragile Masculinity...

Masculinity creates confining — and oppressive — expectations for everyone.


Would it be so terrifying to not have to genderize everything? To not create things specific to masculinity so they are not somehow confused as feminine? How would it feel to not have to hide an important, male friendship behind the term "bromance?" No you’re not wearing a "manbag," you’re wearing a handbag; not because you’re feminine, but because that’s a bag in your hand. You want to give someone of your gender a hug? Wouldn't it be nice to gave them that hug and not have to say the requisite “no homo” as you did it?

Yes, toxic masculinity is a thing:
www.huffingtonpost.com - More Men Should Learn The Difference Between Masculinity and Toxic Masculinity...
www.salon.com - Patriarchy and toxic masculinity are dominating America under Trump...

Below it's seen beards are recent. It's a response to growing feminism, decreasing muscularity and other. Confused men sensed an attack on their masculinity, so the beard became a symbol:

This should be in the Hoax or LOL bin, sorry. If you read the original story and what the producers actually said it's quite clear Trek is going to do what Trek has always done.

The lengths Brietbart readers go to in order to feel offended. It's bizarre.


It's no wonder why all these people keep on saying that white males (such as myself) are "the most discriminated segment of the population on Earth," actual ATS quote lol guess who from....

Anyway, they make things up and then proceed to get butt hurt about them.... and then go around screaming about how triggered everyone is for laughing at their stupidity lol

Lol I feel like Trump and his supporters are more like a Ferengi.



Don't mention the Clinton Foundation.

From the Ferengi book of Acquisition: "Treat everyone like family - exploit them for everything that they have got."

You quote four articles and want to claim that all of "some group, somewhere" feels the same way?

Not to mention, cherry-picking the articles you did quote?

Have you ever considered, just for a moment, that there's a difference between "being a man" and "being masculine"?

Frankly, you sound like you're troubled with self-doubts and you want to blame it on "SJWs."
