…except for one female-only romance in Deep Space 9 which ended after half an episode and was in itself illicit for reasons other than the fact Lieutenant Dax was kissing a woman, not a single character in any Star Trek series or film has been openly gay or lesbian. (As an aside: sci fi seems far more comfortable with lesbian romance than gay; probably something to do with the assumed audience being mostly straight and male, thus supposedly titillated by the idea.)

There are two reasons for this lack of representation. The hand-wringing, slightly mealy-mouthed explanation given by Gene Roddenberry when asked about the subject was that because people in his future didn’t care about sexuality, it didn’t need to be shown (despite straight male and female characters having sex all the time). Then there’s the real one, which is that ABC executives, all the way up to the end of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2004, were phenomenally uncomfortable with showing, or even implying the possibility of, same-sex couples on-screen. They figured it was a money-loser, was too controversial for US audiences, and so vetoed any real attempt at including gay characters in the franchise. Deep Space 9’s Cardassian tailor Garak, for instance, was supposed to be bisexual, but ABC vetoed the idea. To his credit, Andy Robinson, who played Garak, didn’t take this lying down and made up for it by flirting heavily with one of the more attractive male lead characters (Siddig El Fadil’s Dr Julian Bashir) non-stop for 7 series.

the fact that this is to the tune of “Oh How They Did Firk It” seems spot on to me.

  • Question: prompt: Cosima is helping Kira learn the periodic table (via jazzy ukulele melody perhaps) and notices Sarah is trying to slyly learn it too - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    cheeky-geek-m0nkey:

    "Okay sooooo,” Cosima singsonged, tightening the chords of her ukelele and glancing at Kira, who sat cross-legged and enthralled, “you’re singing it with me this time, yea?” 

    Kira smiled, and Cosima starting toddling at the strings, “Okay now deeeeeep breath,” she puffed her cheeks out and sucked in dramatically, which made both Kira and Sarah laugh as the tune rose in quick succession. 

    Later that week, Sarah walked down the street, her head bobbing to the beat of her feet, sighing the periodic elements under her breath and smiling, thinking of the way Cosima squealed, her tongue between her teeth, when her daughter sang the entire song on her own — her two favorite monkeys, being bloody geeky as hell

"In a relationship, you need somebody who’s going to call you out, not somebody who’s going to let everything slide. You need somebody who doesn’t want to live without you, but can. Not somebody that is dependent, but somebody who is stronger with you. A relationship is two people, not one."

If there is that one person in your life that is always there for you no matter how you treat them, and listens when no one else does, and just cares and comforts you even in your darkest moments, do not EVER let them go. Ever.
