A midnight screening of #StarTrek. It’s only logical. (at AMC Loews Newport Centre 11)

He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
Have you guys actually watched the rest of the interview? He says as a kid he didn’t appreciate it because it was too philosophical for him, but when he watched it while working on the 2009 movie screenplay he found he really enjoyed it. Stop jumping to conclusions based on 8 gifs from an interview.
Some men who want to compliment random women on the street are genuinely good guys who just don’t understand why their comments might be unwelcome. Some men who want to compliment random women on the street are creepy predators. Most are somewhere in between, and guess what? I don’t know you, I don’t know your life, and I have no idea if you’re going to leave it at “Hey, you look good in that dress!” or follow it up with “But you’d look better without it! Har har! C’mon, where’re you going? I know you heard me! Fucking cunt, nobody wants your fat ass anyway, bitch.”
When you compliment a random woman who doesn’t know you, no matter how nice you are about it, there’s a good chance she’s going to freak out internally because for all she knows, you could be that latter type. And I get that it’s really unfair that women would just assume that about you. I get that it sucks that sometimes, expressing totally reasonable opinions like “hey you’re hot” will make women terrified of you or furious at you. That’s not fair.
But if you’re going to lay the blame for that somewhere, for fuck’s sake, don’t blame the woman. Blame all the guys who have called her a bitch and a cunt for ignoring their advances. Blame all the guys who may have harassed, abused, or assaulted her in the past. Blame all the people who may never do such a thing themselves, but who were quick to blame her and tell her to just get over it. Blame the fact that if she stops and talks to you and then something bad happens, people will blame her for stopping and talking to you.
Male feminist allies may be few and far between, but they are important to the future of the movement, and feminism needs them.

Am I the only person whose brain autofills “Hitler” instead of “Hispter” in Taylor Swift’s song 22?
“It feels like a perfect night/to dress up like Hit-ler…”
It’s catchy, no?
yet another unrealistic expectation for women
I know y’all are jealous of my new socks. No need to say it.
Bought them at ModCloth, they’re called “Simply Riveting” socks. And if you use that link to buy them, I get $15 credit, so…help a sister out?
