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.
i made a thing
the principal at my school made an announcement yesterday that the girls need to start covering up and then i found this in the hallway
Really? This person is really going to pretend that men think ENTIRELY different from women. Shows their age/ignorance. Why do women(and girls) ignore men over and over again when they explain to them that they are VISUAL creatures. It takes effort to control sexual desires as a man. Most women don’t think of most of the men they meet everyday in a sexual way. Unlike men who do. They say they do. So having rules regarding attire that isn’t overly revealing isn’t illogical or overbearing. It makes sense. But so many young people are so idealistic and lack any nuance into their philosophy of life(the same philosophy on life that will inevitably change with time and experience).
“It takes effort to control sexual desires as a man.” And? Explain to me why I should alter how I choose to dress because you don’t want to put forth that effort? You don’t get to control my body just because you don’t want to control yours.
It takes effort to control my urge to punch sexist shitheads but I’m still responsible for my own behavior.

Benchthis Chunkybap. Well.
They missed “Chupacabra” which is my favorite.
men at large feel like they are being robbed of something when an attractive woman with a 90% chance of developing breast cancer gets a double mastectomy
what better illustration of the male sense of sexual entitlement do you need
Ok so… to my mind any of these:
- Cumbergirls (So belittling)
- Cumberbunnies (playboy!)
- Cumberladies (I am not)
- Cumberbabes (I need to be sexy to be in this fandom?)
Are all actively less empowering than…
The problem I have with “bitch” is women also use it against other women, it DOES mean “a mean, nasty person” to the vast majority of people. In the right context, I have no problem with the word - I subscribed to Bitch magazine for years! And I loved the Weekend Update where Tina Fey and Amy Poehler talked about it. But that was more like “if people call a female public figure a bitch, she’s probably doing something right” not “let’s all go around calling ourselves bitches as if it’s a synonym for ‘woman.’” Lots of misogynist men do that already. And it doesn’t make sense to claim we’re bitches in the sense that Hillary Clinton is; we’re just fangirling an actor, there’s nothing about that that evokes the version of “bitch” that means “woman who refuses to be submissive.” It’s not even just neutral, it sounds like an abbreviation of “Cumberbatch’s bitches.” Like the fact that a group of fans happens to be female means we’re his harem or something. I do not want to be associated that.
And on top of that, I think the more important problem is it makes Benedict uncomfortable; he doesn’t want to have to say a sexist slur, especially not to refer to his fans. And interviewers keep bringing it up because they know it makes him uncomfortable and they want a cheap laugh at his expense. That’s really annoying. We can’t stop interviewers from being assholes but we can take away this opportunity for a cheap shot at him.
What’s wrong with “Cumbercollective”? It’s gender-neutral and it doesn’t have any bad connotations. I’ve heard him say it twice iirc, so it sounds like that’s what he’d prefer. Why shouldn’t he have some say in what his fans are called? It does reflect on him (it shouldn’t, but the way talk show hosts giggle about it, they clearly think it does). So I’m going to use “Cumbercollective” from now on.
The most nerve wracking thing in MC
UM EXCUSE ME I THINK YOU MEAN THIS
WHY WOULD YOU BRING A DIAMOND SHOVEL AND TWO DIAMOND PICKS TO THE NETHER?
there are 9 calories in a tablespoon of sperm
but only 0 calories in Diet Sperm™
Or try new Sperm 1.0, with all the taste of regular Sperm and only one calorie! It’s not for women!
Where is the Ninja Turtle one with gumball eyes?? That’s the one I always got.
i hope benny realizes that fans are going to bombard him with owls now
i’ve actually considered sculpting a quick derpy-lookin owl out of sculpey and putting it in the puppet box just for fun.
If you read the article, they actually belong to his mum. He has some in his old room at his parents’ house but we don’t know whether he actually likes them or they’re just kind of there. And they’re not stuffed as in plush toy owls, they’re taxidermied dead owls. Maybe he doesn’t need any more.
