Dear Tumblr (@staff),
Please don't change this place with a plus whatever. We are here because of how it is now. I'll have no where else to go.
Thanks.
P.S. Your cat is cute.

the double standard with Stardust City Rag being the worst rated episode while Nepenthe is the best rated episode
because everyone who hates Stardust City Rag鈥檚 ONLY argument is 鈥渨ell beloved character Icheb dies and Seven kills a bunch of people鈥 but Nepenthe has beloved character Hugh die and Elnor kills a bunch of people.
And they can鈥檛 say 鈥渨ell Nepenthe has the return of beloved characters Riker and Diana and there鈥檚 more to the episode than just Hugh dying and Elnor killing people鈥 when Stardust City Rag has the return of beloved character Seven and has more than just Icheb鈥檚 death and Seven killing people.
I鈥檓 not saying Nepenthe is a bad episode, the exact opposite, I think it鈥檚 a great episode, but I don鈥檛 think Stardust City Rag is the worst episode, I think Stardust City Rag is the best episode, it鈥檚 the episode that鈥檚 the most 鈥渇un鈥. They go to Space Vegas and play characters in a heist and somehow no one recognizes Picard even though he鈥檚 like the second most famous Starfleet captain. That鈥檚 what I love about old Star Trek, those moments where you can poke fun at how dumb a situation is. And Elnor having to stay quiet because he just blurts out 鈥淚t鈥檚 a lie.鈥 when they make plans to heist a man away. Now, we only really get those dumb but enjoyable situations in Lower Decks, and while I love Lower Decks because of that, it ruins Discovery the most because there鈥檚 absolutely NO episodes like that so far, at least Picard tries to have fun and be dumb sometimes, Discovery gets dumb, but not purposefully and intentionally. I鈥檓 pretty sure when they wrote Rascals they were thinking 鈥渢his is dumb, this is a dumb idea and a dumb situation, they鈥檙e gonna love it鈥 or when writing Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang they were thinking 鈥渢his is dumb, they鈥檙e doing a holographic heist for a holoprogram entertainer because they love him that much while in the middle of one of the biggest wars in a long time, it鈥檚 amazing.鈥 and I absolutely have no doubts that they weren鈥檛 taking themselves seriously at all while writing Unexpected. I want more of that.
Just say you hate flawed women characters and go.
Stardust City Rag is the best episode of Picard, thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Reject consumerism as self care.
You can value yourself and decrease stress without spending money. Focus on what you can do within your environment and how you can genuinely better your life.
Sleeping late, spending time with loved ones, walking outside, meditating, dancing - it is not necessary to buy things in order to feel relief.

how can someone watch Voyager and think that Janeway is not the best captain?? Janeway will forever be the best captain ever.
She defeated the Borg Queen and tons of her drones in the process while getting Voyager home. What did Picard do? Get assimilated instantly.
When faced with the horrors of war, she fought to keep the morale of the crew up and always tried to do the morally right thing. What did Archer do? Kidnap and psychologically torture multiple Xindi and then just gave up to where the Token Vulcan has to be emotional for him to get even slightly better.
She got betrayed multiple times and she never went on a revenge plot and also took in a bunch of terrorists into the crew and tried her damn best to work with them and value their insight. What did Sisko do? Threaten to destroy an entire colony because a terrorist spy hurt his ego.
She spent seven years single and just concentrated on her mission. What did Kirk do? Fucked.

Article in Nature helps us understand transgender kids
Tumblr media
Over at twitter @FireceMum presents a new article from the renowned science journal Nature on trangender youth in Belgium. The article provides some very helpful insight into why the number of trans youth seeking health services is going up.
@FierceMum, who presents herself as 鈥渁 fierce advocate of her trans daughter, blogger, writer, PhD researcher, mum & intersectional feminist鈥 writes this in her thread:
Tumblr media
New article on trans youth clinic from Belgium, a swift summary to follow:聽
First of all, it provides a useful reference for the Nuffield and Cass reviews that both seem perplexed as to the rise in children coming to Gender Clinics worldwide.
鈥淎 recent Belgian study found that the average age of self-realization is 12.7 years throughout different generations, but the coming-out age has dropped signi铿乧antly from 33.2 years in the generation born between 1965鈥1970, to 27.7 years in the generation born between 1971鈥1985聽to 17,5 for those born between 1986鈥2000 [45]. This decreased coming-out age explains why an increase in the pediatric clinics can be noted.鈥
Next it looks at the numbers of youth who continue accessing gender services. The paper looks at 177 youth aged 12-18 on first appointment at the service between 2007 and 2016 (average age 15 at first appointment).
It focuses on 172 youth. 29 of these stopped going to the children鈥檚 gender clinic. 7 of these had re-enrolled in adult services by the time the study was conducted. 87% (150/172) continued accessing gender services.
Of the 22 who stopped accessing Belgian gender services, only 2 were interviewed (others were not found or refused to engage). One was living in assigned gender, and did not need gender services. The other was gender fluid, and did not need medical intervention.
TW to follow in this thread. (mention of suicide).
5 out of the 177 adolescents in the Belgian gender clinic (2.8%) are reported to have taken their own lives.
I know the statistics & frequently see & hear the realities of trans kids & teens, but this is still deeply shocking & profoundly upsetting to read. Trans kids & trans youth continue to be failed so badly in so many ways.
Tackling institutional transphobia and societal prejudice won鈥檛 solve all problems, but it is a bloody good place to start.
Providing trans positive de-pathologising affirming healthcare for trans adolescents won鈥檛 solve all problems, but is an important component of wellbeing, strongly correlated with positive outcomes.
Childhood affirmation, embracing and celebrating trans kids to be recognised and validated at all ages won鈥檛 solve all problems, but it helps trans kids grow up secure and with self-esteem.
Providing gender affirmative guidance, counselling, advice and support for parents can help ensure families and homes are safe and nurturing environments for all children.
Schools can do more to ensure they provide safe and affirming spaces for all trans and gender diverse kids, spaces where gender diversity is normalised and embraced, where diversity is visible and validated, where microaggressions and cisnormativity is tackled.
Every trans kid and trans teen who I have had the privilege to get to know is someone I look up to, am proud to know, am impressed by. Trans kids are awesome. And we continue to fail them.
Full thread here.聽
The Nature paper聽鈥淭en years of experience in counseling gender diverse youth in Flanders, Belgium. A clinical overview,鈥 by聽 Gaia Van Cauwenberg, Karlien Dhondt and Joz Motmans is available here.

Star Trek has ruined pretty much all other shows for me. Every other one is like 鈥渓ook how diverse we are, we have a minor character who is gay and that is their one character trait and whose only purpose is to help this bland, kinda creepy, straight, cis, white protagonist awkwardly pursue this other equally bland, creepy, straight, white, cis character鈥 or 鈥渓ook we鈥檙e special because we have a strong woman who hates all other women because they don鈥檛 conform to her ideas of strength but also ends up in the standard damsel in distress situation鈥. Then Star Trek busts in with dynamic storylines and intense philosophical discussions and alternating hilarity and tragedy in each episode. And then they say - let鈥檚 just have complex lgbtq+ characters who aren鈥檛 defined by their tragic backstories (this representation is also important but just because someone is lgbtq+ doesn鈥檛 mean they automatically have a tragic backstory), equal representation of men and woman where women and men support each other and can hold friendships without romantic expectations! And let鈥檚 have Asian-American and Russian and Japanese and African-American and Malaysian and English and French and Indian characters because Earth isn鈥檛 just made up of White Americans like it is in almost every other sci fi movie. Star Trek is beautiful and there is a character for everyone! Star Trek is always said to be 鈥渂reaking boundaries鈥 but really it鈥檚 just showing what TV should be and that鈥檚 why it鈥檚 so hard to find shows that even appear equal to it.
