What if TOS had 900% more central female characters?
(Since I don’t want to stretch your dashboards any more than I have already, I’ve written some thoughts about the characters and the process that went into making the graphics under the cut.)
How awesome would this have been? I love how this makes us see that having the male-dominated crew we got in TOS wasn’t the only possibility. Often in media making we hear some creators feel they need a reason why a character should be a woman, a person of colour, LGBT, etc. This kind of graphic says the question should be: “Why not?”
Happy International Women’s Day! On March 8th we celebrate, appreciate and respect all women, as well as women’s economic, social, scientific and political achievements. I celebrate womanhood every day myself, but a day especially for us is nice too!

Given how people generally seemed to like my previous female armor post (save for one comment that argued that criticizing the depiction of warrior women wearing these and stating that in real life warrior women wouldn’t wear anything like that and that these are highly sexualized is slut-shaming of fictional characters), I’m happy to present part two. Originally it was going to be about torso armor, but several people asked for butts. Now, I hadn’t given thought to butts as much, because unlike boobs, that are depicted as existing almost separately from the entire body, butts are more often incorporated into the rest of the outfit.
Last night my son and I worked a booth at the science fair. We were given a pile of cardboard rolls and some boxes, no instructions. Just the exhibit title: “Tumbling Towers.”
Here’s what we came up with. Kids could build a structure that had to withstand the following natural disasters:
1. Tornado (my son waving a cardboard fan to create wind)
2. Earthquake (All the kids and myself rattling the desk)
3. Sharknado (miscellanous violence and shouting)
4. Unkind Thoughts (scowling at the building and making menacing gestures)
My daughter ran a soundboard with effects from “The Price is Right” to go with the results. I found out later we were supposed to use the stuff to play a big version of “Jenga.” Our booth was pretty popular, though.
