I am a geek in all senses. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin, Black Books, IT crowd,White Collar BTVS/ATS, Criminal Minds, Supernatural, anime, LOTR, Star trek, avengers, batman you name it. I use to have a lot of time on my hands, but ever since I ran off to the east coast, My life has been filled to the brim. With Charcoal. And Gouache. Ahh RISD, where sleep goes to die. I am going into Illustration, and hope to some day either illustrate comics or go into Visual affects. Besides my obsession with british tv- shows and cartoons/comic books, I am also a massive movie buff. My favorite film is Hunchback of Notre Dame and my favorite comic book is V for Vendetta.
I am a lover of the absurd.

“We just figured that would be a great reference, and we loved that Kirk didn’t remember her,” says Orci. “It’s an in-joke that also speaks volumes about his character when it comes to women. That’s why we used it.”
So will Nurse Chapel ever actually make a flesh-and-blood appearance on the Enterprise? Orci just laughs. “That’s certainly possible!

All I have to say about this is:
#the misogyny is so fucking palpable im going 2 throw up #you had the opportinity to introduce another female character #(having more than 2 is too much for you maybe???????) #but nooo #you had to be gross and write her off as just another conquest in kirk’s book #HILARIOUS AM I RIGHT!!!! #women are dispensable!!!!! #and not only the fucking blatant misogyny you also seem to not understand kirk’s character #like apparently for these dudes sleeping around = being a sleazy douchebag #which???? no?????????#people who have a lot of sex maybe do b/c…they enjoy sex??????? #wow revolutionary i know #anyway god im just so angry about this
i feel like the most appropriate response to this quote is an apathetic scream of frustration
