Leave me a character, couple or just general fandom and I will make a 5-ish song mix based on it!

Oh my god I forgot how wonderfully exhausting Star Trek fandom is when it’s active! Sorry Glee Fandom, but you’re on the backburner a bit for now.
Trekkies, I’m home…!

Talkin’ ‘Bout Star Trek: Into Darkness:
The abysmal representation and treatment of female characters in the AbramsVerse:

After all those father/son pictures, I guess it’s only fair to draw Raven with her boy at least once, right? (She’s a better parent than Azazel anyways.)

Even though I couldn’t get them done in time for the first viewing of Star Trek: Into Darkness, they’re ready for subsequent viewings! I love them so much! And I think Tina did a fantastic job with just two quick pics of what I wanted! Added the medical symbol inside the sciences symbol so it was more obvious who my OTP is.

Excuse me, Liam: interstellargeek: righteouspussypower: ramblingraphael:...
so I can’t go like six hours without seeing someone on tumblr complaining about how Bendydicked Cucumberpatch is playing Khan in the new Star Trek film, the usual “bluh whitewashing” argument going on and here I am just thinking wow people are WAY too hooked up on race and maybe they picked an actor for his waxing popularity and acting ability
it’s funny bc it’s usually white people sayin people are ~focusing too much on race
because if it doesn’t affect white people, it’s totally ~not important~
(sorry my phone fucked up have to repost this)
People who say ‘theyre too hooked up on race!’ Don’t understand that well yeah we kind of have to be cause it would be nice for a man of colour to be played as a man of colouur for once. It doesn’t affect you, that’s why you don’t care. Stop silencing criticism bc it just doesn’t affect you. Whitewashing is real and its a huge problem. The fact that people are too hooked on race is bc there is such a lack of representation for desis in hollywood that we’re only going to be put as the villains in movies (amrish puri in that horrible indiana jones movie for example).
If you want to talk about popularity and acting ability bollywood is literally the biggest industry in the world and there are hundreds of indian actors that could have played that role. Shahrukh khan is the most famous actor in the world. Want to talk about popularity? EVERYONE would flock to the movies to see the King Khan in any movie.
Like I’m soooooo sorry you’re being inconvinienced by people being upset about whitewashing but when there is a change in how desi men are portrayed in hollywood then yeah we won’t shut up
I like how you immediately jumped to the conclusion that I’m white purely because I have a dissenting opinion
as for bollywood being bigger, last I checked hollywood had a revenue over ten times bollywood’s
I don’t see anyone complaining about the lack of white people in bollywood films though, so I suggest you reconsider your motives
i didn’t call you white lol i just said you didn’t care
and you do realize that revenue does not count for the amount of people watching bollywood movies in terms of viewership, bollywood has more people watching, more movies, and a bigger fanbase. in terms of benedict cumberbatch vs. shahrukh khan, the revenue would have been huge if he was in it. or amitabh bachchan.
BAHAHAHAH you don’t really get how bollywood works do you? there are white people in their films when the roles call for white people to be there. it actually represents white people when there needs to be a white person in the role! who knew? examples: amy jackson, kalki koechlin. examples of movies: salaam-e-ishq, lagaan, etc. when the script calls for a white person, they get a white person. also america is a diverse country, much more than india, so would it kill for more men of colour in a movie that calls for a man of colour?
I’m going to jump in here, and say that the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan was really fucked up. And I want you to read and understand this very, very well, okay?
1: The original actor was not white. He was a Mexican man, and the difference between him and Benedict Cumberbatch’s race is very, very apparent. Khan, in the original casting, was meant to look of mixed race heritage. Khan was also part of a “super soldier” project, part of a “eugenics” program. Eugenics is pretty much synonymous with “white supremacy” and “white nationalism.
Khan being the perfection of humanity, and being non-white, is a slap in the face of white nationalism. It’s Gene Roddenberry pointing at racists and laughing at them, that they’re so stupid they think only white people can be superior.
You know how Kirk defeated Khan? By tricking him. But taking Khan out of his own element. Because he couldn’t beat the superior intellect. By having Khan be white in the new films, it sort of enhances the idea of white supremacy that went with the eugenics program in the real world. Star Trek mocked white nationalism in the 1960’s, and this casting of a white guy as Khan does not hold the same symbolism.
2: Let me tackle this as a Trekkie. You want to look at what I wrote up there and say I’m some whiney “social justice warrior” or something, then let me come at you as someone that fucking loves Star Trek. The Original Series is some of my favorite television. “Trouble with Tribbles”. “Space Seed” (Khan’s episode). Don’t get me started on the glory of “The City on the Edge of Forever.” Gods that episode was amazing. Wrath of Khan in the 80’s was an awesome film too.
So why, as a Trekkie, do I hate this casting? Because it *changes Khan’s race.* The new Trek films aren’t a reboot. Star Trek (2009) is also called Star Trek XII: The New Beginning. You notice how the original Spock from the Original Series is in the new films? That’s because his universe STILL EXISTS.
That literally means that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Khan and Ricardo Montalban’s Khan’s could meet. Yes, Ricardo Montalban is dead, sadly. However, both universes coexist in the same universe.
That means, and stay with me here, that Star Trek: Enterprise still happened. While everything else is different, since Star Trek: Enterprise is a prequel, it still occurred. So keep in mind, that the new Star Trek films are not a reboot or a prequel, they’re a continuation of the original Star Trek involving time travel and the creation of an entirely separate reality.
So as a Trekkie, it pisses me off that they changed his race because it fucks with the canon. And one thing you don’t do to a Trekkie?
Fuck with canon, unless your name be Gene Roddenberry.
So there you go, two VALID reasons from two different points of view as to why it sucks and it’s stupid that they cast a white guy to play that character.
You don’t like the SJ one because you think “race isn’t a big deal,” then argue with the Trekkie one, because I’ll bring hellfire down on you.
