Dowager Countess of Fandom and Stick Figures: I just had the sweetest, tiniest women come into the store. They were...

flatbear:

I just had the sweetest, tiniest women come into the store. They were both easily in their eighties, hair done up in curls, matching outfits, an entire barrel of perfume each. I thought, okay, they think the old toy store is still in this building…

AND THEN THEY SCHOOLED ME. I did not know…

“Uhura” comes from the Swahili word UHURU meaning “freedom”. Uhura was pretty much the first ever black main character on American television who was not a maid or a domestic servant in 1966. TV network NBC refused to let Nichelle Nichols be a regular, claiming Deep South affiliates would be angered, so Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry hired her as a “day worker,” but still included her in almost every episode. She actually made more money than any of the other actors through this workaround, and it was kept secret from the other actors, but it was still a humiliating second-class status. The network people made life hard for Nichols, constantly trying to pare down her screen time, purposefully dropping racist comments in her presence and even withholding her fan mail from her. This deplorable state of affairs led Nichols to make the decision to quit after the 1st season, but then she happened to meet the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. who pleaded with her to stick with the show because as a Black woman she was portraying the first non-stereotypical role on television. 

RE-BLOGGING AGAIN BECAUSE TODAY IS THE 46TH ANNIVERSARY OF STAR TREK AND UHURA IS A BABE AND NICHELLE NICHOLS IS AWESOME!

- after Star Trek was cancelled, she volunteered for a special project with NASA to recruit minority and female personnel for the space agency

- those recruited include: Dr. Sally Ride (the first American female astronaut), United States Air Force Colonel Guion Bluford (the first African-American astronaut), Dr. Judith Resnik and Dr. Ronald McNair (who both flew successful missions during the Space Shuttle program before their deaths in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster), Charles Bolden (current NASA administrator), and Lori Garver (current Deputy Administrator).


- she flew aboard NASA’s C-141 Astronomy Observatory, which analyzed the atmospheres of Mars and Saturn on an eight-hour, high-altitude mission

wait, wait, wait. so Stiles ISN’T the main character?

daidia:

Tumblr had me thinking that Teen Wolf was all about Stiles and Derek and la la sexual tension and oh yeah werewolves sometimes.

and OH MY GOD IS THAT JOHNNY CAGE AS STILES’ DAD?!

LMFAO ARE YOU WATCHING IT?? AMAZING.

Seriously tho, Stiles and Derek are HELLA gay.

you remember that infamous Marvel/Disney crossover meme going on some months ago? well, because of Rebecca and Will I did, and I made this - obviously partially traced and quite embarrassing - thing… quite just for the sake of Clint in a dress.
