But unfortunately, back here on earth the most oppressed class in Western society – white males – is trumpeting their dismay… nay! anguish! over the lack of white dudery on the upcoming CBS Star Trek Discovery series.

Looks star trekkie enough for me. But of for others…

One opines that, for fans of a relentlessly optimistic and progressive sci-fi show, there seems to be a bit of a disconnect between what Trek is about, and the attitudes of people who watch and inhabit the Trek fandom believe.

I actually kind of relish the amount of whinging going on here, as these oppressed men bloviate on (usually dipping into sexism and racism) about how they cannot relate to the cast because they don’t see themselves portrayed.

Welcome to the default setting of what one half of the world’s population experiences almost every day of their lives.
