misscam: (No dissent!)
Ugh, ever had one of those 'can't hold down anything, not even water' kind of sicks? I am. Must've eaten something that very much didn't agree with me. Just hope I don't get dehydrated or something silly while waiting for it to settle down. Ugh.

On the topic of ugh: Republican Ohio state legislator John Adams of Sidney, has submitted a bill that would require a woman to obtain the permission of the man who impregnated her before she could receive abortion services.

Let me get this straight. I generally think it's a good idea that in case of a pregnancy, the two parties involved talk to each other. Ideally, it should be a joint decision. However, there are situations where that might not possible. Ultimately, a woman's will trumps the father's. I'm sorry, but it does. Because it's her body. Forcing her to carry a fetus to term against her will is just... I have no words. Don't even get me started on the bit about rape in there. I don't have the energy for that particular rage today.

I see Russell T. Davis was interviewed about reactions to Torchwood's Children of Earth. Comments get into it, as one might expect.

Also, RTD ships Winchester brothers, it seems.

Meanwhile, the new Star Trek movie led to a number of things and now a group would like the next one to include Kirk/Spock - in the name of equality.

However, not all get behind this idea and don't like that one ship is focused on and set up as the One That Would Represent Equality. It would also mean breaking up Spock and Uhura, and that doesn't go down well with everyone.

I must admit, I kinda found this movement (as they call themselves) tacky. It comes across way more 'we find this pairing hot, please stick it in the movie!' than 'hey, how about some representation of same sex couples that isn't made of fail?' The latter, I'm totally behind. The first is way more fannish entitlement. And shrouding that in a call for equality? I find that tacky, I do. (Plus, starting it with a version of 'I know this isn't really allowed, but I am going to post anyway'? Does not endear me.)

Also being talked about here and here.

Cam and Saz discuss Spock and Uhura, shallow, mushed ship names, RTD's brain and the Internet being for porn )
