Anonymous said: I just gonna regard the blog as a troll. She refuses to see why Uhotty in the sense of STV as problematic and even than it's still about Scotty's feelings over everything. Even though he left her after everything. If he loved her so much wouldnt he drop everything and comfort her? No a spaceship comes before her and apparenty to that blog that's just shows true love.
If that is a troll, then we must have a ton of trolls in this fandom LOL
I think it’s just a person with their own strong opinions and who is forceful (=comes across as wanting to convert people to their opinion) with them because, clearly, they’re invested in this all just like the rest of us, just from an opposite side. Sure, from their posts there seems to be a deliberate intent of provoking us into an emotional response and bait arguments (not just in that post, but also in their own posts about why S/U is bad, posted in all the general tags. See the one I linked)
that said, yeah, I swear but before 2009 I never read so many people talking about that ship (in fact, I did remember that at first they were sideshipping her with McCoy!!! Good times!) and I guess it’s just a coincidence that every damn time I see it getting mentioned the person is always a spirk fan. Everything I see now is a very disingenuous argument that is even more useless and baseless than the so called spirk vs spuhura shipper wars. tbh
In either case, it’s yet again another pretext to have arguments with the Spock/Uhura fans.
ps: also can we talk about how no one seems to care about Kirk/Uhura just because it’s Kirk, and yet that is like the most logical alternative to Spock/Uhura if you hate the latter so much? You have subtext served on a plate xD (and if you hate Spock that much but love Kirk and Uhura, here! problem fixed!) Like, they ship her with that other dude for so much much less (especially in the reboot where, well, they don’t interact) imagine if Uhura had with any other dude but Kirk or Spock, the kind of interactions that she has with Kirk and Spock in both the reboot and tos.
IDK, I guess I have to feel glad that people don’t wank about Kirk/Uhura at least because the fact that she’s friends with Kirk and not another character makes it so that people understand that it’s just friendship and she wouldn’t cheat on her boyfriend. I’m not sure, though, I can fully appreciate that their friendship might be understood (but still underrated) only because of ulterior motives.
yeah. kirk and uhura did have the first interracial kiss that was meant for spock/uhura becore will shatner’s ego steeped in and also who can forget kirk holding her on her shoulders and telling her she was a great officer. funny this girls like to read subtext but they go blind when its with uhura. my favorite spock and uhura moments from tos is not even from charlie x is when spock told her SHE WALKED IN BEAUTY LIKE THE NIGHT and Mccoy was like that is not Spock but hell yeah it was.
so yes, kirk/uhura will be a better alternative but Spock/uhura will always be my number one. nothing matches their moments from trek 2009.
The Plato’s Stepchildren kiss was originally written between Kirk and Uhura. William Shatner was defending the original scene and Nichelle Nichols. Here’s what happened:
The following is Nichelle Nichols’ quote from William Shatner’s Star Trek Memories:
"[The network suits were] telling me that the kiss would make the show impossible to air…I mean, they even went so far as to suggest changing the scene so that Kirk gets paired off with Nurse Chapel and Spock ends up with me. Somehow, I guess, they found it more acceptable for a Vulcan to kiss me, for this alien to kiss this black woman, than for two humans with different coloring to do the same thing." (pages 284-285).
William Shatner objected to the alterations proposed because he thought it was ridiculous that the original scene was being changed because of the network executives. Just wanted to clarify that point.
I’m going to be rude and butt my head where it hasn’t been, sorry in advance.
I feel like a lot of people are missing the point that the subtext surrounding Spock and his parents is that of interracial marriage and biracial people. Spock’s parents, one like the assumed viewer (human, read white) and the other different and seemingly unrelatable to us (alien, read as any racial minority you want- I personally see black), are in love and they get married and they have a kid and they name him Spock. That makes Spock biracial, not white.
My issue with spuhura is that they literally stuck one person of color with another person of color. People are forgetting that and I realise this isn’t the 60s, but in many ways the long civil rights movement isn’t over. Look at St. Louis County or the threats Obama got when he was elected or any of millions of other racial injustices happening today.
Yes, there are issues with uhotty, yes there is racism in star trek, yes there is sexism in star trek, but that doesn’t change what we’ve been given.
(For the sake of transparency, I am a white, middle class, cisgendered, woman, feminist, social justice warrior, spirk shipper. Give me your worst.)
your issue with spuhura is that they put one person of colour with another person of colour?
woooow….thats a new one. its actually kind of a stupid logic. two people of different races and colour dating is not wrong. in fact the fact that they are of different races is what could attract them together because they may be able to relates to one another more as both may experience racism as some point which means they would be able to understand each other feelings..
spock has experience bigotry so has uhura..at least tos uhura. lincoln did call her a negress. so both of them have common things they share together and can build a reltionship on either as friends or as romantic partners. the facts that you are whining about two people of color /races character dating prove that many of you kirk/spock fans are more desperate and deluded than ever because you are willing to do and say anything even if it is idiotic to the dumbest person to bash uhura for dating spock.
lol there is a reason why you girls on not on real trek forums. tumblr is the only place where you can say bullshit and it will fly.if you make this type of statement on trek bbs or star trek online the most active trek forum you would have been banned for trolling and making racist statments.
spock/uhura been people of colour makes them have more in common than any other pairing.
the fact that you fail to notice this common knowledge proves that your stupidity and ignorance is beyond belief. lol…the kirk/spock fan girls never seizes to amaze with their little intelligence they display to the public. its quite embarrassing to hear the things you girls so…..very embarrassing.
