Submission from Stephanie
I saw this ridiculous post and I figured you might be interested
I am very interested! Not in the least because this very blog was apparently credited for some of the images (which I in turn got from Trekcore.com, so I’m not exactly the right person to credit, but they didn’t ask me where I’d gotten them from!).
I’m really quite baffled as to the purpose of this article? ‘Bizarre facts’ - what does that mean exactly? What stance are the authors taking on the topic, are they saying basing an entire character around her cleavage was sexist or ridiculous? I honestly don’t think they have any stance at all, other than sharing these ‘tidbits’ of information. They neither celebrate nor condemn the decisions made by the producers, thus I don’t really understand the purpose at all.
Then again, they did include over a dozen pictures of Troi, including no less than nine in a row, so perhaps I’m overthinking things here and it’s simply a ‘yay boobs!’ “article” - in which case I’m rather offended that they even credited me for the images, because that is the exact opposite of what this blog is for.
It does really seem like a “yay boobs!” article. Wait,I don’t even think it should be called an article,it’s just some flimsy excuse to post pictures of Deanna’s cleavage accompanied by general knowledge for TNG fans. The piece even ends with the writer asking readers this:
What did you learn about Deanna Troi’s cleavage?
Well thanks to you I learned that boobs are more important than a someone’s occupation,personality and characterization,you frikkin twats
Yeah, I don’t really think it deserves to be called an article either (hence me referring to it as an “article”). Having just completed a semester of editing I couldn’t help but cringe at how poorly written it was too.
The comments section really does confirm that it’s just a flimsy excuse to share some pictures of Deanna’s cleavage.
But I think the most ironic part is that they must have used the pictures I shared in my article talking about Deanna’s costumes - which resoundly condemns the unitards she was forced to wear for six seasons!
