Feminists Love Sci-Fi
After getting all excited about it, I managed to miss the First Feminist Sci-Fi Carnival at Written World.
Pretty, Fizzy Paradise, host of the next carnival, Where No Woman Has Gone Before discusses the women of Star Trek: The Next Generation and manages to defend the dreaded Pulaski. I'm not convinced, but I am intrigued. :)
I liked Crusher and Troi. Especially Crusher. There's no doubt that Data and Worf got the big story play, but I didn't find them mindless. The "girl talk" scenes of them doing stretches were dumb, but ... I guess that, as things go, I was pretty relieved by the relatively low level of sexism. Pathetic really to be defending TNG because it was less sexist, but I tend to do that.
