      Fucking mirrors everywhere. Circular tables around the mirrors with decapitated heads for as far as the eye could see, all with horrific hairstyles and blank, expressionless faces.

      This is the best description of cosmetology school that’s ever been written! 😂

          Yep! Kind of brought me back to some moments in Return to Oz. If you’ve never watched that, you should do yourself the service of being terrified by a “kids” film.

      Omg, that’s absolutely hilarious, but at least you got a great story out of it! I bet you’re not the first. I could easily see someone signing up for it by accident in college too.

      Why does Star Trek seem to attract a lot of non-stereotypical gay boys? Reminds me a lot of a college friend of mine who was a chubby gay nerd who loved Star Trek. He used to write humorous Trek gay erotic fan fiction in the early 2000’s.

        It attracts all sorts of people who would love to live in the world of Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry’s vision of Star Trek was to show a future in which we had moved so far beyond our social divisions that they didn’t really matter anymore.

        Original series: showed a crew of various ethnicities and origins serving together like it’s no big deal.

        TNG: built on that in various ways - with a blind chief engineer, some men in traditionally feminine uniforms, multiple episodes in which they encounter societies with different views on gender roles, and many more.

        One of my favorite small examples was their response to questions about Captain Picard being bald, when feasibly baldness would have been cured by then: “in the future, nobody would care”
