Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci: Open gay character ‘not necessary’

somejane:

lgbtqblogs:

A gay character that is both open and is integral to the plot is ‘not necessary’ in Star Trek 3, according to the director.

Roberto Orci has spoken about the follow-up to the adventures of the USS Enterprise, last seen in Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013).

But even though the film will take place over 200 years in the future, Orci said he has doubts we will ever see a character having a same-sex relationship.

‘It can be part of a character and not be the whole shebang,’ he said on the Humans From Earth podcast.

‘It doesn’t have to be like South Park, like “what have we learned today”.

‘It can be so normalized that it just exists. I agree it can’t be shoe-horned in. And it is not necessary for it to be the whole point of the thing.

‘It is an ensemble and there is lots of people to represent so no one point of view should hog it.’

Translation: “Depicting same-sex relationships will make Star Trek 3 ALL ABOUT SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIPS, so we won’t depict them at all. However, we will still make sure a male lead surprises one of their female peers in their lingerie at least twice.”

Translation: “We can’t make a gay character objectively impactful because then they’d just be gaying it up all over the place. If it makes you feel better you can just pretend it’s there where you can’t see it.”

Orci you fucking schmuck.

Yes I support gay rights.

Yes I would care if you died.

No I’m not going to reblog that post.

And i’m especially not going to reblog seven pages worth of colorful gifs of people patting their back because they’re not homophobic.

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.

Watching NCIS Los Angeles

Me: They just walked in, they didn't even have their guns!

Dad: Her nipples were alert and he had a slight erection, does that count?

Let me be blunt: Stock photography needs to die. In his 1946 essay “Politics and the English Language,” George Orwell argued that clichéd language produces clichéd thinking. Using a stale image, as he’d put it, “makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.” Stock photography imprisons us in the same cognitive jail. Its intentionally bland images are designed to be usable in many vaguely defined situations. This produces wretched photography for the same reason Hallmark cards produce wretched poetry. We live in a visual world, communicating and thinking in pictures. When we use stock photos, we think in clichés.

[…]

The true cure for stock photography is inside your camera phone.

Clive Thompson's spot-on, important Wired article on ending the tyranny of stock photos, which could be said to hold for visual culture that aphorisms do for intellectual culture.

Thompson is the author of the excellent Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds for the Better.
