Where No Women Have Gone Before

Issues of race and gender in sci-fi/comic fandom and science fact. Occasional squees, and intermittent swears. Primary Fandoms are Star Trek, the MCU, and Doctor Who.

A racist society will give you a racist science.

Remember that time when they made up a disease for black ppl when we didnt wanna be stuck as slaves?

Remember when they operated on black women with no anesthesia to get modern gynecological surgical procedures?

Remember when they sterilized poor woc without consent to keep us from ‘creating more undesirables’?

Remember when the government allowed Black men to go untreated with Syphilis even after a cure was discovered?

Remember when minority heavy areas in cities were sprayed with radioactive material to ‘test’ how America could handle a nuclear fallout?

Oh, you dont? Because I do…

Go look it up. Every single one was done by a white supremacist nation called America.

FOR SCIENCE!

Don’t forget that in 1975 about 35% of Puerto Rican Women were sterilized without their consent by the US government

I think if I had given Kirk and the others what I suspect 23rd century values and morals may actually be, they would have either angered or scared the pants off the average viewer.
