On Do You Have Impostor Syndrome?

Right out of college I wouldn't have said that I had impostor syndrome. I was confident in my opinions and thought I was smart, really smart. But after having numerous jobs where my opinions and contributions weren't valued, I've developed it. There is a lot of talk about entitled millennials, and the face of that is always a young women. I look around my office, and I only see a few women over 30. There is only one women over 40 (and I know she has to work harder than anyone else there.) Where do the women go?

On Don't Be Afraid to Talk About Abortion

YES! I'm really tired that sometimes even reproductive rights advocates take this moralizing tone. I want to live in a world where abortion has no stigma. Where it is treated like every other minor health procedure. (Yes, for women who have to terminate a wanted pregnancy, it's heartbreaking.) But for many more women it is a relief!

On How Many Types of Millennials Are There?

Reasons why baby boomers are the worst: they ruined the economy. They ruined the environment. And they ruined sex. (Thanks for the AIDS, guys.) They'll probably find some way to ruin potatoes.

On Nickelodeon's Diversity "Problem" Is That It Likes Diversity

@Lisa Frank Well Chapel would have to be promoted to Ranking Science Officer because Spock AND Mccoy have both been captured. Ensign Tendaji (Lupita Nyong'o) takes over medical bay while Lt. Chapel works on the antidote. Also Lucy Liu is the leader of the Klingon rebel faction.

On Nickelodeon's Diversity "Problem" Is That It Likes Diversity

@Lisa Frank I just assumed that Sulu would have the conn (since he usually has the conn when Kirk isn't on the bridge?) and therefore be acting Captain in the event that Kirk was incapacitated? Also since Spock and McCoy are captured, Nurse Chapel is promoted to Senior Science Officer. When the Enterprise reaches the distressed ship, they discover that the Klingons have used a neurological weapon to attack the crew of the federation ship and Lt. Chapel isolates the neurological toxin and synthesizes the antidote. Lt. Chapel is played by Kerry Washington.

NEVER APOLOLIGZE FOR GEEKING OUT ABOUT STAR TREK IN MY PRESENCE.
