REBLOG IF YOU ARE FEMALE AND A FAN OF STAR TREK OR STAR GATE(NEW OR OLD)

I am trying to show my parents that these shows can be enjoyed by girls as well as boys!

Although it’s actually STARGATE. (One word.)

My mum introduced me to Star Trek TOS in the 80s. She was a Spock fangirl, I liked Dr. McCoy. So I’m actually a second-generation female fan of all things Star-related (Trek, Wars, ‘Gate). Regards to your parents from my mum. :)

Star Wars was always there, ever since I played with my cousin’s action figures (or rather was not allowed to play with them, 8 year olds are mean) when I was 3. It’s part of my childhood just like Biene Maja, Luis de Funès movies, and Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill movies. But I will never be a Star Wars fangirl. Probably.

I like Star Wars. Love the old movies, but if I one day have to chose a Team, SW or Star Trek, it will always be ST.
Star Trek TNG was the first scifi I chose myself, no prompting from anyone but little old me.

Tons of other shows followed like Tripods, SeaQuest, Stargate SG1&SGA, DS9, VOY, TOS, etc., and the list definitely will forever have a “to be continued” as the last one listed.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

Women have been advocates of, and responsible for, huge advancements of the science since the beginning of time. You just rarely hear about it due to the fact that clever women didn’t fit into the narrative.
Everything from what we breath, to the chemical makeup of stars, was discovered by women in a time when they were barely allowed to read, if even that.
The world’s first archaeologist? A woman.
So GTFO boys. We’re busy being clever here.

wow and she was dead ass

Just so you guys know this is a thing started on 4chan where they would take this and just add really offensive horrible things to it (you can even see the deleted characters above the “Like” button) and for some reason this edit, as well as an edit where “she” was condoning rape, became popular. Normally I wouldn’t care but I’m pretty sure she’s like 14 and is getting bullied terribly
I creeped her facebook and here’s her newer posts on the subject:

Just so you all know!

SIGNAL BOOST

Boost this to the moon. Clear this woman’s name.
