This is actually a few days old but I wanted to give you guys a couple days free of Trek Facebook trolls. So here was another fairly innocuous Startrek.com Facebook post. ANNND another horrible response from some. This was the fifth from top comment:
This guy called her a slut (and a bitch) and then later tried to use the Wikipedia definition of “slut” to defend himself.
And yay, rape jokes!
Thankfully the vast majority of comments on this post just wished her a Happy Birthday or commented kindly on other movies/shows people had liked her in. There’s hope for this page because it’s already attracted a ton of plain, decent fans – it just takes willingness from the top to shut down the worst commenters for the sake of everyone else, including those of us who won’t even comment there because of the dynamic.
