I'm pretty sure "making sure people know I'm a woman" is really really low on the specs for what I want in my armor.
 
Sexist idiots. 
Screenshots have surfaced of a Stars Wars community manager taking a commenter to task over their ideas about "female armor."

I prefer Star Trek over Star Wars but the older stuff where they didn't try to science as much.

I will always care about interesting characters over anything else. Followed by a good plot, then interesting setting, and lastly is believable tech. In hard sci-fi books that do use real science I tend to gloss over those parts anyway. I'm not an engineer or physicist so when you get into the nitty gritty of the numbers it's over my head anyway. I'm in this annoying place that when you are wrong I know it but when you are right I can't really appreciate it as much as others. Which is why I like when you don't bother at all.

Consistency is much more important than realism. I need consistency in my rules of magic and fantasy too. The evil wizard shouldn't have different rules for their magic than the heroes do.

You got them all, but don't take it for granite! Seriously, who doesn't know these?

I was watching a TV show the other day (Dark Matter) and they had a scene where someone was standing in the airlock, waiting to go outside of the ship. While standing in the air lock they began the depressurization process and the guy announced that he was turning on the magnetic boots and the camera panned down to show the boots suddenly sticking to the floor. It's a scene we've seen a million times in a space based show... but suddenly I was sitting there wondering why? Gravity isn't a specific regional phenomenon. Gravity is pulling him toward the floor of the air lock. It's pulling him toward the floor of the rooms below the outside of the ship he's walking on. Gravity isn't stopped by metal walls, why isn't their gravity on the outside of the ship holding him to the hull, just like it would the floor on the level below? Why does gravity stop as soon as you step out of an airlock?

Woah man... woah

Given that the show takes place on like five sets, I'd not let this one be the one that blows up sci-fi for you

+Jolly Jay meh. I'm not that much of a fanboy that I like collector's editions with their cheap statutes and fabric maps. I also don't particularly want to wear something so bulky on my arm. I'd much rather make a nicer version in leather.

If it's just them, they immediately assume it's a system-wide issue.  If it's a system-wide issue, they immediately assume it's just them.

I love spending two hours trying to fix a strange problem and getting supper frustrated because it's just not working and I have a ton of other work that I'm falling behind on... just to remember finally that there's a setting on the server-side that needs to be unchecked to resolve the problem...

+Geoff Taylor​ and being that insistent on joining a grammar group, one of many, doesn't fill me with warm fuzzies either. Luckily our team of moderators do pretty good keeping the rabble out.

Can my black followers answer a question for me?

Why do black people freak the hell out at magicians? They are always screaming and running away. Attached is an example video but I see it all the time (because I like watching street magic). Is this just an American thing?

In that case!
I'm glad I don't live in Arizona where at least one person is mad because I handed their ass to them for being an asshole to helpless living beings.
Over in Virginia, people don't get pissy when we post public and someone other than a select group participates.
Whew!
