Re: How is Janeway sexy?

Interesting article. I get the feeling that the author has never watched Star Trek, though.

"When it comes to strong female characters, other genre works of note include "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Farscape," "Firefly" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

No disrespect to Beverly Crusher and Deanna Troi, but it seems to me that Voyager should have been the top Trek pick to use as an example here. Did y'all know the captain on Voyager was a woman?

I'm only nitpicking in a friendly way, though. The topic of women in scifi is one that has been on my mind a lot lately, and it's always good to see an article addressing it.

(ETA: Oh, and J'Rulz, if you are from OK, you can even label yourself a Southerner without too many people arguing with you. It worked for Garth Brooks. *passes J'Rulz a glass of sweet tea*)
