Re: Is Rod Roddenberry kind of a douche?

ok, overshadowed + laziness = rod

but still don't think calling him a douche is warranted
He reached douche status for me when he said he was glad his dad cheated on his mom because it made him more human.

He didn't exactly say that...imagine you grew up with someone considered legendary or you only heard good things about them...what if you found out they weren't perfect? He can disapprove and still find it humanizing. Why are you always so black and white about everything??

Junxon:

Rod isn't that unusual in Hollywood...rich people have kids and the kids have access to $, nightlife, the beach and what have you. Frankly, I find it more believable he was disinterested and became interested later on and wanted to explore it.
