Re: The Skant in TrekLit

I'm not saying it's important -- I'm saying just the opposite, that diversity in fashion should be accepted as something people have a right to practice and not argued about and objected to because it doesn't fit some narrow preconception about fashion or gender. You're the one making a federal case out of it; we're just saying it's not that big a deal. If you treat equality as something that has to be made an issue of and declaimed about in speeches, then clearly equality hasn't truly arrived yet. The real way to demonstrate it is not to make an issue out of it, to simply present it matter-of-factly as part of everyday life.
