Re: Why did Janeway have such bad taste in men...

But that is the bare bones reality of the situation aboard Voyager.

Janeway had every chance week after week to prove that she was anything else otherwise, but she just couldn't get hot under the collar about almost everyone.

You do know what asexual means?

She just needed a bloke who looked a bit like a girl to keep some semblance of balance.

Re: Why did Janeway have such bad taste in men...

I'm not seeing this asexual argument at all, unless this is just some dig at the fact that she doesn't have a giant rack.

And she was in love. She was engaged. Along with the occasional fling. They were usually lousy, though, save for a couple.

Re: Why did Janeway have such bad taste in men...

Asexual means that she isn't interested in sex or looking for a sexual parter(s).

She was pushing 40 and engaged to a guy she's known since she was 10(Jeri Taylor novel reference) which sounds like a safety more than a love connection, and falling in love badly is just one reason not to want to fall in love again.

It's got nothing to do with what she looks like.

For me it has something to do with that.

She is just not that pretty.

I liked the idea of an asexual Janeway.
Let us not speak of this ever again.
I think its funny that people are arguing over this again. "If Janeway isn't having sex every 30 minutes, then she's asexual." which has a pejorative connotation.

But as froot has already mentioned... at the start of Voyager, Janeway was already engaged and determined she WOULD get their crew back home again. She wasn't going to throw over Mark that easily.

JANEWAY: Home is home. Itís where we belong.
GATH: Couldnít you create a new home here, with us? Can you imagine a more delightful place to live, where you could pass your time extracting pleasure from every moment. I promise you, you and I have many such moments to explore.
JANEWAY: Yes, but for how long? Iíve seen how quickly you get tired of your pleasures. All that interests you is whatís new and unexplored. After a day or two it becomes commonplace.
GATH: Yes?
JANEWAY: We prefer permanence. The reward of relationships that endure and grow deeper with the passing of time.
GATH: You would loose those notions if you stayed with us.
JANEWAY: You may be right. And thatís why we have to leave.

To disrespect Janeway's fidelity to Mark in her first 2 years in the DQ, is to disrespect Sisko's fidelity to the memory of his wife HIS first few years on DS9.

Neither were asexual, they were simply celibate and yes, there's a difference.

Oh... and Vas is right, Jaffen WASN'T a bad choice.

Re: Why did Janeway have such bad taste in men...

Respecting Mark is one thing. Becoming worried about what he'll do to her dog if he suspects she is disrespecting him is another thing entirely.

Kathryn Janeway cannot stand bullies.

She has no choice but to cheat on him often and well.

Ugly girls are always fat?

Lots of ways to be ugly.

But please consider, the more fat, the bigger the boobies.

Re: Why did Janeway have such bad taste in men...

You hope a female is asexual because you don't like the way she looks? If she's not pretty enough for sex in your mind, she isn't fit to be having sex with anyone? Because looks are the only thing that matters?

I hope you don't think that about real human beings. That's just... incredibly wrong. I hope it's just a joke.

EDIT: Guy has a point about the boobies.
