This.

I never said the barf smile was racist. I said a smiley or the barf smile as you call it that made a person want to vomit when it concerned an interracial pairing is not appropriate because of the history of interracial parings in USA.


What is ridiculous is you been very ignorant of certain words that are not just appropriate to certain groups of people because of their history.

God, are there so many ignorant people on earth.

I GUESS SO.

NEXT.

^ And I think your assertion that interracial pairings should be treated any differently from any other kind is more "blurring on racial lines" than anything KaraBear said.

This is all KaraBear said on the topic:

I can't believe anyone said Spok/Uhura
There aren't even any "certain words" that you claim KaraBear has said.

I'm pretty sure a sizable chunk of the J/7 fandom would use that smilie or its equivalent at the thought of J/C and believe me not a single bit of that would be about Janeway and Chakotay being different races.

Your reading of racism into a poster's dislike of a pairing is awful.

Enough!

I already told you to drop it. You have completely misrepresented the poster in question, and now you're calling other posters "ignorant". Your comments are off-topic.

You have now received an infraction for trolling.

Comments to PM.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Cara007, I do not appreciate being called "ignorant" (among other things) via private message any more than I do here in the forum. Please do not contact me via private message again.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I am a total shipper sucker.
A lot of my picks did not actually ever get together...

- Janeway / Chakotay
- Picard / Beverly Crusher
- Paris / Rain Robinson (from Future's End)
- Paris / Torres
- T'Pol / Trip
- Seven / The Doctor
- The Doctor / Denara Pel
- Jadzia / Bashir
- Jadzia / Worf
- Kira / Odo
- Garak / Ziyal

I'll add these two only because Troi / Worf was just WEIRD and had to go!
- Troi / Riker

I want to put Spock with someone because he is one of my favorite characters, but can't really think of anyone I would put him with seriously. Same with Data... I want to put him with someone... if I think of anyone I'll edit this.

Spock/Kirk?

I was going to say that because it's grown on me lately. I've been watching TOS recently.

Agreed.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Yep I've been K/S since.. there was only K and S

My beloved couples would be..

Kirk/Spock

Janeway/7


(these two are the only couples I was ever invested in, I'm not much of a shipper..)

Reed/Hayes

Ezri/Julian

Trip/T'Pol

Otherwise I can pretty much see anyone with anyone else. Though I so agree about Worf and Troi, did not get that at all. How Troi could manage to deal with all that Klingon brouhaha in her head all day long.. I loath Riker though, I would rather see Troi with pretty much anyone else. I think she would do well with a nice Bajoran.

I would have LOVED if they had made Lwaxana and Odo a big thing!

It is just about the greatest bromance of all time, IMO.

It would have been amusing. I was kind of disappointed that they never really brought it up again.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I'm a big Lwaxana fan and she was great with Odo.. "the thin brown line".

Same. Also, I'm not a big Kira fan, I would have much rather seen Odo get together with Lwaxana instead as a regular thing. They would have been adorable together.
