    Why do your homework when you could sit around and do nothing instead?

    Is it a bad thing that every time I see a new post in the Banned and Damned, I get vaguely excited?

    Ooh, who stirred up shit this time? The other day I had a bet with myself that [some member, idk] would get banned. Hope I win the bet - the half of me, that is.

    Then when I see who it is, I find their profile and go through their recent posts to see the shrapnel of calamity they've left behind.
    ...Yeah. It's real bad.
    I don't mean to pry, but why would you even make the eyes?

    I had no idea Dana Scully was such an important role model for girls growing up in the 90s.

    How Dana Scully Inspired Me to Become a Scientist

    I gleaned every detail about Scully so I could better emulate her. She wore a cross, so I started wearing a cross. I practiced her sarcasm by reciting her most blasé lines, hoping the attitude would rub off on me — "Sure, fine, whatever." She was an FBI agent, a scientist, and, as she never failed to remind the people around her, a medical doctor. I hated blood, so doctor was out. Being an FBI agent sounded fun, but shooting guns seemed dangerous. That left scientist.

    Sometimes I wish I could ask for advice/vent but that would necessitate telling people the whole backstory and potentially betraying several people's confidences in the process... and then it would invite a lot of one-sided judgment which would be hard to clarify.I think that is ultimately my main stressor and the motivation behind most of my started threads. lol

    Oh yeah, Scully was every nerdy girl's hero in the 90s. I wanted to be just like her but also I wanted to lay Mulder.

    David is one of the few men I'd go gay for. Gillian Anderson is still hot. Lol.

    There have been other strong female characters with scientific/ professional backgrounds: Dr. Beverly Crusher, Nurse Hathaway (ER), Colleen McMurphy (China Beach), Grace VanOwen (LA Law), but yeah.... Scully is probably the geekiest one.

    One really compelling thing about the character of Scully for young women was the reversal of the stereotypes- she wasn't "the emotional one" or "the heart of the operation," she was the fucking smart and honestly maybe a little bit robotic one of the pair, and a strong skeptic who was very intellectually demanding of Mulder. (Not that he wasn't smart also, I mean, that's one of the things that was so damn sexy about him.) Scully was a character who wasn't written as a "Strong Female Character," she was just a person, a really smart person, who happened to be a woman. For a lot of the show's original run, the character of Scully could have been played by a guy with very minor changes, although in the 90s that would have meant giving up a lot of the sexual tension that was fun about the show. (Nowadays that's not an impediment; people feel free to ship Sherlock and Watson to their hearts' content.)

    I just really can't overstate how exciting that was to a lot of young women in the 90s, myself included- the idea that we could be people first, not written into corners because of our gender.
