i know that some gross male dudebro is going to mansplain star trek to me at some point in my life, and at that moment i will cut him off with a theatrical “oh, the sound of male ego. you travel halfway across the galaxy, and it’s still the same song.”
this is an excellent response for 3 reasons.
1. The quote is actually from star trek, so if he doesn’t get the reference, it means it’s likely that I know more about the show than he does.
2. If he does get the reference, he’ll have to eat his fucking words
3. if he doesn’t get the reference, he will assume you have been halfway across the galaxy and are therefore an alien. and of course it is always good to have at least one person convinced you are an alien.
that concludes this text post. have a nice day
