Jo and Tamsin talk about Star Trek: The Next Generation’s The Outcast. 1992’s decisive answer to the often unquestioned excuse of “well, this media is more than twenty years old. Of course it was terrible about queer people.”
Star Trek dealt with trans stuff, and we made an episode about it.
Joe revisits a childhood classic as two of his unlikely heroes, Bill S. Preson Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan bumble through history, being super problematic in a way that just plain doesn’t bother Joe, for reasons that will be explained. Enjoy! Or don’t.
