okay but for real jim kirk would be one of those dads. a kid trotting up to him like “dad, i’m hungry.”
"hi hungry," jim replies. "i’m dad."
a one-quarter vulcan kid trotting up to him. “dad, i am experiencing the sensation of hunger.”
"hi, experiencing the sensation of hunger," jim replies. "what a mouthful. why didn’t we name you something shorter? anyway, i’m dad. no need to be so formal."
my sister and I just spent like two and a half hours talking about how awful the star trek reboot and hunchback of notre dame sequel are and my sister is absolutely hilarious when she’s geeking out about star trek okay
like I almost want her to go against some dumbass dude who thinks she doesn’t know her shit because she does and it’s beautiful
what pop culture thinks jim kirk is like: doesn’t remember the names of the thousands of ladies he’s slept with; must have fathered a zillion abandoned kids; constantly hitting on the women; eternally bang bang shebanging; nonstop love machine; womanizing dongpile; smarmy flirtmaster; smoochy powerstud
what jim kirk is actually like: nerdy feminist quoting shakespeare who likes to play dress-up; turned on by strong, intelligent women and the way spock touches walls
