Just in case any of you are feeling too loyal to the original Battlestar Galactica to check out the new series (although I cannot for the life of imagine why that would be, as the original was so cheesy that I avoided it as a 10 year-old) I give you the original Starbuck, whimpering about the new Starbuck being recast as a woman. Washed up, bigoted asshat.

The new Starbuck, portrayed by the lovely Katee Sackhoff? Hot as hell. And a much more interesting take on the character, too boot.

I'll be over here, handing out babies, as we women do. Jebus.

I was thinking about mentioning his use of the Name of Kate as well, but you put it much better than I would have.

And can I point out that Alan Alda, the poster boy for the sensitive, feminist man, played a hard-drinking philanderer for more than a decade? Hawkeye Pierce is proof that flirting with women needn't be misogyinist. If Benedict and his little Starbuck are seen as boors, it's his fault, not feminism's or society's...

Ah, Hawkeye. A finer role model of outrageous, irreverent, unabashedly sexual masculinity you'll never find.
