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.

Bingo.

However -- and this is a big however -- these sorts of provincial/bigoted opinions often held in the red states stem from something very, very real: fears. Fear of the unknown, fear of the strange, fear of the new, fear of the smarter/stronger/faster/sneakier.

Some of the most racist folks I know have never met, spoke to, or even seen in person apart from television and the movies people different than themselves.

Fear disappears with sufficient (positive) exposure. Many folks in the heartland never get that exposure, and thus see much of the mass-media pro-diversity message as some sort of attempt at mind control being imposed on them. Thus, reactionary and stupid bullshit.
