…am I an asshole for pointing out there is no money in Star Trek? I mean, still technically true, because 100% of zero is still zero.

I’m not trying to play devil’s advocate or anything, gender is a shitty way to niche a product, especially a toy. But it’s got me thinking about why LEGO doesn’t advertise like this anymore.I don’t have a lot to back this up, but I’m guessing that back in the day, LEGO sold LEGO’s. Sounds obvious, right? It’s right there in the name! The appeal of LEGO was you could build anything out of them. It was completely up to your child’s imagination. That’s where I think this particular ad is coming from. Your kid’s creative, right? You want him / her to be able to express themselves, right? Buy LEGO, and damn the midnight caltrops!But, when I was a kid, I remember you couldn’t even get loose sets of LEGO. You had to buy “model kits”. They had pieces, sure, but they also had instructions on how to build the toy on the box. This shift was no doubt precipitated by the fact that if all your selling is LEGO, you can’t really expect a consumer to keep buying the same product they already have. However, if what your selling is the toy made out of LEGO, well, then, you can do that a hundred ways to Sunday!But why are models gendered when the blocks themselves weren’t? Well, because toys are gendered. There’s boy toys and girl toys. Bugs and princesses, ninjas and cute fluffy animals. I’m not putting this out there as an indisputable fact, but it is common practice.The problem is further exasperated by licensing. All of a sudden, you’ve got Batman LEGO! You’ve got Harry Potter LEGO! And all those properties come with pre-existing marketing and niche-ing. Boys buy Batman. Harry Potter’s a little more egalitarian.The good news is, the old school “build-your-own” style LEGO is making a comeback. You can walk into a LEGO store right now and buy a non-gendered box o’ bricks. Enjoy your caltrops.

Once, when I was a sophomore in college, a friend told me I was “too nice.” In her defense, I’m pretty sure she was drunk at the time.

Some other drunk fucker in the bar shouted out, “YEAH! Girls only like assholes.”

She nodded her head somberly, “Yeah. My boyfriend’s an asshole.” We tend to globalize personal trends. Spoilers; a week later she had dumped her then-current boyfriend. A while after that, she started dating a friend of mine. A genuinely nice guy (no tm), who also shared a lot of the same interests she did. They broke up after a few months when she transferred to a different school.

Moral of the story is, being “nice”, i.e. acting like an actual human being and treating others as such is the baseline. Mutual interests, confidence, and simple romantic chemistry are important. Also, sometimes things just don’t work out.

I’m starting online classes at SCAD on the 5th, and I’m sooo nervous . I’m very excited too! Don’t get me wrong. 

None of them look too bad, since I’m taking some required classes I need online for a few semesters. I’ve been out of school for a year though and I’ve never taken online classes before. 

Wish your ol’ pal Meg a bucket of luck!
