I saw someone on Twitter the other day ask why people are so into Spock since he not fully human, shows no emotion, and is just smart. I can answer that question simply: I see Spock in the mirror. No, I don’t mean Leonard Nimoy’s thin angular body, though that would be an improvement on what I have. I mean I am a person who defaults too often to literal/logical thinking, but just under the surface is a raging temper and a sexual desire I strive to control. I know what it means to be misunderstood by most of the people I have ever met, and to have my feet in multiple worlds while feeling alien to all of them. I wanted to make my parents happy, and felt they were pulling me in two different directions.
