Episode 24: Ferengi Gender Double Feature (”Rules of Acquisition” / “Profit and Lace”)
Mar 18th, 2021 by Assigned Scientist at Bachelor’s
In this episode we tackle two Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes about Ferengi and their weird gender stuff: "Rules of Acquisition" (a classic "women dresses as man to pursue opportunity" plot) and "Profit and Lace" (a well-intentioned? disaster of '90s transmisogyny). We get pretty personal and ask the real questions, like, why would anybody ever do this?
Warning for body/transition talk, dysphoria, "man in a dress" trope, transphobia, gay panic
