Today we’re going to boldly go where no man has gone before in Star Trek: TNG.

Gay lonely Alex Myerz and political philosopher Simon Pratt are going to be asking one of the great questions of the cosmos, is Lieutenant Commander Data queer?

What does gender mean to Data? Does he identify with human hetero-masculinity or does he have a sense of inauthenticity/dissonance when performing it? And for that matter, what does gender mean in a world where sex and reproduction are disentangled?
