I’ve been watching DS9 with my lovely bestie fallenfirebender. After watching the episode where Quark and Rom have to go back to the home world because their mother Ishka (Moogie) has been charged with the crime of earning profit, I have been wanting to draw this.
For those of my followers who are not Trekkies or for anyone who might not know about Ferengi—
Ferengi culture is dominated by the goal of earning profit, and men. Women have very few rights on Ferenginar. Here are a few examples:
Females are not allowed to earn profit
Females are not allowed to travel
Females are not allowed to address strangers
Females must soften food for males by chewing it
Females are not allowed to wear clothing
Ishka who is lovingly referred to as Moogie by her sons decides screw that, and not only does she wear clothing and earn profit, but she earns /a lot/ of profit and she proves that she ‘has the lobes for business’ and is as good a Ferengi as any male is, even better than some.
Don’t let someone ever tell you that YOU CAN’T do something just because you are a female.
Whether you are a Ferengi female, a hu-mon female, or any kind of female at all— you /can/ do it.
We can do it.
We’ve got the lobes.
LOVE IT!! Keep watching- Ishka begins the headway to the future of a new Ferenginar and goes on to due such great exploits for the people of her rainy bog of a planet.
