How come other sources on this site list this crewman as a crewwoman, Angela Tassoni? Can someone attempt to clarify this? Is the relevant reference in "Equinox" or "Equinox, Part II"? -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 04:36, 27 Jan 2005 (CET)

Janet's Star Trek Voyager site and Roll Call both list him as male; even though he wasn't explicitly identified on screen, there were no other surviving female crew from the Equinox (besides Gilmore, of course). The o --> a was probably a typo. -- SmokeDetector47 04:58, 2005 Jan 27 (CET)

But the Equinox survivors looked like they might consist of three men and two females (or is that a short skinny guy in the yellow?)([1]) -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 05:34, 27 Jan 2005 (CET)

That image is sort of screwy. Here's a better series of caps: [2], [3]. The crewmember is clearly male. -- SmokeDetector47 05:43, 2005 Jan 27 (CET)

Good research -- turns out Angelo is just a pansy looking guy. -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 05:56, 27 Jan 2005 (CET)

What is a "pansy", pray tell, and how do such look? --Fenian 06:37, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Dictionary.com provides the answer under definition #3.
It's common enough slang here in North America, though in general I don't believe it's seen as quite as offensive as the Dictionary.com entry implies. At any rate, Mike's comment certainly didn't strike me as derogatory or offensive: he was just using the term as a descriptive, an alternate way to say "Tassoni looks effeminate". -- Miranda Jackson (Talk) 08:17, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
My sincere hope is that the term's employment was not intended to be derogatory. Given how this is, however,pejorative terminology for men who defy present day gender role expectations, my hope is that folks in these forums may refrain from its use. I was a tad taken aback when I viewed it.--Fenian 20:25, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)
