Re watching Star Trek at the moment. Holy crap, this was some misogynistic bullshit ;) Either that, or the 15 years since I last watched it I've developed a more sensitive outlook on the world

@secstate Yeah, no. It's... a curious window into past ways of thinking, and it's not a pretty look.
I'll forgive Star Trek for a lot, and have to because it wasn't perfect, but it was also one of the most progressive programs on television in 1966.
The pilot had a woman as second in command. On a military ship. And the kiss between Kirk and Uhura...
Mixed bag, and not trying to ignore the bad. Certainly rough to watch at points.
