I think the line is sexist because it seem to me that by shouting "the women!!", it objectifies them. Then it classifies them according to their gender in a subervient manner -- rather than just being concerned that two "crewmwmbers" are missing.

What a load of crap I just wrote!
To me, the line itself is not sexist, the attitude towards women in general at that time and on TOS was sexist. And just knowing that attitude makes it seem funny when you see it blatantly used in TOS episodes.

And no matter that Spock was more emotional as a youth. It's still funny to see him upset.
In the end everything will be okay. If it's not okay, it's not the end.
