Talk about double standard ....This is one of the reason why I honestly don’t like guys at times. Hey Bry Sinclair have you ever heard of this Christina Aguilera song called Can hold us down. Well let me tell you some of the lyrics to the song.

’’So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled’’.

Can’t say that I’ve heard of that song by Christina, though I do like “Beautiful”.

You call Uhura bitch and why?
Because I found her to be a cold and unlikable character, who acted unprofessionally in getting her assignment to the Enterprise and also whilst onboard it to her superior. She has an attitude that isn’t what I’d come to expect from Uhura and really grates on me.

o yeah... because she snubbed a drunken guy who later violated her. Uhura is a smart woman. she knew the likes of guys like Jim Kirk, Kirk is a womanizer and she was right about the sex comment, Kirk will have sex with anything.
Kirk is a womaniser, everyone knows it. But if he was a user of women, then word would spread across campus and he’d never get lucky.

kirk already has a reputation in star fleet academy. he has perhaps slept with many of the girls in the academy and worse he uses and humiliates women for his own personal glory....Case in point Galia and the Kobayshi maru test.
How does he “humiliate” them? I didn’t see any posters about the Academy rating the women he’s slept with, or him posting naked pictures he’s taken on his blog, or dishing the dirt with McCoy and his other friends. He is a young man at the Academy doing what many young people (both male and female) do when at university.

Galia is an Orion, who produces powerful pheromones that men can’t resist, so she more than likely bedded him.

As for the Kobyashi Maru, he gets a commendation for ‘original thinking’ for his act of sabotage and cheating. Whilst perhaps not the best reason for it, it does display out of the box thinking, which was one of the things Pike liked about him.

I am surprise you don’t find Kirk behaviour bitchy.As a guy you perhaps find it cool that kirk has had sex with so many women some not even human.
I have never liked Kirk. He’s a misogynistic, egotistical jerk, who gets let off with far too much by Starfleet Command (hell, they even promoted him in the Real Universe). The only good think about Nu-Kirk is that he is far hotter than RU Kirk.

Terms like “As a guy” are sexist and making huge assumptions about me, whilst “not even human” comes across as xeno-racist. You don’t seem to have issues with Nu-Uhura sleeping with a half-alien. Every Trek has characters enjoy emotional and physical relationships with others of many different species, as mature and reasonable adults.

I doubt uhura sleeps around in the academy like Jim and galia
No, instead she just sleeps with her professor.

Yet you call uhura A bitch when she only acted mean to Kirk for good reason. Kirk violated her by touching her boobs and by spying on her has she was taking of her cloths. she was right to shut him down yet you call her a bitch.
You’re right, many people would be annoyed/angry/violated to have someone watch them undress. When did he touch her breasts? That’s a scene I cannot remember.

My opinions of the character have nothing to do with that scene. I just don’t get a good feeling from the character throughout the film. Surely you’ve watched a film/series and taken a dislike to a character, everybody does. Nu-Uhura is like that for me.

Also Uhura deserved her place on the Enterprise.she worked hard for it and finished at the top of her class. She was right to demand that her posting be change....That is not been bitchy that's a stong independent woman.
Then why go to Spock, a man she has influence over and not the woman who was issuing the ship postings? If she is so great then she would be the one that would need to be convinced.

As for ‘strong independent woman’, I like those characters (Kira and Torres are among my favourites of any series, with Admiral Nechayev being a recurring character I have always liked, despite always being class as a ‘bitch’).

shame on you for calling her a bitch.
Shame on me for expressing an opinion that the character comes off as unpleasant, arrogant and stuck up, none of which has anything to do with her gender, but her as a character. I always liked Uhura, and when I heard of Nu-Trek I had hopes that they would make more of her, building on the graceful and elegant manner of Uhura from TOS, instead we get a character who is as charming as an enraged targ.

I swear...you BOYS.
Sexism works both ways, and comments such as this I find offensive. And please, I’m 30 years old, by no means a “boy”.
