Being cool enough to cheat Kobayashi Maru by nailing a hot chick isn't a flaw, it's a dream come true.
I'm sure women who have been used in a similar manner in the real world would disagree and so do I. The entire Academy section of Star Trek 2009, presented Kirk as a self-absorbed douchebag.
Yeah, but it would've been far worse if they'd left the dropped Gaila stuff in the film. It also didn't do anything to show that Kirk was a "genius level" person and lead to a whole series of contrived events to get him aboard the Enterprise.
