I hate to admit this but I am starting to see the sexism a lot of people on trekmovie.com have been complaining about.

Alice Eve in her bra and panties was the worst part of the trailer. Its like it was just put there for the sake of making guys horny and for the sake of having a woman get nearly naked.

And what’s with the pose?

For a split second I thought I was watching a model about to step on the fashion
Catwalk (modelling lingerie) instead of a science fiction trailer.

In 2009, I brushed off the people who called Uhura a sexist character after she stripped down to her bra and panties but now that I see another woman doing the same thing, I am beginning to see a pattern here.

Nu Trek does objectify women.

Because of course, every single one of the above were necessary and valid plot points that were integral to the story.

I have my beef with NuTrek, but honestly, it's obvious she's changing into a space suit of some kind and Kirk is in the room and comments on her body - He's James T. Kirk. That shot is equally as valid as all the examples I've cited above.
