I don't think women need men to tell them what they should find sexy or sexist. Star Trek was much more PC with TNG.

With Abrahms (ugh) Uhura stripped down to her granny-like undies in the first trailer for ST09...no plot purpose what so ever. While I haven't seen the entire film STID ... yet, it looks like it will be the same sexism. Nice to know the feminist movement has influenced cinema in 5 decades. Maybe I wouldn't be so annoyed if I didn't find Alice Eve so irritating.
So you're saying that a female character can't be taken seriously unless she's fully clothed? Or is that that there is never a plot/story purpose for a female character to be partially or totally unclothed? And how does that point of view apply to male characters? Or is it only sexist when women are the ones stripping down?
Too general aren't you?

Let's face it in the context of the trailers and movie the stripping is gratuitous. As it is in most films. In fact I have never found it to be necessary. It will probably put some women off the film.

Oh come on.... A woman walks in to her OWN room, and undresses to change her clothes. That's what women (and men) do in real life. Get over yourself already.
