Re: "Plato's Stepchildren:" Kirk-Uhura Rape Scene?
... But describing it by using just the word "rape" is a misuse of the term.
How is it a misuse given the literal definition of the word?
It is certainly odd that this is still referred to as the "first interracial kiss. Star Trek itself had a previous interracial kiss in Elaan of Troyius (France Nuyen is Cambodian on her father's side).
Plato's Stepchildren is episode #65 while Elaan of Troyius is episode #68.
Yes, Virginia, this post is an expression of my opinion.
