I will be honest in that one or two responses struck me as being the byproduct of denial...
This is a slightly unfair assumption. Many of these Trek legends began long before the internet. The only way one could research facts was to go to a library and consult something like the Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature, or other reference. I believe the "first inter-racial kiss" business actually started due to TV Guide saying how important it was during the week of the original broadcast.
Most of the denial I saw in this thread was regarding whether or not the scene constituted sexual assault. For example, one poster compared it to a child having to kiss their Aunt.
