If it's OK to allow Kirk to look like a chauvanist for the sake of showing him "grow", why not some accidental passive racism while he's otherwise trying to apologize for being a wham-bam womanizer?
I've yet to see anyone actually prove that Kirk is a chauvinist in this timeline. He's young and he likes sex. I'm pretty sure you're going to find tons of young people who are exactly the same in the real world.

If JJ and company are the serious auteurs that some are claiming he is...
I've yet to see anyone claim this. J.J. Abrams and Company are people who make movies for money. They understand one simple fact of the business: if you don't make entertaining movies, you won't be making movies for long.
