Yep...of course I try not to make a big issue out of it because I think it is silly to complain about sexism of the 60's when there is still sexism today.
It's not like I see the new Abrams movies for example as a forward example of feminism.
And it's not like the original series did everything wrong. Just the presence of female writers (such as DC Fontana) in my opinion was a positive form of feminism. Now compare this to the New Doctor Who (which I am also a fan of) which pretty much has no female writers.
