"built for Sin"?

I can't be bothered listing examples of diverse shaped actors in Star Trek, seems kind of pointless when you object to a young woman's thighs.
<Scratches Head> Wait...Would not a woman with beefy muscular thighs be built for Sin?

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around.

Oh, I would do anything for love
but I won't do that ...
No, I won't ... do ... that!

If you want to gender switch Sato, you should maybe pick a male name.

If I were changing the gender of some of the crew I think I would change Pike, Sulu and Scotty.

Not a bad idea, really ... Demura Sulu was CUTE!!! And what a sweetheart, too! Undoubtedly, she had a good, Catholic upbringing.
