You have NO idea...
This is partly a political issue - many African-american women routinely wear wigs - and for actresses it's partly down to pressure from studios:
I believe it has the distinction of the only book to mention the contents of Kirk's pants.
As a love instructor myself, I take personal offense
Kirk'sJunk...I can't believe no one has taken that username.
What a strange thing to get annoyed over. Impractically exposing leg skin is only for female Starfleet officers?
Any fight scene in Star Trek without Michelle Yeoh. My headcanon has Prime!Georgiou being a fighter, too.
TMP novelization. I remember my thirteen-year-old self going "WTF did I just read?"
Shouldn't be for anyone in uniform.
I didn't say I was annoyed: I thought it was a cringe. Hell, even the producers cringed enough to get rid of it after a few episodes.
Can you imagine them fighting Jem
Hadar or Klingons in that?
Having watched Xena and various other fantasy heroines, yeah I can imagine it.
"Yangs? Yanks? ...Spock! YANKEES!" *Star-spangled banner fanfare plays*
That time the Enterprise was taken over by an incorporeal alien summoned by a bunch of kids making the jerk-off gesture.
You didn't say "Starfleet officers." You said "men," so this argument doesn't make sense.
Marina Sirtis was cringing at the memory of her space yoga outfit at Shore Leave last year . . . .
OK, I meant male Starfleet officers wearing those skirts that they wore in the first few episodes of the first season of TNG. It was just a little cringe to me.
I could see where Roddenberry might have been going with it, and when they abandoned the idea, there was cringe in it.
If they could have found a better skirt, I might reconsider. Otherwise it's the cosmic cheerleader thing. Which was a cringe.
I'll repeat my question. Why was it fine for women to wear that getup, but not men?
Who said it was? The skirts for women were abandoned almost at the same time. They're free to bring back the skirt for men and women if they want, just like in the 09 movie, at least for women.
Gersha Phillips wants to.
Yes, but we’re they more sensitive to correctly pronouncing “Orion”?
That “love instructor” reference came after Kirk used a colorful metaphor he learned from his grandfather, right? #TwoFerCringe
I remembered some more:
The baseball episode of Deep Space Nine.
Chakotay and Seven of Nine getting together.
15 seasons of Drag Race trained me for this kind of thing
I prefer wig police thankyouverymuch!
The skirt/leggings/boot combo looked great on Lt. Amin(?). I hope she still has a chance to play with the design now that Disco jumped out of the era.
Death to the opposition those who hate on Take Me Out to the Holosuite!
