Proably because the design of the skirt made him look like a waitress at Denny's.
I think he looked more like a ******** ********
You can fill in the blanks.
If women have the option of wearing skirts, men should have the option of wearing shorts.
Except liederhosen - that'd be just wrong...
I think he looked more like a gorgeous babe!
OK, I filled in the blank.
It is sexist and discriminatory for women to be FORCED to wear revealing clothing whether they want to or not. Uhura, Chapel et al may have been happy to wear that uniform. Cool. But did they have the choice? Was it "Here is the women's uniform, it's a short skirt, wear it or find another job?" Or did they have the choice of wearing pants? If there is no choice but to wear revealing clothing, then YES is it sexist.
Pants were an option for Women in Starfleet. A few early TOS episodes show crew women in pants. We can assume that most opted for the skirts.
Form what I've read, women are very particular in their tastes. They would like to see Patrick Duffy in shorts, but not many men. Men will see the beauty in just about any woman, apart from a very select few.
Well that's all right then.
Maybe they have super spiffy futuristic pantyhose/tights which don't get ripped all the time
They loved the costumes in Star Trek. The cast I mean. They were gorgeous, they looked gorgeous in them. Men and women. How anyone can call a style which was an icon of its zeitgeist sexist has no soul.
Everyone knows the fashions of the 2260s were ridiculous. But then so were the fashions of the 1960s, the 1860s and the 1760s. Wigs anyone?
But the stupidest of all have to be the 1560s.
And the 1580s weren't any better.
WTF was that about? Why would anyone want women to have huge fans for necks, and men to look like they have huge giant far legs and hips?
Helen Noels adventures crawling through various air ducts would seem to show that they're pretty tough.
Counselor Troi had the best of both worlds-she got to wear stylish feminine dress-uniforms without anyone saying anything, except Capt. Jericho.
Seven of Nine-either her uniform is practical or reeealllly good eye candy.
A little of both, but I think it was eye candy mostly- they made sure emphasize her chest, waist and but in that skin tight uniform
I remember Worf made a comment about how the dress uniform seemed feminine-and Riker replied that it was a sexist outdated comment.
Riker (huffy): "That comment was sexist and outdated."
Worf (Proudly): "So am I."
Actually, outside of the late-’60s Mod look, the fashions for both men and women in the 1960s were pretty basic and practical. The women's dresses were simple and clean. (Which, BTW, is how I like my women!)
Hmm...we seem to have our inspiration for the TMP uniforms!
Yeah except for the heels... not so practical there.
It could be far worse, at least.
Spiked stilettos are really great in fights...uhmmm so I've heard.
