I was watching The Man Trap today, which I haven't seen before, and I was astonished at how sexist the episode was. I mean, TOS is laced with various bits of sexism. Mudd's Women, anyone? The entire show- "I just want to be a normal woman, cooking and cleaning for my rugged husband!" The first line by Uhura in the entire series is "oh, Spock, don't you want to tell me how attractive I am?" That was paraphrased, of course. During the episode(Man Trap), the checker-haired girl(can't remember her name) is walking down the hallway with a tray of food, and her fellow crewmen are oogling her. It was incredibly bothersome to watch this, because it seemed like she was getting no respect from her co-workers. Not to mention the uniforms the females wear. The future may be less conservative, but in all practical sense this was a television show in 60s and you can pretty much assume those uniforms were meant for something more than futuristic social allowances. Finally, most of the women I've seen in TOS are emotional wussbags that serve as nothing more than something nice to look at. Now, I will say that the other Trek series do the same thing- namely the skin-tight suits of Deanna Troi, Seven of Nine, and T'Pol. But it's fairly balanced by the fact these women are shown as intelligent, strong, and worthy of a background story. In TOS, there is such a pronounced disservice to women that my enjoyment of the show has been a bit soured by it. What do you think?
