It's really hard not to see it as sexism when your initial post invoked a very slight variation of the old "she slept her way to the top" meme. Is it so hard to accept a woman achieving her goals through merit and tenacity? Must it always be about sex, and her sleeping with the guy in charge? Even when the movie made it plain that she genuinely deserved her posting, and that her relationship with Spock only served to jeopardize it? I'm fine with your current position. I don't agree, but I can't say I have any problem with your way of thinking. In a crisis situation, priorities often have to shift. We just disagree over whether this situation required the dismissal of these priorities. But you must be able to see why some of the other things you've said haven't gone down as easily.
