Alyssa Rosenberg, in Damon Lindelof’s Blithe Treatment Of ‘Star Trek’ Sexism And Why Genre Fiction Gets No Respect (via themarysue)
My thoughts were a) why?, and b) don’t you realize you just pissed off a lot of Star Trek fans, many (most?) of whom are grown ass women? If you’re going to slavishly (and third-ratedly) imitate the 60s show, maybe just have Kirk hit on her (like he does every other woman) and get schooled. That might have actually been funny.
(Also, I read this article yesterday, and it’s real good.)
