A friend’s Facebook status:
I just finished re-watching Star Trek (The Original Series).
WOW… every single episode is uncomfortably misogynistic.
EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE.
He then amplified this for a friend who questioned the above statement:
in this case misogynistic does not mean “hate” so much as objectification and dismissal — In the first few episodes of the first season we hear that women are prone to more emotional outbursts than men, that they are all searching for a man to care for them, that they need a man to be self actualized.
That women can be coaxed from their command duties (commit mutiny or traitorous activity) when a man shows interest.
Even the first episode which had a female officer as second in command (With Command Pike) the female officer was shown to be lustful toward Pike at one point and catty when compared (by the butthead aliens) to the younger ensign.
Me, always trying to be helpful on social media:
You could create a new series: Woke Trek. All officers of the Starship Safe Space have PhDs in Comparative Victimhood.
Readers: What would be the ideal science fiction series for our woke time?
