Give Kirk a Break-Spock’s the One Putting Women Back in the Kitchen
This blog post argues that within the world of Star Trek:TOS Spock is a far more sexist character than Kirk. Arguing that while Kirk seduces women he does not do this out of disrespect but rather because it is his most effective means of preventing said women from hurting his ship or his crew. The major point being that despite the inherent sexism of the world he lives in and the situations he is put in his individual actions are justifiable.
While not directly related to much of this course I found this blog post very interesting and would be interested to hear the thoughts of a gender-studies scholar and/or a true trekkie on this.
