I am a huge Star Trek fan. I have been watching it since I was child. It is a show that I have never given much critical thought to, other than acknowledging its multi-racial cast. One of the useless tidbits floating in my brain is the fact that Star Trek featured the first interracial kiss. It wasn’t until I came across the following video, that I stopped and thought about Star Treks treatment of women. You see, it was just a show that I have become accustomed to viewing without thought.
It seems that Star Trek does not deserve the free pass that I have given it for all of these years. Watch and tell me what you think.
