Going where all men always go
STAR TREK (1966-1969). the original! my mother and my best friends mother were addicted to this show, and recorded all of them on BETA. anyone remember that? HA! star trek was interesting and fascinating at the time, and it still is, if you can get past all the PIV-entitlement (and racism). yeah thats kind of a big “if” but if you want to watch television at all, you have to do what you have to do.
the thing i remember most about star trek was that it was apparently based on the following premise: interspecies “sex” is progressive, and revolutionary. “sex” with women is the answer to conflicts (mens conflicts with each other); freedom of “sexual expression” is the ultimate freedom. sex-positivism, in other words. sound familiar? i thought so.
captain james t. kirk had a fling with an alien woman on nearly every episode of this show; his flings were restrained to “kissing” onscreen, but are we really supposed to believe it ended there? absolutely not: this interglactic cowboy was having PIV from one end of the known universe to the other. in one episode, he fathers a child with an alien woman, and he fathers another one with a human woman later. and these are just the ones we know about. har!
goal is to “land a man”. yes. there is male-pleasing built-into the military system where men are commanding officers; the starfleet women wore (notoriously) sexualized attire as did the alien women; many women attempted to “land” captain kirk but he was unattainable and unavailable.
normalizing reproductive stress and pain. yes. kirk impregnates two women, even though hes clearly having PIV with hundreds more: the women are left literally millions of miles behind to deal with the aftermath of kirk and his PIV-entitlement. how sexxxay!
pathologizing menstruation. yes. this was a little backhanded, but transparent, swipe at menstruation: spock apparently has some kind of an estrus cycle where he has to return to his home planet to mate, or he will die. its incredibly painful and stressful to him, and animalizes him (with the sweating and the panting) where he is normally logical and rational.
pathologizing older women and menopause/fetishizing female youth. yes. all the starfleet and alien women are young and beautiful; there is one episode where an intergalactic pimp keeps old prostituted women young-looking with drugs.
normalizing simulated/exaggerated female pleasure from PIV and PIV-centric sex. yes. acting. passionate kissing and sexual behaviors in dangerous situations, implying an extreme payout in terms of female pleasure.
rape and rape culture. yes. prostitution and mail-order brides; female androids; abuse of power; restrictive female clothing and shoes; violence; war; mens PIV-entitlement; deception and womanizing; mind control.
