Is being owned by beautiful women, all that bad?

Nothing new in this, it was part of the plot of Thesmophoriazusai ... a play by Euripides, 2400 years ago.  The joke was, the single old women got to pick men first ;-))

The future looks a lot like Rupaul's Drag Race.

Dunno, seems tame compared to what we have today. Today the women buying him would a screaming like howler monkeys to rip his balls off for being part of the patriarchy

I doubt someone owned by a violent beautiful woman is any better off than someone owned by a violent ugly man.

I believe I've seen every edition of the original Startrek series (if that is where this came from), but I can't remember this one.  It's been years since I watched the series, so I may have simply forgotten it.  It does seem like a Roddenberry script, which often touched on topics of current concern.  But if this is from Startrek, that would actually precede the women's movement by a few years.  Also, if this were produced today, I'm not sure if it would be considered politically correct or an affront to women.  This one doesn't quite capture the essence of feminism.  This isn't really what the women's movement was/is about, I don't think.  It was more just like a description of a screwball society.

Gene and Majel did more than one TV pilot.  This was one of the pilots that didn't fly.  John Saxon (one of the actors in the clip) had bad luck.  Majel's Earth: Final Conflict did well.

I recognized Lurch, and I knew the other guy looked familiar, but didn't quite get that it was John Saxon. Haven't seen him in that many shows or movies. I recall he was in Enter the Dragon, but otherwise I'd have to google him to know more.

This pilot was pretty obscure ... it doesn't even show up under "selected TV credits"

He did a whole lot of work, just never got the starring role.

I had to wiki all the references.  And given the time frame, they should all have been familiar to me, a sci-fi watcher.

That none of them were familiar does not say much for them!  LOL!
