We briefly see a conversation between Troi and Crusher discussing odd physical anomalies.

Troi and Crusher discuss how their boobs are getting firmer (due to the rejuvinative properties of the planet they are on), surely that qualifies for a -1?

Sexual discussions are in no way related to sexism. The key point to take away from Troi and Crusher's discussion of their boobs is that at no point during the discussion did they feel the need to ask for a man's opinion of their boobs' firmness. It was entirely centered around how those two women felt about their own bodies. That is actually a rather feminist dialogue for a movie.
