I think this question relates to a question I’ve been asking myself since I’ve, (seriously), been old enough to watch sitcoms.
I’m sure this topic has come up before, but I’m haveing a hard time searching the boards.
Why are the men always retarded? The women are almost always the levelheaded ones of the TV sitcom duo. Even the “Cosby Show” was like this. This wasn’t always the case, (“I Love Lucy”). I used to bitch about it a lot, and no one seemed to care. Now I’m glad to see SOME people speaking out about it as an annoyance.
Bill Maher, (who I’m not really even a fan of), was talking about this on his HBO standup show. He was also sick of hearing people say that men couldn’t deal with the pain of childbirth. I agree with this as well… why are we feeding our children this bullshit!? It’s not good for ether gender in my opinion.
Does this piss anyone else off? Anyone thing it’s getting better, or worse?
