First of all, I do NOT like the way women are portrayed on this show. The men are given all the funny lines and plots, while the women are often naggy, or bitchy, or just there as objects. I mean, look at how they write the Penny character. She's almost always drunk and is always dressed like a slut and she acts like a total airhead. Secondly, the episode where Sheldon spanked Amy...that was wrong on so many levels. I know there are alot of young girls who watch this show, and I would not want some young girl, or woman, watching that episode thinking that it's okay to let a man put his hands on her in that way. Spanking is violence and violence against women is NEVER okay!! Finally, the recent episode where Howard took some estrogen and started acting like a woman was...OH MY GOD!!! Stereotypical much?! And the scene where he and Raj were jumping up and down trying to get their "man-boobs" to jiggle was really insensitive, mainly because October is breast cancer awareness month and there are alot of women suffering from breast cancer, or who have suffered from breast cancer and this is no laughing matter. If anything, it's making light of a very serious issue. So, if you are smart, GIRLcott this show IMMEDIATELY!!! It is ANTI-WOMAN!!!

I like the show, but I do agree on how the girls are portrayed. My least favorite on the show is Bernadette, because she is way too bossy and controlling over Howard. If there was a show where a man treated his wife the way she treats him, it wouldn't even get off the ground. But, for the most part, it's a pretty funny show. Especially the earlier seasons.
