The Pop Culture Detective: The Adorkable Misogyny of The Big Bang Theory: ohnotheydidnt - Page 3
points out that these stock characters are meant to be likeable underdogs, but treat women with zero respect (stalking, never taking no for an answer, literal rape)

Howard is, before his relationship, a wannabe PUA who stalks and harrasses women and who talks about women like they're animals. Sample "joke": "of course it's your house too, why else would you be cleaning it"

Rajesh is the sensitive, shy guy who's a terrible drunk and mocked for his effeminacy. Sample "joke": "where did she go, it was going so well. She never even got to see my penis"

Leonard is the enabler and the pathetic nice guy who refuses to take no for an answer until the object of his affection is "worn down" and accepts him. Sample "joke": no discernible Leonard jokes detected in the video

Sheldon is the innocent bigot who is openly misogynist. Sample "joke": "Madame Curie was an honorary man. She had a penis made of science"

the show uses "ironic lampshading" to get away with its comedy, ie pointing out that it's racist, homophobic and sexist jokes are racist, homophobic and sexist in the text

the sexism of the characters isn't presented as aspirational, the issue is that it's presented as completely harmless

Women are perceived as too talkative because how much they talk is measured not against how much men talk, but against an ideal of female silence.

Straight Black Men Are the White People of Black People
But when black women share that we pose the same existential and literal danger to them that whiteness does to us; and when black women ask us to give them the benefit of the doubt about street harassment and sexual assault and other forms of harassment and violence we might not personally witness; and when black women tell us that allowing our cousins and brothers and co-workers and niggas to use misogynistic language propagates that culture of danger; and when black women admit how scary it can be to get followed and approached by a man while waiting for a bus or walking home from work; and when black women articulate how hurtful it is for our reactions to domestic abuse and their rapes and murders to be “what women need to do differently to prevent this from happening to them” instead of “what we (men) need to do differently to prevent us from doing this to them”; their words are met with resistance and outright pushback. After demanding from white people that we’re listened to and believed and that our livelihoods are considered, our ears shut off and hearts shut down when black women are pleading with us.

Hillary Clinton On 'Fresh Air': I Am 'Optimistic About Our Country, But I Am Not Naive' : NPR
What implications did all those chants of "lock her up" have for your security, your personal security?

It was a constant challenge for the Secret Service and for what they call "threat assessment." It was something that I was aware of. I had a few times people jumping over ropes and rushing the stage and a few really nasty, threatening things said in a crowd. But what really was unhinged were the online attacks. And they weren't just directed at me, they were directed at anyone — particularly women — who went online and said they were supporting me.

If they identified themselves as a supporter of mine, they were attacked from both the left and the right. They were often subjected to the most vile Twitter responses, YouTube comments you can imagine. It was just so horrific to see the horrible things being said and the threats that were being made, physical threats, to my supporters.

Your Allyship Will Not Protect You – Harvey Jeni – Medium
The woman whose words are quoted at the beginning of this article formed part of a group wishing to shut down the discussion. To debate the nature of gender hierarchy is to debate the right of transpeople to exist, they say. To even speak of the ways in which natal women and girls might be affected by the new law is tantamount to murder, to genocide. And so in this way, the women at Speakers Corner were redrawn as monsters, as Nazis, as a mortal threat to be crushed.

Except none of it is true. All humans exist with basic rights enshrined in law. I know of no woman who does not support any individuals right to live and present how they wish, and to be treated with respect and allowed to thrive in peace. Everybody must have equal access to opportunity, housing, employment and justice, no matter how they identify; I believe this passionately. The conflict occurs at the point at which gender identification is said to determine someones actual sex. We must be able to discuss the potential issues arising from this conflict in an open and respectful way for the sake of everyone, trans included

Why Does Hillary Clinton Expressing Anger Make Everyone Mad?
And perhaps the reason the press, and some of Clinton’s critics on both right and left, react to her legitimate, if arguable, critiques by furiously wishing for her silence is the same reason women’s public airing of fury has long been discouraged and cast as irrational: because if we allowed women’s resentments the same bearing we afford men’s grudges, America would be forced to reckon with the fact that all those angry women might just have a point.

Reporter Katy Tur Shares Her 'Front-Row' View Of The Trump Campaign : NPR
During Donald Trump's campaign for president, there were times at his rallies when he singled out one reporter for criticism. Katy Tur, who covered the Trump campaign for NBC News and MSNBC, remembers those instances vividly.

Tur was working at a rally on Dec. 7, 2015, in Mount Pleasant, S.C., when suddenly Trump called her name and pointed at her from the podium: "'Katy Tur, she's back there. Little Katy ... what a lie it was ... what a lie she told,'" she recalls him saying.

The Women of "God's Not Dead."
The movie actually has a pretty decent mix of male to female characters for this kind of storyline, but the male characters really carry the story. Of the subplots, only one is exclusively carried by a woman–the Muslim girl’s story. Otherwise, all other female characters bounce off male ones.
