Watch The Adorkable Misogyny of The Big Bang Theory Video | Pop Culture Detective

24 sec read

“The Big Bang Theory provides a perfect lens through which to deconstruct a popular media trope I like to call the Adorkable Misogynist.

“Adorkable Misogynists are male characters whose geeky version of masculinity is framed as comically pathetic yet still endearing.

“Their status as nerdy “nice guys” then lets them off the hook for a wide range of creepy, entitled, and sexist behaviors.

“This is the 1st of two video essays about gender on The Big Bang Theory.

“Next month I’ll focus on how the show relentlessly mocks its four male leads for not acting like “real men,” and in so doing reinforces a whole bunch of regressive ideas about masculinity.” – YT
