Twenty Twelve : Sexist

Sexist

I love the show, but has anyone else noticed how sexist it is? The only "positive" female character is Sally, who is 100% submissive to Iain, the male protagonist. Even when women are given power roles, such as the police chief Rachel (S02E05), they are ridiculed and corrected by men.

Re: Sexist

The only positive male character is Ian.

While she may not be "positive" the most popular character is Siobhan. I do not think audiences take "positive" characters to their heart. It is usually the character with the most energy and the women in this program are much more active characters than the men.
