Women Women and Men Women - Loopier than the Cereal

I've just noticed that it's only the women women who are the straight men in the the show - the manly women - ie those like Charlie, are the ones who get to engage in comedy and be foils; the most striking examples being Bertha and the Mother. The rest of the women are stooges, the ones who conform to the stereotype of needy/hateful women with little self-respect or a struggle of it. Melanie Lynsky I would think exists rather outside the simple duality - put simply, because she's nuttier than a fruitcake. I'll have to think more about this, but it seems pretty accurate.

Casual Sex is one thing, but this is just lazy.
