  3. She was referring to her opinion of what Sheldon thought of her.

  4. Which one of the writers was the complete mysoginist? Or was it all of them? I lost count of how many times Penny was slut-shamed, not to mention the constant jibes at her intelligence. Once again, the guys are excused for their non-stop attempts at getting laid. Except Sheldon, of course.

  5. If anyone associated with TBBT was misogynistic it was Chuck Lorre. When it comes to this topic TBBT pales in comparison to Two and a Half Men. I'm not so convinced the guys were excused. Howard was an acknowledged sleazeball. Raj was desparate, pathetic, and an ass. It's a sitcom and the writers frequently went for the low hanging fruit. Sex starved nerds; dumb Penny; promiscuous Penny; Amy's 'lesbian' yearnings for Penny, etc. BTW: The only one that ever referred to Penny as a blond monkey was Penny.

  6. Best Sheldon line. Penny has a lot of money tied up in promiscuous futures.

  7. We know of at least one male where there is nothing but apparent mutual admiration: Cookie Monster. She want cookie. If there was any misogyny, he would not be displayed on her right buttock. Also, we learn that they both have a yen for soup. The true test would be to see if Cookie Monster has a Penny tattoo on his right buttock. Leonard even tried to sound like Cookie Monster to woo Penny. Leonard laments. Ernie empathizes. Cookie Monster munches cookies.

  9. Hehe Penny being a genius all along would have been quite the twist!! Maybe she was bored as a teenager and prefered drinking ,stealing horses and tipping cows because she was'nt intellectually challenged in high school ? Seems unlikely but hey , who knows ?? I loved the chess scene ( " you playing chess like Bobby Fischer! " ) , led me to believe she was a quick study ( or it was simply beginner's luck and Leonard really sucks at chess lol ). Too bad the writers didn't remember that in the later seasons , they could have used that to find her a new hobby or a job she actually liked but i'm digressing. I hated the episodes where she was dumbed down for cheap laughs. I loathed the slut shaming of Penny ( funny how the writers were able to forget that Howard was a sleazeball, bordeline creep but never let go of Penny's sexual history for instance. )

  10. Great points, well written. Concerning acting, it seems like acting requires talent and luck: a big break. In the series we were shown Penny's acting talents: A Street Car Named Desire, Penny acting like she would not resist Leonard if he moved in (but he was already there from the pilot episode-Our babies will be smart and beautiful). You don't have to push hard, if they were 'already gone'. I like to think Penny's acting skills aided her success in Pharm sales. Penny should stay earshot from any musical, but wouldn't it be interesting if Broadway put on a musical-comedy where all singers were tone deaf. Also special kudos to Kaley Cuoco. It must be hard to be an actress playing a gradually improving actress.

  11. Your analysis is quite enlightening. I had never considered Penny in this manner. But looking back it is quite possible. Also, she overthinks things as do the other geniuses on the show including her husband. She also picked up her sales job easily and became quite prolific at it. With this insight I wonder why she could not master her acting craft.

  12. Penny should have been revealed to have a higher I.Q. than Sheldon. Think it over. Penny played chess for the first time and beat Leonard. Many things bore Penny: a true characteristic of geniuses. Also, some self-medicate, perhaps as Penny does with alcohol. as recently displayed in the Hemmingway PBS 6 hour series. There are a multitude of examples in many episodes of Penny quickly coming up with problem solutions faster and better than any other cast member. Penny even inspired Sheldon and all the cast members to evolve, improve, reach goals. Q.E.D. Discuss.

  13. I think it was most of them because there were a couple of female writers in the group. This was bothersome to me throughout the life of the show. Penny's sexual history and promiscuity was always injected into the dialogue even after Leonard and her were engaged and later married. Sheldon. of course, was the main culprit and how Penny managed to not slap him upside his head is a wonder. However, I believe their worst and most disgraceful dialogue was when Penny jokingly says being "in a motel with a 34 year-old guy named Luther" when she was supposedly a teenager. This went a little too far for me
