I am not trying to bash the show. I love the show and the characters. I am just analyzing the show.
In Wrath and Stalked, Munch, Elliot, and Cragen were all worried about Olivia going out and doing her job because of the men who were stalking her. Elliot even got her a protective detail. Do you think that Elliot would have gotten a protective detail for Munch or Fin if they were being stalked and they were his partner?
Now, thinking of all the detectives who have come and gone and stayed. The women seem to be treated a lot more gentle than the men are. I have seen Elliot come to blows with another detective (episode about the overweight teens who attacked a piano player, it was after Olivia had left). I have seen Munch and Fin almost come to blows (earlier season). I have seen Fin and Elliot almost come to blows in the episode COLD. I have never seen any female detectives come to blows with the male detectives. The worse I have ever seen is Elliot raise his voice while in a heated moment with Olivia because they were sleep deprived over a case. Does it have to do with women being biologically the weaker sex? Does it have to do with the fact that the male detectives would feel bad for almost coming to blows with a female colleage more than a male colleage even if they are all cops?
Is it right or is it wrong? Does it exist or does it not exist?
Tell me what you think... if you think I'm crazy you can tell me that
