The Complicity of Geek Masculinity on the Big Bang Theory

By Jonathan McIntosh Pop Culture Detective Agency

The Big Bang Theory delights in poking fun at its male characters for their geeky obsessions but there’s something even more pernicious going on just under the surface. Beyond the mocking of geekdom, the show is relentless in making fun of its male leads for not being ‚real men.“ In their quest to prove their manhood the four geeks then end up being complicit in many of the most harmful aspects of hypermasculinity.
