The way that “New Girl” shows characters of different genders acting is revealing about what expressions of gender are considered normal in our society.
Gender in the TV Show “New Girl”

Do you think that this is intentional of the writers? In other words, are the writers making fun of stereotypes that occur in society or are they trying to play into what happens with stereotypes? Also when watching New Girl I think that the character Schmidt goes against many gender stereotypes, in many instances throughout the show.
