Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that MTV's Ladylike is a hidden-camera show designed to test the double standards that society imposes on women and men. It features strong language (curses bleeped), sexual innuendo, and crude humor. It also contains strong themes about gender stereotypes and the public's failure to recognize them lots of the time.
Is It Any Good?
This crudely funny but smart series demonstrates how society continues to perpetuate double standards for men and women, from social behavior to professional careers. The hijinks featured here create lots of awkward and inelegant moments, but they're purposely designed to make viewers uncomfortable with the sexism revealed.
There's some sexual banter and risqué language, but no doubt that folks who like this kind of comedy style will appreciate it. Plus, the show's edginess doesn't prevent it from challenging people to recognize how they expect women and men to behave according to traditional (and often troubling) gender roles.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
