** Miranda is often the one to point these out, like when she gets pity for being single in her 30s that one wouldn't bestow upon a single 30-something male. Yet she hypocritically insists that there must be something wrong with a 30-something unmarried man, whereas a 30-something unmarried woman is simply being "choosy".
** When Richard Wright denies Samantha a job managing the PR of his new hotel simply because she slept with his architect she calls him out on it.
-->'''Samantha:''' If I was a guy, you would’ve shaken my hand, bought me a scotch, and given me a key to an office. Its amazing, a man with such innovative vision could be so short-sighted.
** Also, when trying to get Aiden back, Carrie states that when men make big, bold gestures to demonstrate their love for a woman, they're seen as romantic, but when a woman does it, she's seen as desperate or crazy.

** Miranda is often Many critics feel the one to point these out, like when she gets pity series in general has a rather double standard. Had the show been about four men who have countless one-night stands and dump their partners afterwards for the same, sometimes nitpicky, reasons the women in this show do it would have caused an outrage among feminists. Also, for a show that is praised for talking about sexual taboos it does enforce a lot of stereotypes about genders too, being single in her 30s that one wouldn't bestow upon all men should be strong, fearless and [[BiggerIsBetterInBed well-endowed]].
** As well, for
a single 30-something male. Yet she hypocritically insists that show geared towards women, there must be something wrong with a 30-something unmarried man, whereas a 30-something unmarried woman is simply being "choosy".
** When Richard Wright denies Samantha a job managing the PR of his new hotel simply because she slept with his architect she calls him out on it.
-->'''Samantha:''' If I
was a guy, you would’ve shaken my hand, bought me very bad example of a scotch, DoubleStandard rampant in film and given me television. Throughout their on-again, off-again relationship, any pursuit of Big by Carrie--leaving a key few things at his apartment, wanting to an office. Its amazing, a man meet his mother, saying, "I love you"--was made out to be pathetic, clingy, etc., and was always "punished" somehow, usually by Big freaking out and pulling away from her, sometimes even outright breaking up with such innovative vision could be so short-sighted.
** Also, when
her. But after Big married Natasha, he flat-out stalked Carrie for several weeks--calling her constantly, lurking outside her building waiting for her to come home, continuing to lurk until her boyfriend left, sneaking into the building and practically trying to get Aiden push his way into her apartment, only stopping when she warned him that her boyfriend was coming back, following her to the hotel she was staying at, following her into the elevator, then grabbing and kissing her repeatedly. Throughout all this, she repeatedly and explicitly tells him to leave her alone, and in the elevator, continually pushes him away, telling him "Fuck you" (essentially, "''no''"), before finally succumbing to his advances. While it's undeniable that Carrie states that when men make big, bold gestures certainly could be stalkerish with Big, her behavior was always portrayed negatively and typically resulted in her being dumped, whereas Big's harassment and virtually forcing himself on her was made out to demonstrate be sexy and romantic and resulted in him getting her back.
** To a lesser extent with Steve and Miranda. From the moment
their love for one-night stand is over, she makes it clear that this is all she wants. He responds by constantly calling her, showing up at her place--at one point, threatening to make a woman, they're seen as romantic, but when scene if she doesn't let him in--and overall, repeatedly ignoring her numerous requests that he leave her alone. This is never made out to be bad, despite Miranda's obvious annoyance with his persistence, just a case of the "Wild" guy trying to win over the "Uptight" woman does it, she's seen as desperate or crazy.and get her to let her defenses down.

* HollywoodHealing: In Season 4, Charlotte says she's been diagnosed with vulvodynia, which she describes as "your vagina is depressed". It's played for laughs, and the matter is essentially dropped after a few episodes. In real life, vulvodynia is a chronic, painful condition that can last for years, and definitely not a laughing matter. (It can also make sex excruciating for sufferers, so if Charlotte did have it, let's just say her lifestyle would likely have been very different than what we saw.)

* PrenupBlowup: Trey springs a prenup on Charlotte late in the wedding process, which is considered pretty bad form. The agreement contains an unusual clause that, in the event they divorce, gives Charlotte an increasing percentage of $500,000.00 for every year that she and Trey were married. Charlotte negotiates with Trey's mother to increase the payout to One Million Dollars. ("I'm worth a Million", she says.)
** Considering how quickly that marriage went down the drain it was actually VERY smart on the mother's part to demand it. Though the couple split pretty amicably and it's doubtful Charlotte would have done anything.
*** It's mostly Trey's mother who is determined to leave Charlotte with nothing from the marriage. Trey is happy to let Charlotte have what she wants, while all she wants is to keep their apartment.
