I don't know what shows you were watching, because I never found that female characters' immoralities were easily excused or quickly forgotten. From where I stand, the degree to which the various characters' evil choices would be forgiven or forgotten was directly related to whether or not the primary characters regarded that perpetrator as a friend, not the gender of the perpetrator.

And, hell, this person thinks Whedon is a misogynist and a rapist.
