I think the writers just have a hard time writing for the women characters in general. The whole part of the episode with "just the women" was a clusterfuck.
While it was embarrassing, it was also realistic. A sad number of people still think in those stereotypical terms-- I have relatives who have conversations like that all the time. And this series takes place in the South, where those old-time notions are even more prevalent.
Indeed. This isn't bad writing. Plenty of women are like Lori who think a woman should cook and clean for her man while her man provides and protects her family. Don't hate the writing, hate the fact that Lori seems to be one of those women who is simply content to be a housewife.
