The Chicago Code and Gender Studies

Shawn Ryan, creator and writer on The Shield (best show ever) is a gifted fellow.  I was particularly struck by this line on Monday’s premiere of his new show on Fox:

“Do you know the problem with men?  If they can’t eat it, drink it, snort it, smoke it, pawn it…they destroy it.”

-Det. Wysocki in the Pilot episode of The Chicago Code
