Throughout the show, Mindy is a self-centred bully who is mean to everyone. As a woman of colour who does not have the "perfect body" (according to society), she could have been the perfect role model for young girls and even women who feel like they are not good enough because of their body type or skin colour. Instead, she is a mean-spirited character who is obsessed with finding a man, and keeps referring to herself as thin, although it is clear that she is not, making women feel like they need to be skinny to be beautiful and achieve greatness. in addition to that, Mindy is a horrible person who treats her peers in a rude and obnoxious manner; she always insults them, Morgan in particular, and does not care for their feelings. I have watched all of the episodes in hope that her character will change, but it did not happen. Another issue that I have with this show is Danny's character. He is a stubborn, misogynist, and primitive guy who always thinks he is right. Making Mindy become a housewife without even consulting her and asking for her opinion on the matter is just absurd. Saying that she cares more about her career than having a family was a huge slap in the face for every mother who has a child/children and is still working and building a career for herself. This show could have been amazing, teaching the upcoming generation how treat, and be treated well. Instead, all it did was tell girls that they need a husband to be happy, that they can't be both mothers and career-women, and taught boys that it is okay to degrade women.
