Taylor Sheridan's Western Garners Criticism: Unresolved Issues Surrounding Female Characters

The lack of diversity in Taylor Sheridan's writer's room has led to criticism of his latest shows, with female characters bearing the brunt. Viewers argue that the female characters in shows like "Yellowstone" and its prequel "1923" lack nuance and are portrayed as blonde, wild, and silly. This rejection of the "strong women" stereotype is seen as lazy and sexist writing. Moreover, the inclusion of graphic sex scenes for the sake of provocation is also criticized. Fans are calling on Sheridan to improve the portrayal of women in his shows.
