Broad City is groundbreaking in allowing women to use potty humor
"TV has long neglected to consider women’s bodies as anything other than sexual objects," says Caitlin Wolper. "Men could fart up the screen, but on TV, a woman’s bodily functions either went unmentioned or were presented as shameful and disgusting. There’s a whole plotline in Friends where the guys are grossed out by breast milk. And Sex and the City, title aside, erred prude when it came to bodily functions: An entire episode was devoted to the importance of a closed bathroom door. Broad City, on the other hand, lets us right into the bathroom with its characters."
