JJHH88: True Detective shows a realistic depiction of women and their roles during the time, place, and culture in which the show takes place. If you don't like it, be glad that the times have changed and by all means, feel free to watch whatever other show you like. There are plenty of them on TV to choose from. The producers of this show are by no means obligated in any way whatsoever to cater to your feminist sentiments, and by the looks of critical reviews/public opinion, they certainly don't need your viewership to stay around.
