The Big Bang Theory is a show about a bunch of socially inept scientists who can’t talk to women yet at the same time all manage to somehow woo women so attractive they make Greek Gods develop bulimia. While the main focus of the show was the adventures of these men of science and them struggling to exist in a world that couldn’t accommodate their vast intellects, it’s now the Sheldon Cooper show.
Sheldon is by far the show’s most popular character, his style, mannerisms and quotes have leaked so far into pop-culture answering a question with the word “bazinga” is both a way to show how cool you are and have people want to kick you in the nuts with enough force to shatter your future children’s eardrums. However, laughing at Sheldon, and in particular his mannerisms (aka, half of his freaking character) is exactly the same as laughing at someone with serious mental issues. Why? Well, that’s because Sheldon pretty much embodies every trope of a person suffering with aspergers syndrome.
There are literally entire forums online full of people with the condition noting similarities between what is seen on screen and the condition. But they’re just people on the internet, they could be lying, and of course, the show’s creators have always denied that Sheldon has the condition, however one person has said, flat out that Sheldon couldn’t display “more facets of it”. Jim Parsons, AKA, the guy who plays Sheldon in the show. Which couldn’t be a clearer admission of this being true if it was written in invisible ink on the back of a diamond.
So basically, every time you laugh at the Big Bang Theory, in particular anything Sheldon does, you’re basically laughing at a person with undiagnosed mental issues struggling to live in the real world. Wow, TV is dark these days, huh?
