Oh, that continues as a major trend. Racist, misogynistic, homophobic...the leading males tend to be all those things. But it doesn't mean the show looks fondly upon it. The writers clearly want us to see how ugly these people (and the culture that produced them) are, with their actions deeply hurting the most likable characters and tearing their own lives apart.
