Is The Taming of the Shrew Controversial?

Some find Taming of the Shrew one of Shakespeare’s most compelling comedies, while others find it highly controversial. Do you think the play condones humiliating tactics against women? Or does it mock unfair social attitudes? …or is it a light-hearted comedy that is not supposed to be taken seriously at all?
