According to a fascinating article currently posted on AlterNet, “the idea that liberated women don’t prepare food — because they are too busy having sex and building their careers — is just plain wrong.”
As someone who never really bothered to cook much until I was doing it for two, I found this really interesting. The writer, Vanessa Richmond of the independent Canadian daily online magazine The Tyee, observes the following phenomenon:
“…men come across as evolved, sexy and creative when they mix things up in the kitchen. But women seem stuck in Leave-it-to-Beaver-land when they step in front of the stove: domestic suckers who aren’t paying enough attention to their ambition or their libidos.”
Doesn’t seem quite fair, does it?
