(KTAR Phoenix)   On one side of the internet there's a mother who lets her son wear pink, zebra-striped shoes to school. On the other side, a top chef demands that Hasbro make a gender-neutral Easy-Bake Oven to encourage more boys to cook   (ktar.com) divider line 21

Snarfangel: I actually had an Easy-Bake oven when I was little. I'm not sure if my mom just thought boys should know how to cook, or if she expected her second child to be a girl.

I used it a couple of times, but I had a lot more fun with the 75-in-1 electronic experiments kit that my grandfather gave me.

/The naughty mnemonic he taught me for resistor color codes was kept a secret from my mom.
//Would have loved an Easy-BlastTM chemistry set.


When I was a little boy I think my parents were concerned that I was obsessed with a doll house I found in the basement. I loved the miniature furniture (had no use for the dolls). They replaced it by getting me into miniature trains, which I also loved. Still turned out gay as the day is long but God bless them, they tried.

Good God! Everyone knows that men will only cook meat over an open fire!
Hasbro should make a Easy-Burn Fire-Pit TM.

Sam liked the shoes because they were "made out of zebras"

If the gay bashers don't get him, PETA will.

If you had really ever wanted to fark with them, the best thing to tell them would have been that the phallic imagery of the trains is what made you gay.


Anyway, weren't Easy Bake ovens just Creepy Crawlers machines with cake pans instead of goop and molds?

I think I used my sister's easy-bake more than she did.

Can't find a link to it online, but someone in our Ag dept did an interesting cook-off.
Had males and females cook meals (of their own choice) and get rated by others who ate the food.
Then the Ag guys took a 12 oz sample meal from each cook, and tested it for nutrients, etc.

The results were that both genders did fine in the 'taste' dept,
but sadly the males produced meals with too much salt, too much fat, not enough fiber, and low on basic nutrients...

...Which sounds like a typical 'chef-made' restaurant meal in the U.S.


/made me laugh b/c that's been exactly my own experience... my guy can cook up a great tasting protein, but sucks at making a balanced meal.

capt.hollister: Dude, changing another Fraker's quote like that is not cool. You can quote what I said and then add your own response by striking my comment and adding your own, that is the accepted method. You should know that.

am i doing it wrong?

atomicmask: 1. Start this gender bending bullshiat in a proto feminist gender queer movement
2. Get everyone on board to support it, including females
3. Act shocked when women say they cant find a real man.

gender rolls exist for a reason.


Rolls are delicious, no matter what gender they are.

Boys end up being better cooks anyway. It deals with numbers, math, science, chemistry, physics, etc. I mean, even Disney supports the notion that if a rat can cook, it's going to be a male rat.

JNowe: the boy, whose favorite animal is a zebra, replied that "ninjas can wear pink shoes too."

No, they can't. A ninja who wears pink shoes will be seen. A Ninja who wears pink shoes will die.

Stupid pink shoe wearing ninja kid.


The idea is that a ninja needs to blend in with his surroundings. If he's in a Hello Kitty convention or at the mall he'd blend in seamlessly.

tolallorti: So if you moved to Alaska, you'd be practically heterosexual in the winters, but The Duke Gaylord Supreme in the summer? And I guess if you live on the equator you're Bi or something. That's pretty neat.


And you get an extra hour of man-on-man action when you change the clocks for gaylight savings time.

Ovens have genders now?

Cause they're kinda on my list of "things you don't stick it in", and I'm pretty sure most little boys would agree.

Snarfangel: sigdiamond2000: Gulper Eel: Learn how to cook reasonably well (without being a precious fusspot about it) and you will get laid.

If she gets picky about what you make her she's not a keeper anyway. This is my version of Sonny's Door Test.

Fusspot?

You know, a fuss-budget.


What year is this?
