Has it always been like this, or is it just recently that Jezebel seems to be nothing more than actively trying to look for things to be upset about?  It's almost as bad as right-wing butthurt.

Harrumph! If you're not outraged by cliched gender roles in a terrible blog being humorlessly picked apart in an article that was noticeably paid by the word then I don't know what to tell you.

The guy sounds like a prick, and if she gets him to marry her, she deserves the misery that will come from spending the rest of her life with him.

As a guy who normally finds Jezebel's outrage rather forced, so much this.

This is the exact plot of that controversial unaired episode ofSex and the Citywhen Samantha talks the gals into getting that hot new designer lobotomy and Charlotte somehow ends up with a MacArthur Genius Grant and Carrie becomes a Scientologist before they convince Big to get their brain parts back.

Read that in horse-face's voice and stopped reading.

Oh, no. She's just bottling up the all bitterness and anger and misery so she can inflict it on him later.

It's Jezebel, any woman who even jokes about being nice to man is immediately shamed for reenforcing gender stereotypes.

Hell, that's 90% of the Politics tab on this site. Even when there's nobody to disagree with some intrepid explorer visits freerepublic and copypastas the derp from there in the thread.

Silly girl. By "sandwich," he means he wants to get it on with her and her sister at the same time. HE'S THE MEAT!
 
2013-09-25 05:12:10 PM  
I made sandwiches to get myself out of the doghouse - like No.67, a scrambled egg, smoked salmon and chive creation that combined some of Eric's favorite things to make up for my being 45 minutes late for dinner the night before.

Oh yeah, he's a real catch there, honey.

Just think: This is his good behavior.

Looking forward to when the guy dumps her and in a surprise twist hooks up with the writer of the article. (and forces her to make him 500 sandwiches).

You don't need to get all gender political or anything to just read the article and conclude "wow what a couple of douchebags"

300 sandwiches? Are they dining in hell?
 
2013-09-25 05:17:09 PM  
The guy sounds like a bit of a douche, but it could just be the way Jezebel is portraying it.

In any event her website at 300sandwiches.com is worth checking out, she takes good pictures, writes nice detailed recipes and instructions, and has some tasty ideas.

See... here's the thing. I don't care about these people. I do not care about the author's caring about these people and I do not care about subby's caring about the author's caring about these people.

Now all that is left to do is for some Fark snarkwit to come along and point out how my lack of caring is obviously false due to the fact I went to the bother of clicking the article, reading it then clicking on the thread and commenting on said article.

I care about that Farker least of all.

"You've been up for 15 minutes and you haven't made me a sandwich?" is bound to go down in history as one of the great lines of romantic prose.

What about being at the gym in 26 minutes?

It's possible he is a prick, but I am not going to believe from a blog post by a shrill harpy. The article drips acidic loathing of the very concept that you would serve your partner. If it was a guy doing the sandwiches, this author would have come up with some reason to hate them for that too.

Always been like this. Though no reason to be vague... the "things to be upset about" you mentioned is always men. No matter what the subject is, it is the fault of men, men did it, men ruined it, men got in the way of it, men destroyed it, men oppressed it, or any other variation where men can be hated as a result of whatever the story is.

According to Jezebel.com, women are perfect examples of humanity and men are everything that is wrong with the world. That's about it.

Interesting theory from the comments on the article Jezebel got in a huff over:  She's going to be coming out with a cookbook based on this and it's all a big marketing ploy.
 
2013-09-25 05:20:46 PM  
Those two were made for each other.
 
2013-09-25 05:21:10 PM  
Meh. I'd just take a trip to costco, buy enough loaves, cheese slices, and meat to make 300 crappy sandwiches and call it a day. Later I'd send him the bill for said sandwiches. If he pays and sticks around maybe it might work. But most likely I'd not be in a relationship with a guy like that to begin with unless he looked like Chris evans and then I'd just go the get knocked up route. Worst case I get a pretty baby.

That gives him 11 minutes to enjoy his delicious sammich,.

TFA: Self-styled feminists tell people in a committed relationship that they can't interact with each other in an ironically humorous way that reflects actually caring about the other person because some overweight needy cat-lady type who thinks drinking a cosmo while watching Girls is sophisticated might object.  Here's an idea: find somebody that makes you happy and vice versa and worry less about about what the spin classs set thinks.

Well, he does look like the kind of guy who would prefer eating a sandwhich to eating a taco. If you know what I mean.

If my guy ever said 300 sandwiches = an engagement ring, I would make all 300 in one day and make him eat them and watched his stomach explode like the guy in Seven.

It's more of a food site than a "check out the miserable woman" site. It's shocking to see Jezebel twisting it to fit their narrative!

I don't get it, if it's such a bad situation why doesn't she leave him?
