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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Perhaps you should warn him about this... He should know how easily you would go completely psychotic on him and attempt to kill him like a serial killer. It's only fair you warn him now before he makes the mistake of offering an engagement ring in an 'unapproved' fashion (or at all).

Let me suggest an interpretation that's fair and reasonable to all involved.

"Make me 300 sandwiches" means "be involved with my life for a year, and do something kind, loving, supporting, and nurturing for me."

You only want to marry someone that you know well.  You only want to marry someone who will do nice things for you.  You only want to marry someone with staying power, who can show commitment to a promise and to a person.

Making 300 sandwiches is a way of demonstrating that she fits into those categories.


/or you can put an Oedipus complex interpretation on this
//he wants to marry his mommy cause she makes sammidges for him
///and cuts off the crust, too.

You should, maybe, go to the woman's website rather than taking the Jezebel version of the story as gospel. Jezebel took a tongue in cheek comment and turned it into "bad man!" fodder.

First of all, why the fark does anyone care how two complete strangers live their lives? The woman took what was most likely a little inside joke between her and her BF and decided to start a blog about it. In a day and age where everyone has a blog, she decided to make hers different and clever in hopes that people might actually read it, and guess what, it worked. Now some stuck up biatch decides to come along and give her shiat for it.  Both of them seem happy so what the fark is the problem here?

It seems to me that more and more of what passes for online content these days falls into one category and one category alone. When you boil it all down it amounts to nothing more then "Stop liking what I don't like".

Maybe this is me not fully understanding the point you're trying to make, but there's a difference between doing something nice for your partner and "serving" them.  If I'm making myself lunch and my boyfriend asks me to make him a sandwich as well (or some of whatever it is I'm cooking), I'll go ahead and do it since I'm already there and already cooking.  I'm doing that to be nice because I love him, and I like doing nice things for him.  If he expects, insists, or demands that I cook for him or do other things for him because it's my job to "serve" him, I'm going to kick him in the balls and throw his sorry ass out.

Right, because if you make two (one for someone else) next thing you know you're making 300.

Coco LaFemme: Maybe this is me not fully understanding the point you're trying to make, but there's a difference between doing something nice for your partner and "serving" them. If I'm making myself lunch and my boyfriend asks me to make him a sandwich as well (or some of whatever it is I'm cooking), I'll go ahead and do it since I'm already there and already cooking. I'm doing that to be nice because I love him, and I like doing nice things for him. If he expects, insists, or demands that I cook for him or do other things for him because it's my job to "serve" him, I'm going to kick him in the balls and throw his sorry ass out.

A relationship of equals does not contain servitude.


Or, the woman in question took a silly quip and ran with it so she could make a sandwich foodie site, complete with recipes.

Serving someone isn't some power game and sometimes you go beyond nice things for loved ones. I'm not talking about demanding jack.

I've been dating my boyfriend for 13 years now, so yes, yes I have.  We joke and tease each other all the time, to the point of annoying the shiat out of my parents every Sunday when we come by for dinner.  That said, he's never joked with me in a way that would make someone else overhearing it think that he was ordering me around or commanding me to do things.  That's just our relationship.  If it works for these two, more power to them, I suppose.

If my boyfriend expects me to do shiat for him solely because I'm his girlfriend and he believes it's my job to do shiat for him, then yes, he deserves his balls kicked in.  My parents didn't raise me to be a doormat like that.  I do for him because I want to, because I like to, not because I'm expected to.  The same as he does for me because he wants to, because he likes to, not because I expect him to.  I don't expect him to take out the trash every week, the same as he doesn't expect me to cook dinner every night.  Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.  If I don't, he'll either do it or we'll order a pizza or something.

The only thing I want from him without question is honesty and fidelity, and I'm honest and faithful to him.....but we're not talking about those kinds of bottom lines.

No one "overhearing" this joke thinks the boyfriend wants a slave wife.

Just jezabel doing its schtick, and you buying into it hook, line, and sinker.

You are four degrees away from the joke. You have access to someone who was there when it was made and is enjoying a fun foodie blog. You ignore their opinion and pick jezebel instead.

So now you qualify it to say if he has some misogynistic expectation. That's different and has zilch to do with expectations in a relationship. In every healthy relationship you divide and conquer chores, expenses and emotional maintenance. You do that in a giving capacity out of duty to your loved one and your relationship. That is what I meant about service. The way you make a relationship sound, well, comes out supremely entitled and selfish. I assume you actually mean something different than what you said and have been snookered into thinking that this guy is what the shrill harpy painted him as.

If this guy had an ounce of seriousness behind this demand, it's perfectly reasonable to call him an ass and give the chick some sh*t for putting up with it.

No. You made a snap judgement. You just admitted you didn't go to the woman's blog until I said something. Your confirmation bias was firmly in place. Nothing was going to change your mind.

Your critical thinking was non-existent.

I agreed with Jezebel yesterday regarding a real housewife and her husband promoting spousal rape. I agreed because I FOLLOWED UP beyond the initial story.

That's not service.  That's why I took issue with you using that word.  Of course Adam and I split up chores and what not; he hates doing laundry, I hate scrubbing toilets.  Of course we divide expenses, otherwise we'd be flat broke and living with my parents, and while my mom is a wonderful woman, we're a little too old for that now.  We don't do those things because of "service", we do those things because we love each other and want our relationship to continue succeeding, and fighting about dirty toilets or a bill not getting paid won't make that happen.

mediablitz: suelswalker: 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.

You should, maybe, go to the woman's website rather than taking the Jezebel version of the story as gospel. Jezebel took a tongue in cheek comment and turned it into "bad man!" fodder.

I enjoy cooking for my SO. She enjoys me cooking for her. I don't see the issue.


In my household, my wife enjoys playing Stepford Wife where she puts on some lingerie and an apron and cooks for me while making sure to bend over in ways that give me a good view of her body while I wait at the table and watch. Then she brings me the food and we eat it and after that we go and have sex, sometimes right there at the table.

If she were open to us putting this online (which I just did I guess?), I'd love to see the Jezebel run with that one because the fact is this is all her fantasy and her idea. Where do they get off telling other women they are wrong for being happy in a relationship that doesn't conform to their standards? It's none of their business.
 
2013-09-25 06:31:36 PM
I'm glad to see I'm not nearly alone at finding TFA writer very hard to sympathize with.

For me, the magic food/love offering is apple pie, and I am eating a warm slice right now, so I'm really getting a kick. She makes her share of sammiches for me too, but the pies are best. I suppose our relationship is Jezebel-scornworthy too.

I almost never ask for a pie, sammich, or breakfast, but I almost always say yes when she offers. And thank you when I'm done.

Not sure if insulting, but I'm bored, so what the hell.  I think I can count on two hands and have fingers left over the number of times I've been asked why we're not married if we've been together this long.  I started dating him when I was 18; by the time I hit about 25, they figured it wasn't going to happen and moved on to hassling me on why we don't have any children yet.

And, of course, the "jezebel" in question seems to have glossed over this part of her bio.  I'm betting it's actually the "OMG SEXIST" hubby-to-be that spends more time in the kitchen...

Some might say the idea is sexist. "A woman in the kitchen-how Stepford Wife of you!" a friend argued. I say come over for dinner,  and watch E whip up roasted duck breast with a balsamic and currant sauce with a roasted parsnip puree and shaved pickled beets in no time,  and you'll see who spends more time in the kitchen.
Some say I'm just desperate to get engaged. Hardly. I don't have to be. E didn't say "cook me 300 sandwiches or I'm leaving you!" He gave me a challenge-a dare, to some degree-and the type-A, Tracy Flick side of me can't stand being challenged. I will prove to him and the rest of the world I can make the 300 sandwiches.

It isnt about whether you found humor in it.

It is that you took something specifically emoted like it was, and then made a serious response.

Since you don't disagree with the meaning of ":P" emote, I can only presume you lack basic social response skills.

Which, again, explains why you would agree with a jezebel article of all things.

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.

Disappointed to find nobody working on the blowjob-to-sandwich conversion rate.

I'm willing to set the bar fairly low, since I love sandwiches and they never taste as good when I make them for myself. Sheer number of ingredients isn't important, assuming it's tasty. A delicious grilled ham-and-cheese, for example, would probably clock in at 0.5 bj. A well made Reuben could get as high as 1:1, assuming the corned beef is home cooked.

Jezebel was a princess, identified in the Hebrew Book of Kings as the daughter of Ethbaal, King of Tyre (Phoenicia) and the wife of Ahab, king of north Israel.

According to the biblical accounts, Jezebel incited her husband King Ahab to abandon the worship of Yahweh and encourage worship of the deities Baal and Asherah instead. Jezebel is said to have persecuted the prophets of Yahweh, and to have fabricated false evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. For these transgressions against the God and people of Israel, the Bible relates, Jezebel met a gruesome death - thrown out of a window by members of her own court retinue, and the flesh of her corpse eaten by stray dogs.



Yeah... Nice farkin' role model, ladies.

Jezebel is where bitter, angry women go for their Two-Minutes' Hate... All day.

mediablitz: PsiChick: ReapTheChaos: PsiChick: mediablitz: The woman who wrote the story doesn't sound bitter AT ALL.

Because naturally, when watching someone make three hundred sandwiches for a guy whose morning line is 'why haven't you made me a sandwich yet', the first reaction is to be jealous and bitter that you can't attract THAT fine specimen of humanity.

/Seriously, articles like this are great reminders of why being single can be a good thing.

Perhaps if you read the woman's actual blog, instead of the rant filled man hate biatch fest on Jezebel, you would have a better understanding of the situation. But then again you may simply prefer to hate a guy you know nothing about.

Aaaand the guy still comes off as a social retard. It's not hate. Some people are jerks--on purpose or accidentally, whatever--and that's how the world spins. Just because Jezebel says something doesn't mean it's automatically wrong.

No. You made a snap judgement. You just admitted you didn't go to the woman's blog until I said something. Your confirmation bias was firmly in place. Nothing was going to change your mind.

Your critical thinking was non-existent.

I agreed with Jezebel yesterday regarding a real housewife and her husband promoting spousal rape. I agreed because I FOLLOWED UP beyond the initial story.

You were ready to hate, and Jezebel made it easy. Obfuscate all you want.


Hey, genius? It's not a snap judgement if you're reading excerpts from the blog...that turn out to be  literally the content of the page. Jezebel didn't take anything out of context, didn't screw up facts.  It's the same damn scenario--a moran cares more about sandwiches than anything else, and another moran is sticking around for some reason. That's stupid. It'd be stupid no matter what gender was on what side, what color the people involved, or if the people involved were three-headed aliens.

'Unapproved'? No - it was purely insulting. No person should think themselves such a great catch that they're willing to debase someone else to prove (or in this guy's case, bestow) their love. Its pure humiliation.

Relationships should be an equal partnership, not blackmail.

FrancoFile: Let me suggest an interpretation that's fair and reasonable to all involved.

"Make me 300 sandwiches" means "be involved with my life for a year, and do something kind, loving, supporting, and nurturing for me."

You only want to marry someone that you know well.  You only want to marry someone who will do nice things for you.  You only want to marry someone with staying power, who can show commitment to a promise and to a person.

Making 300 sandwiches is a way of demonstrating that she fits into those categories.


/or you can put an Oedipus complex interpretation on this
//he wants to marry his mommy cause she makes sammidges for him
///and cuts off the crust, too.


Given that interpretation - where was his show of committment? Or what did he do daily to be nice?

There's really not enough info in the TFA, or even the blog that indicated a 'give and take'.

Sure, I would snark about some guy being all caveman, but IRL, if its not equal, or close enough, forget it. Marrying someone you respect has staying power too.

For a lot of men food really does equate to love. She's being a good lover, as is he apparently, since he seems to do a lot of culinary stuff as well. What you people being shocked about this don't seem to get is that they're likely bonding over a shared interest. It seems quite healthy to me. She clearly takes pride in creating these sandwiches, making each one unique. Who the fark are you to tell her she should feel humiliated?

It's like Jezebel readers intentionally ignore humor in order to be outraged by the bare words when it's a man saying them.

Clearly, the couple were having a laugh together and his statement was ironic, not a serious "get in there and make me a sammich, biatch."

I run into this a lot around here. People read my posts as if I'm speaking them in anger, and it never occurs to them that I'm laughing or smiling as I write. It's a joke, people. I swear, some of you were born ACHING to be offended.

It's like people think she's weak or "giving in" to her man as though loving union were a constant bloody battle between two hate-fueled combatants or some shiat. It never occurs to them that someone who gives selflessly could be happy or strong. They fail to see that by saying "I'll marry you at 300," he is subverting the traditional gender/power roles and putting the ball in her court, effectively giving her the power to propose, as it were. You'd think these people would recognize and appreciate that kind of stuff but all they want to do is hate.

I feel sorry for your love life if you don't see there is at least a chance that this is a romantic gesture based on a non serious joke. Jezebel's response is infantile. Why do you think it is healthy to view every action as some power game?


Well, yes, there is a  chance, I just don't think it's very  likely based on how the author of the blog is phrasing things and talking about what she does.

I am also firmly of the opinion that most people in love are stupid anyway. Myself included.

Literally Addicted: Fafai: Literally Addicted: Read it how you want.

You wanted to kill the guy like in Seven. That was you right?

Did I write that about him? No.

Did I say if MY guy tried to equate making sandwiches to a requirement in earning a proposal of marriage that I would make him eat all 300 at once until he busted a gut? Yes.

If you're going to pick on what I say, at least have the courtesy to read.


In your hypothetical, your man is a stand-in for this guy just as you are a stand-in for her. You set up the same scenario except with you and your man in their places so you could demonstrate how it should have gone and show this poor woman how she should have reacted. Which was to commit murder by sandwich.

This is the definition of a tempest in a teapot. Jezebel is making an argument that relationships are bad. The argument that romance is bad. People get out of relationships what they want. 300 sandwiches is not an example of imagined bogeymen. But I think you already know this.

Hey, if I needed to make 300 cheesecakes to get BJ's for the rest of my life, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

//That's the equivalent of sandwiches for marriage for guys right?

Cheesecakes are a lot more work than a sammich, which just proves men are more giving lovers than women. :)

Coco LaFemme: 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.


Yeah, cause spending 5 minutes to make him happy 300 times over 2 years is SOOOOO much to ask for him giving up his freedom to fufill her primary female desire.

One day we are going to find out that Jezebel is run by one of you Farkers who keeps trolling and upping the ante with slowly but surely making the articles more and more ridiculous wondering when the readers will catch on...


/they won't.
 
2013-09-26 04:13:23 AM
So make sandwiches if you like, or don't. And get married if you like, or don't. Just do stuff you want to do and don't get so transactional about it.

Unless of course your relationship is about transactions and then there's no helping you.

Waiting for the inevitable porno parody, "300 Blowjobs."

This is faker than Pamela Anderson's tits.

It's an excuse to write a blog and hopefully cash in on a book/movie deal like Julie and Julia.

/Wonder who she paid to get this sorry story in the post

I thought it was awesome that Julia snubbed that OCD twat.

umad: libranoelrose: Researcher: Coco LaFemme:

Damn you posted a lot of this thread... but the thing I don't get, and this is re: marriage.

Can you imagine how much money you would have saved on taxes alone?

Romantic nonsense aside, marriage has and always will be a financial arrangement in addition to whatever cultural flavor of lovey doveyness you ascribe to. That's just leaving money on the table, I don't get it.

Is this a trust troll?

He has a point. She could save herself some money on taxes and take half of his shiat if she ever decides to leave. There are zero downsides for her.

/for her bf on the other hand...


Oh come off it, while yes at this point in time marriage makes sense, it's just a legal contract anyway.   At this point it's only to enforce inheritance and "next of kin" rules.Add in a pre-nup agreement and they're golden.

/Yes, all us chicks are after your money
//Weddings are bullshiat, marriage contract is golden

Odd how there are more posts debating variations of the word sandwich than heaping praise upon a hysterical post like this.  The thread should've been closed after this one.

/well done I say

Would you care to provide  any evidence for this? That's a hell of a claim.

jayhawk88: RedPhoenix122: 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?

You just described like 90% of the internet in general.


Jezebel, like a great many sites, is simply a hate site packaged for consumption. The women there actively hate any man, if he acts like a man. They also really hate the white knights room but they pretend to tolerate them.

Jezebel (and sites like it) have a mirror: the crazy MRA sites. Same thing, packaged for a different gender.
