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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Because every good one I've been in involved lots of teasing and jokes.

I don't think this sandwich business is nearly so serious as jezebel makes it.

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.


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.

You are acting and thinking irrationaly.

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.

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.

In your hypothetical, your man is a stand-in for this guy just as you are a stand-in for her.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Serving someone isn't some power game and sometimes you go beyond nice things for loved ones. I'm not talking about demanding jack. If the edge of your involvement in a relationship ends where doing whatever the fark you please and no more, well, your selfish. But sure, lecture me about adult relationships. Go ahead. I'm going to take your ideas seriously when assault is the answer to expecting something from you.


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.

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.

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

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.

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?  It's almost as bad as right-wing butthurt.


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.

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.

This is what I came to post, but I wanted to share the article with friends first. Ugh, priorities...

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).

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.

UrukHaiGuyz: 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.


Meh, my suit of armor is having the dents hammered out, so I'm unable to perform any white knighting.

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.


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