“I met a guy. I made a sandwich. I started a blog. And I enraged feminists everywhere,” writes NY Post reporter Stephanie Smith.
Smith’s blog, 300sandwiches.com, has garnered praise and ire alike. A woman is making her boyfriend sandwiches? She’s submitting to patriarchy? Queue the moral outrage!
Smith explains the purpose behind 300sandwiches:
On Wednesday, I wrote in The Post about how my boyfriend Eric’s joke remark after making him a snack — “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!” — inspired me to do just that and chronicle the project on a Web site, 300sandwiches.com.
The blog started as a lighthearted joke between boyfriend and girlfriend. I presented it to the world because I thought at least one person would find the humor in the idea of sandwiches for an engagement ring.
This project is not about me promoting myself as some gourmet chef, nor a desperate plot to win Eric’s love — or a movie deal or Internet fame.
It’s an idea that made us laugh and made for a good, lighthearted blog with some drool- inducing sandwich photos.
Today’s third-wave feminists echo many of the claims made by Betty Friedan. In her Feminist Mystique, Friedan wrote: "... the women who 'adjust' as housewives, who grow up wanting to be 'just a housewife,' are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps—and the millions more who refused to believe that the concentration camps existed."
Making sandwiches for a man encourages “archaic gender roles” and shapes the “marriage industrial complex”? Goodness gracious…CALM DOWN.
Stephanie Smith willingly chose to make her boyfriend sandwiches. He didn’t chain her to the kitchen or hold her at gun point against her will. She made a CHOICE (choice for me, not for thee?) to play off an inside joke and decided to make sandwiches. Get a grip, feminists.
For a movement rooted in so-called “choice,” third-wave feminism continues to perpetrate the status quo by coercing women into lifelong servitude of paternalistic government coupled with allegiance to groupthink. They frown upon women owning firearms, choosing life, pursuing marriage and later becoming mothers. They especially despise individuality and are eager to redefine human nature. More importantly, they hate female pursuit of happiness.
This endless scaremongering from radical feminists should leave one feeling uneasy. Instead of denouncing sandwich-making, people should be outraged over the ever-growing debt, implementation of ObamaCare, Common Core, and similar big government programs. Please spare us your hatred of the American way of life.
Sandwich-making isn’t evil; subservience to government is.
