My very first thought was: “What foolishness is this?” Then I saw a blurb about Meninism on the Time website.
The hashtags #Meninist and #Meninism have been around Twitter for more than a year, and the people who use them generally fall in two camps: people who use the term to call out ways they believe they’ve been victimized by feminism, and people who make fun of the first group for not understanding what feminism means in the first place.
Oh wow. First reaction completely on target.
On the upside, the farce known as “meninism” has inspired some great meme T-shirts, so let it be said that the movements is not completely worthless.
Never doubt the frown. :)
This is why we can’t have nice things in our house…
I think I’ve crossed a word-geek Rubicon of sorts by posting this. Oh well. :)
The following post has a higher than usual amount of profanity (for DWR, anyway). You have been warned.
Eating right is hard. Eating horribly wrong is so very easy. Are we all doomed to clogged arteries, pickled livers, and malnourished obese children? No! Thug Kitchen is here to save us all! What started as an awesome blog is now a cookbook with it’s own trailer!
What makes Thug Kitchen so special? There are lots of health cook books out there, but you may have noticed a slightly unusual tone in the trailer. From the Thug Kitchen FAQ section:
[Thug Kitchen] is here to help your narrow dietary mind explore some goddamn options so that you can look and feel like a fucking champ. We hope readers reconsider what kind of behaviors they attribute to people who try to eat healthy. Everyone deserves to feel a part of our push toward a healthier diet, not just people with disposable incomes who speak a certain way. So we’re here to help cut through the bullshit. Promoting accessibility and community are important as fuck here at Thug Kitchen. We’ve got a big table and everyone is welcome to it.
Busting up stereotypes, promoting a healthier society, inclusion of people at any income level, a healthy dose of humour, fantastic photography, and delicious food, there is so much here to love. I look forward to learning more fantastic things from Thug Kitchen and I can’t thank them enough for what they do.
So now you’ve learned how to eat like you give a fuck. You’re a healthier you and a goddamn champ. You can’t wait to make more of this tasty, cheap, good-for-you food. But part of you figures you deserve a totally bad-for-you reward for all this progress. You’re damn right you do.
