Feminism is essentially women revolting against traditional gender roles and wanting to have the advantages of being a woman as well as those of being a man. While at the same time, they want men to enjoy no advantage from their masculinity.
What this means at home is that men cannot count on women cooking for them and feeding them, notwithstanding that men take the mantle of working and providing for their families.
Since home cooked food is not available to urbanites, both men and women are suffering from bad food. They are eating processed, pre-cooked and junk food more than ever before.
Cooking for oneself is less efficient and seems like a chore than cooking for a family, which takes a similar amount of time. This division of labor is anathema to a modern woman. In many cases, she wants to be financially independent and therefore has no time or energy left to cook nourishing meals for her family.
You might ask, why should a woman cook, and not a man? What is so special about cooking? Cooking at a large scale is indeed done overwhelmingly by men: in restaurants, for special occasions, for large gatherings. Women have traditionally cooked for their families because they were home, they felt good at providing this valuable service of nourishment and health to their families, and because it requires a certain attention to detail to prepare food for one’s family. An old man might require easy-to-digest food, an infant might need a liquid diet, a growing boy and girl needs a certain diet. While men did the work of providing for their families, it was the women who ensured that their families remained healthy and well-nourished.
In modern times, men are still held responsible for providing for their families, but women are no longer expected to cook (at least that’s what feminists will tell you). Working women and single mothers come home tired after work and have no energy left for cooking. Women didn’t need to work outside home, but these days a single earning household struggles to make ends meet. This is due to lowered wages (in which feminism has been a big factor because it has enlarged the workforce thus depressing the wages).
Not eating home-cooked meals means people are picking up food on the go, eating frozen dinners, gobbing on “comfort food” like french fries, cakes and ice-cream etc.
The growth of sedentary occupations is another big factor in this obesity epidemic, but as any diet expert or personal trainer will tell you, staying healthy and fit depends far more on diet than on exercise.
Feminism has made a good diet unavailable to the vast majority of urban population, and thus we see both men and women more and more unhealthy, struggling against the effects of a bad diet, and growing fatter and fatter.
If you are a single man, learn to cook some efficient and healthy meals at home. If you don’t have a woman to cook for you, don’t despair and don’t depend on processed food. Eat well, exercise and rest well. It is not the same as having food with your family, but in these abnormal times, one has to take care of oneself.
