That's What Wives are For

And here I thought a wife was a heteronormative life partner with whom a husband shares responsibilities.

Silly me-- she's just an accessory. 

In fact, she might as well be an appliance.


  1. This advertisement must be from the same men that think women are just supposed to be slutty and be mens' personal slaves. The odd thing is that the gender role of cooking is forced on women, but men make up the majority of chefs. I think there are plenty of women chefs out there but that they don't get the same respect and face time as men. It's pretty rude.

  2. Cooking becomes masculine once it's connected to a paycheck and a hierarchical position of power. Great point!
