Male Feminist Writes That He Hates to Grill Because it’s so ‘Conventionally Masculine’

Move over, Pajama Boy. There’s a new progressive vying for the title of America’s most pathetic and emasculated male.

A writer named Jacob Brogan recently penned this column for Slate:

Grillax, Bro

I’m a feminist. I’m a dude. And I hate that I love to grill.

hate how much I love to grill. It’s not that I’m inclined to vegetarianism or that I otherwise object to the practice itself. But I’m uncomfortable with the pleasure I take in something so conventionally masculine. Looming over the coals, tongs in hand, I feel estranged from myself, recast in the role of suburban dad. At such moments, I get the sense that I’ve fallen into a societal trap, one that reaffirms gender roles I’ve spent years trying to undo. The whole business feels retrograde, a relic of some earlier, less inclusive era.

I take food prep a little too seriously, curtly brushing others out of the way when I step up to the kitchen counter. In my online dating days, I tried to spin this fault as a feature, describing myself as “a finicky, meticulous cook.” On reflection, I’m probably just kind of a jerk, but when I’m grilling I worry that I’ve become something even worse. Am I shoving others out of the way because it makes me feel like a man? Have I become some sort of monster?

The article has to be read to be believed.

It has been reported on more than one occasion that the cooking and consumption of meat aided the evolution of human beings.

Why do progressives hate science?
