Slate´s Amanda Marcotte Slams
´Tyranny´ of the ´Home-Cooked Meal´

Newsbusters, by Matthew Balan

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 9/4/2014 8:12:24 AM

Ultra-left-wing blogger Amanda Marcotte targeted an apparent societal "tyranny" in a Wednesday item for Slate: the "burden" that the "home-cooked meal" places on women in particular. Marcotte played up a recent study by a feminist professor and her two colleagues that underlined that "while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food...the stress that cooking puts on people, particularly women, may not be worth the trade-off." The writer played up how men are supposedly a large part of this "tyranny" on "middle-class working mothers:" ...[W]omen find that their very own families present a major obstacle to their desire to provide

Comments:
I (a man) cook dinner for a family of five almost every night... because it relaxes me after a hard day´s work. This chick just wants somebody to take her out. Is there a tyranny? Yes,tyranny of the stupid. Somebody give this idiot a frying pan and show her how it works.

I must admit targeting home food preparation never crossed my mind but such thinking is right in line with all things leftist. I suppose cooking in your own kitchen would be ok if you´re feeding the village.

Cook at home! Put fast food workers practicing civil disobedience for more money out of work . I do all the cooking as my wife has Parkinson´s . We eat well, healthily, and it is not that hard nor time consuming.

I am amazed at how quickly we lost the tradition of the family meal. With crazy schedules of the kids and the parents, it is rare that a family sits down and eats together.
Which really is too bad because it´s not just about the food.

My husband is retired. I´m not. He does virtually all of the housework without complaint (well, at least no more than I complained when I was doing it!).

In fact, he´s always done the brunt of the cleaning (vacuum especially).

I suspect that when I retire, he will semi-retire and we´ll work out a division. As long as he keeps the vacuuming and laundry, I´ll probably be happy.

Point is, when both people work, they generally work out a division of labor that doesn´t make cooking a "tyranny."

I´m sure there are exceptions, and this gal in the article is thinking more of single moms than of couples.

Even then, when the kids are old enough, teach them to help or even to do some of the cooking, regardless of their sex. All men should know how to cook (our son is excellent).

Marcotte and the "researchers" are sexist ninnies. They´ve assumed that it the mother doing all the cooking and doing it alone. In the real world, men do cook. And even more shocking than that, children have been known to help with the cooking, that´s how they learn.

This is a really silly conversation. I´m in Texas and there are a lot of men who cook down here - grilling is their long suite. And I like to cook -- usually I cook on weekends and freeze some in order to take to work the next week. It can be as complicated or as simple as you make it. But if you´ve got kids, bring them up eating right and they´ll take care of themselves better as they grow up.

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really.

Remember When ESPN Was About Sports?

September should be a great time of year for sports fans. Baseball pennant races getting dramatic. College football already in top form. NFL finally on every channel every other day of the week. And, of course, Fantasy Football in full swing. It should be a time when Xs and Os are over analyzed and team passions are on full display. Instead, this weekend was all about substance abuse, spanking, and domestic abuse. And ESPN is loving it. Because addressing these weighty topics makes them feel so very important. NFL analyst (and former NFL wide receiver) Cris Carter was nearly in tears giving us a

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.

Adrian Peterson turned himself in early Saturday morning, FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer reported , after authorities in Texas issued an arrest warrant for the star Minnesota Vikings running back on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. Peterson surrendered to authorities in Montgomery County and was released on a $21,000 bond, according to Glazer. However, Peterson has been benched for Sunday’s game against New England. Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, said that the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank one of his sons, whose age was not disclosed but was widely

Sessions, a Republican who is known for his fierce opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants, railed on the Senate floor against Zuckerberg and other Democrats backing executive action by the president and legislation authored by the Gang of Eight that would increase the number of guest worker permits. ´The “masters of the universe” are very fond of open borders as long as these open borders don’t extend to their gated compounds and

Maher: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it.

Former Republican Florida governor Jeb Bush will hit Illinois, Florida and Michigan in a tour of GOP campaign events over the next several weeks. As the Washington Examiner detailed, Bush will make three high-profile appearances this month and next: a campaign stop with Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner in Chicago on September 18; a September 23 fundraiser in Florida for five competitive Republican Senate candidates including hawkish Arkansas prospect Tom Cotton; and an up to $5,000 per head fundraising gala for Michigan governor Tom Snyder in October.

It’s a tough time to be a concerned citizen. The truth of the matter is, the job has always been messy. But it’s way worse when the subject is foreign policy. We gathered around our TVs and computers and peered at our smartphones Wednesday night to hear President Obama explain his plan for combating ISIS, even though we have pretty much lost faith in plans when it comes to the United States involvement in the Middle East. He sounded very strong. And, really, that’s something. We’d have been happy to come away just saying something like “he appeared to believe he’s on the

Baltimore Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti wrote a letter to the team´s fans and sponsors Tuesday, addressing the team´s handling of the Ray Rice situation and stating that the Ravens could have handled things differently. "First, let us say that we did not do all we should have done and no amount of explanation can remedy that," Bisciotti wrote in the letter, which was posted on the team´s website. Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Rice, were involved in a Feb. 15 altercation in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa pledged Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s top Obamacare official must testify to Congress about a July security breach at HealthCare.gov. The federal Obamacare website was hacked into in July, The Wall Street Journal first reported Thursday. No personal consumer information was extracted from HealthCare.gov, but the “malicious attack” inserted malware into a weak part of the website that will help the hackers to attack other websites. Now, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Obamacare agency the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to finally testify before Congress

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
