Is this really such a masculine meal?

There needs to be some kind of meeting about which foods align with which genders. Otherwise, the “unhealthy food = guy food” misconception will continue, to the detriment of all. For example: that Burger King spot from last year (which is still running), which shows a parade of men marching down the street, demanding to be fed like men. Instead of quiche and tofu, they suggest the new Texas Double Whopper, possibly the least masculine foodstuff this side of the Vienna sausage. Not only is its purported size obvious compensation, it falls short of the hype. What you get is two slabs of thin, flaccid beef and, if you’re me, near-volcanic indigestion. If that’s manly, then you can wrap me in a gamcha right now.
