Food!

I confess that I am a woman who likes to eat. Every time I go out for a bite with a girlfriend, first they'll tell me how hungry they are, then, when they get their food, will take two dainty bites and get the rest to go. Meanwhile, I scarf down my food and finish my plate. I've gone to restaurants where I'd just be starting my meal and the waitstaff will come over and ask if I was done and wanted it wrapped to go, it's weird. I don't know if women are conditioned to act this way, like they can't wait to get home and finish their meal away from judgy eyes. Screw what people think, life is short, get whatever pleasure you can out of it. (And yes, I know it's covid, only with people in my bubble and outdoor patios if possible)

... remember my youth living down by Stanley park going to pork belly beer house. I think you'll find this is mostly a cultural behavior the women who were there seem to be just fine but then the city closed it down because I don't know he didn't have the right permit or something just disgusting behavior this was one of Vancouver's best restaurants.

In Tokyo and Paris it's not uncommon for woman to share a meal and a desert.

False dichotomy

Mar 25, 2021 at 2:38pm

This sounds like those classic 'cool girl I've internalized misogyny' comments. "I'm not like other girls who like to wear pink, wear makeup, and eat like a bird"....What is the point of this comment other than to passive aggressively tear down other women who just happen to be different than you? Do whatever the heck you want and let other people decide to do whatever the heck they want.

I eat every speck on my plate, always. I feel bad for people that care about stuff like that. Nobody is even looking or cares.

I hate this topic

...because it’s so doused in gender role bullshit. I sat beside a woman at work who used to eat one English cucumber for lunch. What is that, 50 calories? She would admire my “thin wrists” to me and it was the first time I ever knew I had wrists that women envy. The Marketing Director eats leaves for lunch, no dressing. I can not stand this kind of disordered eating. FUCKING EAT FOOD!! I’m a woman, I eat all the time because I’m burning calories every day chasing my kid, hiking, biking, lugging groceries, walking with friends etc. Colleagues at multiple workplaces say to me: “You eat a lot.”, “You eat all day.“ YEAH, I eat because it’s my fuel to get through busy, active days. I will never eat daintily and eat leaves for lunch. 100% not ashamed or shy to eat steak, fettuccini Alfredo, in front of anyone. Women need to get over their disordered eating if they’re gonna achieve anything great in their lives. Full stop, rant end. So OP, glad to hear you eat like a normal human being. Women, let’s get on with our lives and free ourselves of this food control BS.

I will eat a whole 3 courses while my friends also get doggy bags. I dont care if its not considered lady like. I'm happy I can afford good food and going to finish that food I paid for. The rest of you can watch me fill my gluttonous belly!

Sometimes it's just our different appetites

Most of the time, I truly can't finish a full meal in a restaurant, as the portions are often way too big for me. But I do always finish eating whatever I pack up and take home. It's great, like another full meal ready for later or the next day.
Then I have certain women friends who love to share a plate with me when we go out (went out, I should say), but others, no way.

This makes little sense.

I married a beauty queen, and she stuffs her face like she's a wolf.
