i want to point out that no one is calling zeb saying ‘pretty girls’ sexist. we’re calling the ‘father/son out fishing and mother/daughter learning to cook’ thing sexist, and the fact that some people didn’t actually cotton onto that is all the more hilarious and point proving.
it’s not like he said that’s the required american life
he was just saying that it’s a unique slice of americana
which it is
the boys going out and catching the fish that the girls then prepare
valuing that doesn’t make you sexist, thinking of it as a requirement does
i took it as more a reference to early america when that sort of separation that resulted in women staying home was a necessity ‘cause dudes are more expendable in dangerous climates but whatevs
