Wow...

Not to start working my (occasionally raging) feminism into the ever-expanding list of non-food-related content over here, but I saw this at Sociological Images and wanted to share. It's hard to believe this is from 1970 (I might have been less surprised by 1950's or earlier), but it is apparently a real page from a book entitled "I'm Glad I'm a Boy! I'm Glad I'm a Girl!" (Click to see larger image.)
I think my favorite is "Boys can eat. Girls can cook." I would be glad to be a boy, too, I guess...

I don't understand. I thought it was my job as a woman to break thinks so that as a man Guy can fix them.

This totally reminds me of Christmas church service. "And what do Daddies do? And what do Mommies do?" I'm still glad that kid totally ruined the story by saying that her Daddy "cooks". ! :)
