  • Cooking is an ability traditionally attributed to women, but nowadays it is advertised for everyone like there are maaany cooking shows with men cooking and ik many guy friends who like cooking, some are chef who are helping me and I'm really grateful to them!
    Maybe only older generations still have the traditional thinking of cooking 🍳👩

  • Don't take it personally, but if a man can't cook , he is not a man. It's a skill it has nothing to do with genders. Knowing how to cook a significant meal is knowledge, now days you have to know all the allergies if you work at any restaurant that's knowledge it has nothing to do with if you were a male or a female.

    • You’re views are skewed, a man is a man you’re not qualified to change the definition sorry not sorry... cooking is a skill that all should know but not knowing a skill whatever it may be doesn’t make you less of a person. Thinking it does makes you less of one though.

  • I voted wrong. I meant to say it's not strictly a feminine trait. Actually I find it incredibly sexy when a man knows how to cook and enjoys it.
    Kind of off topic of the question but I am old fashioned in some ways. I do believe that if a woman isn't working as much or at all she should be the main cook unless her husband/boyfriend wants to.

  • No, I consider it to be a trait requiring skill. Knowing you way around a kitchen means knowing what pot to use for what dish, how to chop each item, what knife/utensil to use, what heat to cook on, it's something you learn and to be good at it is an accomplishment :)

    Lady or man should know how.

  • Cooking is like a taste you know? I don't know If that makes sense but I mean that you either like cooking something or not. It doesn't mean that because I'm a girl I enjoy cooking (I do actually but that's not the point😂)
    So no i definitely don't believe that it is a feminine trait. Everyone who likes cooking has like the right to cook. There are a lot of men that are chefs and it used to be considered a feminine trait just because women used to do all the housework not for any other reason

    • no of course men can be in the kitchen as well. but men are men and women are women. we are not supposed to be the same and will never be the same. men are naturally physically and emotionally stronger than women. We are logical whereas women are more emotional.

  • Cooking is a basic skill that every adult should possess. Even if a man works outside the home and the woman doesn't, there will still be times when the woman is unable to prepare a meal and the man needs to do it.

    If both partners are working full-time, then it's only fair to divide household tasks like cooking.

  • Cooking is an activity, not a trait. It's traditionally female oriented, likely because the men traditionally engaged in more physical activities like hunting or farming while women prepped and cooked.

    However, the action of cooking is itself not feminine, and with changing technology and society, men are doing it more.

    Also, consider professional chefs have traditionally been men.

  • The culinary arts is a profession dominated by men.
    Men have seen a ton of success in this field.
    Kinda funny right? You get the PC and feminist crowd complaining about female representation in male dominated careers like engineering but neglect to look at the culinary arts.
    Maybe women ought to get back in the kitchen and fire up those stoves?

    I dunno, I was told this a while ago so I might be outdated with my info here but it was funny none the less. LOL

  • cooking is a basic survival technique that not only women should master...

    i mean creating something appealing to sustain yourself is not in any way feminine. it's a supportive trait that is actually pretty manly if you associate it with the provider position a man has in this society.

  • Considering the top paid chefs are men, the majority of Michelin restaurant owners are men, and that most chefs are typically men no I do not consider it a feminine trait. Baking, however, probably is because I associate coffee shops and pastries with women. Cooking is a masculine trait, often requiring strength. Kitchens, especially high and ones, can be very violent.
