About how now it is cool and trendy for women to order steak on dates, because it shows they are down to earth. (Beware salad eaters; you register as high-maintenence and finicky.)
"In an earlier era, conventional dating wisdom for women was to eat something at home alone before a date, and then in company order a light dinner to portray oneself as dainty and ladylike. For some women, that is still the practice."
Even Scarlett O'Hara thought that eating before a meal was dumb idea, and that was in 1861.
I'm not even offended it by the sexism as much as I'm offended by the shoddy journalism.
