Riddhi Shah wrote about food and gender yesterday in Salon, and though the article comes at the issue from an interesting angle initially (how do we assign gender to foods?), it ultimately doesn’t tell us anything we haven’t heard before: Our relationship to food has some biological underpinnings, but it’s also tremendously influenced by our culture. And the U.S. has the luxury of being the most culturally (i.e., psychologically) invested in, and screwed up about, food.
