Why do professional women take pride in the fact that "they don't know how to cook?"
I hear female news reporters say "Oh, I don't even know how to boil water."
What makes them think people will respect them more if they can't cook?
It's like saying "I don't know First Aid, I can't even put on a band-aid."
It's not a crime to know First Aid or how to cook, I think it is admitting ignorance.
Maybe they are trying to say"don't expect me to invite you over for dinner."
I wonder if they have a coffee maker, a microwave and a toaster! If not I'm not spending the night. I know a lot of New Yorkers say "I don't know how to drive" it's just means they take the sub way or hail a taxi. Even the ones that do drive on Florida Streets don't impress me much but that another story. But if you do drive you should know how to replace a spare tire or have a CCW permit or know martial arts.
