While I’m still on the subject of weight loss, I am eating yogurt. I mentioned this to a friend of mine, and he replied that he was not a big fan of yogurt. This did not surprise me. After all, as Sarah Haskins put it, yogurt is the “official food of women.” (Watch the Target Women yogurt episode now!) As far as gendered food goes, yogurt takes the cake for being marketed exclusively to women, going on the assumption that all women are on a diet. It’s no wonder my male friend isn’t a “big fan” of a girlie diet food like yogurt.
Then I remembered the recent news story about Butch Cupcakes for men, and for a split second I had a wonderful idea! I could capitalize on oppressive gender constructs and market “butch” yogurt to men–Man Yogurt!
Okay, so maybe there’s a reason no one has tried to butch up yogurt for men. I’m not sure I can finish my lunch now.
