Clean pantries are ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’: Loyola marketing scholar | The College Fix
Clean pantries and tidy houses have “racist,” “sexist” and “classist” roots according to a marketing professor at Loyola University-Chicago.
Professor Jenna Drenten recently criticized a social media trend of users posting videos showing off different ways to organize pantries. Drenten wrote that these video creators, “predominantly white women,” have created “a new status symbol” to replace the old one of “nice houses,” “nice yards” and “nice neighborhoods.”
Drenten’s scholarly pursuits include papers on “Video Gaming as a Gendered Pursuit” and “More Gamer, Less Girl: Gendered Boundaries, Tokenism, and the Cultural Persistence of Masculine Dominance.”
A quick inspection of our pantry would prove evidently that neither LWJ nor I are racist or sexist. Indeed, by this standard we're probably anti-racist and anti-sexist.
I'm guessing that Jenna Drenten identifies as a cretin.
