I believe it's a choice. It is not set in stone that every woman must know how to cook. It is definitely not a pre-requisite in order to be considered a woman. It wouldn't hurt to know how to prepare your own meals, however, I won't be the one to beat anyone over the head with a stick if they choose not to. Fathers or men in general are spending more time in the kitchen compared to the last century and I believe it does nothing to emasculate a man. Our society is ever changing and so are the traditional roles once ascribed to women. Advancements in food preparation has made it easier and faster to get a meal and while it may not be the healthiest of choices, it is an alternative that peoaple have taken advantage of.
