Guy gets roasted for asking what ‘female’ can cook a basic breakfast
A dude on Twitter user is getting roasted over a tweet that questions the capabilities of women to make a very simple breakfast.
The user, @djseanblaze601, asked Twitter, “what female can cook like that?” accompanied by two shrugging emoji and a photo of an apparently home-cooked breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, french toast, and cinnamon rolls.
The answer to his question? Literally everyone.
Responders on Twitter pointed out that the meal pictured is extremely easy to make, and that basic breakfast food is hardly considered cooking.
A can of cinnamon rolls? Frozen French toast sticks, a slice of cheese on top of eggs? Can’t you cook this for your damn self? 😂 https://t.co/ullqWda51a

Others critiqued the meal itself. More than anything, people were mad that the eggs appeared to be blanketed with a slice of cheese.
the american cheese on those eggs has me triggered https://t.co/v5PicrrFR6

Many also took issue with @djseanblaze601’s use of the word “female,” as part of a larger debate on whether the use of the word is offensive or not. As Kara Brown wrote for Jezebel, addressing women as “females” can be dehumanizing and is often “used to imply inferiority or contempt.”
On the bright side, if @djseanblaze601 is really just looking for a partner to cook him breakfast, it shouldn’t be that hard to find one. He just might want to eat some fruits and vegetables, too.
