As Americans across the country prepare to take their extra $0.16 and fire up their grills for the Fourth of July, Crooked Media podcaster and Daily Beast contributor Erin Gloria Ryan has some food for thought:
grilling is very important because it gives men something to stand around, look at, and talk about in a social situation where they'd otherwise have to ask people questions about themselves and then listen to the answers to those questions

Wow, did she nail it or what?
The answer, of course, is “what.” More specifically, “what the hell.” Is this just another one of her, as she mentions in her bio, “very bad statements on Twitter”?
no one wants that

i can't imagine why someone would try to escape conversation with you.

Yeah, real head-scratcher, that one.
Women absolutely fuming that men don't need a 9 hour Pinterest brainstorming session and structured conversational starters to have an enjoyable social setting.

Me: I usually grill only when it's super-hot out and wife says, "No way am I firing up the stove or oven tonight."
Erin: Grilling is all about men and men's needs. https://t.co/hAhLS6pGqm

Erin, thank you. If I didn't grill, I'd never realize how awful I am.

And way to erase women grillers, Erin. So sexist.
How about a grilled cheese?
What a weird way to say that men at social events prepare the food and talk about varied and important stuff rather than standing around in the kitchen gossiping about the people in the other room. https://t.co/vgMJTvYMqn
