I am very sorry to inform you all that this is a real thing in the world.
The Farrels explain why a man is like a waffle (each element of his life is in a separate box) and a woman is like spaghetti (everything in her life touches everything else). End–of–chapter questions and exercises make this unique and fun look at the different ways men and women regard life a terrific tool for not only marriage, but also for a reader’s relationships at work, at home, at church, and with friends.
Why can’t I be a fucking waffle?
Wow. I wonder if my dad got this from the same source. He describes it as buckets vs. compartments.
I guess my bucket/spaghetti emotions don’t count as a strike against the stereotype since I’m genderqueer but I found the idea well beyond insulting.
