Annisa chef Anita Lo is on Eatocracy discussing female chefs, gender roles, and the prevalence of lesbians among the female chef population:
The ratio of gay-to-straight executive female chefs is much higher than amongst the general population. The Kinsey Report states that about 10 percent of the general population is gay. I think that ratio is higher among female executive chefs and apparently, in the WNBA as well. But on a more serious note, this is perhaps related to my first statement and begs the question: are gay women less bound by societal norms and therefore get further in this field?The first statement she's referencing there is about how gender is a social construction. Next question: how does this relate to the number of male gays on the premiere of last night's Top Chef Just Desserts?
