Being Alone, Dude, and Food: Professor: Wings-Eating Show Hot Ones Is Problematic for Women By KATHERINE TIMPF July 12, 2018 6:33 PM oo O O O Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast) A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor. ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies." In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it? Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity." In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten in small portions with restraint." The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do. <p><a href="https://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/175942345598/alaija-mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://alaija.tumblr.com/post/175942082248/mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who" class="tumblr_blog">alaija</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://mogai-watch.tumblr.com/post/175941005491/oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who-eats-hella-spicy" class="tumblr_blog">mogai-watch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Oh<br/> My<br/> God.<br/> Stop.<br/> -A woman who eats hella spicy wings and doesn’t appreciate this kind of nonsense “academia” getting funded while departments contributing more than virtue-signaling and divisive dreck are chronically under-funded.</p></blockquote> <p>Some brave woman just needs to smash the piquant ceiling!!!</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Or just have a Thai woman go on there…</p> </blockquote> <p>Go easy on them, feminists ran out of things to be plausibly outraged about in around 1982.

 A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised
 the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor.
 ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot
 Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies."
 In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat
 increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show
 couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it?
 Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular
 food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show
 "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated
 performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity."
 In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy
 foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so
 far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender
 binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten
 in small portions with restraint."
 The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed
 to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part
 of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing
 danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to
 discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these
 topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity
 persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do.
