Is your pantry clean and organized? According to Dr. Jenna Drenten, an associate professor of marketing at Loyola University of Chicago, that’s “classist, racist and sexist,” the New York Post reported on Thursday.
According to the report:
If you ditched cereal boxes for uniform glass containers and opted for Plexiglas storage bins in your fridge, you may be engaging in classist, racist and sexist behaviors, one Chicago professor contends.
Dr. Jenna Drenten, an associate professor of marketing at Loyola University, argued Tuesday that the recent obsession with organizing kitchen and pantry spaces — a TikTok trend she dubbed “pantry porn” — is pushing societal standards that the average American cannot keep up with while tricking consumers into spending more money.
The “new minimalism” approach is just a thinly veiled excuse to entice people to buy more items — containers, labels and storage space — that give off the decluttered appearance of simple living, Drenten wrote for the Conversation.
“Storing spices in coordinated glass jars and color-coordinating dozens of sprinkles containers may seem trivial. But tidiness is tangled up with status, and messiness is loaded with assumptions about personal responsibility and respectability,” the professor stated.
“Cleanliness has historically been used as a cultural gatekeeping mechanism to reinforce status distinctions based on a vague understanding of ‘niceness’: nice people, with nice yards, in nice houses, make for nice neighborhoods.
“What lies beneath the surface of this anti-messiness, pro-niceness stance is a history of classist, racist and sexist social structures. In my research, influencers who produce pantry porn are predominantly white women who demonstrate what it looks like to maintain a “nice” home by creating a new status symbol: the perfectly organized, fully stocked pantry,” Drenton wrote.
Of course. Because being clean and organized is racist. Along with everything else.
“Pantry porn, as a status symbol, relies on the promise of making daily domestic work easier. But if women are largely responsible for the work required to maintain the perfectly organized pantry, it’s critical to ask: easier for whom?” Drenten added.
The reaction on social media? Do you really need to ask?
Organizing your pantry is now racist and sexist. And obviously transphobic because some people’s lives are just a mess and being organized makes other people look bad. pic.twitter.com/YnVgS96xFI

They’ve been a laughing stock for a long time, but this just reinforces the notion.
Just when we thought liberals could not possibly be any crazier….now organized pantries are rooted in ‘racist and sexist’ social structures. Apparently a pantry is supposed to be an organized crap heap. pic.twitter.com/iwWqnMQdQH

FYI: If you have a neat pantry, you’re a racist and a sexist. 🤷♀️
PS-My pantry is so neat and organized that I must be one of those very special super-duper racist/sexist people. Another win for me! pic.twitter.com/bfPiAHkjH0

Hmmm. According to the new Church of Wokeness, they would have to be branded as white supremacists…
One person responded to Drenton’s tweet with this:
My black bf’s pantry is clean and organized. Your saying he’s a racist seeking affirmation? When you fill your article with words and phrases like “perhaps” “TikTok research” and “social pressure” it makes this purely an opinion piece based on you’re own feelings of inadequacy.

If nothing else, Drenton just proved the notion that liberalism is a mental disorder, and woke people really are stupid.
