Caesar Salad with a side of Feminism

I’ve been trying to convince my Israeli co-workers that a true Caesar Salad has Romaine lettuce in it. This is after attempting to educate the manager of the restaurant I ordered from: “I have a plastic bowl full of butter lettuce, four tomatoes, and a side of Caesar dressing” I have my co-worker explain to him in Hebrew. “I didn’t pay 40 Shekels for butter lettuce Salad, I paid 40 Shekels for a C-A-E-S-A-R Salad.

Romaine Lettuce.

Romaine Lettuce.

You cannot give a customer Butter lettuce and four tomatoes and charge them an a**load for it.
It’s like advertising Pepperoni Pizza without the Pepperoni. Cottage Cheese without any Cottage. Peanut Butter Reese’s with no Peanut Butter. Dark chocolate that is white. Makes no sense.
They could have advertised it as “regular sh*t salad with Caesar dressing”. or perhaps the”5 Shekel salad that we falsely advertise and charge 40.”
Secondly, I don’t like the word Feminist. “I am a feminist” blah blah blah. “Independent woman” is fine, but the actually title of Feminist rings a dull thud in the Ginrod’s earlobes. I think of that word and I think of body odor. Feminist. Body odor. Feminist body. Feminist Odor. Smoulder Smoulder, charcoals on a grill. There’s a Barbecue tomorrow. I didn’t know being a responsible female with principles needs a name. The connotation of the word makes it seem so ugly.
At this moment, I could start a small revolution from the anger that builds between what Israeli’s think of as a Caesar Salad and women that coin themselves openly as a feminist. Calling yourself a feminist doesn’t change the world at all, but your name will. I’d much rather work on making a name for myself than resorting to titles.
