to cook outdoors and women to cook indoors. To help women fulfill expanded postwar notions of wife, patriot and mother, American women were offered more assistance in the kitchen—but not by their husbands. Food corporations and magazine publishers took on cooking instruction and joined other consumer messages that prescribed strong domestic roles for women in second half of the twentieth century. An increasing number of commercial experts set standards and guidelines for the kitchen. A stamp of authority was given to representatives of various institutions and

has little collective memory about the broad representation of homegirls in the culture. Their identification also points to the formidability of the freak in the hip hop imaginary and in the minds of black women and girls today. The booty connects the hip hop freak to the controlling image of the jezebel. Epitomized by nineteenth century iconography of the South African performer Saartjie Baartman, dubiously dubbed the Hottentot Venus, the buttocks of African women have come to represent exotic beauty and primitive sexuality. 28 In her introduction to Black Venus

race. This is evident in a statement by a then-prominent European physician who said, Black women’s “animal-like sexual appetite went so far as to lead black women to copulate with apes” (qtd. in Gilman, 1985, p. 212). These attitudes persist, albeit more covertly. For example, a contemporary book on tort law discusses workplace harassment of an African American woman in which coworkers “engaged in offensive behavior and name calling that traded on centuries-old negative images of Blacks as animals, monkeys, and filthy creatures” (Chamallas & Wriggins, 2010, p. 26

Her songs propose that class performance is available to all who choose to ameliorate themselves, but that financial wealth alone will not do it. Instead, Countess LuAnn suggests that one must develop elegance and flair in concurrence with the notion that individual initiative and performance are essential in the neoliberal economy. Thus, Countess LuAnn joins a long list of women in American history who promoted normative constructions of propriety and status, from writers such as Catharine Beecher (1800

gender and sexual difference reflect the limits of the magazine’s carnival approach. My intention is not to ignore the subject of racial diversity, especially since the 2017 RBFF report indicates that around 11% of fly fishers are Hispanic, 10% are African-American, and slightly more than 5% are Asian. 55 These and other racial minorities are, however, almost entirely absent from S.C.O.F.’s pages, so that the publication’s whiteness is constituted less by explicit dominance over racial others than by the absence of race as a basis for difference. This problem is not
