People are getting into an uproar over this? Almost everybody loves their "mom's homestyle cooking." If you can't brand your products this way, then the "woke disease" has crept into Japan much deeper than I imagined.

Should we not be promoting two-parent homes where the children are nurtured by their mother??? And taught home upkeep and protection by their father???

Better still, two-parent homes where the children are nurtured by both parents and taught home upkeep by both parents.

Plus being taught all kinds of other intellectual, physical and social skills by both parents.

It's called balance.
