One of the most sexist aspects of modern weddings just might be...the cake toppers? Sure, there are the standard bride and groom (or bride and bride, or groom and groom) standing next to each other in a neutral pose. But when you start sifting through the more novelty options, they quickly turn old school sexist. So many grooms hoisting brides above their heads like prizes and grooms-as-superheroes standing next to damsels-no-longer-in-distress brides! And then there are the awful ball and chain-themed ones, the bride gone fishing for a husband ones, and even the nagging bride dragging her (possibly drunk?) groom away from Call of Duty.
So what about novelty "feminist" cake topper options? Though it admittedly took some digging, there are some out there that depict brides as more than shrewish housewives-to-be and sex objects. Because there's no sense in ruining perfectly good cake!
