A teenage girl, Riley Anne, returns home from school, feeling a bit bummed out. She meets her step-mother, Serene Siren, in the kitchen, and they exchange pleasantries. It's clear from their affectionate interactions that they are close, and Serene can tell something is bothering Riley. Although it takes some probing, it's revealed that Riley has a sexist teacher for home ec, who insisted that the students learn how to cook for their future husbands.
Serene is livid, gushing about how amazing it is that women are so independent today. They don't need any man, and they certainly don't need to cook for one! Plus, what if some of the girls are lesbians? Or pansexuals? Or polyamorous?
