“Lobster rolls not gender roles”

"Lobster rolls not gender rolls” is a gender saying that has been printed on many images. “Lobster rolls not gender roles” was posted on Twitter by F. Murray Parma Ham on May 29, 2015. “Lobstah rolls, not gender roles” was on a women’s march sign in Boston, Massachusetts, in January 2017.

Similar gender sayings include “Cinnamon rolls not gender roles,” “Paratha rolls not gender roles,” “Pizza rolls not gender roles” and “Sushi rolls not gender roles.”

... Lobstah rolls, not gender roles ...
