Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about your gender, race, or creed. All he cares about is that you can cook.
The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish.

I remember watching an episode of Kitchen Nightmares where this Black woman ran a Jamaican restaurant. It came out that this woman had a lot on her plate that she felt she had to deal with all by herself. There was a lot riding on the success of the restaurant, and she didn’t have a support system. What surprised me was how he did not force her into this Strong Black Woman role. He made it clear that she needed people around her who could truly help her with the burdens she had instead of adding to them. It was obvious from that episode was that what she needed was someone who could show her the real potential of her restaurant and how to maintain that.
But I also love how he has no fucks to give for silver spoon motherfuckers who just opened a restaurant because they thought it would be cool and fun then proceed to act like nobody needs to know anything about food or business to have a successful restaurant.
Besides this now, my favorite Gordon Ramsey has heart moments was on Hell’s Kitchen, where the Lady who cooked at Waffle House, although she was eliminated, he was so impressed with her, he decided to help pay for formal cooking lessons for her. Because he was like, “You’re in here out cooking all these so called chefs, all you need is more training.”
I love it, they were trying to shit on this black woman because LOL ONLY WAFFLE HOUSE
Gordon Ramsey be knowing
I remember seeing an episode of some show where he was turning failing restaurants around, and it was run by a husband and wife team. The husband was very snappy and short with everyone and was clearly upset at Mr Ramsay for coming in and “telling him how to do his job”. I distinctly remember the wife seeking him out to apologise for “not making her husband behave” and he was totally honest with her, telling her that she was doing fine and her husband wasn’t supporting her. That she shouldn’t be afraid to blame him for his mistakes rather than feeling like she had to be personally responsible for them all, but that he could understand why she’d feel that way when she had no support from her staff. I actually have a reasonable amount of respect for him. He doesn’t take shit in any direction.
Ah yes, I think I saw that one (Kitchen Nightmares is the name of the show, in case you wanted to know). I find his manner of speaking in Hell’s Kitchen to be grating and triggery for me - too much for me to watch with any regularity. But yeah, I think he’s often fabulous and that’s unexpected because he’s quite kind and understanding underneath it all.
I was just like, do you hear how easy it is to describe the pie-in sensory terms-to someone who can’t see it?
Ableism says PWD’s needs are somehow more, too much to reasonably expect, and use this as an excuse to exclude us, to act like well it’s unreasonable to expect accommodations. If people just *thought* for two damn seconds, they’d see that they’re so used to this idea, they regurgitate ableist attitudes automatically.
This reminds me of a professor from my work (Disability Services at a college) who actually walked into the DSO and threw a fit because she ~~had no clue~~ how to inform a blind student of the corrections to his paper that she’d written ON the paper.
When told she could simply write him an email, she threw another fit.
Professors write sighted students emails probably at least a dozen times on an average day. But for *some* reason, it was only “too much to ask” when she had to write one to a blind student.
