Wow.
I'm kind of speechless at the idea of bacon being a "common man's" food and tofu as being "privileged."

Must pass this on to the sociology crowd...

tanita, it's always risky trying to explain (someone's idea of) humor, but here goes:

For many people who grew up as meat-eaters tofu is "not real food" and something to be ridiculed along with a whole category of people associated with that kind of thing.

Remember the phrase "real men don't eat quiche"?

I don't think it's so much about resentment towards privileged classes -- more like resentment at being told that what tastes good to you and has been good enough all your life is not what you should be eating.
