I am trying to do a outline but cant find the topic or thesis in (This question expresses a commonly held (by women) negative stereotype about guys of the male gender, which is that they cannot find things around the house, especially things in the kitchen. Many women believe that if you want to hide something from a man, all you have to do is put it in plain sight in the refrigerator, and he will never, ever find it, as evidenced by the fact that a man can open a refrigerator containing 463 pounds of assorted meats, poultry, cold cuts, condiments, vegetables, frozen dinners, snack foods, desserts, etc., and ask, with no irony whatsoever, ``Do we have anything to eat?'') where is the introduction and thesis

  1. Are you calling this the whole introduction?

    This question expresses a commonly held (by women) negative stereotype about guys of the male gender, which is that they cannot find things around the house, especially things in the kitchen. Many women believe that if you want to hide something from a man, all you have to do is put it in plain sight in the refrigerator, and he will never, ever find it, as evidenced by the fact that a man can open a refrigerator containing 463 pounds of assorted meats, poultry, cold cuts, condiments, vegetables, frozen dinners, snack foods, desserts, etc., and ask, with no irony whatsoever, "Do we have anything to eat?"

    The first sentence is the most general, and is the only one that comes close to a thesis statement. The other sentences contain details. However, to me, this is not an introduction for a whole essay or paper. It could be one of the interior (body) paragraphs, but it doesn't fit the pattern of an introduction.

  2. ... much of this "paragraph" has been plagiarized -- or else you copied it from somewhere without giving its source. That's plagiarism ... not a good idea.
