Not sure why Saikano was on here without having more context. The entire conflict is based around Chise just straight up becoming a living weapon against her will. Is there something that suggests women should not want this, as opposed to just any person on earth?

It seems to me that these to examples from the Real Life section are redundant, and I think they ought to be merged:
  • Nazi Germany was well known for this. In fact, the famous German phrase "Kinder, Küche, Kirche" (translated as "children, kitchen, church") is often attributed to the Nazi Party.
  • East Germany was a thoroughly repressive, Orwellian police state run by Communist overlords. Yet it also had ample opportunities for career-minded women and a robust platform of social services to help them, utterly trouncing the conservative West Germany of the 1950s. It's almost like the Communists were deliberately trying to spite the former, ultraconservative regime. Post-unificaton, many people pointed out the new, "liberal" attitudes were a step backwards for the east, particularly obvious when the pre-war 'Kinder, Kirche, Küche'note  slogan reappeared to discourage women from continuing to work.

I find it hard to believe that the trope namer of "stay in the kitchen" is an obscure Japanese pornographic video game. Anyone has any evidence for or against such a claim?

Just because it probably wasn't the first usage doesn't mean it wasn't the example that the trope draws its name from.
