Meat — toxic masculinity

Eating meat promotes toxic masculinity, academic journal says

Fox News

An academic journal has published an article by a Ph.D. candidate at Pennsylvania State University that argues eating meat maintains a society where “hegemonic masculinity” is the norm.

Anne DeLessio-Parson, whose article was published in Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, based her research on Argentina’s “meat-centric” culture.

“I contend that in such a context, we cannot separate the ways people ‘do vegetarianism’ from how they ‘do gender,’” Anne DeLessio-Parson wrote. “Doing vegetarianism in interactions drives social change, contributing to the de-linking of meat from gender hegemony and revealing the resisting and reworking of gender in food spaces.”

They will absolutely go to any lengths to promote their political agenda, which now does not stop at food. But it seemed to be working all those years for us. Hmmmph.

    Sometimes I have to wonder just how many NUTS we have running around loose. This one is really crazy. I guess to be educated you have to be a mentally ill person these days.

    Vegetarians who don’t eat meat during pregnancy are 3 time more likely to have teens that abuse drugs and alcohol.
    Doesn’t mean it causes it. Just a strong association.
    Just as likely that the kids are having a normal human reaction to their parental vegetarians being insufferable.
