Fire up the BBQ and grab yourself a big ol’ steak after you read this.
If this doesn’t make you want to eat more meat, I’m not sure what will.
The feminists have a new enemy: Meat.
Oh, yes! Meat fosters the patriarchy or something.
I don’t know it sounds like more nonsense from the leftist man-hating feminists.
Doug is right that leftists hate boys, men, and any semblance of masculinity:
Let’s see what the all the hullaballoo about eating meat is.
A Pennsylvania State University sociology professor recently argued that eating meat perpetuates “hegemonic masculinity” and “gender hegemony.”
In the most recent issue of the Journal of Feminist Geography, professor Anne DeLessio-Parson argues that “hegemonic masculinity implies an imperative to eat meat” and that this helps reify other power hierarchies as well.
Well, I see your problem, it’s a trifecta — sociology professor, feminist, and ‘Journal of Feminist Geography’.
‘The Journal of Feminist Geography’?
What the hell is that? A better question is ‘why’?
Is Geography supposed to be viewed from a feminist perspective?
What does that even mean?
As a female Editor here at ClashDaily, I don’t know what it means.
Does it mean that you don’t use compass points anymore and need to ‘feel’ the pain of the ocean depths, or do you need to ‘paint with all the colors of the wind’?
Here’s more of the incomprehensible babbling:
Vegetarians also contribute to the destabilization of the gender binary, she argued.
“The decision to become vegetarian does not itself destabilize gender, but the subsequent social interactions between vegetarian and meat-eater demand gender enactment—or resistance,” DeLessio-Parson discovered.
“Refusing meat therefore presents opportunities, in each social interaction, for the binary to be called into question,” she said, noting that women, for example, may not consider dating men who eat meat, while male vegetarians might end up spending more time in the kitchen as opposed to outside on the grill, all actions which can destabilize gender norms.
Um… this just reminds me that vegetarians in the animal kingdom generally have a smaller brain while carnivores have a larger brain.
According to this thing called ‘science’, eating meat is a distinct part of being human. Some claim that without eating meat, humans wouldn’t be the modern, verbal, intelligent creatures that we are. (Well, at least some of us are, anyway.)
DeLessio-Parson said that after 5 years living as a vegetarian in Argentina, she realized that refusing meat wasn’t just a lifestyle choice but a ‘feminist act’.
She also makes note of the difference between male meat-eaters and male vegetarians. (I did too, see my note on size of brain above.)
“Women, one of the ways they push back against patriarchy, they say, ‘This is my body. You don’t get to tell me what comes in and out,’” she told Campus Reform, explaining that vegetarianism is a way women can assert their agency and autonomy.
She also noticed characteristics unique to male vegetarians, asserting that although many men in Argentina “still have these very hegemonic masculinity traits,” male vegetarians “seem more egalitarian and respectful” and “more open about talking about how sexism exists.”

So, basically, she’s saying that the less masculine, ‘Beta males’ or ‘Soy Boys’ that are vegetarian are the ones that are more likely to capitulate to the feminist agenda.
It turns out that in a way, DeLessio-Parson is right. Similar studies show the same thing.
Professor Hank Rothgerber , who has published his research in the journal Men and Masculinity, said that meat eating was linked with ‘manhood, power, and virility’.
He told NBC news: ‘There is a group of manly men who swear off what they call chick food, and they seek a double whopper to declare their manhood.’
He added: ‘Meat consumption is a symbol of patriarchy resulting from its long-held alliance with manhood, power, and virility.’…
…The men questioned in the study said animals ‘just taste too good to not eat them’ whereas women were more apologetic about eating meat.
The study surveyed 125 undergraduate psychology students for one study, and 89 for the second…
It seems that even vegetarian women see vegetarian men as less masculine:
Researchers from the University of British Columbia revealed that vegetarian men are seen as wimps and less macho than those who like tucking into a steak – even by women who do not eat meat themselves.
They gave hundreds of young men and women descriptions of fictional students varying only according to diet, and asked them to rate aspects of their personalities.
The vegetarian characters were seen as being more virtuous.
And further questioning revealed that men who do not eat meat were also viewed as less masculine than the others – even by vegetarians.
Another study from Cornell has the best conclusion:
And last year, a team from the University of Pennsylvania and Brian Wansink of Cornell University showed consumers link meat with masculinity and concluded was ‘a strong, traditional, macho, bicep-flexing, all-American food.‘

I’ll take the badass, meat-eating man, thank you.
Aren’t you tired of the rabid vegetarians and vegans trying to guilt you out of eating meat?
After all, it’s ‘My Body, My Choice’, right?

Now pardon me, I have to go and make a few racks of ribs for dinner. I have to think of what’s best for my husband and my teen boys.
Otherwise, who will?
