30 Bananas a Day!

The other day my brother said to his girlfriend that giving up meat was a 'female' thing to do. It got me thinking, and there actually are a lot more female vegetarian/vegan people I know in real life and especially on here.

Muscles=protein, protein=meat
mm chicken
mm cancer

Peoople are uneducated, but the stereotype surrounding veganism prevents men in particular from even considering it. We shouldn't have to 'sell' veganism, but this is why guys like Harley are such good role models, pretty masculine.

First we need to challenge this feminine stereotype on a large scale, and then the education will come.

Tell him that meat eaters have less testosterone than vegans. Who's the girl now ?

Makes me cringe if another bloke says that you need protein for muscle, especially as their usually fat or out of shape, being a man is being confident in who you are and what you stand for and not giving a **** of what people think of you. 

Harley comes across as masculine because he could give a monkeys what people think of him, it's just confidence.

According to Joseph Keon, author of Whitewash, we get a tremendous amount of estrogen in our diet from meat and especially dairy.  If that is true, then non vegans, both male and female would theoretically be walking around with higher estrogen levels than vegans.  

So it seams reasonable to believe that men who eat loads of animal protein, especially dairy are much more feminized than men who don't.  So much for all those "whey protein shakes"!!

Sad to say that excess estrogen is implicated in prostate cancers, so making the wrong choices can have pretty devastating results regardless of how manly you might feel.  Having your prostate removed and leaving you unable to achieve an erection, not to mention wearing a diaper the rest of your life doesn't sound like a very manly experience either.

And clogged up arteries mean reduced blood flow, which means reduced performance in other ways that a man might want to be able to perform. In fact, impotence is often the first symptom of an impending heart attack. Something to think about.

But how to convince these "manly" meat eating men?  Good question!

"Manly meat eating men", lol  wtf is going on in the world.

There is nothing manly about preying on those who cannot defend themselves from the comfort of one's local Burger King.

Or, as Banksy put it...

I don't think that's true, I read a statistic that in reality there are more male Vegans in the world than females, but more female Vegetarians. 

- Sorry can't remember where I read that

For some reason "Compassion" seems to be a more feminine stereotype... But I think it's just that... a stereotype.
