Meat and Masculinity

Have you come across men in your advocacy who think that going vegan or even cutting down on meat will make them less masculine? Cultural ideals of masculinity have a big impact on many of men's attitudes and behaviors regarding things like diet. Specifically, they tend to express a variety of rationalizations for eating meat that women don't often express, and thus they tend to eat meat more frequently. Fortunately, recent research suggests that there may be several ways we can maximize our chances of reaching these men.
