Pass the Meat Please!

Apparently, men are causing much more harm to the environment than women are. Why, you ask. Well, we eat too much meat and drink too much beer.

A UK study suggested that men—through meat and alcohol consumption—are said to contribute 41 percent more to climate change than women do.

And another study showed that the way men spend money caused 16 percent more emissions than the way women spend money, even though the money being spent was very similar. Apparently, men spend too much money on fuel for things like, well, hunting and fishing, to get meat.

Now our favourite friends over at PETA are demanding that men who eat meat should be banned from having sex, claiming that devouring “sausages and schnitzel is a symptom of ‘toxic masculinity’ which is killing the planet.”

PETA demanded a “sex ban for all meat-eating men” and called on women to “go on a sex strike to save the world.”

“There is scientific proof that toxic masculinity also harms the climate. Therefore, a hefty meat tax of 41 percent for men would be appropriate. A ban on sex or procreation for all meat-eating men would also be purposeful in this context,” said PETA.

Apparently, men eat meat because it’s a form of masculinity, and it shows that we are tough sumbitches. Hmmm... I always thought I ate meat because it tastes so darn good, not because it made me a tough sumbitch. Fruits and vegetable be damned, give me a steak, extra bloody!

According to Macken Murphy and published in Tenderly, ‘a vegan magazine that’s hopefully devoted to delicious plants, liberated animals, and leading a radical, sustainable, joyful life’, “This bizarre male obsession with meat might seem to be a harmless expression of fragility, but it has real consequences. Meat consumption is the number one cause of animal cruelty worldwide, and eating animals is a contributing factor to climate change, world hunger, antibiotics resistance, deforestation, worker exploitation, indigenous land theft, pollution, mass extinction, water usage, zoonotic diseases—I could go on. If cantaloupes were causing these problems, would they still be on the shelves?”

Murphy also suggests, “Steaks are the new cigarettes—they make you look manly until you look sickly.”


It’s understandable that PETA is against hunting, or should I say, all forms of animal use, especially the eating part, because that’s their shtick and how they make their money. But suggesting that “women should go on a sex strike to save the world” goes much deeper than that; it’s living on the edge of human depopulation.
PETA added, “Every ‘child not born’ saves 58.6 tons of CO2 equivalents per year.”

Now, I dunno about you, but aren’t we supposed to be saving the world for those same children?

As Murphy says, “... we should seek to behave in a way that reduces meaningless misery and brings joy to ourselves...”

Okay, I can buy into that. Bring me a rare steak and a pint of beer... that’ll reduce my misery and bring me joy.

Bon appétit!
