Apparently, eating meat is “toxic masculinity”

Apparently, eating meat is “toxic masculinity”…yes really…and it reinforces the patriarchy:

Fox News host Jesse Watters debated a professor over the weekend who claimed that eating meat reinforces “toxic masculinity” and patriarchy. But it’s what a producer did during the segment that left Watters smiling for the debate.

Anne DeLessio-Parson, a Ph.D. candidate at Pennsylvania State University, recently claimed in an academic journal that eating meat reinforces patriarchy. She came to the conclusion that abstaining from meat is an act of feminism after spending years in Argentina as a vegetarian. Watters wanted to know how exactly meat reinforced “toxic masculinity.”

Eating meat is “one of the ways…to reinforce existing social structures, including patriarchy,” DeLessio-Parson explained. When asked to elaborate, DeLessio-Parson said she didn’t have enough time to do so. However, she explained that all individual decisions humans make are inherently political and eating meat is associated with patriarchy.

Then one of Watters’ producers walked on set and laid a plate with a fat, juicy (rare) steak on the table in front of DeLessio-Parson.

“So, I’m having a steak right now because I’m starving,” Watters said, before eating the steak. But first, he asked another question: Is eating meat bad?

DeLessio-Parson explained that eating meat is only OK if you hunt the animal yourself. But if you eat meat from an animal you didn’t kill, then “you just enjoy the benefits and the blood is on someone else’s hands.”

“And that’s not very fair,” she explained. “It would be great if we had universal health care for our animals.”

“You clearly have some things around who you are that protect you, and I think especially, like financial resources to do things like buy really expensive steaks so that’s also part of the problem,” DeLessio-Parson later told Watters. “That some people are really taking up more than their fair share.”

I love it when he asks if God didn’t want us to eat animals why did be make them so delicious?

They walk among us.
