“Off the bat, most people would think of a male vegetarian as unmanly or too sensitive, while others would look up to this and see compassion and a clear conscious. Then again, what’s wrong with being sensitive and actually caring about the life of another being? Does our society think this way because of man’s prehistoric biology of being hunters or is it really our culture’s expectations that are being favored?
And while men have been developed with hunting in their genes, women have been developed with the need to nurture and bear a child. Is this why it seems more women have empathy towards the treatment of animals; the fact that they feel for not only the animal, but the mother’s of these helpless beings? Or, is it that because of a man’s biological need of more calories due to more muscle tone and larger organs that makes him less likely to even consider vegetarianism, even for his health?”
