A Meaty Subject
We will be celebrating Father’s Day later this month and it got me thinking about how men feel about veganism. I think there is a general preconception and very much outdated concept of meat being linked with masculinity. Meat eating it would seem is still seen very much as a part of a man’s identity. The Vegan Society's survey on this made interesting reading with 63 percent of people who identified as vegan being female, while only 37 percent were male. And this year for Veganuary just 14% of men took up the challenge, this was, however, a 4% rise on the previous year, so not all doom and gloom.
